Anambra state governor, Prof CC Soludo has said that his predecessor, Chief Willie Obiano, left only ₦300m him in cash and debts worth billions of Naira.
The governor who was just sworn in late week, make this revelation while answering a question on ArriseTV on Tuesday. In his words, GOv Soludo said;
“The audited account of Anambra State as at 31st December, 2021 is published, anybody can access it. You can get it, you see our assets, liabilities and so on. And then, of course, as at the last date. What you now have to do is between the audited account as of the end of the year and as at the day of handover.
You know if there were further liabilities and all of that. But, in terms of the audited account certified and published already, yea, everybody knows that the State’s finances are not quite robust to put it mildly.
The debt probably is in the range of hundred and something billion. In terms of debt. And then, cash, from what I saw in the end of it, a few hundred millions. Say 300 to 400 million Naira. That’s what the state has, I mean that’s the base. But we are still going to have the reconciliations and all the accounts from January to the date that we took over and would put it out there”…
