Bayelsa Non-indigenes Berate Chinedu Mbah, Throws Weight Behind DicksonFeatured, Latest News, News From The State Sunday, September 20th, 2015
BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The President-General of the Supreme Council for the non-indigenes in Bayelsa State, Mr. Sunny Chukwuezi, has described as appalling and condemnable, the comments made by former Senior Special Assistant to Governor Seriake Dickson on Non-Indigenes, Mr. Chinedu Mbah.
The former Senior Special Assistant, Mbah, recently said he resigned from his appointment, due to non-payment of workers and political appointees’ salaries by the State Government led by Hon. Seriake Dickson.
Speaking in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, Sunny Chukwuezi, condemned the act, noting that, it is worrisome for him to have made such comments, especially when knowing that they are baseless, untrue and without verifiable facts.
In his words, “I get worried, that people do not know the limit to go, he cannot in the name of politics, malign people for nothing, you cannot for the sake of politics, bite the fingers that fed you. Several persons worked for the Governor in 2011, but out of many, he was singled out for recognition and appointment, and after three years, just because you stepped down, you begin to talk for the sake of talking. You must give respect to who ever gave you the opportunity to serve”.
The President-General, while calling on the public to ignore the former Senior Special Assistant, Chinedu Mbah, described the State Chief Executive as a man with a large heart, who has accomodated and appointed the highest number of Non-Indigenes in the history of the State.
“Among the community of the Non-Indigenes we have a Commissioner serving in his cabinet, we currently have Special Assistants and Senior Special Assistants in Government, so if you talk about anybody that has carried the Non-Indigenes community along, as far as the state is concerned, Governor Dickson stands out, because I have been her since 1976. And, so for anybody to try to rubbish his achievements is out of his own ineptitude”.
Sunny Chukwuezi further underscored the developmental strides of the State Governor, stressing that, his numerous achievements alone would see him through the December 5 Governorship elections in the state.
He noted that the opposition party pose no threat, as none of the aspirants can match the Governor.
“There must be opposition politics as far as democracy is concerned, but who are the people coming out to contest? We know them very well even more than they know themselves, but they are not the kind of men God will allow to handle this State, because they will destroy this state”.
“They have been given opportunities before and what did they do? They messed up this land. For five whole years this land was in a shabby state, we are all witness to that. Its never been this good under Governor Dickson, infact it is indeed a total transformation”.
The President-General assured that the Supreme Council of Non-Indigenes is throwing its entire support to the Governor’s second term bid, as he enjoined Bayelsans to tow the path of truth and sustainability, by voting the Governor at the polls.
Meanwhile, the Bayelsa State Government has again described Chinedu Mbah, as a liar, pointing out that, his claims of resigning his appointement, as a result of non payment of salaries and allowances for the past one year, was total falsehood to placate the public on the real motive for his action.
A Government House statement reveals that, Mr. Mbah has been receiving his salaries, with a proof of his July, 2015 salary pay slip, indicating his total emoluments, as was remitted to his Stanbic IBTC Account number 0001790170.
The statement condemned the action of Mr. Mbah in its entirety and enjoined the general public to be weary of the opposition, APC and its foot soldiers, whose stock in trade, is to perpetuate falsehood and violence and wrest power from the PDP by all means and return the State back to its dark days.
