There Is No Crisis In Anambra Revenue House — Madubuko
… Takes Osita Obi To Cleaners
BY RAYMOND OZOJI, Awka
The Executive Director in charge of Operations in the Anambra State Internal Revenue Service (AIRS) Dr. Christian Madubuko has debunked in totality the allegations being peddled by one Osita Obi that the Revenue House has been submerged with supremacy tussle.
It would be recalled that the said Osita Obi had claimed in some sections of the media that Governor Charles Chukwuma Soludo made a fatal mistake by creating Executive Directors in the State Board of Internal Revenue that are not answerable to the Chairman.
Osita Obi claimed that the creation of Executive Directors plunged the Revenue House into an unending crisis such that the Executive Directors now take unilateral decisions thereby reducing the Chairman to a mere figure head.
But Madubuko in an exclusive interview with this reporter, said no such thing ever existed in the Revenue House. That the place is in order and all Executive Directors reported directly to the Chairman of the Board.
Madubuko who described Osita Obi as a rumour monger, said he is taking him to the cleaners because his rumours sting like the stench from public latrine.
Madubuko said it is a very callous and stupid insinuation by Osita Obi because according to him, the latter does not know anything about revenue generation.
He said, ” These are the people who go about insinuating that there is crisis in the Revenue House. There is no crisis in the Revenue House. We have a Chairman and every Executive Director report directly to the Chairman and Dr. Greg Ezeilo is our Chairman.
There is no crisis in the Revenue House for God’s sake and there is no leadership tussle anywhere. I can confirm to you that there is no differences anywhere in the Revenue House. People should stop porknosing into where they have no business.
There is no war anywhere in the Revenue House and Governor Soludo has not made any mistake by creating Executive Directorship office because it is to enhance the revenue generation of the state.
I look at that as a very stupid comment by anyone. They should not drag the governor into unnecessary issues or drag any of the Executive Directors into unnecessary issues.
We are working as a team and one of us has been elevated to the Chairman of the Board and we report to him. Our Chairman now is Dr. Greg Ezeilo and we work together as a team to advance revenue generation of the state. So people should say what they know and not what they don’t know. ”
