Nigeria: Councillor questions Boss on N1.8billion
By Shaibu Stephen Ojate

Salami Omuya Usman (1)Hon. Salami Omuya Usman, the Councillor representing Oboroke-Eba Ward has called on the people of Okehi Local Government to investigate the activities of the council boss before it is too late. 


Hon. Salami made this remark while talking to www.eaglereporters.com in Okene today. He said, two months running now, the councillors have not been paid their full salaries and wonder what the Chairman has been doing with the allocation to the council.
‘As I am speaking to you, the Chairman, Hon Hassan is riding on limousine Car, One Jeep and Honda Car. He receives N2million as security votes, N750,000 impress every month. All these, he takes them first charge from the allocation. Sad to note he never deemed it fit to pay councillors’ salaries for the past two months. He left us and workers to die in hunger. We don’t really know what he is doing with local government allocation’, Hon. Omuya said.
Hon. Omuya has refuted Chairman’s remark that the present administration has not been getting fair allocation from federal government unlike previous government. He added that last year, the sum amount of N1.8billions was approved by the legislative body and at the end of 2013, nothing to show for all the money expended.
‘In 2013, he claimed to have constructed roads, built farm centre, dug borehole, built health centre, all in oboroke. I am one of the councillors in that area; there are no such projects there. We asked him to show us where the projects are and up till now, he could not point to any. It will interest you to note that he claimed to have spent another N300million late last year, he should be asked to show where the projects are in any part of Okehi Local government, he said.
Hon. Usman noted that the council Boss has been deceiving members of the public on the allocation to the local government. He urged the public to demand explanation from the Chairman on what he made do with the little he received. If he can’t pay salaries to workers, councillors and execute single project, what are we saying? He remarked
Buttressing further, he said instead of the Chairman to make amend in his doing, he is always fond of accusing people for destroying his administration.
On local government sacked workers, he noted that when Hon. Hassan took over the mantle of leadership as Liason officer 1, he owed two month salaries. He complained that the staff strength of the council was over bloated and demands downsizing of work force.
Over 400 staff employed by his predecessor was dismissed. When he did this, we taught the council would be stable enough in term of fund. Right now, the remaining workers were not fully paid as at when due and 7months salaries owed workers, Hon Usman said.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
