The executive governor of Anambra State, Professor Chuwkuma Soludo, has revealed that his predecessor, Chief Willie Obiano left the paltry sum of 300 million naira in the state account when he left office last week.
The former CBN governor made the shocking revelation during an interview with Arise Television
He said, “In terms of debt I inherited, it runs into hundreds of billions of Naira. In that of cash, we met about 300 million Naira. In fact let’s not talk about it. Our treasury is funny. But I hope we shall make money henceforth to help us fulfill our promises for infrastructure and development of the state. But in terms of what I met in our coffers, my brother, it’s pathetic. Please let us not go there. God will help us”.
Chief Willie Obiano who is still under the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission was arrested last week at Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos when he was trying to flee to Houston Texas, United States few hours after handing over power to Prof Chuwkuma Soludo.
He is under investigation for alleged misappropriation of 42 billion naira.
