The Oasis Reporters
June 25, 2020
Deputy Chief of Staff in the Office of Abia State Deputy Governor, Sir Don Ubani, has responded to a reported demonstration by some Ogwe-Asa Women against an unfounded rumour that Abia State Government intended to establish a Ruga settlement at the moribund Ogwe Golden Chicken, in Ukwa-West Local Government Area, made it categorically clear that the Government of Dr Okezie Ikpeazu has never, at any time, contemplated even the faintest idea of having anything to do with Ruga in the State.
He therefore called on Abians to always cross-check whatever rumour they hear before believing or spreading it.
While giving the piece of advice, Sir Ubani unequivocally asserted that the rumour on the establishment of Ruga at Ogwe-Asa or even any other part of the State is not only false but full of mischief and deceit. Besides, Sir Ubani said he had earlier led a delegation of some leaders of Asa, including some prominent indigenes of Ogwe, to the Commissioner for Agriculture who successfully dispelled the rumour and, before the said demonstration and therefore, wondered why the women still embarked on the demonstration.
The Deputy Chief of Staff, therefore, called on the people of Abia State in general and Asa people in particular to disregard any rumour on Ruga in the State, as it is a blatant lie.
