Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s administration has come under severe condemnation from the All Progressives Congress for financial recklessness and borrowing spree.
In a press release signed by the Director of Publicity, APC, Delta state, Dr Omene Odafe and made available to National Point, the APC accused the PDP-led administration of Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa of conniving with the Delta State House of Assembly to obtain a humongous loan of 12 billion naira in a most opaque manner and for highly questionable purposes of absolutely no relevance whatsoever to the good people of Delta State.
The APC noted that while it had been quite obvious to Deltans that the avarice and financial recklessness of Okowa and the PDP were without bounds, the recent suspicious transaction was particularly insulting given the current robust financial status of the state.
“If truth be told, Delta State is arguably the last state in Nigeria that needs to borrow or should be going for any loan”.
It added that it was clearly a case of share the money and hang the debt on the neck of the people.
“It was of course to be expected that the rubber-stamp and clueless House of Assembly would just go through the motions and approve any amount requested by Okowa and PDP”.
The APC warned that every dime misappropriated or unaccounted for would eventually be recovered and absolutely every Kobo stolen from the people of Delta State would be coughed out at the right time.
“Indeed, all those involved in the wanton looting of Delta State that has been going on in the name of governance will pay dearly for their crimes against the good people of this state”.
“Delta APC says a big and resounding capital “NO” to any more borrowing by an administration already awash with way too much money that keeps steadily disappearing into the pockets of a few while the generality of the people of the state continue to wallow in abject poverty in spite of the “prosperity for all Deltans” charade of the present administration”
