Abia: UCCIMA disowns Umuahia chamber movement

By Steve Oko

Umuahia Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mimes and Agriculture (UCCIMA), has distanced itself from a group known as Umuahia Chamber Movement, and a purported trade exhibition by the group.

UCCIMA President, Chief Chidi Aruoma, in a press statement Thursday, said that those behind the said Umuahia Chamber Movement exhibition were not their members, nor the group known to UCCIMA.

While urging members of the public to be weary of impersonators, he threatened legal action against anyone found impersonating UCCIMA.

The statement read in part:”My attention has been drawn to an illegal and unauthorized gathering of some people in the name of Umuahia Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (UCCIMA) somewhere in Umuahia and associating our esteemed Chamber with the sobriquet “Umuahia Chamber Movement” and wish to state as follows:

“That no Meeting or Exhibition under the banner of Umuahia Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (UCCIMA) was authorized by me as the President of the Chamber.

“That UCCIMA does not have an affiliate by the name “Umuahia Chamber Movement” or whatever name called. That the purported meeting and Exhibition held somewhere in Umuahia on June 26, 2024 under signpost of “Umuahia Chamber Movement” were not from UCCIMA, therefore, their outcome stands void.

“That the names of the attendees to the meeting and organizers of the Exhibition are not in the Chambers Register which is in my custody. No group can hold a meeting or organize an Exhibition under the ensign of UCCIMA without being first a member. That no group has the right to associate the Chamber with any affiliate association like the one above without the authorization of Chamber.

“That the general public particularly the Abia State Government, Commissioner for Trade, Commerce and Industry, organized private sector (OPS), Industrialists and Entrepreneurs in Umuahia and environs including investors across Nigeria are hereby informed to be wary of this group that goes by the name of Umuahia Chamber Movement.

” We will henceforth use legal actions on anyone or group of persons who is found parading themselves with the name Umuahia Chamber of Commerce.

“The use of Umuahia Chamber of Commerce registered logo by the said movement is fraudulent, let everyone be guided.”
