"Chairman of the task force on recovery of public properties, Dr. Placid Ekwueme, disclosed this to journalists in Owerri at the weekend. Ekwueme, who briefed reporters alongside the secretary of the committee, Larry Ajaero, however exonerated the immediate past governor, Ikedi Ohakim, of carting away government vehicles. Instead, he accused him of allegedly approving the use of public funds for the purchase of several Toyota Camry cars, which were distributed as gifts to politicians. Ekwueme vowed that his committee would recover all such vehicles, promising also that the source of purchase of any vehicle seized would be ascertained." The Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, Chief Blyden Amajiruowu, last week, alerted the public that the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), led by Chief Rochas Okorocha, is using the task force to hunt PDP officials, including the Organising Secretary of the party in the state, Chief Linus Iroha.
That's the problem with our leaders....from president to the local government chairman. They all got political godfathers who helped them secure their seat. Therefore they will always remain loyal to them, regardless of the circumstance. I don't think its every Naija politician's aim to come into power, loot as much as possible, and do nothing for the people he/she is representing. I'm very much sure some of them had the intention of making a positive difference when they get into power. But how can you do that when the person who helped you get to that level tells you not to do it? So my people that na the major problem wey we dey face for Naija oh. And until these various political godfathers such as OBJ, Babangida and co. are brought to justice, there will not be any drastic positive change in Naija. Period!!!
Kudos to governors like Rochas, Fashola and Amaechi, wey no really send about stepping on anyone's toes in order to serve their people in the right way.
I for like know wetin dem go do with the cars shaa ;)
