The Accountant General of Delta state government, Cyril Agbele has been reportedly disappeared a few days to the inauguration of the new state governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa.
According to reports coming from the state, Agbele, disappeared from his office since last week and has switched off his phone.
Sources said the absence of the Accountant General may disrupt the programmes for the handing over of power from Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan to Dr. Okowa.
However, contrary to insinuations that Uduaghan had put pressure on Agbele for the release of funds, sources in the Government House said the disappearance of the Accountant General was due to the influence of the hawks in the camp of Okowa.
It was gathered that so far, funds requested for release by Uduaghan by Agbele were for security agencies, the state’s inauguration committee and the transition committee of the governor-elect.
The hawks in the Okowa camp are said to be bent on creating problems for the incoming governor who are using every available means to hinder a successful transition.
A Government House source said the action of the Accountant General as a political move by some hawks in the team of Okowa to create problem for him.
The major grouse of the hawks with Okowa, it was learnt, could be his good working relationship with Uduaghan despite the initial perception that he was going to be hostile to the outgoing governor.
A source in Okowa’s camp said: “The initial perception of a hostile relationship with Uduaghan appears to have failed as the two of them have been getting on well and are headed towards sustaining the camaraderie.
“This has been a source of worry for a lot of them who have been looking for every opportunity to create chaos and then make money through that means.
“The disappearance of the AG is the height of it all.”
