The leadership of the Abia State House of Assembly has cautioned member representing Bende North constituency, Hon Chijioke Chukwu over consistent negative utterances against the present Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, administration in the state.
Recall that Hon Chijioke Chukwu, the Deputy Minority Leader in the Abia Assembly, had challenged the present government on claims of its developmental agenda in the state.
The lawmaker lambasted the Ikpeazu led government of being economical with the truth, insisting that the governor has performed below standard in the infrastructure growth of Abia State.
However, in a press statement signed by the Deputy Speaker and Chairman House Committee on Media, Rt Hon Ifeanyi Uchendu, on behalf of the Speaker, Rt Hon Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji, and issued to NDREPORTERS on Sunday, warned that it will no longer look on while one of its members continue to unduly attack Governor Ikpeazu, whose administration has been making genuine and concerted efforts to resolve the challenges facing Abia State.
“While the Assembly welcomes criticisms, it believes that such should be fair and constructive. The challenges being harped on by Hon Chijioke Chukwu are not peculiar to Abia. And rather than playing cheap politics with the efforts of the government at tackling the issues, genuine leaders are expected to engage constructively. But this is not the case with Hon Chijioke Chukwu.
The Assembly leadership described the activities of Bende North legislator as disruptive and destructive to the people’s oriented government of Abia State.
According to the Abia Assembly, “we hope he desists from such disruptive and destructive tendencies soon enough
