The Enugu state chapter of the Labour Party has launched a scathing attack on Governor Peter Mbah for his distribution of bags of rice across the 17 local government areas of the state, labeling it a mockery of governance.


In a statement jointly signed by Barr. Casmire Agbo, the state chairman of the party, and Barr. Titus Odoh, the state publicity secretary, the party expressed outrage at the use of taxpayers’ money to print the governor’s name and picture on the rice bags.

The party questioned the priorities of the governor, suggesting that instead of engaging in token gestures, he should focus on providing essential infrastructure to improve the lives of the people.


The statement reads;

“The leadership of Labour Party, Enugu State Chapter has observed with absolute disgust the on-going distribution of 10kg bags of rice to ndi Enugu in the name of palliative.

“The annoying thing therein is not just the sharing of the rice but the very fact that Governor Mba spent tax payers` money printing his name and picture on the bags of rice. What a shame !What does he want to achieve with that?”

“When did governance become rocket science? Why can’t Mba provide infrastructure that will better the lots of the people?
If the Pdp-led government does the right thing, the citizens can conveniently enter the market and buy food products of their choice instead of sharing beggarly 10kg bags of rice to party loyalists.”

“If I may ask; how far will the bags go? How many households will get it at the end of the day? You would later realize that the bags of rice will end up in the hands of politicians.”

“In this critical stage in our national life, the way to go is to institute purposeful governance and set the stage for meaningful, impactful and sustainable development and not dissipating energies and wasting time on frivolities.”

“We want to advise that the pdp-led government should not turn our people into helpless beggars.”

The Party also criticized the distribution process, expressing skepticism about the reach of the rice bags and raising concerns that they would ultimately end up in the hands of political cronies.

“What’s the essence of sharing rice to your subjects after suffocating them with excessive taxations and indiscriminate levies?”

The party further warned that the people of the state have had enough of the political theatrics, noting it’s time for real leadership.

“As it stands, we do not have much other than to say that enough is enough.” The statement added.

Daily Gazette recall that Governor Mbah had on Thursday flagged-off the distribution of palliatives meant for indigent people across the 260 electoral wards of the state in order to cushion the effects of hardship ravaging the country.


Mbah noted that the exercise is a combined effort of the federal and state government, assuring that his administration has robust programmes in place to eliminate poverty.
