Anambra describes EFCC moves against Gov Obiano as uncalled for
Don Adinuba–Anambra State Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment has described the move by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission–EFCC, to place Governor Willie Obiano on watch list as politically motivated.
The Commissioner stated that the EFCC is being used by politicians who lost the Anambra governorship election to Obiano’s party, APGA.
According to Adinuba, the EFCC has not served the governor any notice or invited him to answer for any corruption-related offences yet the anti-graft agency clandestinely announced that it has placed the out-going governor of the state on its watch list.
EFCC had early requested Immigration Service to place the governor of Anambra State on a watch list and inform it anytime he is travelling out of the country from any of the international airports and other points of entry and exit. Read here
Adinuba who said that Obiano is currently out of the country noted that he travelled through one of the country’s international airports.
Governor Willie Obiano did not disguise himself, but rather left the country with his identity fully disclosed at the necessary immigration point.
The EFCC knows full well that it is acting inelegantly in this instance, and so has tried as much as possible not to make an official public statement on the alleged placing of Chief Obiano on the watch list. It furtively gave a section of the media the news report it wrote based on ostensibly its letter to the NIS on November 15″. he added.
