I will never exonerate His Excellency,Govenor Yahaya Bello from the collapse Okengwe street in okene local government instead he should see me as a friend who likes to tell him the truth, in this life, we have so many friends, some foes also dressed up as a friend they will tell you what pleases you , massaging your ego to take what they needs, I don’t do such , I am a friend who’ll tell him the needed true, he has failed and that is obvious everywhere but, I will not join those mocking him secret, he should read me and possible adjust.
Over the night, I received so many opinions trying to blame the contractor instead of the governor, as is the usual case in Nigeria. To some the governor should be praised for even awarding the contract.
Well, this line of argument makes some sense only if the money used for the contract is the governor’s personal money.
I agree with some of them to some extent. Yes, I do out of pity for those who do not know their own rights and the duties of public officials.
Okengwe street in okene local government of Kogi state
Come to think of it, can the Kogi state government under Governor Yahaya Bello tell Kogites that they do not have any interest in the said contract?
I would be ready to tender a sincere apology to my Governor if the following questions are validly answered.
What is the identity of the contractor that handled this collapsed and good for nothing project ?
What is the name of the company ?
What is the value of the awarded road?
Who are the government engineers that supervised the construction of Okene Bridge ?
Which ministry supervised the projects ?
What is the time limit ?
Was the total money that budgeted for this job released to the contractor ?
If I get this details then I will tender an open apology.
