UMUAHIA—ABIA State government weekend denied setting up a panel to select the next governor of the state as the incumbent, Theodore Orji, dismissed insinuations he had anointed a candidate to succeed him in 2015.

A national daily (not Vanguard) had last week reported that Governor Theodore Orji had set up a 17-man panel, allegedly headed by his kinsman and sacked party national chairman,  to select his successor.
But the government denied the existence of such a panel in a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Orji, Charles Ajunwa.
