Enugu state government has dismissed the media report that the government through Enugu State Capital Territory Development Authority (ECTDA) wants to demolish the house of the former governor, Sullivan Chime saying there are no such plans.
A media report emerged Wednesday that the state government had concluded plans to pull down the perimeter fence of the house of the former governor in the ongoing effort of the state government to restore the master plan of the capital of the state.
A staff of ECTDA who spoke to our correspondent described the report as a malicious publication by some mischievous fellow as there is no truth in it.
Asked if the house of the ex-governor has been marked for possible demolition as reported, the fellow who doesn’t want his name in print said the information is false and a figment of the imagination of whoever authored such article.
He said this could be one of the ways some disgruntled journalists in the state wish to set the state ablaze and their chosen route is unprofessional and irritating to say the least because the report is a fallacious one.
in his reaction, the Chairman of ECTDA, Ken Onoh, said emphatically, that there was no such plan stressing that he as the chairman of the agency is not aware of such development neither is the agency, aware of such.
“Good evening Sir, I personally, am not aware of such development neither is ECTDA aware of such” Mr. Onoh said via SMS.
