Ekweremadu bombs AGF, Says Obono-Obla should first be prosecuted for certificate forgery

‘First prosecute Obono-Obla over his established forgery case  before prosecuting me’,  Ekweremadu tells attorney general
By Steve Oko
The Deputy Senate President, Dr. Ike Ekweremadu,  has told the Attorney General of the federation to first prosecute the Chairman of the Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property, Mr. Ofem Obono-Obla, “over his established cases of forgery” instead of dissipating energy to look for unsubstantiated charges against him (Ekweremadu).

Ekweremadu who spoke through  his Media Adviser, Uche Anichukwu,  accused Obono-Obla of sinister plots to smear his name through trumped up charges.
 
The Deputy Senate President who was reacting to a  suit filed against him by the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation on behalf of the SPIP over his refusal to declare his assets to the panel said Obono-Obla should rather be the one facing trial if the federal government was sincere with its anti -graft crusade.
 
The Deputy Senate President in a press statement issued Wednesday dismissed as laughable and malicious the charges preferred against him by government. 
” His words :” I expect the Attorney-General to channel his energy to prosecuting Obono-Obla Panel over his established case of forgery of his Senior School Certificate result instead of this politically-motivated prosecution and smear campaign.

Ekweremadu raised alarm over  alleged plot by the Obono-Obla panel to disrepute him at all cost.

The statement read in part : “Let me reaffirm to Nigerians and my supporters that I have no assets declaration case to answer. The Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria requires public office holders to declare their assets every four years, a requirement which I fulfilled.

” The panel requested and obtained copies of my Assets Declaration Form from the Code of Conduct Bureau where everything is stated in black and white.

“For emphasis, all my assets were fully and comprehensively declared to the Code of Conduct Bureau. What is at issue here is that the SPIP had forwarded fresh assets declaration forms to me to fill contrary to the position of the 1999 Constitution, a demand I refused to oblige because it is clearly unconstitutional.

“It is this refusal to disobey the Constitution that I am now being charged for. It was left to Nigerians to see the politics of the so-called charges in my case.
