There has been claim by Hon. Chinedu Obidigwe that he left roads, Dr Tony Nwoye put as his 2019 ZIP projects for Dr Tony Nwoye. That the roads Dr Tony Nwoye facilitated and executed up till the roads completed in 2022 were what Hon Obidigwe left for Tony to implement from Dr Tony’s 2019 ZIP/ CONSTITUENCY PROJECTS in Nsugbe.
It is very unfortunate that Hon. Chinedu Obidigwe would come this low. It is evidently clear before the good People of Anambra East and West Federal Constituency that the said Lawmaker is been economical with the truth for the good People of Anambra East and West Federal Constituency as it concerns Zonal Intervention Projects for the Federal Constituency.
Ordinarily I wouldn’t have joined issues with him or his Media team. But for the sake of the general public who know the truth and those who may wish to know more. Let me set the records straight. It is on record for the eight Years of Governor Obiano tenure as Governor of Anambra State, Governor Obiano and APGA government did not construct or build any infrastructure or road in Nsugbe town. Even Hon Obidigwe didnot attract or site any project in Nsugbe as a Lawmaker representing the Federal Constituency. It has been almost four years of wasted time in The National Assembly.
Now to the contentious issues about road projects in Nsugbe, which Hon Chinedu Obidigwe claimed he allowed Dr Tony Nwoye to implement, otherwise he (Hon Chinedu Obidigwe) would have stopped /halted/ changed the projects. This is PURE FALSEHOOD BY HON CHINEDU OBIDIGWE.
Below are the breakdown of 2019 Zonal Intervention Projects as sponsored by Dr Tony Nwoye. You have items
(1)FG awarded 50%-60% of amount in the list. Item No 1c and 1d were awarded by UBEC/FG, but we have it to the Priests/Proprietors of the school to execute. Item No 1c and 1d were awarded, but were not executed/nor paid for. No kobo was paid by FG till date for the executed items 1a and 1b.
But because this projects were dear to our people, Dr Tony Nwoye gave out personal money to the school through Catholic Priest(Fr) of St Joseph, Abata Nsugbe for item 1a and also to the Anglican Priest at Bishop Anthony Nwoka Anglican School Nsugbe for Item no 1b for them to execute the project for their schools. These Priests/properitors are still alive and the projects put into use in the two schools. Uptill today, Dr Tony Nwoye has not collected from Federal Govt/UBEC,the personal money he gave to the Priests in which they used to do the rehabilitation. Hence, FG has not paid/ released a kobo to the Companies that those projects were awarded to for the entire 1a,1b,1c &1d till date as contained in this paper. It is verifiable.
From the Paper as released by the National Assembly for 2019 intervention programmes, Federal Government AWARDED ONLY BOREHOLES AT (2a) lnnoma (2b) lkem Nando and (2c) Ezi Anam at about #8m each.
My dear Good People OF ANAMBRA EAST/ WEST, These were 2019 Constituency Projects/ZIP OF DR TONY Nwoye PASSED INTO LAW IN DEC 2018. Let Hon Obidigwe show us any road in this Hon Tony Nwoye’s 2019 ZIPs passed into Law in Dec 2018.
