Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, has said that he will ensure that any corrupt official in his government goes to jail.
A Senior Special Assistant to the governor on media and strategic communication, Mr Oliver Okpala, on Wednesday in a statement in Awka, said that the governor made the statement during an executive council meeting.
He said any of his appointee found culpable of corruption or fraud would face the wrath of the law, adding that the era of “business as usual” was over.
Obiano said that he had taken drastic steps to ensure that corrupt officials in his administration are fished out.
He said, “Thorough checks and monitoring would be mounted on the activities of government officials in order to fish out the corrupt or fraudulent ones for immediate prosecution by ICPC and EFCC.
“With the new mandate given to me by the electorate to govern them for the next four years, I will ensure that the welfare of the masses is given top priority like never before.
“It will not be business as usual and therefore I call for change of attitude by workers in the state. I will work harder during my second term to justify the confidence overwhelmingly reposed in me by the people.
“I charge permanent secretaries in all ministries to live up to expectations or be shown the way out.
The governor therefore, said he would be embarking on regular visits to government offices to assess the level of commitment.
