The Imo State House of Assembly has set up a committee for the recovery of “stolen government properties.”
Speaker of the state Assembly, Chiji Collins, confirmed this Monday in Owerri while inspecting the Assembly complex.
He stated that massive looting of the Assembly complex, Speaker and Deputy Speaker’s Lodge led to the inauguration of the committee.
“We have finished touring the House of Assembly complex, the speaker’s lodge and that of the deputy speaker. The level of decay is highly unbelievable. The complex was renovated last year but it is very unfortunate that it has broken down with cracks up and down. It is clear that those who undertook the renovation work did a very poor job,” he said.
“But beyond the dilapidated state of the complex, we have set up a committee to begin the recovery of stolen government properties belonging to the Imo state House of Assembly.
“The lawmakers were ready to ensure that every government property illegally taken by people were recovered. Under my watch, the lawmakers would engage in legislative activities that would advance the fortunes of the state.”
