A chieftain of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka, has urged Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra to sack non performing aides, if he wants to retain his seat in 2017.
Ezeonwuka gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Awka on Monday.
According to him, most of the commissioners and other aides appointed by the governor lack the vision and creativity to generate ideas to compliment the governor’s hard work.
“Things are going wrong in the state; the sycophants are not telling you the truth, they manufacture lies to please what you want to hear, that things are working.
“Ask your commissioners and other aides to submit to you the blueprint of what they have achieved since their appointments to justify their salaries.
“I advise that you sack them and inject goal-getters into your administration, so that we shall win the election again.
“I am more on the ground in the state to tell you the truth and nothing but the truth,” he claimed.
Ezeonwuka also advised the governor to review the activities of the tax agents appointed by the administration.
“As it is today, the government has lost its credibility with the masses due to the activities of some revenue agents, particularly the “Ocha Brigade’’.
“His Excellency may not know that Anambra today is worse than Borno where the Boko Haram sect is tormenting innocent people with the activities of some of these revenue agents.’’
Ezeonwuka, who is a member of the party’s Board of Trustees, claimed that the tax agents had sent many traders in Onitsha, including women, out of the state.
“The complaints are much, and it will be counter productive to us during the elections.” (NAN)
