EFCC Challenges Court Order Allowing Chief Willie Obiano to Travel

It is crystal clearer that for  any state to grow, the kinds of roads they have will determine so many other factors that affect output in the state, for instance, farmers in different communities that have their farms in rural areas , will have to leave their urban distribution bases to get to their sources.

If the roads in the state are not good, it will lead to loss of produce, increased transportation fares, which inturn mean that the prices of such goods will be very inflated, once those factors are all considered, we agree that agriculture will also support the IGR of the state, so that shows the role of how good roads can aid food production in the state.

Another aspect apparently is the avoidance of accidents that lead to loss of lives and properties too, because motorists and road users are more exposed to harm if they use bad roads, on their daily movements in and across the states, good roads also help road users and car owners to not pay regular meetings with their mechanics as their cars will last longer and be more useful.

While we are talking about infrastructural development and good representation from the individuals who are elected into office , we also need to start being intentional about Neighbourhood watch and reporting elements in the society , who are alien to upholding peace and development as a characteristic of a Nigerian. We also ask for more clarity from government agencies who are in place to check the excesses of government officials , but who should also not be influenced by politics , as integrity and such associations is like water and oil, they should never mix.

It has been reported that the EFCC is  challenging an interim ex parte order which grants the  former governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, to travel to the USA to facilitate his medical appointment.  Furthermore it was gathered that the order was granted by  the Awka Division of the Federal High Court  which is presided by Justice Hyeladzira Nganjiwa, on the grounds of denial of fair hearing by the EFCC.

However in reaction to this, Wilson Uwujaren who is the EFCC spokesman  in a statement released April 9th, 2022 accused Obiano of attempting to arm-twist the anti-graft commission with the ex parte order. He further added that The anti graft body  has petitioned the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, requesting  Nganjiwa to recuse himself from the fundamental rights action due to the fact  that he is involved in the commission’s appeal at the Supreme Court in the corruption case which is H. A. Nganjiwa vs FRN.
