As Deltans prepare for the governorship election on April 11th, they have been warned forehand to prepare for four years of suffering and heavy tax payment by the All Progressive Congress (APC).
This warning was handed out during the daily sunrise live programme on Channels TV monitored by Secrets Reporters. Speaking for the APC, its Director of Media and Publicity, Dr Fred Latimore stated that once they are voted into power in the state, the governor will begin heavy taxation of the residents. According to Latimore, they are going to build roads which has already been built and put in structures to make people pay taxes through toll gates.
Speaking confidently of the harsh treatment that awaits Deltans, the APC clearly stated that its governorship candidate, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor will be a manager that will be dictatorial as he will make everybody do his will, without recourse to their input since he is more experienced haven worked in the banking and insurance industries.
According to Emerhor, they will bring in farmers from Zimbabwe or any other country to become farmers, whereas there are teeming youths who should rather be trained by tertiary institutions lecturers.
The media guru noted that his principal will no longer be in charge of providing infrastructures for Deltans, but will bring in private partners, while his government will only provide policy and enabling environment to make it work. Speaking like a magician, the APC promised to turn the State into the next Dubai, using just 20% of the allocation to do all that Governor Godswill Akpabio did in Akwa Ibom State.
Ironically. while toll gates has caused hardship in Nigeria, it is currently a practice in Lagos State which is an APC zone and also used as a means of tax revenue in developed country. But how they hope to make Deltans remains a wonder to wait for if they ever mount the saddle.
