I just finished reading one disappointing post, where they posted pictures of the “Bendy-School Buses” Ossy Prestige procured some months ago as his achievement in education for the good & hard working people of Aba North & South Federal Constituency.
For clarity sake, I’m not by any means against him buying those kwashiorkor buses, however, where I’m concerned is the fact that he failed to tell the public that those buses couldn’t survive 3months after its procurement. The engine was brought down and was abandoned at Park road.
It cost a lot of traffic on that road for so many weeks before he was asked to move them away from that road.
When he managed to get the buses partially back to work, they couldn’t ply some badly damaged federal roads within his constituency like Obohia Road, Ohanku Road etc even the failed Garden Avenue he claimed to have constructed that couldn’t survive the test of time.
The buses only runs within the Osisioma axis of Aba owerri road leaving behind true Aba Federal Constituency school Children.
As a Federal law maker, he couldn’t call the attention of federal government to come and assuage the sufferings of his constituents on those badly damaged roads.
That’s so sad & embarrassing.
Is he “deaf & dumb” that he can’t even voice some of our challenges out during house plenaries?
Clearly, he does not understand the situation of Aba.
What is our crime in Aba?
Ossy Prestige left everything for Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu. If he had at least tried attracting the attention of the Federal government to some of these Federal roads, we would have had added good roads in Aba just like Dr. Okezie Victor Ikpeazu has successfully brought life back to roads like Faulks Road, Aba Owerri Road, Owerri Road, Ibadan Street, Agharandu, Ukaegbu, Umuola, Onyebuchi etc, all in Aba.
We as a people must not leave everything in the hands of the Governor alone. Governance is like a chain. It must not be left in the hands of one person. It has to do with collective effort. As a legislator, he ought to have ensured something is done on those roads to enable his purported school buses ply on true roads within his constituency & not another constituency.
This is total wickedness to the people of Aba. School children within his constituency has never for any day enjoyed those buses.
People are very worried and totally disappointed in Ossy Prestige. He must be voted out for a right personality tested & trusted. We can’t continue this way for Christ sake. Nigerians should come to our rescue.
