Umahi Suspends Ebonyi Auditors General



Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi state on Monday announced the suspension of the State Auditor General, Mr. Innocent Nweda.

The suspension hammer also fell on the Auditor General in charge of Local Government Areas in the State, Mr. George Ukpai.

The letters announcing their indefinite suspensions were handed to them on Monday.

Secretary to Ebonyi state government, Dr Kenneth Ugbala, in a release made available to newsmen in Abakaliki, said the suspension was with immediate effect.

They were said to have failed in the discharge of their duties.

The suspension was also for their alleged inability to prepare and produce the annual audited accounts of the State and Local governments.
