“The situation we find ourselves calls for drive, innovation, prudence and above all, ingenuity and resourcefulness in managing our assets and in our internal revenue generation process, because, we are confronted with serious economic challenges and it is incumbent on us all, especially, the political appointees, to rise up to the challenge with courage, determination and selfless service.”
The above statement was made by Delta Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa during the swearing in ceremony of his commissioners in which David Edevbie the Commissioner of Finance was among, Okowa’s statement no doubt showed that he sees in Edevbie as the financial manager who will bring solution to the statement he made.
However, information available to this medium indicates that that the way things are going on at the Government House shows that Edevbie may have lost out in the running of the financial affairs of the State.
Universalreporters247.com gathered from a source close to the Commissioner of Finance that it is alleged that Edevbie may have been rendered useless owing to the fact that files no longer come to his table.
According to the source who spoke to this medium said; as I speak with you now, Governor Okowa and his kinsmen from Ika have made the Commissioner of Finance’s job a waste of time.”
“The files no longer come to his table, as it is alleged that Governor Okowa has mandated his Ika kinsmen especially Kingsley Emu the Economic Planning Commissioner, to do all the jobs Edevbie is supposed to do,” the source said.
The source told this medium that; “the Commissioner of Finance is alleged to be planning to resign and packed out of his accommodation in Asaba because Okowa and his kinsmen no longer regard him for any job scope.”
Universalreporters247.com findings indicates that Edevbie job has now been reduced to collection of salaries without attending to files the reason being that the Governor and his people don’t want him to know how money is being siphoned by them.
