FRESH scandal is rocking the Imo State House of Assembly following allegations that the Speaker’s Chief of Staff, Mike Ohaka, forged his boss’ signature in a letter to Vice Chancellor of the Imo State University, Prof. Adaobi Obasi, requesting the employment of 46 persons.

A source close to the Speaker said the Vice Chancellor, on receipt of the letter, called the Speaker to complain that the University was not recruiting and cannot employ the people he forwarded their names.

The bemused Speaker, Chiji Collins, denied writing the letter, insisting that he did not recommended anyone for employment.

Efforts to reach the VC were unsuccessful but the university’s spokesman, Ralph Njoku-Obi, denied knowledge of any such letter, saying such letters go to the VC directly.

Meanwhile, Ohaka insisted the letter was signed by the Speaker.

He said: “Yes the letter was signed by the Speaker but the names were not anything close to 46. The Speaker asked us to write the VC to assist few people get a job in the University, and he was the one who signed the letter. I did not forge his signature”.

Collins, however, denied any knowledge of such letter. “I am not aware of any such letter and I didn’t direct anyone to write to the Imo State University or any other institution in the state for job placement. He should show the copy of the letter, if he told you there was a letter I signed,” he said.
