The All Progressives Congress, APC, has expressed fear that there are tendencies for the Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa-led government to re-loot the recovered £4.2 million James Ibori loot from the United Kingdom, UK,
The party pointed out that “greed still exists” in Delta State among government Officials.
The Spokesman of the Delta State Chapter of the APC, Sylvester Imonina, made the allegation in Asaba, the State capital, calling on the government to tie the funds to very specific projects which can be checked by the citizens of the State.
Imonina said: “Compared to some States in Nigeria of today, which receive less amount of monies from the Federation Account, there is no gainsaying the fact that the spirit of rapacity still exists in some government Officials in Delta.
“For the sake of our dear State, we call on the State Governor, Sen. Ifeanyi Okowa, not to allow this economic lifeline (monies) to go the way of the past. The people of the State want to see positive changes in their lives.
“As a matter of fact, we urge the Governor to tie this money to specific projects in the State. This will in no small measure bring joy to the people whenever they see the projects this money is used for.
“To allay this fear, PDP-led government should be patriotic in its acts of governance. The APC noted that in view of the happenings in the State, the yearnings of people should not be brushed aside.
“On the other hand, the party calls on all citizens to be at alert and ask questions with follow-up actions on how what belongs to the State is expended by the Okowa led-government.”
