An Abuja-based pro-democracy group, Coalition of Civil Society and Media Executives for Policy Stability (COCMEP), has lambasted Mr. Uche Ogah, a contestant in the Abia State governorship seat over his litigation in the Supreme Court over the alleged tax default against the state Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, describing it as “frivolous, desperation, ridiculous, waste of time, busy body, unnecessary distraction and overheating of the polity in the state.”

A statement signed by COCMEP’s President Innocent Okadigbo, and its Publicity Secretary, Tijjani Abdullahi, yesterday, described as sagacious and a reflection of the truth and true position of the matter; the judgment of the Court of Appeal which set aside and upturned the earlier Justice Abang Okon High Court “controversial, biased and unfortunate judgment on the matter.”

COCMEP which in the statement cleared Ikpeazu of any tax offence, argued that there was no way the governor could have evaded tax and forged tax document because as a civil servant and for all civil servants, their taxes are deducted at source before remittance or payment of the monthly salary.
