Tiv elites behind removal of AVM Morgan as Chief of Defense Intelligence - Idoma Group

Written By Idoma Television on Tuesday, January 19, 2016 | 5:53:00 AM

A body under the aegis of Idoma Awareness Campaign (IAC) has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to find a replacement from among the Idoma people as Chief of Defense Intelligence, after the retirement of Air Vice Marshall Monday Morgan.
A few weeks ago, AVM Morgan, who is an Idoma man was asked to proceed on terminal leave after which he is expected to retire.

IAC in a press statement signed by its President, Hon. Matthias Egwa and Secretary, Comrade John Ajeh described Morgan’s removal as the handiwork of some Tiv elites.

The group particularly accused Governor Samuel Ortomn and Senator George Akume of firing the embers for the removal of Idoma people from federal positions and their replacement by Tiv people.
“The duo (Akume and Ortom) had used Comrade Daniel Onjeh to write a petition against Chief Ogbeh from being screened and confirmed as Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. This is still fresh in the mind of every Idoma person.”

“It is unfortunate that AVM Morgan has become the first victim of the Akume/Ortom campaign against Idoma sons and daughters occupying federal positions. They are now angling for the removal of Arc Sunday Echono, a Federal Permanent Secretary from Apa Local Government Area.”

Reacting, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Samuel Ortom, Terver Akase said the Governor would not join issues with a faceless group but would wait to react at the appropriate time.
