The Youths in Abia state have taken to the streets of Umuahia, asking Governor Okezie Ikpeazu to recall his suspended Chief Of Staff, Anthony Agbazuere.
The Abia governor had on December 6 ordered the immediate suspension of Agbazuere following a viral video that captured him spraying naira notes on a controversial Nigerian prophet, Odumeje, inside the Government House.
Speaking to Channels Television on Monday, the youths noted that the Chief of Staff had abused his office by spraying cash on his guest during visiting hours.
The leader of the group, Donatus Obiukwu, however, explained Governor Ikpeazu is a kind-hearted man, adding that he should indeed ignore calls from those who are enemies of progress and recall the Chief of Staff.
“We know the Chief of Staff goofed by his actions. But we beg you, Governor Ikpeazu, our loving father, please forgive Agbazuere for his offence.
“We are begging you to recall him back because we can guaranty you that such a thing will never happen again, please, our Governor, recall the suspension and give him back his job, ” Obiukwu said.
