Delta Gov’t dismisses claim of alleged N850 billion loan by APC, says it’s a lie from pit of hell

The Delta State government has dismissed the claim of the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) that it allegedly obtained N850 billion loan, describing it as another lie from the pit of hell.

The state government challenged the main opposition party in the state to present the names of the commercial banks that loaned the state government the money and time the loan took place.

The statement government made this outburst in a statement released in Asaba, the capital of the state by the state Commissioner for Information, Charles Aniagwu.

The statement came as reaction to allegations sponsored by the main opposition party in the state that the state government obtained loan.

Aniagwu described the concessioning of Asaba Airport as one of the best decisions of the Okowa-led government.

It added that the airport is in better condition that before the concession.

“The uninformed APC would have wanted us to run the airport with state funds with no expertise.

“In line with global best practices, experts in the aviation field who are not in any way related to the Governor are running the airport and they also confirmed that they never met the governor throughout the negotiations.

“We, therefore, urge Deltans to ignore the calculated attempts by the APC to demonise our party even as we remain ever committed to ensure that our governorship candidate, Rt. Hon Sheriff Oborevwori and candidates of our party in the state House of Assembly emerge victorious in the March 11 Governorship and House of Assembly polls,” he stated.

The statement which was titled: ‘Delta APC’s desperation and penchant for unbridled propaganda’ revealed that the state government was “inundated by series of mendacious propaganda and barefaced lies churned out on daily basis by the opposition APC in Delta State.

“Recall that we did inform the general public about the agenda of the APC and its Governorship Candidate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege’s plots to engage in a campaign of calumny and massive deployment of propaganda attacks on the Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa-led administration even when the Governor is not in the ballot with him.

“As a government and as a political party, we have refrained from engaging in likewise manner because we believe that we are not just decent people but because we have enormous achievements in the state to campaign with.”
