Our attention has been drawn to a malicious attempt by some faceless individuals who go with the name:  Abia Group For Good Governance (AGG) the publications which were intended at tarnishing the image and reputation of Mr. Obinna Oriaku, the hard working immediate past commissioner for finance, Abia state through some misleading publications online and in the newspapers, one of such sponsored publication is an article Captioned: Why Obinna Oriaku Should Be Dropped From IKpeazu’s Cabinet.

These groups of faceless individuals from our findings are nothing but those who have benefited from the corruption that has pervaded all institutions of government and will do everything humanly possible to frustrate every honest effort at ridding our system off such practices that has prevented the state from positive advancement, that Mr. Obinna Oriaku has introduced measures aimed at ensuring that every genuine worker gets his deserved pay while blocking fraudsters whose daily trade is to harvest from the corruption they have intentionally implanted in various government units, departments, ministries and agencies is commendable and rather than recommend him for sack we as a group of patriotic Abians are recommending him for reappointment to a higher office given the thoroughness and professionalism that he has brought into the state financial dealings since he assumed office as the manager of the state’s financial cubicle.

We are aware that the sponsors of the attacks are people who are today frustrated because of the reforms that he has brought into the system which to a great extent has brought sanity into the states financials and have professionally unplugged the nectar which they connected into the state’s coffers, he has put in measures that has checkmated salary padding and other financial malfeasance that created over bloated workforce and humongous wage bill, making it difficult for governments to meet up with civil servants salaries.

These set of individuals never wished the state progress and can go to any length to eliminate any obstacle in between them and the states purse including formulating unfounded lies and propaganda.

Mr. Oriaku is a thorough bred technocrat who right from his days in the banking industry had always insisted that things must be done rightly and has refused to allow a few corrupt elements to mess up any system that he is involved in, the discipline, professionalism and reforms that he has introduced into the Abia economy had saved the state millions of naira and that had endeared him to Governor Ikpeazu hence the futile efforts of some corrupt elements in the corridors of power to place him on collision course with the governor by claiming that he has the ambition to contest for governorship come 2023 so as to give way for them to have a field day and turn the states treasury into their honey pot.

Mr. Oriaku is an accomplished banker with an unblemished record of honesty and transparency, who possesses a track record of sterling performance, he had maintained close working relationship with different state governments and had always come out highly recommended.

We are not surprised about the attacks because we are aware that corruption will always fight back once it is attacked.

We want to use this medium to inform the general public to disregard the smear campaign against him, and to also inform Abians that Hon. Oriaku had maintained an impeccable reputation in the discharge of his duties and needs to be encouraged.

Hon. Oriaku is an asset in Dr. Ikpeazu’s administration, we challenge the cowards behind the attacks to come open and join the hard working finance commissioner to sanitize the system and rid it of corruption for the betterment of the state and its citizenry.
