…our governors were playing hand ball excitedly and as usual they expect us to cheer them on for their efforts in leading to nowhere.
The National Secretary, Opposition Coalition, High Chief Peter Ameh make the statement on Arise TV live program this morning.
The monthly funding provided from Abuja to Nigerian state governors is seen as their personal funds or profit generated from their private investments. You must go to the governors, bow down before them, and shout their praises to the sky before you are deemed worthy of receiving any physical project in your town and if eventually listen to and dung a borehole which is one of their greatest legacy achievements then you will hear statement like, I have dogged boreholes in more than 60 communities, in fact,they are lauded and praised for covering employee compensation.Without any oversight, they spend the allotted funds.
The only purpose of The State Houses of Assembly is to pay salaries and assist governors. The governors leave office without providing an explanation for how public funds were used, the reason for their desperation to install a successor even at the cost of unleashing mayhem on the state which could lead to lost of life and properties. However, we assert that we live in a democracy. In this country, we make jokes more than we question those in authority or deliver the dividends of democracy.
People in Nigeria are in pain. Nigeria has no social facilities whatsoever, in addition to widespread hunger. nearly all Nigerians are struggling. Apart from widespread hunger, Nigeria has a complete lack of social amenities. The majority of our health institutions lack medical facilities to meet Nigerians’ health demands. The Nigerian government must act immediately.
Due to a lack of healthcare services, many individuals in our rural areas die from diseases that are curable and treatable. There were also no medical professionals. Yet our politicians are confident to go around professing to represent the people. How did we end up here?
We are suffering in the midst of abundance. Despite the misery of the majority, those in authority live in luxury. They have little concern for the impoverished and vulnerable members of society. Seeing folks in government going up and down, it is clear that they are doing so for personal gain in the majority of cases.
Retreat in Kigali. Spending the resources meant for the people to develop the IGR of another country that is currently doing far better than Nigeria
