NewsReel-2 August 12, 2013 - Obi flays Anambra Senators for non-sponsorship of bills in Senate

 [ Masterweb Reports ] – Anambra State governor, Mr Peter Obi has said flayed some Senators from Anambra State who were part of those listed as not having ever sponsored a bill for the two years that they have stayed in the senate. 

 

It would be recalled that a national daily had last week published a list of 34 senators in the senate who never sponsored any bill for the two year that they have stayed in the red chambers.

 

Obi who though refrained from mentioning names of then senators said that they have not represented the state well by not helping to sponsor bills that will enhance the status and growth of the state.

 

“This is what we speak against all the time. You must as civil servants make your own contribution for the state to move forward. These are senators you elected by yourselves, and they went they and forgot to represent you.” Obi told civil servants.

 

He continued, “They only take their money there and every week they come back home to blare siren and cause trouble. Even a deaf and dumb would have been able to make a sign at the floor of the senate but they did not. Some of our senators were unable to sponsor even a bill, whereas a senator from Cross River State was able to sponsor 24 bills. So when it is time to cast your votes, you must know who you are voting, it must be someone that is ready to work for you.”

 

The governor who was speaking to civil servants at an event to mark civil service day in the state said that he has consistently used the same set of cars in his convoy for five years now, whereas they are some people who are aspiring to be governor and use over 50 exotic cars in their convoy, which they renew every six months.

 

“If you vote in people like that, you can be sure that they will use your money to fund their bogus lifestyle. Some of them have never used commercial planes to travel, and your votes will only help them to use public funds to fly around,” Obi said.

 

Obi assured the civil servants in the state he will continue to provide a conducive atmosphere for their work, noting that they are the engine on which the wheels of government runs. He also reminded them that government is continuity, and that his prayer is for a better person than him would emerge as his successor.
