Your over-bloated appointments hampers infrastructural devt-APC tells Okowa

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in has berrated Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for his statement to cut down the number of capital projects in the State.

The state APC in a statement signed by its publicity secretary, Bar Sylvester Imonina said  that the excuse given on non-availability of funds to the Government of , purportedly caused  by Coronavirus (covid-19), is bogus and unacceptable to the people.

The statement reads in part:  “It is a popular fact that in recent months, the Governor appointed thousands of political aides, largely on political patronage. Painfully, majority of the appointed Special Advisers, Special Assistants and/ or political aides do not add value to the social and economic development of the state.

“Information available to APC and the general public is that the internally generated revenue of Delta state on a monthly basis is in the neighborhood of N13 billion. On the other hand, the unaccounted/unremitted monies collected by friends and cronies of the state Government as political settlement, from business owners in Delta state are in billions of Naira!”

He  challenged Okowa to cut down his cost of governance, foisted on Deltans through redundant  political aides.
