The claim by a group of people claiming to be from Egbema, in Ohaji/ Egbema Local Government Area,that N70b was released to the state government as accrued taxes from the oil producing status of the state, is totally false.
No such money was released to the state government.
This government runs an open and transparent process.
There is no way such a huge amount of N70b could be released to the state government as accrued taxes, secretly.
The truth is that the information is false. Those behind the press conference should desist from raising false alarm.
