On what planet do these people live on?

September 1, 2007

FORMER Bayelsa State governor, Dr Diepreye Alamieyeseigha yesterday returned home to a rousing welcome in Yenegoa, the state capital and his hometown, Amassoma. A ROUSING WELCOME! Received by his community as a conqueror! On what planet do some of us live on? If you ever question why Nigeria will never overcome corruption, actions like this will quickly provide the answers you need. Some people from Amassoma and Yenegoa may not know any better, but most of them should feel embarrassed this morning.

 

The same infamy must apply to his “partner in sleaze”, the former Senate President Adolphus Wabara. Wabara was quoted at the civic reception as saying that he had come as representative of ‘his’ people to welcome ‘Chief’ Alamieyeseigha!

In a welcome address read by one time commissioner for Finance, one Mr Solomon Apreala of the Amassoma community, Alamieyeseigha was described as a great son and the day as a memorable one. Can you beat that? He had earlier been received by ‘Governor’ Timipre Sylva at the Government House!

 Ours is a country lacking decency and prospects.
