Governor of Anambra State, Professor Charles Soludo has said that the immediate past Governor of the state, Willie Obiano, left debt of billions of Naira for the state.
Soludo who was newly sworn in as the Governor of the state explained this while featuring on a TV station on Tuesday.
Soludo claimed that Obiano left a paltry sum of between N300 and N400 million in the state coffers, while he left a whopping debt running to hundreds of billions of naira.
The governor further expressed worry concerning this ugly development, saying “the state finance is in bad shape”, and in dire need of restoration.
Following this statement of Soludo, Ndi Anambra have taken to social media to berate the former governor, who is currently in the EFCC detention, over allegations bordering on fraud and financial impropriety, during his tenure as governor of Anambra state.
Earlier on, OSUN DEFENDER had reported that the anti-graft agency arrested Obiano on the night of Thursday, March 17, at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos, few hours after he handed over.
However, former governor Obiano was later granted bail after spending five days in the EFCC’s detention, although he has not yet perfected his bail conditions as at the tile of filing this report.
