Abia State Governor, Dr. Alex Otti has denied suing President Bola Tinubu at the International Criminal Court (ICC) over the President’s refusal to grant his request to establish a seaport as well as an international airport in the state.

This is in response to a social media report, which the chief press secretary to the Governor, Kazie Uko in a statement made available to ABN TV, said is false, urging the public to ignore it.

According to Uko, “The fake news claims that Governor Otti sued the Federal Republic of Nigeria and President Tinubu for allegedly refusing to grant the request of the Abia Governor to establish a seaport as well as an international airport in Abia.


“Another part of the badly stringed and concocted report alleges that Governor Otti had also placed a ban on businesses operated by Nigerians of northern extraction resident in Abia State, until the approval for the establishment of the said seaport and international airport is granted.

“There is absolutely no truth in this wickedly contrived fable. We are still on the drawing board on the proposed seaport while the Federal Government provided for an airstrip in Abia in the current budget, for which we are grateful.

“The general public is by this statement, therefore, advised to ignore the fake report, treat it for what it is, a trash, and consign it to the waste bin, as it is the handiwork of idle rabble-rousers.”
