A source close to one of the local government chairmen who craved anonimity revealed that the State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu allegedly acting through the State Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Chief Christopher Enweremadu had offered each Local Government Chairman and his deputy in the State, the sum of One Million Naira (N1m) for them to sign documents confirming that the 3 man adhoc elections held in their respective councils. This meeting was reportedly held in the Governor’s country home.

It would be recalled that Sen. Enyinnaya Abaribe, Senate Minority Leader and a frontline Governorship Aspirant of the PDP led other aspirants like the incumbent Deputy Governor of Abia State; Rt. Hon. Sir Ude Oko Chukwu and Sen. Emma Nwaka, former Chairman of the Party in the State among others to formerly complain to the National Leadership of the Party that; contrary to the false report by the party in Abia, no 3 man adhoc elections were held in the 184 wards in the State.
