A concerned citizen and a youth from Agbor kingdom, Comr. Jerry Amadasu, has berated the executive arm of Ika South Local Government Council over what he alleged as high handedness in providing governance to the people.
This, Amadasu reiterated while reacting to the damaged of a section of the on going new Edike Market construction, caused by an early hour downpour which occurred during the week.
He accused the council chairman, property committee of using substandard materials for the project, noting that the damage was a prove of his selfishness.
He said, “this is not partisanship but a call for great concern, particularly for the youths who should always endeavour to vote the right persons into power. If we continue to fold our hands, we shall have ourselves to blame in future.”
“I wish to ask that, what if the construction of the temporal market was completed and our mothers and sister are under it’s roof when a more terrible downpour occurrs? This will eventually bring the entire local government into a big disaster.
“I am disappointed at the Council Chairman, Hon. Barr. Victor Okoh, who has nothing to show for his three years in office. And now that he finally has something meaningful to do for the people, he carelessly shamed himself by using a substandard materials for the construction of the new market. And this was made possible because there was no check and balances,” he said.
“Comparing his work to the similar project being done by a sister local government council headed by Hon. Barr. Victor Ebonka, it appears that we don’t have government in Ika South LGA,” Amadasu added.
While advising the Council Chairman to correct his wrong with the limited time he has, Amadasu called on all stakeholders in the area to wake up and defend their place of pride before the situation degenerate to a higher level.
Speaking further, he advocated for an annual town hall meetings where the political class in government could give their score cards. This, Amadasu said will put the elected officers on their toes to deliver on their mandate.
