The lawmaker representing Oguta state constituency at the Imo State House of Assembly, Frank Ugboma, has described as false, a statement made by the Speaker of the State Assembly, Collins Chiji, that former governor Emeka Ihedioha gave lawmakers refurbished vehicles as official cars.
The speaker made the claim at a state function in Owerri, on Wednesday.
However, Ugboma who is the deputy minority leader of the House, on Thursday urged the speaker to stop “bootlicking.”
“May I inform the general public that the official vehicles under reference are 2019 Brand new Prado Jeeps given to the House members in the year 2019. One wonders how imaginable a 2019 model Prado Jeep could be refurbished in the same 2019.”
