The Imo State Government has said it has uncovered an attempt by some fraudulent group of impersonators who are sharing out fake contract forms of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) project to unsuspecting members of the public
A statement signed by Mr.Chibuike Onyeukwu, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, said the impersonators are seeking to drag the name of the Governor, Hon.Emeka Ihedioha to the mud.
“Our findings show that these fraudsters are using a purported WhatsApp page and Facebook handle of the Governor promising to facilitate the award of SDG contracts to unsuspecting members of the public
Mr.Onyeukwu further noted that “they are demanding a registration fee of one hundred and twenty five thousand naria and have in their desperate bid to actualise their fraudulent motives, floated a bank account.
“We strongly advise members of the public to disregard such fraudsters and their fraudulent schemes, designed to tarnish the image of the Governor and his administration.
“We assure members of the public that those behind this act shall be apprehended and will be made to face the full weight of the law” the statement concluded.
