Mr Charles Aniagwu, Delta state commisioner for information, has vehemently denied allegations that Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State signed any law to grant governors new retirement benefits.
Speaking at a news conference in Asaba, Aniagwu addressed claims from detractors and opposition political candidates who have been spreading misinformation about the Okowa-led government.
In addition to the retirement benefits issue, Aniagwu also clarified rumors surrounding the state Liaison Office in Lagos, which some had alleged was sold.
He explained that the state government had engaged a developer to tap into the opportunities available and construct a 10-storey building, as approved by the Lagos Government, with the aim of generating more revenue for the state. The completed project will also serve as the new liaison office, which is currently being rented.
Aniagwu further challenged those making false claims to provide evidence of any new law being passed, including the date, location, and the individual who signed it.
He urged detractors to stop casting aspersions on the governor and instead pursue their grievances through legal channels, such as the court system.
