Out-going Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan has said the disappearance of the Accountant-General of Delta State, Mr Cyril Agbele, six days to hand over to the new administration was in bad faith.
The Governor who stated thisThursday in Asaba expressed surprise that after a fruitful discussion on arrangements for the inauguration of the new administration including security and entertainment, the Accountant-General made himself incommunicado.
According to him, “the Accountant General has disappeared in the last five – six days. The truth is that on Thursday we met and I told him we have some payments to make in the areas of the swearing-in ceremony coming up tomorrow (today), he did not object, he did not say no and on Sunday, I was calling him but he was not picking my calls.”
“And of course on Monday his phones have been put off and on Tuesday, he sent in a paper that he was sick. By Wednesday, he sent in a memo and I find this act very inconsistent and irresponsible,” he stated.
“If there is something that I am doing that is not right, he should be free to tell me it is not right rather than disappearing … just imagine running the affairs of the state for a week without funds, even security men has started withdrawing from their posts across the state.”
“You know the security implication of this, particularly when peace and security is a key agenda of my administration and I cannot compromise on it. It is a conspiracy to grind my administration to a halt and an attempt to set me up on a collision course with the incoming administration. I think is very irresponsible.”
