The attitude of those that we often elect as our representatives or leaders in various political capacities in Abia state has always painted a picture of ridicule and mockery of the offices they occupy.
In the last two weeks the Abia airwaves and newspapers has been inundated with paid advertorials, sponsored congratulatory messages and praise singing newstalk from friends of Senator Mao Arukwe Ohuabunwa with every Radio and television station in Abia singing with his name and thanking him for attracting the rehabilitation of Arochukwu/Ohafia road, while on the other hand Hon. Uko Nkole was seen on ground right from the day the contractor touched base and was right there guiding them and addressing the people while Senator MAO was on radio congratulating himself for turning an impossibility to possibility.
While I do not have problems with the roles each of them had played in bringing to site the contractors to come and work on the road, my worry is why the conflict of interest, are they not supposed to be working in synergy, why is Sen. MAO labouring so much to be tagged as the man that attracted the rehabilitation project?
On the part of the Hon. Uko Nkole who though has not shown enough presence in the green chambers, did he attract the road rehabilitation project or can it be said that he outsmarted or snatched Sen. Ohuabunwa’s project that made the Senator to engage in a ferocious media outreach which costs if put together can grade half of the road in contest?
What is really going on and when are we supposed to put a stop to our customary celebration of nullity?
