Prof. Ayara who stated this while declaring open a three day capacity building training workshop for community management committee members organized by the State Community and Social Development Agency said that the agency had become a tool to touch the lives of people especially in the rural areas.

He said that the Governor Imoke’s led administration was very much committed to social development activities, adding that the programme which came into the state for poverty reduction had succeeded in changing the lives of the people while the agency had remained the most successful in all other agencies.

The Special Adviser who is also the state vice chairman of state planning commission said that the partnership between the state and World Bank was a true one where the World Bank had provided support and resources for the execution of the projects in the communities.

Ayara who said that the project was the most successful World Bank project in the state said that in every five communities in the state, about three were known to have been touched by the agency.

In his address, the General Manager of Community and Social Development Agency, Pastor Victor Ovat said that the state government had gone beyond its agreement of N100 million counterpart funding annually with the World Bank, adding that in 2012, the government approved N200 million.

Pastor Ovat who said that the agency had received funding beyond what the federal government and World Bank budgeted, said that so far about N706 million had been disbursed to implement various projects in the communities and that about 251 projects had been completed.

  • HDP FINDS THE COMMENT OF ONE PROF AYALA THE SPECIAL AUVISER TO THE CRS GOVERNOR AND VICE CHAIRMAN OF STATE PLANNING COMMISSION AS MOST FALLACIOUS, DUBIOUS, MALICIOUS, BASELESS, BLATANTLY MISLEADING AND TISSUE OF LIES DITCHED OUT BY A SYCHOPHANTIC SA TO AGAIN DECEIVE THE PEOPLE OR HOW DO WE EXPLAIN THE EMPTY, SHAMELESS CLAIM BY THIS MAN THAT THE VISIONLESS, WASTEFUL,PRODIGOUS CRSG IS TACKLING POVERTY, HOW? WHERE? WHEN? THE SA MUST NAME THE PROJECTS AND THE BENEFICIARIES, WE ARE AMAZED THAT AN ACADEMIC, A PROFESSOR WILL SUBMIT TO A USELESS, WORTHLESS APPOINMENT OF A MERE SA ON ECONOMIC PLANNING, PROF WHY? INSTEAD OF IMPARTING INVALUABLE KNOWLEDGE ON OUR YOUTHS, HE HAS ABANDONED THIS HEAVENLY WORK FOR A FILTHY LUCRE AND A SLAVE JOB MEANT FOR CHARLATANS ,ROUGH NECKS,PARTY THUGS, HOOLIGANS, CRIMINAL ELEMENTS AND GANGSTERS. WE ARE ASHAMED AND FLABBERGASTED AT THIS PROF. WE ASK YOU TO NAME THE VERIFIABLE VALUE YOUR POSITION HAS ADDED TO CRS SINCE YOU CAME ON BOARD. WE IN HDP ARE MOST SADDENED AT THE DUBIOUS AND 419 CLAIMS OF THE PROF THAT CRSG IS ON A POVERTY-TACKLING MISSION. WE INSIST THAT THE CURRENT IMOKES GOVT HAS WAREHOUSED AND HAS DELIBERATELY BEEN DISTRIBUTING, SPREADING AND DEEPENING POVERTY SINCE 2007 AS A VERITABLE INSTRUMENT OF POLITICAL CONTROLL IN THE STATE. WE KNOW THIS FAILED GOVT HAS NO PROJECTS OR PROGRAMMES MEANT TO REDUCE POVERTY, IT ROUTINELY EMBARKS ON AN END OF YEAR DECORATIVE PROJECTS AND CONTRACTS AWARDED TO CRONIES, SPOUSE, CONCUBINES RELATIONS AT OUTRAGEOUS COSTS WITHOUT DUE PROCESS. FOR THE PROF TO TELL BARE-FACED LIES IS A TESTAMENT THAT HE MUST BE SUFFERING FROM SEVERE GRANDIOSE DELUSIONS OF ABILITY AND ACHIEVEMENT THAT HE URGENTLY NEEDS A PSYCHIATRIC ASSESSMENT FOR A DISORDER KNOWN AS PERSISTENT DELUSIONAL DISORDER. WE SYMPATHISE WITH PROF AYALA BECAUSE A FELLOW US-BASED PROFESSOR OF ECONOMICS FROM BANGLADESH NAMED PROF MOHAMMED YUNUS FOUNDED AN UNUSUAL GREMEN BANK IN HIS HOMECOUNTRY THROUGH WHICH FOR OVER 35YEARS HE FOUGHT RURAL POVERTY BY GIVING UNPROTECTED LOAN TO EMPOWER THE RURAL POOR. HIS ACTIVITIES ATTRACTED WORLD ACCLAIM THAT HE WON A NOBEL PRIZE IN 2005, OUR OWN PROF HAS BECOME A LOCAL CHAMPION,A SLAVE BOY CONTRIBUTING FALSEHOOD AND CHEAP LIES TO SOCIETY. A PROF AND SA TO A FAILED GOVT WHO HAS LATELY EMBARKED ON A SHAMELESS VOYAGE OF FALSEHOOD AND DECEIT AMIDST A STATE THAT HAS WITNESSED GRINDING POVERTY,MISERY, HARDSHIP AND UNTOLD SUFFERING WITH PREVENTABLE DEATHS IN A FAKE, RICKETY AND DUBIOUS TOURISM STATE. WE CHALLENGE THE PROFESSOR SA TO TELL THE PEOPLE IN CLEAR, UNAMBIGOUS TERM THE CONCRETE ACHIEVEMENTS OF CRSG. THERE IS NONE ABSOLUTELY. THIS IS OUR STAND.
