Abia Govt Rattled Over Sir Udensi's Plan To Lift Burden Of Indebted Pensioners, Calls Him 'Phone Seller'

Abia State government has taken a swipe over decision of Interpol Systems Consultant in Nigeria, Sir Chikwe Udensi’s decision to put smile of faces of indebted Abia pensioners by offering them some stipends to celebrate Christmas.

The Interpol chief has earlier requested to list of pensioners in the state to commence modalities to alleviate their plights even as Christmas approaches.

The pensioners are said to be indebted to backlog of 5 months and above.

Addressing a press conference in Umuahia recently, the state Commissioner for Information, Prince Eze Chikamnayo said Sir Udensi is not a security expert as he claimed, saying he may be a gate man or selling phones and its accessories.

Chikamnayo said the decision of Udensi to seek the list of pensioners is politically motivated, saying he did not follow due process.

He described the move as a crass political opportunism, noting that Sir Udensi is doing so ahead of 2023 election.

Sir Udensi who had earlier held a meeting with the leadership of Abia pensioners said he will not accord relevance to the state government’s claim with a response.

Even though he had obtained accurate list of pensioners in four out of the 17 local government areas, he expressed optimism that he will obtain full list of pensioners in the state even as the government denies him access to the list.

He said Prince Chikamnayo, the Commissioner for Information does not worth the response of his aides, saying 2023 will give them the answer.
