Report of alleged arrest of TETFUND contractor by ICPC false – Management

The management of Fides et Ratio, one of the contractors of TETfund, has debunked the alleged arrest of its chairman, Sir Paul Chukwuma.

Chukwuma was said to be arrested by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) over contract-related matters.

Recall that the information has been circulating on the social media in the last 24 hours that owing to infractions in some contractual agreements, the businessman was arrested by the antigraft agency in Abuja.

Making the clarification via a statement on Thursday evening is the media assistant, Obi Chukwuemeka who said, “Our attention has been drawn to a false report circulating on Anambra social media platforms and other news outlets, alleging that Sir Paul Chukwuma is being detained by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC). We wish to state categorically that this report is entirely false.”
The statement stated further that Sir Paul Chukwuma is currently in his office and has always complied with contractual obligations and adhered to the principles of accountability and transparency.

It urged the general public to disregard any such rumour as the Fides et Ratio is willing to cooperate with ICPC on matters of accountability in order to demonstrate adherence to regulatory provisions, as the company is built on transparency and respect for the law.
