Information squealed to our medium is that, the speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Igbuya has finally signed the Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission(DESOPADEC) budget after his palms was greased.
The delay in the signing of the budget was occasioned by Igbuya’s insistence that he must get his cut in the budget alongside other members in the house.
As at when the budget was presented to the speaker, he out rightly told members of DESOPADEC that N1.3billion be placed on the table before anything could be done on it, and the money must be included in the budget an unspecified.
A principal officer in the house confided in us that, the money is meant for them to execute projects for their constituencies, which is illegal and against the act setting up the commission.
Another reliable source confided in us that, Igbuya’s plan is to pocket the money as he has always done when money is sneaked into the house.
Calls placed to the Speaker’s mobile phone were unanswered.
