The Senator representing Enugu East, Chimaroke Nnamani, has debunked claims that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is after him.
According to the lawmaker, I just returned after spending five weeks in the United States where I maintain a residence.
He stated this in a statement he personally signed, titled, ‘$41.8million Dollars: No Money Missed From Enugu Coffer… Sen Nnamani.’
I maintain a residence in America and just came back after five weeks. The FBI is not looking for me and no assets of mine have ever been seized in the United States,” the former governor of Enugu State said.
Addressing claims that $41.8m got missing from the coffers of the Enugu State Government while he was governor, Nnamani said the state didn’t have such an amount.
He said, “I never met or inherited the sum of $41.8 million as Governor. Enugu State of 1999 to 2007 did not have $41.8m to be stolen or embezzled.”
He said those behind the claim were quoting a complaint leveled before the Department of Justice associated with usual interim forfeiture, adding that “the interim forfeiture was discharged after Investigation and Judicial Review.”
He warned his detractors to focus on positive things because false accusations will not add value to anyone.
“If my recent political activities make some people uncomfortable, they should know that democracy is a matter of choice. It is an open field, you choose your lane to play. Everyone has a choice; I deserve the right to choose my lane. I do not expect people to infringe on my right of choice,” he said.
