Okowa denies alleged missing N48.6bn DESOPADEC funds

Okowa denies alleged missing N48.6bn DESOPADEC funds

The Delta State Government un­der the admin­istration of Dr Ifeanyi Okowa has denied knowledge of any miss­ing N48.6 billion funds allegedly belonging to the Delta State Oil Pro­ducing Areas Devel­opment Commission, DESOPADEC.
The All Progressives Congress (APC), Delta State chapter had in some national dailies (not The AUTHOR­ITY) accused the State government of divert­ing N48.6 billion funds allegedly meant for DESOPADEC.
But in a swift reac­tion, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Okowa, Charles An­iedu who spoke to The AUTHORITY through the telephone said the accusation was a fig­ment of the imagi­nation of the writer, stressing that the state government has no knowledge of such money.
Aniedu who denied ever speaking to any­body concerning the matter noted that the APC cannot divert Governor Okowa’s at­tention from carrying on with his develop­ment agenda for the state which is clearly spelt out in his SMART agenda.
He said: “We will not be distracted, we have our agenda that we have clearly spelt out in the SMART agenda and our mantra, Pros­perity for All Deltans. We will not lose focus on account of people who do not have jobs to do.
“We have a job to do and we are very much aware that they do not have a job to do, so the only thing they do is to sit down and manu­facture such malicious publications.
