BREAKING: Tony Nwoye Drag To Court Over Diversion Of Fund Meant For Constituency Project

Report reaching us has it that the candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the forthcoming Governorship election in Anambra State Hon. Tony Nwoye is yet enmeshed in a corruption scandal. 

It was reported that the people of Umueze-Anam Wards 1 and 2 of Anambra West Local Government Area are deeply aggrieved that Tony Nwoye diverted funds meant to construct solar powered borehole in their town.

According to them, the money for the construction of the boreholes was captured in the 2016 budget and funds appropriated for it as part of constituency project for the area.

However, in an inexplicable turn of events, Hon. Tony Nwoye acting in concert with some unscrupulous elements at Abuja diverted the funds.

This is why the persons affected took out a suit at the Federal High Court Awka in Suit No. FHC/AWK/CS/46/2017 Between Ogbuefi P.O. Okonkwo & 4 Ors Vs. Hon. Tony Nwoye & 5 Ors the parties concerned are seeking that the money meant for the water project be returned for the execution of the job. One of the Plaintiffs told our reporter that since the suit was filed in March.

Hon. Tony Nwoye has avoided the Court and has not filed any response so far despite being served with the processes. He said that they will also have to petition the EFCC to carry out investigation into the matter.

The presiding Judge at Federal High Court Awka has adjourned the case to the 12th day of October, 2017 for hearing.

NB: All effort made to contact Hon. Tony Nwoye, to either confirm or debunk the story proves abortive.

This story was first publish by Abuchi Okoli, a reporter with Todays Issue Magazine based in Awka.
