Obong Inuaeyen noted that “as we look back at that critical point of our state history,  we can all say with pride that given the record of achievements and giant strides made by the Governor in the areas of political inclusiveness, industrialization, culture and Tourism,  infrastructural consolidation,  economic empowerment, power generation and supply, boost in agriculture and economic diversification among others, we are not only vindicated but satisfied that a right choice was made in 2015”

He stated that with another term in office,  a lot will be achieved for the benefit of the people and announced the endorsement of the Governor for reelection next year with a vow to mobilize support across the state for that purpose.

The Chancellor thanked the Governor who is the Grand Patron of the organization for the courage to embrace and mobilize intellects in the state to work with him and expressed optimism that such interface will enhance governance and speed up the process of development.

Amaechi Vows To Release Names Of Those Sabotaging Security

Published

By


Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has said that cabals are frustrating the recently approved $198m maritime security contract.

Amaechi vowed to publicly mention names of saboteurs while speaking at a Maritime Stakeholders’ Interactive Forum held in Warri, Delta State on Thursday.

He said “Reason, why vessels will not come to the Eastern ports, is because there is war insurance due to insecurity in the ports here.

“The war insurance means if the goods cost N10,000 in Lagos, it will cost N20,000 here because there is an extra cost on it due to Insecurity issues. Even as a minister, I can’t enter a boat ride from Warri to Port Harcourt due to insecurity issues, but I can move around Lagos at any time of the day.

“I once asked a former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, why people from Anambra don’t import from Port Harcourt port, and he said it cost less to import from Lagos and move to Onitsha even with the price they pay on the road. It is cheaper to import from Lagos to Aba, yet Aba to Port Harcourt is a 30-minute drive.

“For shipowners, you need to do a petition to Mr President. The President approved a contract of $195m for maritime security, but there are people in the system sabotaging the contract because it will restore security in the water. I won’t say who they are until it gets out of control. We are still battling for the contract to take place, but if it gets out of place, we will name them publicly, including the security people involved.

“There are people who make billions of Dollars from the insecurity on the water, so they don’t want security on the water because if we secure the water, all their rubbish will go.

“There are businesses which provide the vessel for oil companies in the name of providing security. The moment we secure the water, they are out of jobs?

I am not a psychologist but I know in that in Nigeria  we lack the culture of looking out for the signs of mental fatigue amongst our workers in all sector. Military /Paramilitary have no proper way of been evaluated for any form of work trauma. This man could be having or experiencing trauma as the result of the nature of his job.
