As Delta State moves towards the prosperity agenda currently brought about by Governor Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa; one local government that will be left behind is Ndokwa East.
This is not unconnected with their electing of Mr Friday Osanebi who represents them in the State House of Assembly and also serves as the Deputy Speaker, but has held them captive for over four years since he got into the house in 2011.
The Deputy Speaker, Friday, who is secretly referred to as ‘Fraud Day’ is the lord of the manor in his community, deciding who gets what and as rumored in some quarters; that he holds the yam and the knife.
Ndokwa East which has been enmeshed in crisis following attempt to impeach the local government Chairman, Mrs Nkechi Chukwura we can authoritatively report is the handwork of Osanebi, who is becoming restless that the money meant for the council is no longer controlled by him, as well as the council boss refusing to be loyal to him. He has become angry as the lady no longer report the allocation for him to decide how it’s shared; even though he never wanted her as Chairman, but was chosen by former governor Emmanuel Uduaghan.
As a compensation for not allowing Friday and his cohorts to impose a Chairman on Ndokwa East, they imposed a Vice Chairman and Secretary on her. While she accepted the Vice Chairman, she kicked against the Secretary which led to the councilors not approving it. It was recently that she forced her way through and the Secretary to the local government was appointed. This prompted an impeachment procedure by the councilors loyal to Friday and Obielum who allegedly paid them the sum of N2 million each to carry out the hatchet job.
FRIDAY INSTITUTE FRAUD DAY
Like his name ironically sound, he instituted a culture of monthly fraud day in Ndokwa where authoritative voices from the council revealed that he milked the state dry of N2.5 million every month during the tenure of the former council boss, Alex Aniche, which was increased to N7 million by Nkechi, just to allow peace reign. The shortage of funds to the LG due to falling oil prices made her to stop it, but Friday will hear none of that and set the council on fire.
Despite collecting over N700 million as constituency allowances and from DESOPADEC, there is no tangible thing to show on what he has used the money for. Sources who confided in us states that he only bought cheap golf cars, popularly called ‘pure water’ and motorcycles, which is not up to N50 million for his loyal boys, with grinding machines for the women.
The looting lawmaker has milked his constituency dry by refusing to hands off transaction with Agip Company operating in the land, preferring to take the compensation of the community to his personal bank account than allow Agip carry out their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
One of such lootings was his personal handling of the Puntu contract with attempt to build bridge from Kwale to Beneku was killed by Friday after allegedly embezzling the funds.
In his belief that he’s the godfather of Ndokwa politics, the young political lord serves as the one who deals directly with oil companies in the region, negotiating the salaries of indigenes who will work as casual staff.
We gathered authoritatively that the master looter currently pays sixty five thousand Naira (N65,000) to the indigenes working with Nest Oil to lay pipe across the area despite the companying paying each of them Three Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira (N350,000). This fraud is made possible as Friday collects the entire money and pay them the meager sum, and anyone who dares to challenge him is relieved of the contract job.
The Deputy Speaker whose only function in the house since he got elected 4 years ago is to by ‘ayes’ member. His only contribution is to raise hands up when the Speaker says “those in support of this should say ‘ayes’, and with smile all over his face, he feels satisfied that he supported popular movement, a source within the legislative chambers confided in Secrets Reporters. He also has no constituency office in his locality where problems facing those he represents can be channeled to.
…AND OSANEBI USES BLACK MAGIC ON CONSTITUENTS
Those in the know reveals that he’s not only corrupt but diabolical, stating that he has tied the future of most of Ndokwa indigenes for political gain.
According to a source, his source of power is in India where he goes every six months but claims that he’s visiting the US or UK. Whenever he returnes from any of such diabolical trip, we gathered that he drives in at night and instructs his aides not to tell anyone that he’s around, till after three days.
When he’s out; it’s with smile on his face, he goes to the houses of the youths he finds charming and while shaking; he looks at the ground, which the source reveal is the act of taking the destiny of these youths.
Efforts to reach him to get his own side of the story proved abortive as his call was forwarded.
