Blog / Political nonsensical statements

For an elected governor to say that good judgment is not a popularity contest in a democracy, one wonders what the person is talking about. Political institutions are supposed to make the running of a state possible. But a government that does exist in isolation. People should be able to see tangible change that does not take the little they make because of obnoxious policies.
Budgets have always been prepared and passed from time to time, does it mean that road construction that were budgeted for in the past and remains in deplorable state should not be probed. What is the essence of earmarking huge sums of money for the same road over and over again? It is wrong for a policy to be introduced that ends of devaluing the local currency, this is what the current policy of removal of the fuel subsidy does to the nation. The five naira does not seem to have any economic value at this point in time because of this policy.
Someone needs to think about other means of making money for the government. I am particularly disappointed in the National Assembly for not questioning the rationale that would make the executive spend more than what was budgeted for without recourse to them for appropriate amendments. This is what happens when you don't have the right people in the right placed. Enough ought to be enough!
