Report By Campaign For Democracy South-East Region Publicity Arm

The Campaign for Democracy (CD), South-East region has urged the Federal Government of Nigeria to invite the Economic and Finance Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate the shady deals going on at the various water projects supposedly executed by the Anambra State Government.

``Till today, none of the water schemes claimed to be executed by the present administration in Anambra State is serving the people to justify the multi-billion naira spent ,’’ CD said in a statement.

The statement, which was issued to news reporters in  Awka, Anambra State, was signed by Dede Uzor A. Uzor, Chairman, CD, South-East Region.

``EFCC should investigate the multi-billion water projects executed by the Gov. Peter Obi-led administration, most of them are performing below average", CD emphasized.

CD said that the water schemes to be investigated includes; Awka, Udoka Housing Estate, Nibo and Nimo water schemes.

Others, the statement said further are; Abagana , Awkuzu, Ifite Dunu and  Agulu water schemes.

The group also advised EFCC to wade into a plan to hand-over the World Bank assisted multi-million naira Onitsha Greater Water Scheme to a contractor named Paul-B, using a new corporate name BIRSA, to convert the water scheme to a personal property under the guise of the Private-Public Partnership (PPP) initiative without the real stakeholders being involved.
