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.
“The Office of the AGF should not allow itself to be used in filing malevolent and unconstitutional charges that destroy our democracy and make a mockery of our judicial system.”
