One of the first acts of Governor Willie Obiano was to transfer funds for MDGs projects and other international partners funds into his security account.
Obiano moved it from an average of 200m naira Ngige took and 250m naira Obi took to 1.2b naira and 250m naira for his wife. He has recently increased it to 1.5b naira.
The moment Obiano did this, the wonderful woman in charge of MDG and other agencies, Mrs. Vivian Nwandu resigned under the pretense of the desire to rest. She said she did not want her name to be associated with the mess. I assure Obiano and his fools that these people will tell their stories in the fullness of time.
Then, in his first 100 days in office, he approved 5 billion naira for the jamboree.
When Barr. Joe Martins Uzodike, a man that is not afraid of his own voice, openly commented how scandalous the amount is at EXCO meeting, he asked him to keep quiet as he is not the Governor. Few days after that, he sacked him.
Are you still surprised that Anambra ceased being beneficiary of international grants due to poor financial management and lack of accountability?
