I received the report below.
I note that it has not been denied by the Anambra governor or any of his officials.
Our governor’s daughter graduates from USA, and Governor Willy Obiano is sponsoring 179 Anambra government officials to USA for the daughter’s graduation
I read it first from Mazi Odera and decided to investigate.
Indeed, the Governor of Anambra State, sponsored 179 Anambra people and many others that are not from Anambra State to Houston, USA for the graduation of his daughter, coming up on Thursday, the 18th of May.
Investigations revealed that he is also taking this opportunity to park into his new, bigger house in Sugar Land, Houston, Texas, USA.
Out of the 179 people from Anambra state, 10 are members of the House of Assembly, 21 are traditional rulers; 15 are Men President General, 8 are women President-Generals.
9 Commissioners/Special Advisers and other aides, 3 Permanent Secretaries, many for special friends of the Government.
Governor Obiano paid for 10 days hotel accommodation in two Houston Hotels for they divided the people that went into two categories.
The Hotels are:
1. Crowne Plaza Houston – Near Sugar Land, 9090 Southwest Freeway.
2. Holiday Inn Express Houston- 1810 Bell Street.
The logistics for the payment were handled by one Mr. Cy Agupugo and Mr. Primus Odili, both aides to Willie leave in the USA.
Governor Obiano traveled last week and will be in the USA for two weeks.
He justified the two weeks by saying that it is not easy to have a medical graduate child in the USA
These officials paid 10 days in the hotel for all of them, running from 10th to 20th of April. One group received 8000 Dollars flat as estacode; while the second group received 5000 dollars flat.
They did it based on those that already have valid visas.
They used Delta Air and booked in block (Equivalent to charter) at 2.5 Million Naira for Business class and 645,000 for Economy. They said their plane does not have first class.
Leaders of the delegation: Sir Victor Oye and the Speaker, Hon. Rita Mmaduagwu.
People like Ogirishi Igbo ( Rojenny), who is the eye of APGA in Anambra State was excluded because he does not have visa. While discussing with friends, Obiano said it was good he did not have visa because people will mistake him for dibia in the USA. ” it is better we keep using him for what he is: a local champion.
