I hope the party APC will put its thinking caps on to put in a process that will allow the people make the choice of who will lead the state from the Party without compromising honour. As it is today, I plead with the Party Leaders to put the interest of the people of the state in mind and end the sufferings of a people. Since the 2015 abrakadabra process that brought in the current Governor of the state, I strongly believe that the whole world and the party leadership are living witnesses to the worst administration of a government in Nigeria.
I cannot understand the pride of GYB when with all the available resources at his disposal he CANNOT boast of any meaningful project he has done to alleviate the suffering of the people. When opportunity was given to him against the wishes of the people, he was expected to use the tenure to surprise the people in performance and good governance, but yes the people were so surprised with his lack of knowledge, and interest of the people at heart.
I was not surprised that he has failed and will fail again because when you look at his background, after school,he served at Revenue Mobilization commission and rose to level 12,and suddenly became a ‘millionaire’. We should ask ourselves how can a level 12 officer become a millionaire in less than 5years of graduation if not involved in stealing government funds? Then he was rewarded with a victory he was never part of. How could he have taken the people into heart? So he got a licence to steal and steal and steal. So,as the very very very bad tenure moves to final burial, the APC must be watchful not to make same mistake. When GYB knew that he will be asking for second term from the people, why did he not do what is right with the people? If by any default he gets the party ticket(God forbids), and wins election,then the state will finally go into comatose.
To the party, I still don’t understand why and how they come to decide on Indirect Primaries despite all available evidences before them? With History of past events on elections and cancellation of elections at the disposal of the Party? We must learn from history. If the Party is not concerned about the people and their well being, give them access to freely choose their governor, I’m sure the people of the state will take appropriate decision at the ballot boxes. I will come back on the contenders and the delegates when collection of Forms closes.
