Tony Okafor, Awka A governorship aspirant in Anambra State on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, Chief George Moghalu, has described security votes which are disbursed to state governors every month to be spent at their discretion as gloried stealing. Moghalu who expressed interest to contest this year’s governorship election in Anambra State said it was criminal for the beneciaries of such fund not to account for it. He said if elected governor of Anambra state he would make his security votes public, adding that any fund not accounted for consisted fraud. He said, “Why should I take the people’s money without accounting for it. It’s Criminal and fraudulent to do so”. He maintained that a state that was peaceful had no reason to apply for security votes.

He said the APC under him as governor would transform Anambra State the way nobody had done. He said, “I’m happy the APC is the most sought political party in Anambra State today. “President Buhari means well for the Igbo and the interest of the South East is better protected in an APC government. “I’m con⹐�dent that 2017 will be good for our nation; it will bring excitement to our people. “I’m running for the governorship of Anambra in my party, the APC.”
