Group Backs Okowa’s Handling Of 13% Derivation Funds

……..the 13 per cent derivation funds allocated to the state during his time in office.

By Edisemi Ayabotu:

The Delta Political Movement (DPM), yesterday, expressed its full support for Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, a former governor of Delta State, highlighting his effective utilization of the 13 per cent derivation funds allocated to the state during his time in office.

Hon Phillip Otobo, the National Chairman of DPM, informed the media that the former governor also prioritized the timely remittance of funds owed to the Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (DESOPADEC).

“The allegations of misappropriation of 50 per cent that accrued to DESOPADEC from the 13 per cent derivation fund are all campaigns of calumny and malicious aspersion. 

” We deduce the fabricated campaign as propaganda to puzzle, bewilder and incite the reading public against Dr. Okowa by naysayers. 

“These allegations are falsified and cooked-up stories by the protesters to delude the common people thereby using them as camouflage in fighting the immediate past governor.

“The protesters and those who signed the petition of alleged misappropriation of the funds as are mudslingers and usurpers with the sole aim of extortion,  and blackmail. 

“DPM affirms that the funds allocated  for the development of the oil and gas-bearing communities were judiciously used by Okowa, as his administration was fair in the distribution of projects across the three senatorial districts of the state.”
