Theodore Orji denies getting pension from Abia government | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Former Abia State Governor Theodore Orji has denied receiving pension from the state.
In a statement by his Media Adviser, Eddie Onuzutike, the former governor said the report was false.

Orji said his name was included among past governors and deputies to get pensions.

The statement reads: “Let it be known to all and sundry that T. A. Orji is not drawing any such funds from Abia State, knowing the implications of such act.

“As a man who went through the rungs of the civil service ladder – from Administrative Officer to Permanent Secretary – he is aware of the code guiding retirement of officers and so would not violate same.

“It is an avowed code and the journalistic maxim that when in doubt, one should not publish. This is still applicable and should be judiciously adhered to. Reporters and media houses should investigate properly before publishing.

“In the case above, the medium is hereby advised to apologise for the huge embarrassment from the error and desist from such publications to avoid unnecessary legal actions applicable to such misleading information.”
