  8. This government collected a N1 billion agric loan from CBN and so far no farmer has been mobilized and as I speak the government has dipped deeply into that money for other purposes not related to agric. Workers are being owed over 4 months salaries, but the governor deemed it fit to give the ngwa people who paid him solidarity visit last week 2 million naira as a thank you present. I can only imagine what will be done with this money from the W.H.O.
