The Attorney-General made the revelation when he played host to the members of the APC media support Group in his office.

He said that the more is to sanitize the system of corruption, and also create an opportunity for the younger ones to grow and therefore should not be seen as a witch haunt as the shared prosperity govt of senator Hope Uzodinma is committed to ensuring that the dividend of democracy gets to every citizen of the state. Hence would not close her eyes and allow few individuals to make away with funds that belong to the entire citizens.

He regretted a situation where someone who suppose to have returned over 6 years ago is still in the service, names of head workers still appear on govt payroll in addition to fake workers and wondered what would be the fate of younger generations if this is allowed to continue.

He however appealed to the genuine civil servants and pensioners in the state to exercise little patients to enable govt to conclude on her verification. Sacrifice and enjoy forever he stressed.

Barr. Akaolisa used the opportunity to call on Imolites especially those who were unlawfully detained, or incarcerated in any of our police stations or other security Agencies to approach the state ministry of Justice for legal assistances a ministry whose mandate is to aid those sufferings from unlawful suppression and captivity, as the present administration has resolved to make her citizens enjoy a life free of unlawful Intimidations and harassment, adding that state govt is partnering with International Communities to ensure Justice through rule of law and due process.

Barr. Akaolisa who narrated their political journey to the present positions said that he gave thanks to God Almighty for his love and kindness towards them, whom according to him, was preparing a good place for them without their knowledge as human beings when it appeared as if the world has ended for them politically and they were seen and treated as political orphans. But today he strongly believes in the philosophy that one’s destiny can be delayed but can never be denied.

He commended the media group for their support and steadfastness throughout the turbulent period, describing them as a true partner and noted that as stakeholders in this administration they should not relent in doing what they know how to do best as one does not destroy a house he builds and assured that they will never be forgotten.

Earlier, the coordinator of the group Amb. Reuben Nwankwo told the Commissioner that they come to celebrate with him on his appointment, appreciate his contributions during 2019 general elections and to encourage him to continue to do his best for the development of Imo State.
