Outgoing Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, has said he will relocate to the United State Of America when he vacates office in March 2022.
This is coming after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), disclosed Obiano has been placed on its watch list.
Reacting to the EFCC watch list statement, Anambra State Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Don Adinuba, accused EFCC of acting on a script.
The commissioner said the governor has made it public that he would relocate to his U.S. residence at the end of his tenure.
“Nigerians were dismayed that the EFCC went to a new low on Wednesday, November 24, 2021, when it sponsored media reports claiming that it had placed Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State on its watch list. The EFCC provided no details of how Governor Obiano has been placed on its watch list but made a reference to a letter it purportedly wrote on November 15, 2021, to the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) asking it to inform the anti-graft agency anytime the governor is travelling out of the country,” Adinuba stated.
