Sit-at-home: Listen to the people, stop fighting them – Ex International boxer urges Buhari, Southeast leaders

Ex International Boxer and Ambassador for sports in boxing, Mazi Ikechukwu Okoronkwo has lamented bitterly on the Federal Government, southeast leaders’ carefree attitude towards the body language (sit-at-home) of the masses in the southeast.

Mazi Okoronkwo who expressed this bitterness while speaking to the press in his residence in Enugu on monday said;

“Believe me this guys (our south east political office holders) did not understand what is on ground now. What we are seeing at grassroot is far from the understanding of many of Igbo politicians”

He continued “like I had already suggested to President Buhari through this medium to respect Igbo’s public opinion through the body language of Sit at Home and ask his attorney general to drop the case against Nnamdi Kanu and look into the complain of the south east public with a view to providing practical solution, because almost all our political office holders have soil their hands with one corrupt practice or the other. Our Government institutions are practicing nepotism and most of the roads linking Communities to Urban areas are not done Accordingly in some state”

Selfishness is the order of the day by the leaders, he said. The public have lost Confidence in their current political leaders.

Making a suggestion, Mazi Okoronkwo said “I think the good option is for our politicians to repent and allow positive things to work properly so that the public will enjoy the full dividends of Democracy”.

The Ambassador concluded by saying “I was expecting our Senators to adjust and advise the president to listen to the public rather than fighting the public. Because Leaders are for the people and not the people for the Leaders alone”.

LERSA President, Chief James Emadoye, while inspecting the building on Wednesday preparatory to its inauguration and handing over to the Nigeria Police Force, said the project was 95 per cent completed.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that many police stations and business premises and property were destroyed during the EndSARS protests exactly a year ago.

“Members of the association recall the wanton destruction that followed the unfortunate incidence of the protests last year.

“The association almost completed the development of a block of office to accommodate the police, while waiting for government’s full construction of the police station, which was totally destroyed last year.

“The Exco of LERSA approved and released the sum of N8.5 million for the project, which was donated financially and materially by the members.

Police to assist them in the discharge of their duties.

“As at today, we would like to thank God that this project is 95 per cent completed,” he said.

Emadoye noted that the association was committed to continually intervene in all manners, as a responsible organisation with programmes that would affect the lives of citizens in Lekki area.

He commended Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu-led government over the maintenance of the roads and for the progress made in the construction of the Lekki Regional Road.

“We trust that the government would fulfill its promises by starting the coastal road before the end of its term in office.

“A Lagos of peace and tranquility and a true mega city, which will be home to all and a greater Lekki Peninsula, which shall be the destination for living, tourism and businesses in Nigeria.”

CSP Tajudeen Mustapha, Divisional Police Officer on hand at the project inspection, commended the association’s assistance to the Nigeria Police Force.

He noted that the building would be used and continuously maintained to the very high standard that the association had provided.
