Former Vice Presidential candidate, Peter Obi has bemoaned the current state of Nigeria which leaves much to be desired.
Obi made the disclosure while he addressed the crowd at St. Joseph Catholic Church, during the burial of Prof. Linus Ilika, who was the Commissioner for Health during his tenure.
He said: “The present condition of Nigeria requires all hands to be on deck. When I see the waste that still goes on among individuals as well as government officials, one is prompted to believe that we are yet to realize the depth of the rot, ranging from security challenges, dwindling economy and lack of due attention to education”,
“ We came into government without a single accredited health institution but with the commitment of people like Ilika, we ended up with over 12 accredited health institutions. It was during his tenure that we revived the grant-in-aid to hospitals in the state. ”
In related news, spokesperson of the police command in Enugu State, Daniel Ndukwe, issued a statement about a recent attack on a police station.
Part of the statement read: “Commissioner of Police, Enugu State Command, CP Mohammed Ndatsu Aliyu, has ordered the immediate deployment of the Command’s operational and intelligence assets to identify and apprehend the yet to be identified gunmen, who without warrant and provocation, violently attacked and set ablaze Adani Police Station today, 21st April, 2021 at about 2.30am. He gave this order during a prompt on-the-spot assessment visit of the station, alongside heads of sister security agencies in the state.
“Meanwhile, the unknown assailants, who attacked the station in their numbers, were resisted by Police operatives on duty and in the ensuing gun duel, some of the gunmen escaped with gunshot injuries. Unfortunately, two (2) of the Policemen were critically wounded and later confirmed dead in the hospital.
