The Anambra State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, says the state will not accept a handover note from Governor Willie Obiano if it does not have details of the state’s debt profile and number of abandoned projects.
The party also charged Obiano to quickly begin to prepare his handover note as the state would never return the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the state.
The state publicity secretary of the party in the state, Mr Nnamdi Nwangwu, stated this in a press release made available to journalists on Wednesday.
Nwangwu noted that the APGA controlled government had failed woefully in all ramifications and as such should be preparing the handover to PDP, which, he said, was ready to give Anambra State quality, responsible and responsive government.
‘No amount of distractions will stop Anambra people from showing the fraudulent government of APGA the way out and hold them accountable for their actions.
‘We challenge the APGA Government to make public its handover notes, detailing all finished and ongoing projects as was done by Peter Obi at the inception of the present government.
‘Anambra State cannot afford to continue the rot and fraud going on, which APGA represents. We need to know the debt profile of the state too,’ Nwangwu said.
The PDP spokesperson insisted that APGA government in the state had touched everything good handed over to her with what he called leprous hands and relegated Anambra State from being the best in Nigeria to a laughing stock.
‘Anambra State had the best road network in Nigeria; all the towns and communities were effectively linked when the saddle of leadership was handed over to this APGA controlled government. Today, the roads are not maintained and new ones are not constructed.
‘Obiano was handed a zero debt profile with over N75billion savings in local banks and future generation savings in dollars in different banks.
‘All these have been wasted without any commensurate tangible developments on ground or savings anywhere. The APGA government is amassing debts in banks and financial institutions, yet no development is going on in any part of the state. Certainly, time has come for the people to say bye to bad rubbish, Nwangwu said.
