But the special adviser to Dr. Otti, Mr. Ferdinand Ekeoma, slammed the commissioner for Post Basic Education for not being abreast of what was happening in schools under his supervision.

He said the venue of the proposed rally did not belong to the state government, but a private religious institution, Aba-Ngwa North Diocese of the Anglican Communion, which he noted “has since given us approval after payment was made and received.”

Ekeoma said the school was on midterm break, which was one of the things the party considered before the date was chosen.

“We don’t expect the state government to be aware of this because they have no interest in the affairs of the school.”
