Is there any day, you will not hear of the Executive Governor of Rivers State His Excellency, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike CON, GSSRS, POS (Africa) commisioning one project or other, inviting too dignitaries to cut the symbolic tape?
It will shock you to know that Mr. Project is yet to commission a single project in Andoni LGA. The same LGA that pool the 3rd largest votes to give him victory in 2015 elections! AdasiScience can authoritatively report
The only major project ongoing is the Ogoni-Andoni-Opobo/Nkoro Unity Road, which was awarded since the Peter Odili regime, 18 years ago. In fact the Opobo axis of the Unity Road is almost ready for commissiong on 3rd July, 2021while the Andoni axis of the road is only hinged on hope!
Some may even be wondering if no Andoni person is in the present government to speak for his people? Far from it! The incumbent Speaker, Rivers State House of Assembly, the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Head of Service and even PDP National Chairman are all Andoni sons! Infact some of them join Mr. Project to commission all the time, elsewhere.
Perhaps, some may just conclude “It’s good for them, if it’s so”. Let’s not forget, that a governor should be the governor of all! Morever, Andoni is one of the oil producing LGAs in the State yet nothing to show for it!
Insecurity has also increased in the area. presently over 14 Communities within the Isiokwan District has been deserted since April till date, yet there’s no serious concern from the part of government either to cater for the internally displaced persons or restore peace in the affected communities.
Have you ever wondered why this is so? I am equally trying to figure out what the reason actually is, yet the more I do so the more annoying and unimaginable it becomes! Why should an ethnic nationality be so neglected?
Must citizens agitate and become violent for government to listen to them? Will the masses welfare be a tool to settle political differences of titans? Can’t our (Andoni) sons and daughters in government (present regime) strive to make positive impacts in their homes while they occupy such exalted offices in the State?
Whether Gov. Wike will decide to focus, greater attention to Andoni LGA in the remaining 2 years of his tenure, only time will tell! #OboloEmancipation #TheTimeIsNow
