Former CPC Deputy Gubernatorial candidate, Dr. Okechukwu .S. Mezu has proven himself to be a thoughtful and sensible leader on tough issues affecting the Political affairs of our Country. While not many have been brave enough to address President Goodluck Jonathan’s proposed Six year term, Dr. Mezu articulately delivers an excellent piece in review of the Bill.
Appropriately titled – THE LOUD DRUMS OF CIVIL WAR ARE SOUNDING IN NIGERIA:
No Six Year Term for President and Governors
Here are some Excerpts:
“What is the urgency for term elongation for the President and State Governors who find it difficult to pay the poor, lean and hungry looking civil servant a paltry proposed minimum wage of N18,000 (Naira about $120 US Dollars) a month?.”
“. . . . the call for a six-year term for the President and the State Governors is an unnecessary distraction in Nigeria where most of those in government came to power through election rigging, multiple thumb-printing of ballots by individuals, killing and maiming of political opponents..”
“The interest of some of these vampires is not good government or governance but the looting of the National Treasury”.
The Elder Statesman bodly rips the BILL apart as he takes us down memory lane to the Nigeria – Biafra War (1967-1970). He raises questions only President Jonathan can answer. Visit our Affiliate blog – POLITICS NIGERIA to read the article in full.
PLEASE TAKE YOUR DICTIONARY ALONG!
A few months back, I opposed the candidacy of Dr. S. Okechukwu alongside Hon.Emeka Nwajuba at the Gubernatorial elections. I still maintain my stance. In my opinion, it was a mismatched ticket; he was too good to serve the State as a Deputy Governor.
I am also of the opinion that Leaders of his calibre are the kind of representatives we need in the Presidency. With Advisers like Dr.Mezu in a Federal Cabinet, such BILLS would not leave the mouth of any President. Let alone, be seen at the National Assembly. . .
