I am strongly in support of the statements made by the Anglican Archbishop Enugu Ecclesiastical province, Most Revd. Dr. Emmanuel Chukwuma, where he urged President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently call Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha to order (in the Leader, Sunday December 31, 2017; P.7)
We are not foreigners in Imo State and Nigeria as a whole. Even those, who are strangers and foreigners, know the truth. Let us say the truth at all times. Let us stop telling lies. Let us remove sentiments and politics and call a spade a spade.
The questions are: of what economic values and significances are the moulding of statues to Imo State Government and the citizens?
Are the tax payers money used for meaningful and purposeful infrastructural development / essential amenities and to cushion the effects of shocks (example in transportation)?
Are there small and medium enterprises (SMES) and cottage industries to employ the youths and the unemployed persons?
Are we thinking of how, to reduce the fast growing crime rate and other societal ills?
What about the poor electricity supply / power (energy) in Imo State and Nigeria as a whole?
Are workers and pensioners paid as at when due?
What is the Imo State Government doing with the bail-out funds / Paris club money / moneies?
These are questions to be answered by the governor and his chief press secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo and others involved including the legislature.
The answers to these questions will score the governor’s achievement position on the scoring board for the public to see and take note and not by exaggeration.
The scoring of achievement cannot be by the re-naming of Maria Assumpta Avenue to Muhammadu Buhari Road or even part of it, as this is totally unacceptable to the entire Catholics and Imolites.
The chief shepherd / prelate – the metropolitan of the Owerri Ecclesiastical province – his grace Most. Revd. Dr. A. J. V. Obinna and the entire Catholics termed such action as an insult, a disrespect to the Holy Mother Mary and a slap on the Catholic Church Community.
The Catholics in the Archdiocese of Owerri strongly disagreed to this renaming and said it is unacceptable, even a part of it being renamed.
This present administration should think back, how it came to power and should respect the mandate of the people.
Both the executive and the legislative arms of government should at all cost, put and rule with enabling policies that are people centered, oriented, friendly, and workable based on consultations and respect for the rule of law.
