Alleged returned £4.2m not in our coffers yet – Delta Govt
The Delta State Government has said it had not received any 4.2 million pounds returned by the United Kingdom from the Federal Government.
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Delta State Governor, Olisa Ifejika said the state was not in contact with the Federal Government, especially the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation, on the issue.
It expressed appreciation for the disposition of the Federal Government in releasing the funds to the state and assured that it would acknowledge receipt of the funds when it arrives.
The government also assured the Federal Government and Deltans that the funds would, in tandem with Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s administration’s hallmark, be judiciously deployed especially in the completion of projects it had earlier intimated the Presidency about.
This is in reaction to the claims by the Accountant-General of the Federation, Mr Ahmed Idris on Tuesday before the House of Representatives Committee on Recovered Assets, in Abuja, that the funds had been released to the Delta State Government.
According to the Delta State Government, ” the money had not arrived in its coffers.”
