The Abia State Government has denied spending over N900 million on the feeding and welfare of Governor Alex Otti from July to September 2023.
Earlier, reports emerged that a budget performance report indicated that the government spent N927 million within three months on refreshments and meals, allowance, settlement of honorarium and welfare packages.
As a result, some Nigerians took to social media, wondering how such amounts of money could have been spent in the space of three months, in view of current economic realities.
However, in a statement, the media aides to the governor, Ferdinand Ekeoma and Kazie Uko, described the reports as false.
