Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chieftain, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has berated aggrieved Delta indigenes that have been protesting over non-appointments.
He stressed that their agitation for political appointments is not a yard stick for measuring development in their environment.
He said it is better to agitate for more developments that would touch peoples lives than asking for appointments that may not have meaningful impact in the lives of community people.
Onuesoke, who made the statement in Warri, Delta state while reacting to protests over appointments from the different tribes in the state, said such protests are uncalled for, hence the Delta state governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa had made salient appointments which spread equitably across the different tribes of the state and it is expected that more appointments will still roll in.
While urging Deltans to exercise patients that more appointments would still roll in as assured by Governor Okowa, he stated that Okowa had already made salient appointments recently, adding that as promised by him many more appointments will be made and it will be shared equitably to all.
Onuesoke argued that it would have been better for Deltans to agitate for development from Governor Okowa than demanding for appointments that might not spread to all, but few.
He added that if it is development that had to do with provision of good roads, health facilities, education, industrialisation and provision of jobs it will touch majority of the lives of people of Delta state.
“Although Okowa has achieved a lot in job creations, hence his government has created over 20,000 jobs, it would have been better to ask the governor to create programmes that will generate more jobs, build more roads, housing projects, education and health among others than agitating for appointments.”
