Niger Delta-Based NGO Indicts Senator Uzodinma For Fraud [Updated]
A non-governmental organisation, Niger Delta Youths for Change/Anti-Corruption has accused Senator Hope Uzodinma of fraud and corruption with respects to a contract awarded to his company in the Niger Delta.
This was contained in a petition submitted at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) headquarters in Abuja on Friday, June 1.
Following the submission of the petition, the group held a press statement at Nixon Luxury Hotel in Abuja, also accusing the Senator of same. [See attached]
The group also made available to the public a fraudulent Cheque to the value of N200 million allegedly issued by Uzodinma.
The group thereafter staged a little protest against the senator, asking the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government, as well as the Ibrahim Magu-led EFCC to extend their anti-corruption drive towards him.
Senator Hope Uzodinma was elected Senator for the Orlu constituency of Imo State under the umbrella of the People’s Democratic Party [PDP].
Recently, however, the Ino State governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha said that the members and leaders of All Progressives Congress [APC] in Imo are not aware that Senator Uzodinma has joined the party.
