As Delta State indigenes continue to wallow in pains and poverty due to non circulation of funds by the government in power; the House of Assembly members led by the new Speaker, Sheriff Oborevwori have perfected plans to put the state in more debt.
Secret Reporters gathered exclusively that Sheriff and his co lawmakers will be travelling to the US on state funds for another round of jamboree training, which according to the source will not impact on the legislative process other than just going on holidays. A source also confided in us that the lawmakers will go there in their usual manner to waste estacodes on foreign women to service their insatiable libido.
The real purpose of the USA training is for the lawmakers to go and vacation but knowing that it will raise eyebrow among Deltans; Sheriff cunningly turned it to training, revealed a knowledgeable source.
According to our House of Assembly insider, the money for the trip which is over N400 million was quickly approved by the State Governor, Mr Ifeanyi Okowa when he approached them to approve the sum of N1 billion loan from Fidelity Bank to carry out laudable projects. The insider called it a “blackmail job by the principal officers towards approving the loan which the governor had no choice but to do”.
Three Directors from the House of Assembly have also been penciled down for the trip to USA which is scheduled for July or early August 2017. A lawmaker from the South district who spoke to us stated that he is not yet aware of the trip but stated that if the governor could carry his friends and relatives who have no business in government to China for a jamboree; then it is not wrong for lawmakers who are truly going for training to be sponsored.
The Speaker is currently under fire for using a staggering sum of N10 million to support kolanuts to some of the state traditional rulers in order to support his secret Senatorial ambition during a political outing.
Calls placed to the Speaker were not picked as at press time.
