Stop Diverting funds for DESOPADEC, APC chieftain tells Okowa

APC chieftain in Isoko North Local Government Area of Delta State, Mr. Efeturi Lawrence Diveramredje, has asked Delta State Governor Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, to stop the redirection of store implied for Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (DESOPADEC), taking note of that Deltans know that the Commission should get half of the 13% determination subsidizes that gather to the State from the Federation Account Allocation Commission (FAAC). Diveramredje made this exposure in a visit with writers, yesterday in Ozoro, Isoko North Local Government of the Delta State.

As per the APC chieftain, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, has been dismissing the oil delivering zone in Delta State by occupying over N50 billion of the cash that is because of DESOPADEC, taking note of that the Commission (DESOPADEC) was made to placate the perpetual tumults of oil creating ranges in Delta State. His words, "since Okowa progressed toward becoming Governor in 2015, DESOPADEC has been working like a 'confined creature'. Indeed, Okowa is working like a seeker that is set on slaughtering DESOPADEC.

"Representative Ifeanyi Okowa has kept on misusing the assets that are gathers to DESOPADEC, this is a mishandle of specialist; and the oil groups need to know who precisely is remaining against the improvement of their groups. "Okowa is abusing DESOPADEC law of 2015, which stipulates that the Commission has elite rights to half of 13% Oil Derivation Funds for the restoration and improvement of the oil-bearing regions in the State. "The DESOPADEC law states plainly how the Commission ought to consume these assets, without interruption or redirection.

The clarification by Governor Okowa that he utilizes some portion of the cash to settle previous obligations owed by the State is not upheld by the Law, subsequently it can be viewed as a criminal demonstration. "In June 2017, a noteworthy piece of N4.5 billion that should be gather to the organization was again misused. Okowa discharged just N1.65 billion to DESOPADEC, yet the greater part of the cash was for things he guided the Commission to do that had no connection with building up the groups. "Okowa has been misleadingly paying some of his political cohorts countless Naira month to month since 2015 from the DESOPADEC portion under the appearance of subsidizing conduits security, while we concur that security is vital, we envision that the majority of the cash goes into private pockets.

"It is consequently an apparent that the justification behind the setting up of DESOPADEC has been consigned, and the office has turned out to be one that only pays laborers compensations for no work done" he included.
