N1.650BN RELEASED TO DESOPADEC - DTSG

The attention of the Delta State government has been drawn to another orchestrated rumour making the rounds that the state government released the sum of N500 million to the Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (DESOPADEC) to pay contractors as well as run its affairs.

The mischievous rumour,again,has exposed the writers as ignorant,and wicked persons whose stock in trade is to cause unnecessary disaffection aimed at destroying the peaceful atmosphere existing in the state.A statement issued by the Media Assistant to the state Commissioner for Information,Mr. Sam Ijeh,in Asaba on Monday,July 31, 2017, noted that in the month of July, 2017,the sum of one billion,six hundred and fifty million Naira was released to DESOPADEC.

The statement therefore urged Deltans not to be distracted but continue to support the government of Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa who is irrevocably committed to the overall development of the state.
