Hon. Obinna Oriaku Ex-commissioner for Finance Abia state a frontline APC Governorship Aspirant lambasts Ntcheta Omerekpe for falsehood against Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state.

He set the records straight and advise Omerekpe not to distract the state with such lies to gain cheap popularity to attract political sympathy.

While I appreciate that this is enough distraction, especially for myself whose name was mentioned here. I have decided to respond and put an end to this unnecessary distraction

Naturally, as an opposition I should be standing aloof laughing as the party in power ridiculed themselves further.

However, as a Ngwaman, at the end of the day, they are laughing at us. While we prepare for the APC takeover of Abia. kindly note the following.

Necheta is wrong to have said he ” secured a loan of $300m for Abia state as no single individual can approach ADFB outside the State and ended up mentioning my name.

If any state is interested in foreign loans through any of the donor agencies. It must pass through the national assembly.

The national assembly captures these loans from various states as they are included in the national borrowing plan of the federation for the following year’s budget.

Abia just like other states went before the committee on appropriation, and local and foreign loans to present their request.

On that day Kaduna state, and state. Jigawa state and Enugu state are all presented.

This was handled either by the Commissioner of finance of any of these states or that of Economic planning.

The national assembly members from these states are allowed to support such requests by planning her presence.

In Abia State, Obinna Oriaku then Commissioner for finance presented Abia requested not any other person just like other states mentioned above No consultant did that for Abia state but then Hon. Commissioner Obinna Oriaku.

Barrister Bob Ogu and his team were there including Emeke Ononiwu the SA on foreign donors.

The only legislature from Abia state on that day that witnessed the presentation was Senator T.A Orji who was a member of one of the committees.

After the presentation which was wonderfully done, The house is expected to communicate their approval or disapproval to the Federal Ministry of finance, the Secretary of the Federation, GF, and DMO.

It was at this point we noticed the sabotage from some group who wanted to frustrate this project using the office of the Clark of the national assembly.

They deliberately changed the loan amount from 300m to 200m and from ADFB to RAMP.

It was at this point we started reaching out to our people with contact in the national assembly to help us stop those sabotaging the efforts of the government in securing the approval from the national assembly.

It is instructive to note that the process of this loan does not start and end in the National assembly.

No doubt Necheta came in handy in using his relationship with Clark to assist in stopping that deliberate effort on f that office in stopping the loan mystifying details of the loan.

It’s however not enough to say that he ” secured a loan ” for Abia State as an individual or as a consultant.

I can remember Ncheta was formally ea engaged to help stop the sabotage but he reached out to his contacts and the problem of falsification of details in the national assembly communication was stopped and we moved to the next stage.

It’s also instructive to note that the said loan is still being processed. It’s yet to be contested four years after which is also not good for us as a State.

I’m sure this puts an end to all the stories I wish to be left out of this while I focus on the new Abia which is said to be possible.
