The leader of Ekiti Youths Socio-political revolution, Tosin Ajibare breaks silence on Ex-NDDC MD, Joy Nunieh’s saga.
He wrote on his Facebook page,
“On the Road to Progress:
To have strong institutions, what is required are established & set rules/laws (which we have), strong characters and “a public that is strongly committed to defending established values” – these are the parts that make up wholesome and strong institutions which now seem to have a life of their own.
It takes resignations and a group of people willing to go the whole nine yards to implant a new way of doing things.
Institutions are not buildings, they are me and you. Right now, what is the body language of the common people in the nine oil producing states that own NDDC, – Abia, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross River, Delta, Edo, Imo, Ondo and Rivers – are they showing concerns about the level of corruption leveled against the leadership? Are they even interested? Do they care?
When next you think about why corruption persists & impunity reigns, always remember that we as a people are culpable.
We live in a cocoon of individuality as against communalism. Until we understand and accept that these things are our collective concern and not just that of politicians, we won’t move forward.
NDDC is not about Akpabio, Lady Joy, Gov Wike & the other Governors, it’s about the people.
In a sane society, the duty of rescuing Lady Joy from the police siege should not have solely rest on the shoulders of Gov Wike, it was the duty of the people, we must learn to stand up for what is right.
Just imagine if Wike had been an APC Governor, what would have happened yesterday.
Tosin Ajibare Gold.
