Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano
By Our Reporter
That the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), placed the outgoing governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, on its watchlist is no longer news, what is perhaps news is the real why the governor was placed on watchlist by the anti-graft commission.
NATIONAL WAVES gathered that the move was an indication that the agency may have been discreetly investigating the governor and possibly has intelligence that he plans to escape from the country after handing over power to his successor, Professor Charles Soludo, who is currently the governor-elect
The governor is expected to hand over to the governor-elect on March 16, 2022..
In a letter to the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) dated November 15, 2021 and sighted by NATIONAL WAVES on Wednesday, the anti-graft agency requested the NIS to also place the governor on its watchlist and inform it anytime he is travelling out of the country from any of the international airports and other points of entry and exit.
Although the EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, could not speak on the issue, gathered that the governor would have to answer questions on alleged fund mismanagement while in office.
