Nwoye tasks Obiano on N20m donation to communities
The Dr. Tony Nwoye Campaign Organisation has blasted Willie Obiano administration over claim that it had distributed N20 million to 177 communities for development projects.
Noting that the total amount of money allegedly distributed is a little fraction of the more than N70 billion total allocation to the local governments, the Nwoye Campaign said it showed the deceit that is inherent in the Willie Obiano administration.
The Nwoye Campaign Organisation in a statement issued by its spokesman,Nonso Madu said: “It is a thing of joy for us that the Willie Obiano administration, after much pressure to show what it did in the last three and half years, came out to say that it donated N20 million projects to 177 communities in the state.
“We have been waiting for the government to make this mistake as it would confirm to Anambarians the deceit that we have been saying is the hallmark of this administration.
“After collecting an estimated N70 billion in local government statutory allocations and “donating” N3.6 billion to the communities, the question Ndi Anambra now want the governor to answer is: where is the balance of the estimated N66.4 billion?
“Fact is that the N20 million per community for project of their choice is nothing but a deliberate act of deceit to steal funds accruable to our local communities from the federation account.
“Fraud is when you collect a total of N6,647,448,978 from the federation account for Idemili North Local Government Area and give N20 million each to Abatete, Abacha, Obosi, Ogidi, Eziowelle, Ideani, Oraukwu, Uke, Nkpor and Umoji to do projects of their choice.
Where is the balance?”
“In Idemili North alone the Willie Obiano’s administration’s biggest achievement for three and half years is that it has taken over N4 billion naira belonging to the people.
“On the 18th of November, Idemili people will definitely say No to the illegal diversion of their share of the federal revenue allocation into private pockets.
“Fraud is when you collect N5,789,580,449 billion for Ihiala LGA and donate N20 million naira each to Azia, Amorka, Ihiala, Iseke, Lilu, Mbosi, Okija, Orsumoghu and Uli. On the 18th of November Ihiala people will talk with their votes and ask Willie Obiano to account for over N4 billion naira of their funds which have disappeared into the air under his watch.”
“Fraud is when you collect 4,327,571,060 billion from the Revenue account for Nnewi North and magnanimously gave Nnewi Town a whole sum of 20 million to execute a project of their choice. On the 18th of November Obiano will definitely understand the ingenuity of an average Nnewi man. They will ask questions with their votes.
“Fact is that for over three and half years the Willie Obiano Administration has collected over N70 billion share of Anambra State local government allocation and donated N20 million to 177 communities totaling N3.6 billion. Removing the payment of salaries, the Willie Obiano administration has mismanaged more than N60 billion of local government funds and Ndi Anambra will ask
Dr. Nwoye believes that the local government system is the bedrock of our democracy and that they provide the channel of communication and development between our local communities and the government.
The Nwoye administration will conduct local government elections to allow the people enthrone those they want to administer their affairs and also their funds for the development of our rural communities.
