There was high hope and sigh of relief that our own is now at the helms in Kogi State and that all wrongs will be made right. This is far from being achieved. Although, you started well, with some of your brilliant pronouncements which received commendation. I became lost when appointments were being reeled out. I was patient and careful not to criticise early, but to watch the scenario as it unfolds. But from retrospects on the past three years, I feel something should be done about the present situation in the state.
Your excellency Sir, We should not pretend that all is well with our state, it is NOT.
Many people maintained that you have been let down by your appointees whom you trusted so much. Our elders says, God gives us our friends but we choose our friends. Remember also that when the chips are down you will be the one to take the blame for everything that happened. And it is us, and not God, who will bear the consequences of any choice we make. The wood insect (Arigishegi) that gathers sticks on its head carries it alone.
Your Excellency Sir, there is a big lesson to be learned from Anebira political class and elites who benefited immensely from his government.
Finally Sir, MY CONCERNS are, when people are fed up, then time is up and a clearest indication that we have outlived our welcome. When the time is up, no amount of deceptive campaign promises could keep us in power. The Nigerian voters that I know are simple and sophisticated than you can imagine. No amount of monopolization of the media space will save us. No amount of money could stop our defeat. No amount of local and national celebrity endorsements could help us. And no amount of vote buying could stand the irresistible hurricane of change that will shake us all.
