Anambra State Governor-elect, Prof. Charles Soludo, on Saturday, stated that he will block all illegal revenue windows in the State, as soon as he becomes Governor of the State, on the morning of March 17, 2022, .
He spoke during an interaction with critical Stakeholders in the State, at Agulu, Anaocha Local Government Area.
His exact words: “We learnt that revenue windows are already being distributed. Are the revenue people here? Yes, I am aware you people are sharing windows.
“But, when you are sharing the windows, please be telling the people you are giving them that their contracts stop on March 16. Anyone you are giving a window to, tell them it will end on March 16. Yes, whoever you are giving, endeavour to tell them, because on the morning of March 17, I will sign an Executive Order cancelling all of them.
“There are people who are used to this revenue theft… that is what they do, that is what they thrive on, and they have made their whole living off the State.
“But they will be the first to tell the government to build roads, and blame the government for all the potholes on our roads, but the little that should accrue to the government, they collect it and put it in their pockets.
“It cannot work; we have to decide if we want this to continue. If the decision is that we should continue with such illegal practice, we will quietly dust ourselves off and join those who want to go on exile.
“But I am sure we want things to work. For the sake and benefits of our children and children’s children, every kobo of the State’s fund must go into State coffers, and be made to work for the people, and there is no question about it.”
