The Abia State Government has debunked a report trending on social media, especially X, that Governor Alex Otti had sued the Nigerian government and President Bola Tinubu at the International Criminal Court, ICC.

The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Kazie Uko, in a press release on Friday described the reports as the handiwork of rabble rousers.

According to Uko, the fake news claimed 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 and an international airport in Abia.


Uko said, “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 Abia State Government, therefore, advised the general public to ignore the fake report.
