Read Dr. Uche Diala ‘s findings on the allegation against @HUPcct on “Conditional Cash Transfer Program.” [VIDEO]

Earlier Today, 13th April 2020, A Respected Member Of This Forum Made A Sensational Allegation That The Picture Of His Late Aunt From Anambra Who Died In December 2018 Was Being Shared By Officials Of The Conditional Cash Transfer As One Of Those Who Benefited From The Disbursement Of N20,000 CCT In Anambra State Last Week.

Considering The Seriousness And Sensitivity Of The Allegation, I Launched An Investigation Into The Matter. I Promised That I Will To Get To The Root Of The Matter And I Have Done So And I Now Report Back To Us.

First I Requested The Forumite To Send Me The Picture He Was Referring To Which He Did.

Next, I Went To The @HUPcct Twitter Handle And Confirmed That Indeed That Picture Was There But Contrary To The Claim By The Forumite That It Was Used For Anambra State, The Picture Was Put As One Of The Beneficiaries From Aboh Mbaise In Imo State.

It Is Worthy Of Mention Here That The Same Picture Of The Same Woman Has Been Used By Certain Blog Sites Alleging That The Beneficiary (The Same Woman) Said That After Their Pictures Were Taken With The N20,000, It Was Taken From Them And They Were Given N2,000 Instead.

Armed With Those Information And Screenshots, I Escalated The Matter And Forwarded All The Materials Gathered To The HUPcct Through Mr Henry Ayade An Official Of The Program. In Fact He Handles Their Official Twitter Handle And Uploaded The Said Picture(S) Himself.

I Had Earlier Explained To The Forumite That The Twitter Handle Only Uploads Information Sent By The State Coordinators Of The Program.

Mr Ayade Promptly Got Back To Me After Confronting The Imo State Coordinator Of The Program, Mr Joseph Odoemena With The Sensational And Serious Allegation(S).
He Said The Coordinator Affirmed Without Prevarication That The Picture Was Taken On Saturday At Aboh Mbaise, Imo State And That He Personally Forwarded It To The Headquarters.

He Further Said He Would Send Me The Coordinator’s Number Which He Did. I Called The Coordinator And Presented The Allegations.
He Told Me Unequivocally That There Was No Mistake. That The Picture In Question Was Taken On Saturday At Aboh Mbaise, That The Woman In The Picture Was From Aboh Mbaise And Couldn’t Have Been Dead As She Was One Of Those Who Received Money On Saturday.

I Also Asked Him About The Allegations By Some Blogs (Although Not Credible Sites) That The Same Woman Said The N20,000 Was Taken Away From Them After Snapping Pictures With It And They Were Given N2,000 Instead. He Said That Was A Wicked Lie.

The Imo State Coordinator Then Offered To Go To Aboh Mbaise To Trace The Woman In The Picture And If And When He Finds Her, He Will Take Pictures And Even Interview Her On Video. I Agreed.

He Went To Aboh Mbaise And Indeed Saw The Same Woman In The Picture And Actually Did A Video Which He Has Sent To Me. There Is Also An Interview With The Woman’s Son.

I Want Us To Carefully Watch The Videos As Attached And Compare With The Picture Of The Woman.

The Videos Are In Igbo. Therefore For The Benefit Of Those Who Do Not Understand Igbo, I Have Transcribed The Two Videos Below.


Where Are You From?
Woman: I’m From Umuodaa In Ahiaato Aboh Mbaise.

Q: On This Day, You Are Talking Like Someone Who Is Alive. Is That Correct?

Woman: Yes!! Yes!!!

Q: .. Because They Said You Were Dead …. But You Are Not Dead. God Will Keep You Alive In Jesus’ Name.

Woman: Amen!!

Q: When Did You People Receive That Money?

Woman: It Was On Saturday Afternoon.

Q: How Much Were You Given?

Woman: Twenty Thousand.

Q: Did Anyone Collect Money From You After You Were Given The Money?

Answer: No!!! No Body!!
They Gave Me, I Looked For A “Cyclist” Because I Couldn’t Go To Afor Enyiogwugwu (Market). I’m Not Strong. I Returned To Umuwoko, Umuodaa In Ahiaato.

Q: God Bless You.

Woman: Amen Oo.

Q: Tell The Entire World That You Are Alive.

Woman: The Entire World, I’m Alive Oo. God (Crying).

Q: Thank You.


“This Is Mrs Cordelia Linus Ewurum From Umulogho, Umuodaa, Nguru, Aboh Mbaise LGA.

She’s Alive And Healthy.

Last Saturday, She Went To Choko, Umunze And Collected Her Token, N20,000 As Was Given To Others.

There Was No Problem And Nobody Objected That She Is Answering Her Own Name Or Any Other Thing.

But All I Know Is She’s Alive And She Collected The Money On Behalf Of Herself.

Thank You.”

From The Foregoing And The Videos And Pictures, It Is Very Clear, Without Any Iota Of Doubt That The Woman In The Video Is The Same Woman In The Picture The Forumite Said Was The Picture Of His Late Aunt Who Died In December 2018.

She Is From Aboh Mbaise In Imo State. She Is Alive And Collected Her N20,000 CCT Money Herself And The Picture Posted By The HUPcct And Shared By Many Of Us Is Correct And Not A Photoshop As Alleged.

Also The Allegation By Some Faceless Blogs That She Said They Were Given N2,000 After Taking Pictures With N20,000 Is Untrue And #FakeNews.

I Will Urge Us All To Always Make Effort To Verify Every Information We Receive And To Be Very Sure Of Our Facts Before Making Any Allegations.

I Want To Sincerely Thank All Of Us And Especially Mr Henry Ayade Of HUPcct Abuja And Mr Joseph Odoemena, The Imo State Coordinator Of HUPcct.

They Are Shining Examples Of What A Public Servant Should Be – Diligent, Upright, Accountable, Dedicated And Swift In Action.

Thank You All.

Dr Uche Diala
