Nigerians, both elites and uninformed have lost the essence of Regime appointment into public Offices. A superior percent of the world consider appointments as an opportunity to partake in the looting spree as instituted by the yesteryear administrations.
The relations of the appointee, both instant and extended offers Thanksgiving to God, one of their have is remembered. Various families who traces their human relationship to the appointee through one link or the other will surreptitiously start reviving the human relationship which ordinarily had gone comatose or dead.
This comes by way of sending some of their children to assist in whatsoever domestic chores unsolicited. Through that agency, the children may gradually relocate to the residence of the NEW MAYOR in town, thereby expanding his domestic responsibilities. This circumstance eqaully goes to the village, Community, Church building etc.
These are the primary causes of kleptomania in public Offices.
During the 16years of PDP regulation in Nigeria, S Easterners were appointed into various plum and juicy Offices within the MDAs, Chairmen and membership of Federal Boards and parastatals. Due to the recklessness of the regime of the time, too many leakages and looting spree were in trend. In all probability, they lost the brain of the fact that modify is inevitable and a fixed variable.
All these years of surplus, nil was attracted to the S East. The Geopolitical zone witnessed gross infrastructural deficit. Non of the looted funds were invested locally. They were to a greater extent interested in working capital flying.
The 16years of PDP administration were wasted years for the S Easterners. All the statutory and Excess Rough Allocations shared amidst the States and Local governments were all ferried abroad. They were the best of friends of the Leader of the secessionist grouping IPOB. Nnamdi Kanu was mingling with Senator Andy Uba, His Excellency Hope Uzodinma and Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe. All PDP Chieftains and so. Little did they realise the risk of riding on a tiger’s dorsum.
When God took a choice to redirect the affairs of Nigeria for prosperity, He introduced ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS (APC) through Senator Ahmed Tinubu, Ogbonnia Onu, Rochas Okorocha and President, Mohammadu Buhari leading the legacy parties. God’s verdict became manifest on the 29th of May 2015 via people’s mandate for President, Mohammadu Buhari to canvas Nigeria out of the troubled waters of delusion, cluelessness and kleptomania.
As before long as the ENEMIES of the S East were thrown out of powerfulness, they felt a depth of pains downwardly their spines.
They resorted to blackmail, mudslinging, slander and the likes. They all moved downwardly home with all sorts of propaganda, garnished with excessive hatred and animosity. Existence a form, people were looking upward to, due to their opulence and place in the society, they became persuasion moulders, the guardian form within the Zone.
APC members, the President and the entire administration were labelled with all sorts of atrocious, derogatory, defamatory and denigrating names. Every APC fellow member was called “BOKO HARAM”. His Excellency, Senator Rochas Okorocha was known as ” OKORO AWUSA” and so on.
The Easterners were brainwashed that they were denied appointments but to the best of my knowledge, no statutory appointment meant for the S East by the Structure was denied. The ease was the prerogative of the President depending on the performance of each area during elections. The anger of losing powerfulness was and so translated into hatred for APC members, the President, Mohammadu Buhari and by extension, the Fulani tribe. The Terrorism grouping in the S East became their instruments of onslaught on the Fulani herdsmen in the various forests and bushes within the Zone owing to an orchestrated allegations of malicious harm on farmlands.
At a dot, you hear of Fulani agenda of Islamizing Nigeria. The propaganda are huge, immense. These are people that have been with us for so many decades without rancour.
One thing is to initiate a crisis, some other is to quell it. The state of affairs has so escalated that the Falcon can no longer hear the Falconer. The same PDP Men are streaming into APC at present, fermenting all fashion of problems in various States in a tender to hijack the political party structure. Their incursion into APC is nil but an deed of depredation. They have nil to offering. They came with no supporter. They could not provide anything for their people when they were trusted with public Business office, how can they provide it at present? Whether not that poverty blindfolds, the Easterners instead of stoning their failed representatives are trading blames in relation to due to brain poisoning. Poverty of the brain indeed.
Finally, the TRUE ENEMIES of the S East are the PDP. They trusted them but got robbed, used poisoned and sold out.
