Imo Explosion: Chyma Anthony Slams FG, Says N4 Trillion Subsidy Fraudulent –

  • Barr. Chyma Anthony has attacked the federal government over the recent explosion at an illegal refinery in Imo state Government is not proactive, it is reactive
  • The politician added that Nigeria over the past seven years heavily burdened by poverty, hunger and crime

FCT, Abuja – Senator candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA ) for the Imo East Senate District in the 2023 election Mr. Chyma Anthony has attacked the federal government over the loss of life in the recent explosion at the site of an illegal refinery in the state.

The blast occurred in Abaezi community in Ohaji Egbema local government area in Imo state and killed over 100 people.

Anthony, while addressing journalists on Saturday, April spoke 29 in Abuja said the federal government was alone v responsible for the insanity of poor Nigerians to survive by any means necessary, including involvement in illegal refinery business in the Niger Delta and other oil-producing countries.

He claimed that the annual issuance of N4 trillion naira for fuel subsidies by the federal government is fraudulent and a trigger for mass poverty.

His words:

“That the federal government spends 4 trillion euros on subsidies alone spends is fraudulent and unaccountable.

“I urge the federal government to put in place a real system, a system that takes care of people economically and others.

“If our Refineries are not working, they can be revived or sold out so that they can be managed. A situation where the National Assembly approves N4 trillion in fuel subsidies is disheartening and the worst economic crime ever.”

He added that the Nigerian government provides jobs for the people that it would not have been necessary to engage in illegal refineries and that the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) should have uncovered such illegal activities beforehand.

Anthony pointed out that while he was sympathetic to the families of the dead, the federal government needed to be deliberate rather than reactionary.

He also urged the federal government to work with the Imo government to build modular refineries in the state so that many Imolites can be employed.
