The spokespersons for the former vice chairmen who are Hon Chuks Obiweluozor for Anambra Central, Hon Michael Anedu for Anambra South and Hon Chris Arinze for Anambra North said they decided to speak out so as not have problems in the future.

They said:: “We left office since July, 2016 and as such, see it as an illegality to draw salaries from the state government. It may interest you to know that up till now, the local government joint account allocation committee office still pays us salaries to the tune of N40,000 per month.

“May we sound it loud and clear that we do not need to be part of this illegality. Therefore, we call on those concerned to stop this illegality forthwith. If there should be any payment, then let the payment be correctly tagged.”
