Party chieftain knocks Nigerian governor, calling him lacking in vision



Tony Okocha, Leader/Chairman of the Caretaker Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers, southern Nigerian state, told governor, Governor Siminilaye Fubara, that he is leading the state to nowhere.

According to the party chieftain, Fubara’s government is directionless and lacking in vision.

Okocha expressed his dissatisfaction with the alleged lack of vision and practical solutions provided by Governor Fubara in the face of economic challenges in Rivers state.

The governor had a fallen out with his predecessor and former mentor, Nyisom Wike, who currently serves as Nigeria’s minister despite being of the same opposition.

Okocha condemned what he saw as extravagant celebrations and thanksgiving services in the state, questioning their relevance in alleviating the suffering of the people.

“We must condemn that which is condemnable and applaud that which is applaudable without minding or caring ten hoots, whose ox is gored,” he said according to  a statement released by his special assistant on Media, Amb. Vincent Gbosi.

He frowned at what he described as “ostentatious jamborees dubbed Thanksgiving Services in the streets of Rivers state,” at the expense of providing succour to Rivers people.

He urged Governor Fubara to learn from other state governors who are actively implementing policies to improve the lives of their citizens.
