Kindly read below what Prof. Charles Soludo said on Friday in his speech on Anambra State: “Anambra Small Business Agency (ASBA) as well as the Anambra State Investment Promotion and Protection Agency (ANSIPPA) – which has attracted up to $5 billion private investment commitments to the state within two years.”
So Soludo will open his mount, in spite of his exposure, to echo the lies of Gov. Willie Obiano? It is either the paper was actually written for him by Obiano boys or he is under some influence.
How can Soludo say that Obiano attracted 5 billion dollars (not even Naira) to Anambra State? Has he lost the sense of monetary value? Does he know that we are talking of close to 3 trillion Naira? Where is the money in Anambra State?
Is the 5 billion dollars the combined farming investment of people like Cosharis that is not up to 20 million dollars?
Honestly, this has cast doubt on Soludo’s competence. Now, let Soludo read below, the Nigerian situation in terms of foreign direct investment.
Actual Foreign Direct Investments into NIGERIA:
2014 is $4.69bn
2015 is $3.06bn;
2016 is just two quarters totalling $1.56bn
And were we have a Governor claiming purely out of nothing that he attracted over 5 billion dollars to Anambra and Soludo, shockingly and surprising is echoing him.
Is Soludo not aware of 12 billion Paris Club money Obiano collected? Did he ask he him the whereabouts of that money?
Is Soludo not aware that Obiano has sold and eaten foreign monies Obi saved?
Is Soludo not aware that Obiano who inherited a debt-free Anambra is now owing over 60 billion Naira?
Is Soludo not aware that the companies Obi attracted and have started building their facilities in Anambra State-Neimeth pharmaceutical company and Distel pulled out sitting non-cooperation by Obiano?
Is Soludo not aware that all projects that would have expanded the state's economic base such as the malls at Awka and Nnewi, as well S hotels at Onitsha and Agulu have all been abandoned? Obiano, rather than complete Awka shopping mall is building a private shopping mall near Awka Wonder Land (opposite his wife’s filling station)
Is Soludo not aware that 80% of the roads Obiano inherited from Obi remain abandoned?
This is tragic!
