Of a truth, the government of Rotimi Akeredolu which seems a lonely affair, has desecrated the labours of our heroes past. All known legacies have been reversed to zero. From the skyrocketed AAUA’s tuition to the neglect of the Mother and Child Hospital, which indicates an outright attack on the sanctity of life.
The wealth sharing efforts of previous administrations through the direct labour scheme has been subjected to an abrupt halt. To the decaying infrastructures, which is lying fallow in waste to the kick-off of cosmetic conduit pipes. What shall we also call the slashing of OSOPADEC Bursary from #40,000 by half to #20,000?
I had refrained from putting up a long article on the activities of Governor Akeredolu and his government of absurd. This decision is not unconnected with the fact that the administration has demonstrated its willingness not to give a flying duck about public opinion on a number of occasions.
Since the kick-off of this administration on February 26, 2017, the head of the oligarchy, his appointees and malnourished party members, have treated all discerning voices with much hatred and misplaced transfer of aggression.
Questions have been mooted about the quality of minds around the henchman. Those chosen to help think, are taking advantage to gather the crumbs falling off the table. Obviously, they have not been able to keep their conscience at bay but they want to live beclouds their ability to say the truth.
Tell me what benefit is there to reap from the Ore flyover bridge that’s alleged to have gulped a bogus #6.5b aside it’s cosmetic benefits. Okitipupa Oil Palm Company will take over 5,000 jobless citizens off the street if that amount and a little more addition are invested into a public-private partnership. The over-reliance on federal government rebates and the overtaxing of overburdened citizens would be reduced in a short term.
The management of information by the media aides of the Governor and the State Government has been at an all-time low with press releases oftentimes embedded with rhetorics and name-calling with no or little treatment of issues.
Most times you would think a rebuttal would have been effective but they will either feign ignorance or attack people by calling them names. This rot is not limited to their department, as some of them are also galloping around town, looking for who to attack. Some say they believe the head or tail that Buhari’s “electoral reforms” will ensure a second term for their master. But have they forgotten about posterity?
