No move to sack AIRS Chairman – APGA Chief


The story about sacking the Chairman of the Anambra State Internal Revenue Service (AIRS) is fake news, a chieftain of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chinedu Obigwe, has said.

Describing the news report in some media outfits ( not the RAZOR) as
“complete cock and bull story”,Obigwe said, Anambra State is peaceful for such tension now.

He said,”There is nothing like tension in Anambra because the state is peaceful and the good people of the state are enjoying the dividends of good governance being delivered by Governor Soludo administration.

“What I will say that I know very well is that Governor Soludo has confidence in the Chairman of AIRS hence the reason he confirmed his appointment recently.

“Chief Greg Ezeilo as Chairman of AIRS has the full support of the Governor to run the agency in such a way that it will be more productive and the Governor expects every other staff of the agency to submit to his leadership of the agency.

“Doing otherwise is insubordination and the Governor will not tolerate that.

Continuing, Obigwe said, The mindset of the Governor is that in an organisation, the Chairman is the head of that organisation and whomever that is Chairman of an organisation must be accorded his well deserved respect and everybody working under Chairman are expected to take instructions from him.

“He is also of the belief that anybody working at cross purposes with a Chairman of an organisation is not supposed to be in that organisation.

“As at today , Chief Greg Ezeilo is the Chairman of AIRS and anybody working at cross purposes with him is doing so at his own peril because if Governor Soludo decides to take action, he will not spare the person.

“What AIRS has is one Chairman as captain and their cannot be two captain in a boat.

“As for performance, Chief Greg Ezeilo is doing very well because he is result oriented.

“Governor Soludo is interested in the result they are getting for the State because the IGR they are generating is what he is using to develop Anambra State.

“I will advise the general public to disregard the above referred news report because there is nothing like tension in Anambra. “
