Render Accounts Of LG Federal Allocations Under Your Watch, Soludo Told

By Adadareporters

The Ohanaeze Youth Council, Thursday, tasked the governor of Anambra State, Prof Charles Soludo, to render accounts of the three months’ federal allocations that accrued to local governments in the state since his assumption of office.

Igboayaka O. Igboayaka, the national president of the group, stated this in a release made available to Adadareporters in Abuja.

Igboayaka said the demand became necessary following a publication by a research consult, Crincad and Cari NIgeria Limited, alleging the embezzlement of N24.13 trillion local governmen funds across the federation.

Igboayaka also regretted that there have not been council elections in Anambra State since 2002, and called on Soludo to right the wrong.

He said, “Anambra State has not conducted local government elections since April 2002.

“Governor Soludo should hold a local government election as stipulated by the law section 7(1) Constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended in 1999.

“Ohanaeze Youth Council also implores Soludo to aide in recovering local government funds embezzled by previous governments of Anambra State which formed part of N24.13 trillion as reported by the same firm.

“It’s regrettable that Charles Soludo has become a core Nigeria politician, instead of an economist he claimed to be.

“His survival is more important to him than holding a local government election, as he has appointment his political cronies as transition committee leaders just for mere political compensation.”
