The Senator representing Abia Central in the National Assembly, Theodore Orji, has denied claims that the Umutowe Primary School, Olokoro, in Umuahia South Local Government Area, is one of his constituency projects.

He said the project was that of Ikwuano/Umuahia Federal Constituency.

Orji, who spoke through his Senatorial Liaison Officer, Ifeanyi Umere, said the project in question was that of the member representing Ikwuano/Umuahia in the House of Representatives, Sam Onuigbo.

Umere said, “If there is any failure on the project, the House of Representative member is accountable, not the senator who has three House of Representatives members under him and who has successfully and creditably executed his constituency projects within his senatorial district of six Local Government Areas.”
