By Obed Oluku…
We are disturbed over the delay in distribution of the second rounds of the palliatives which is the Federal government donation to various states in the country. Every state have distributed to her citizens the federal palliatives sent to the various states. The delay in distribution of Delta State Federal government palliatives is suspicious.
The delay is a enough reason to accuse Delta State Government of attempts to manipulate the palliatives and convert it to personal property and share it among political officer holders in the state. It would be recalled that his excellency senator Ifeanyi Okowa announced the distribution of the second rounds of the pallatives on 27th April, 2020 but till now the foods meant to curb the effects of covid-19 lockdown have not been distributed in the state. It is disappointing and disgusting.
We want to let senator Ifeanyi Okowa know that any attempt to manipulate the Federal government palliative in the state will be resisted because the foods were meant for Deltans and not for Delta government officials who are living on free foods and free pay. The delay for the distribution is uncalled for. Ifeanyi Okowa is becoming heartless, he seems to have no feelings on the suffering of Deltans in this suspicious times of covid-19 lockdown. Foods that were brought to the state since April were withheld till now. It is shameful! Except Governor Okowa and his government officials want to convert it, we see no reason for the unnecessary delay.
It is our humble call that Ifeanyi Okowa should resist the temptation of converting the Federal government palliative to personal property and immediately distribute it as there is no point for the delay for the distribution of the second rounds of the palliatives, except there is an ulterior motive to manipulate it.
