Buhari’s cows faring better than Nigerians — Governor’s aide

An aide to the Akwa Ibom governor has accused Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari of abandoning the people to economic hardship and fuel crisis, while according more care to his cows.

Filling stations across Akwa Ibom, for instance, now sell fuel at N170 against the government approved price of N145.

Governor Udom Emmanuel’s media aide, Essien Ndueso, on Thursday posted on Facebook, photos of Mr. Buhari’s recent visit to his ranch in Daura. He said of the photos, “Today, we are in an administration that cows fare better than human beings.”

Apparently mocking the president, Mr. Ndueso said, “If the cost of grass were to increase, or if anyone were to temper with the comfort of these cows, I am sure Baba would come back and take urgent actions.

“Today fuel is N180 and those who earn their wages monthly from worshipping Baba on Facebook are also suffering the same fate,” he said.

The governor’s aide, who also criticised the human rights community in the state for not speaking up against the increase in fuel price, dared a well-known Buhari supporter in the state, Imaobong Akpan, to lead a campaign against the increase.

But Ms. Akpan reacted by asking Governor Emmanuel to call his aide to order.

“This is a president that has been the most magnanimous to the welfare of Nigerians, and specifically the governors through the regular and timely release of budget support funds, Paris club refunds, and other social intervention funds meant to alleviate the sufferings of Nigerians, of which Gov Udom Emmanuel, Mr. Essien’s boss is a major beneficiary,” she told PREMIUM TIMES, Thursday.

“It is on record that Mr. President has been very kind to the people of Akwa Ibom State through the various appointments and other strategic partnerships meant to grow the economy of Akwa Ibom.

“The fuel crisis in the country is traceable to deliberate sabotage which I believe the government is addressing and therefore should not be politicised,” she said.

    Governor Udom Emmanuel’s media aide, Essien Ndueso is completely out of order. What is the the state administration doing to improve the lot of the ordinary person in Akwa Ibom? If Nigerians put their search light on your state, Governor Udom will sweat – hewill have to account for every kobo of Federal allocation the state has collected. Even records of his predecessor’s wasteful stewardship will be highlighted. Essien probably wants to sound and act like Fayose’s gutter media man.

    This is what you get when you turn government to family business, using relatives and friends to run the government. If okorocha can make his relatives aides why not Udom. I’m sure they’ll use their grannies and fore fathers as commissioners of Ancestral ministry. Dimwits.

    A government under a cow breeder is a government for the cows. Cows have more value than human beings under this clueless failed APC government.
