I Didn't Sue FG - Otti

The Governor of Abia State, Alex Otti, has stated that contrary to the rumours flying around, he did not sue President Bola Tinubu or the Federal Government, News About Nigeria reports.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Kazie Uko, the governor dismissed the reports as fake news and urged members of the public to disregard them.

A rumour had surfaced stating that Gov. Alex Otti sued the Nigerian government and President Bola Tinubu at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for allegedly refusing to grant the request of the Abia Governor to establish a seaport as well as an international airport in Abia.

Otti, however, debunked this, stating that it contained absolutely no truth.

He noted that his administration was still on the drawing board for the proposed seaport while the Federal Government provided for an airstrip in Abia in the current budget.

“Abia State Government’s attention has been drawn to a fake report trending on social media, especially X (formerly Twitter), that the governor had sued the Nigerian government and President Bola Tinubu at the International Criminal Court (ICC).

“The fake news claims that Governor Otti sued the Federal Republic of Nigeria and President Tinubu for allegedly refusing to grant the request of the Abia Governor to establish a seaport as well as an international airport in Abia.

“Another part of the badly stringed and concocted report alleges that Governor Otti had also placed a ban on businesses operated by Nigerians of northern extraction resident in Abia State until the approval for the establishment of the said seaport and international airport is granted,” the statement partly reads.
