Gov. Sherrif accuses political office holders of negligence

GOVERNOR Ali Modu Sheriff of Borno state has expressed dissatisfaction with some political office holders who contested and won elections under the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) in the state, but failed to deliver dividends of democracy to the people.

Sheriff made his feelings known in an interview with newsmen at the Council Headquarters of Konduga town during his official visit/tour to inspect and commission projects, stressing that lawmakers that have not been coming to him might not have gone to the electorate too and wondered how such people could deliver dividends of democracy to their people.

The Governor who was visibly angry stated that the ANPP would not lose anything even if such people leave the party and join other political parties, because it would be a relief rather than a loss.

Speculations are rife that the Member House of Representatives, Representing Maiduguri Metropolitan Council (MMC), Mustapha Baba Shehu who was the Campaign Coordinator of the Buhari Campaign Organization (BCO) in Borno during the 2007 general elections may follow General Buhari to his new political party.

Sheriff inspected the newly constructed Boarding primary school which has reached 60% completion; he also commissioned 20 shopping complex, 10 housing estate, electrification project at Towari and Solar boreholes and water pump in Konduga town, as well as distributed poverty alleviation materials to the people of the council.
