The former member Abia State Scholarship Board Lawrence Charles Nwangwa has identified palm fruit which is produced in large quantum in his Obingwa local government area of Abia as their own Federation Account Allocation Committee (FAAC) and Joint Account Committee (JAC).
In a short video released by the prominent businessman, he said the proceeds of the palm fruit will be channeled to community development services, adding that it a major source of income for his people through which their forefathers were able to raise them to prominence.
In a text attached to the video, the recently resigned Board member Abia Scholarship Board described himself as a village man, adding that he has assured his people that their votes won’t come cheap in 2019.
“BACK TO MY ROOTS: without pretence I am a village man and a timid one at that. My people work with me and I work for them. Today we are harvesting the riped communal Palms trees for community development. That’s our own FAAC or JAC.
“We used this method to train some of our educated elders who only came back to build high walls between them and us.
“POLITICALLY I have assured them their votes won’t come cheap this time no matter whatever primordial sentiment and they have pledged to follow the illumination of my TORCH. Nde whe unu kota nu sign l’oge” he wrote.
Mr. Nwangwa joined the long list of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, Abia governor’s appointees who have in the past one month resigned their appointments.
