Former Governor of Abia State, who rigged himself into Senate in Abia Central, Senator Theodore Ahamefula Orji, in his usual nocturnal activities, visits Justice Ibrahim Auta, OFR (Chief Judge) Federal High Court in his Abuja resident.

Though the target of the visit is yet to confirm, but critics are of the belief that the visit is to induce Justice Auta, in order to favour his surrogate– Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, in his ongoing tax fraud trial.

The critics are of this view, because the visit comes in a very susceptible time, when Senator Orji’ godson -Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu, has scores to settle at the federal high court, and secondly T.A.Orji is rumoured to be good at bribing Judges.

One of the critics who comments on the condition of anonymity asks “why should Ochendo visits the Hon. Justice, if not to give him bribe as usual, he would not like the mountain of stealing done under him to expose, so he might be willing to spend his last kobo to secure Gov. Ikpeazu for his selfish reasons. Barr. Friday Nwosu and Dr. Uchechukwu Ogah should be mindful of Senator T.A.Orji’s romance with Hon Justice Auta”

Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu has a losable tax fraud case at the federal high court, which was petitioned by Barr. Friday Nwosu and Dr.Uchechukwu Sampson Ogah, both from PDP, asking the court to nullify Dr.Ikpeazu candidature over the tax fraud.

The case has been tried before, and it was quashed by the Judge handling it, stating that tax fraud cannot be basis of nullifying a candidate in an election, but when the same matter was appealed at the Supreme Court, it was ordered to be retried speedily.

The crux of the matter started during PDP Primaries, when Dr. Ikpeazu presented a fake tax certificate, which was dated to have been paid on Saturday, when tax offices were closed. Though it was exposed, but he denied it, claiming that it was a mistake of identity, but the petitioners maintain their stands, asking the court to nullify him.

It is observable that the former governor, who is being accused looting the treasury of Abia State to empty for 8 year (2007-2015), planted Gov.Ikpeazu as his puppet, is not only interested in Gov. Ikpeazu tax fraud, but also more interested in covering his thievery in Abia State.

There have been many petitions against Senator T.A. Orji, asking EFCC to investigate the deals of the former governor, but he is doing everything to secure Gov. Ikpeazu’s future, which will not support him to be tried.
