Tamper with Anambra infrastructure, go to jail – Soludo warns residents

Anambra State government has warned residents of the state to desist from making themselves available for useless propaganda that could land them in jail.

It warned that anybody found tampering or defacing or damaging any road infrastructure henceforth would be immediately arrested and prosecuted.

The warning contained in a statement issued by Commissioner for Information, Paul Nwosu followed trending video at Ochanja Roundabout Water Fountain in Onitsha showing a water vendor supplying water to the supposedly dry fountain.

Describing the video as mischievous and not well thought through orchestrated by

opposition politicians, Nwosu maintained that Government frowned at unwarranted tampering and possible vandalization of public utilities built with tax payers money. 

The statement reads in part, “The video of an obviously sponsored and amateurish drama at Ochanja Roundabout Water Fountain where a water vendor is pretending to supply water to the supposedly dry fountain is mischievous and not well thought through. 

“For lack of what to discredit and denounce the publicly acclaimed hard working Governor of Anambra State, opposition politicians have gone bazerk in orchestrating all manner of infantile images to drive none existent point.

“Unlike the ordinary tap which flows from the tank that could be depleted over time, a water fountain recycles its water continously and the one in question, installed barely a month ago

 couldn’t have evaporated into the air.

“Secondly, the Anambra State Ministry of Power and Water Resources have reticulated water within five kilometres radius of the neighbourhood and there is no way water supply to the Ochanja Roundabout Water Fountain could have been a challenge.

“Government frowns at the unwarranted tampering and possible vandalization of public utilities built with tax payers money. 

“Anybody found tampering or defacing or damaging the roundabout and fountain or any road infrastructure from now on will be immediately arrested and prosecuted.

“People should desist from making themselves available for a useless propaganda that could land them in jail. “This is the last warning.”
