APC Asks Ugwuanyi to Probe Alleged World Bank $50m Water Loan

By Christopher Isiguzo in Enugu
Enugu State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Sunday asked Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to convoke a high-powered panel of inquiry to unravel how a whopping $50 million World Bank loan allegedly obtained by the administration of Governor Sullivan Chime meant for provision of water in Enugu metropolis and other towns was spent.
The party asked the governor to ensure that all the monies “taken from Enugu Water Scheme” by previous administrations in the State were recovered, insisting that the proposed Town Hall meeting over the lingering water shortage in the statr should be shelved.
 In a statement by the Publicity Secretary, Mrs. Kate Ofor, the party said the panel of inquiry would achieve greater results than the town hall meeting.
“Governor Ugwuanyi should as a matter of urgent state importance, convoke a high powered panel of inquiry to unravel those who siphoned the monies voted to provide water to Enugu Metropolis and other towns and go ahead to recover the looted water funds. Town Hall Meeting is only a talk shop,” the Enugu APC spokesperson said.

Offor recalled that there were two or three tranches of funds voted to provide sufficient water in Enugu State in the last two decades including the money voted by Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) under Muhammadu Buhari and the 50 million dollars World Bank loan obtained by the immediate past administration of Governor Sullivan Chime.
