governors of the southeast take a loan for FG projects

Uche Oga, Minister of State for the Development of Mines and Steel, on Wednesday accused the governors of the People’s Democratic Party in the southeast of the country for allegedly taking out a loan for projects undertaken by the federal government, led by the All-Progressive Congress.

He said that in most states, governors portray such federal government intervention as coming from their political party.

Oga made the statements in response to questions from State Chamber correspondents at the presidential villa, Abuja, following a weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council, where he briefed mayor’s office members of a meeting he had with local stakeholders following the protests. by #EndSARS.

The minister said: “If you look, you will find out that the entire southeast is ruled by the NDP.

“Most of the interventions of the federal government are not brought to the attention of the people, they are trying to appropriate these interventions; this is what you need to understand.
“But we tried to make them understand as much as possible that this is what the federal government is doing.

“In most states, you see governors turning most of these interventions into interventions by their parties, rather than interventions by the federal government. “
Contrary to the minister’s claims that the entire Southeast is controlled by the PDP, APC is in power in the states of Imo and Ebony, while the All Progressives Grand Alliance is in office in Anambra.

The minister also substantiated reports of a large number of military and police officers in the southeastern geopolitical zone, saying that this development has attracted investment.

According to him, the security forces were deployed at the invitation of the regional leaders.
Ogah also criticized allegations that security officers extorted money from people.
He said they were only busy “stopping and searching.”
