Core Loyalist to former Governor of Bayelsa now Senator Henry Seriake Dickson, Comr. Idumange has Blasted Gov. Douye Diri lead Miracle administration, said it’s too early to “defraud Bayelsans”

The Chieftain of the People Democratic Party (PDP) and core loyalist to former Governor Seriake Dickson, Dr. John Idumange has said the N3 Billion CBN agric loan earlier obtained by Governor Douye Diri is a fraud. He said the loan has been diverted to private pockets of individuals instead of Bayelsans

Sometime in 2019, the immediate past administration applied to the Central Bank of Nigeria for a N3 billion Agricultural loan. The Governor Douye Diri administration received the loan. The first tranche of N1.5 billion was paid in March, 2020 to the Prosperity administration. The money was squandered.”

“The last tranche of the loan N1. 5 billion has been paid in February, 2021 via Access Bank Plc. A paltry sum of money is what the administration is using to clear some hectares of land. I am sure the Commissioner of Agriculture was not aware.”

Plans have been concluded by the Government to give fifty thousand Naira (N50, 000) to selected farmers in Bayelsa State. It is too early for the Prosperity administration to defraud Bayelsans then shift the blame to the immediate past administration. So far, we have documented 17 cases of fraud. When we get 25 clear cases of fraud, EFCC and the law courts will handle the matter.”

“Bayelsans should not be dupped in the interest of a tiny cabal of power holders. Let me warn that anyone who challenges me on the Agric loan issue will appear in Court in 14 days. All documents of payment of the Agric loan are at my disposal. This is a warning shot”
