The burning issue of a fresh loan the present administration is trying to take, ostensibly to be used for their PDP campaigns and forthcoming elections.
The Bayelsa state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has accused the Governor, Seriake Dickson of planning to divert N45billion.
Vanguard Newspapers reports that the APC Director of Publicity for the Sylva/Igiri Campaign Organisation, Chief Nathan Egba said “The burning issue of a fresh loan the present administration is trying to take, ostensibly to be used for their PDP campaigns and forthcoming elections. The initial information we had, was the N2.5billion naira and the N10billion the PDP government was trying to structure through the State House of Assembly. But as you are all aware, the government has admitted they are in fact targeting about N45billion naira instead.
“Their claim is that this is an already approved loan, but what they did not tell Bayelsa people and indeed, the whole world, is that they have tampered with the original terms of the contract on the Airport project to pave way for them to draw on the loan. They have committed Bayelsa to this whooping amount of N45billion naira for the Airport project, on the condition that the contractor will draw on the presentation of milestone certificate.”
