Sokoto APC condemns Tambuwal’s demand for 28.7 billion naira loan
The Sokoto State All Progressive Congress (APC) has accused the state governor and his political party of maladministration in the performance of his constitutional duties.
The party also disapproved of the quest of Governor Aminu Tambuwal’s administration to receive a new loan amounting to N28.7 billion.
The chairman of the party, the Hon. Isa Sadiq Acida, speaking to reporters in Sokoto on Sunday, described the governor’s decision as an act of “wickedness” aimed at imposing inexplicable debts on unborn generations.
“We at the APC are seriously disbursed by the recent revelation that the Sokoto state government is going to receive another huge loan of 28.7 billion naira.
“With this development, Sokoto State is poised to become the second most indebted state in Nigeria, just behind Lagos.
“We are disburdened by the fact that a state like Sokoto, with a weak economy, becomes even more impoverished with loans that are wasted on unprofitable businesses,” Acida said.
Acida also raised the party’s concern over what he described as a deliberate removal of some people from the payroll of local government councils in the state.
According to Acida, “These deliberate suppressions, otherwise known as omissions, have become another political weapon in the hands of the PDP administration in Sokoto State.
“We want to categorically call on the state government to put an end to this political vendetta. If the government does not call its officials to order, the APC will not hesitate to roll-call victims and their relevant data, for appropriate action.
The party said it praised the people of the state for their endurance, adding that “any well-meaning state citizen should be seriously disbursed with the manner and manner in which the PDP-led administration has handled the affairs of our state “.
He further accused the party of being unable to differentiate politics from administration, stressing that the PDP-led administration in the state is a complete failure.
The press release says the few capital projects are designed more as a showcase to impress visitors.
He said the quality of the projects cannot stand the test of time because “a number of them have already started to collapse, especially the new two-lane track near the Federal College of Sciences, Sokoto “.
