The ‘nightmare road’ leading to the villages of some prominent Delta politicians – the same praise-singers of Ibori
By Zik Gbemre
ATTACHED are pictures showing the deplorable state of the road leading to the communities of some prominent politicians (names withheld) who have been in the corridors of power since 1999 under Delta State Government administrations of former Governor Chief James Ibori, former Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan and Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.
The terrible state of the road makes one to wonder if these politicians actually have any heart of empathy towards their people. And they were among the politicians that went to Oghara to celebrate Ibori’s prison release and return from UK recently. There is practically no motorable road to their villages of Otutuama, Ophorigbala, Esaba, Abadiama (Ighwreogu), Okwuemo, Otegbo and Egbo-Ide all in Ughievwen (Jeremi) Kingdom, Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State. These politicians are nothing but greedy and self-centered political leaders who only care about themselves and family and always play on the intelligence of the locals. I attended the burial ceremony of the mother of my friend, Mr Benson Omoko, at the mother’s home village in Ophorigbala on February 25, 2017. Travelling on the said road leading to the burial venue was a nightmare.
These politicians do not see anything wrong in the administration of Ibori who was jailed in the UK for committing corrupt atrocities against Deltans, and they are nothing but ‘professional praise singers’ and sycophants who always deceive both the people and those in the government with their oratory and sweet talks, so as to keep satisfying their stomach. Their likes are many in Delta State.
These politicians are “sweat talkers” who use their oratory to deceive the people. But how can these politicians continue to sing praises of Ibori and others when they can’t even drive to their own villages in Esaba, Otutuama, Ophorigbala and Abadiama, Ughelli South, Delta State? They include foremost politicians in Delta State Central, who have been very close to all the Governments in power, but yet, they cannot drive to their home villages. It is a big shame!
