Anambra State Governor, Mr. Willie Obiano, has read the riot act to all members of his executive council, aides and civil servants, on all forms of corrupt acts.
The governor issued the warning at a meeting in Awka, the state capital, and warned that “any commissioner, special adviser or civil servant involved in any act of fraud or corruption in Anambra State will automatically be dismissed from the work force.”
“Equally, any government official found to be involved in any shady deal aimed at corrupt enrichment or diversion of public funds will be shown the way out of the Anambra State Government.”
According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Strategic Communications, Prince Oliver Okpala, titled, “A new order begins in Anambra State service,” Obiano warned that with his re- election for a second term governance would not be as usual.
He said that there must be a sense of commitment and seriousness in all public servants in the state who want to be part of the new revolution that will be introduced in the state to serve the people of the state better.
The governor disclosed that there would be checks and balance in every aspect of government business now and that all loopholes must be completely plugged to checkmate the activities of those who have in the past been sabotaging the efforts of the government to give qualitative service to the people of Anambra State.
