Former vice chairmen of the local government areas in Anambra state have called on Governor Willie Obiano to stop paying them what they described as illegal salaries as their tenure ended in July.

Vanguard reports that the 20 former vice chairmen said N40,000 is being paid into their account monthly and that they don’t know what the payment is for considering their tenure had ended.They said they would not want to get into problem with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in the future and called on the governor to pay them their severance package amounting to N10.78 million for each person.

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.”

They said their main concern was how they would be paid their furniture allowance, entertainment allowance, accommodation allowance, constituency allowance, domestic allowance, severance gratuity, utility allowance, personal staff, among others, totaling N10.78 million.
