The newly sworn-in governor of Anambra State Prof. Chukwuma Soludo has raised an alarm over the level of indebtedness the immediate Past governor Willie OBIANO left the state.
The former CBN governor while answering questions from a presenter on Arise Television this morning made this known stating that despite an almost empty Treasury and huge debt left behind by his immediate predecessor, his government will try all they could to raise funds to fulfill their campaign promises.
“In terms of debt I inherited, it runs into hundreds of billions of Naira. In terms of cash, we met about 300 million Naira only. Let’s not talk about it. Our treasury is funny. But I hope we shall make money henceforth to help us fulfill our promises for infrastructure and development of the state. But in terms of what I met in our coffers, my brother, it’s pathetic. Please let us not go there. God will help us”
