…..They Were Shared Accordingly -T.C Boss
Information reaching us indicates that while other Interim Management Committee Chairman in other local government areas across the state were busy sharing the relief materials to the vulnerable citizens and residents, the Isiala Mbano counterpart, Mr. Chika Okoroike is sharing to the leaders of All Progressives Congress in the area.
The State governor His Excellency Senator Hope Uzodinma has recently distributed the COVID-19 relief materials to the Interim Management Committee Chairmen of the 27 Imo LGAs for onward distribution to the 305 INEC wards and communities in Imo State as palliatives to cushion the effects of stay at home as he ordered them to prevent the spread of the global pandemic, Coronavirus.
The food materials included bags of Rice, Vegetable Oil, Tubers of Yam, Cartons of Tin Tomatoes, Cartons of Indomies, Cartons of Bottled Water, Soft Drinks, etc even as the state government earlier distributed hand sanitizers to Imo communities.
The investigation further revealed that instead of the LG boss to follow the laid down modalities, he used the relief materials to settle some political leaders. We reliably gathered that among the leaders that got the relief material was the APC Organizing Secretary, Mr. Linus Iroha, among others.
In the same vein, the taskforce Committee on COVID-19 in Isiala Mbano LGA under the chairmanship of Prof. Chinedu Osuji with some of his members carried away the relief materials to their family members. The palliative materials made for the vulnerable citizens of the area.
Meanwhile, the Isiala Mbano IMC chairman has denied sharing the said materials amongst the leaders.
Speaking to lead, the chairman revealed that the materials were shared as directed by the state government.
