The last may not have been heard of the occurrences that led to the death of Anwanabasi Enang, the woman who went to Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, to attend a promotional interview, and died on her way back to Eket, where she resides.
Multiple sources have reached out to Trail Reporters, to vent their anger on the state Governor, Udom Emmanuel, on his high handedness in handling various ministries, since he took over power in 2015.
We reliably gathered that, the Governor had stopped all subventions, which ministries have been collecting to run the ministries. Findings show that, he only pays staff salaries and gave each ministry a target to generate funds for themselves and remit some amount to the state coffers, through the single account which was opened at Zenith Bank for the state.
Investigation reveals that, the ministry of transport which Orman Esin heads as the Commissioner, was given N100 Billion annually as target, which is to be paid to the state government.
The ministry of transport was also given a target of N5 Million for sales of keke operators’ tickets, which must be paid to the government on monthly basis and another 1.5 million Naira to be generated, which goes to the purse of the ministry for running cost.
Findings show that, in the allocation of 1.5 million naira, the house of Assembly also gets their percentage from the said sum.
With these targets handed Orman Esin, he set out on his mission and commissioned touts to manhandle Akwa Ibomites, with the mandate to apprehend any vehicle at all cost, even if it was to kill the driver.
One of our sources who spoke with Trail reporters said, what happened yesterday, where the woman was killed, was what Orman Esin told them to do, in line with Udom’s 100 billion Naira target. “Whenever Udom sees Orman Esin, he will ask him, “Orman where is my N100 Billion? Orman where is my 100 Billion?”
All the commissioners are on target, they have been told to meet the target or resign, a source informed our medium.
Efforts to speak with the Commissioner of Transport, Orman Esin were not successful, as calls placed to his phone were unanswered.
