The chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state of Anambra, Chief Basil Ejidike, hired the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Awka on Monday to investigate the finances of the state in order to uncover “monumental deception” that is taking place in the state thrives.
He said in a statement signed by his media advisor, Chief Dan Okeke, that the government had acted fraudulently using its billions of naira monthly security vote.
“Anambra as a state has not seen any significant growth or development since the beginning of Governor Willy Obiano’s leadership. The preservation of existing development structures in the country remains unattainable, ”he said.
Ejidike called on the APGA government to account for all funds available to it that are intended for the development of the state.
“The people of Anambra have neither seen nor felt the development,” he said.
He advised APGA to face their governance business and stop naming APC.
“We urge APGA to focus on its campaign and leave APC alone.
“The harassment of the State House of Assembly members who left APGA for APC is a distraction for the party; Providing solutions to APGA’s internal problems should be paramount to APGA’s leadership, ” said Ejidike.
He also reminded APGA that there is freedom of association in a democracy.
He urged more House of Assembly members to leave APGA and join the ruling national party to bring the Southeast into mainstream national politics.
“Step into the path of your colleagues to join APC and return the lost glory of Anambra,” Ejidike appealed.
He also claimed that APGA was losing focus and that there were infrastructural deficits in roads, drinking water, electricity, health care, quality education, the advancement of women and young people and safety.
He also urged voters to avoid APGA in the November 6 gubernatorial election.
Ejidike assured voters that if elected, APC’s candidate Senator Andy Uba would change the state’s fate.
In response to the allegations, APGA State Chairman Chief Norbeth Obi said the party need not waste energy on the APC allegation and urged them to meet APGA in the November election.
Obi said APGA is focusing and consolidating its plans to ensure the big win on Nov. 6 and has no time to joke with APC.
In response, the Commissioner for Information and Public Education, Mr. C-Don Adinuba, disseminated the APC’s statements about the APGA-led government in the state.
Adinuba said the APGA government asked the EFCC to review its accounts for record-keeping purposes in March 2018 and issued it with a clean health certificate after the exercise.
“The APGA government is the only one that has ever invited the EFCC to review its accounts.
He added that the state has the lowest unemployment rate in Nigeria at 13.1 percent versus 27.1 percent nationally.
“Economists around the world consider the employment rate to be the most important indicator of government performance,” Adinuba said.
He added that the National Bureau of Statistics had also named Anambra’s economy as the best-run in Nigeria.
He said the government led by Governor Obiano was the only one in Nigeria that built an international airport and also an international convention center in 15 months, the best in Africa with a seating capacity of 12,000 people.
He said that next month, Anambra would deliver the newest international stadium, built with no credit from a bank.
Adinuba stressed that Governor Obiano’s APGA government did not fear a review of its financial records.
He advised APC to stock up on verifiable facts at all times before going to press.
Adinuba also called on APC to clean up the image of its flag bearer in the gubernatorial election, Senator Andy Uba, and to compare it with that of the APGA’s “world-class” candidate in the person of Prof. Charles Soludo.
