The Director–General of Okowa Legacy Group, (OLG) Chief Omanefe Oghenekaro has taken the APCin Delta state to the cleaners accusing it of deliberate falsehood, misinformation wicked propaganda, and misrepresentation of facts allegedly designed to incite Deltans against the Okowa Led Administration.
Speaking at Igbodo at the formal unveiling of the Okowa Legacy Group’s Economic Empowerment Programme for rural dwellers in Delta State, Chief Omanefe cautioned theAPC against cheap blackmail, skewed reports, unfounded rumors and other acts inimical to peace and democratic norms saying that the use of unregulated social media platforms to hoodwink gullible members of the society should be stopped forth with.
He particularly criticized the photo shopping of failed portions of roads not constructed by the Okowa administration to deceiveDeltans adding that no political party has the monopoly of propaganda and other indecent methods of achieving cheap political points.
The Okowa Legacy Group DG maintained that Nigerians and indeed Deltans were more politically consciousand wiser now than in 2015 saying that the blame game, buck passing and general demonizing of the PDP must give way to objective, fair and critical assessment of the performance of the Okowa Led administration based on its electoral promises vis-à-vis the reality on ground.
Chief Omanefe said the general public perception ofthe APC at the federal level is that it has failed to deliver on its electoral promises to Nigeria as exemplified by negative economic indices, general poverty in the land, deteriorating social infrastructures, and increasing agitation for a betterdeal among the diverse ethnic nationalities in the country.
He said the recent public outcry by the minister of state for petroleum, Mr. Ibe Kachukwu over monumental fraud and corruption in the NNPC and the grass cutting scandal involving the suspended secretary to the Government of the Federation SGF and other unwholesome activities by high ranking members of the APC led Federal Government were enough evidence that the APC had failed in its anti-corruptioncrusade.
Chief Omanefe condemned in very strong terms the selective prosecution of theanti-corruptioncrusade of the Federal Government and advised the APC to deliver on its electoral campaign promises to Nigerians and stop blaming the PDP for its (APC) failure to deliver adding than more than 2years in the saddle Nigerians are poorernow than they were in 2015 when APC came onboard.
In a good will message to the occasion, the founder of the group, Dr. Mrs. Isioma Okobah said the empowerment programme was designed toempower the economically weak and make them productive members of the society just as she said that the package was to augment the economic programme of the Delta State Government.
She charged the various component units of the group to work as a team to enable them succeed in executing the mandate and vision of the Okowa Legacy Group. Over 170 persons are benefiting fromthe economic empowerment package.
