Meanwhile, the Okoi Obono-Obla Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property said in an ex parte application filed on behalf of the Federal Government before the court that the lawmaker failed to declare of the said properties in its assets declaration forms dated June 1, 2007 and June 1, 2015.
However, Senator Ekweremadu in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Uche Anichukwu reiterated that he had declared all his assets with the Code of Conduct Bureau as required by law… “The so-called panel sought and obtained his Assets Declaration Forms but could not look at them since it is clearly out on a vendetta and smear campaign. This is clearly part of the politics of 2019. The senator has, nevertheless, briefed his lawyers and will meet the panel in court.”
