Governor Willie Obiano has revealed that former Governor, Peter Obi requested for the sum of 7.5 billion naira from his administration.
Governor Obiano who made the disclosure at Ezechima Primary School, Onitsha when he inaugurated his reelection campaigns in Onitsha North Council Area, said the clarification has become necessary because of the recent accusations against him by the former Governor.
Governor Obiano who noted that he had refused to pay the sum which his predecessor said was for his election campaigns in 2013, because he strongly believes that public funds should be used for public good, said that was why they fell apart.
He further revealed that he refused to pay the money because he was aware that enough money was raised for his campaign by his friends and associates, all of which were never accounted for.
On the varying sums which the former Governor claimed he left behind, Governor Obiano made it clear that he inherited liability of about 127 billion naira debt from him in contracts awarded and other responsibilities, which he has been religiously undertaken in the spirit of continuity.
He assured the people that he has his eyes on the ball and will not allow anything to distract him from fulfilling his promises to Ndi Anambra.
