King Odum Preaches Accountability, Selflessness

As Nigerians gears up for another Democracy Day celebration on June 12, 2022, the Paramount Ruler of Oginigba Kingdom, King G.B. Odum JP, has stressed the need for gratitude to God for decades of uninterrupted democracy in the country.

The monarch, who spoke to journalists at his palace in Port Harcourt, Saturday, expressed delight that while many countries with heightened insecurity like Nigeria have plunged into war, the country has miraculously managed her differences for 23 years since the inception of democracy in the country.

King Odum advised all Nigerians to avoid bribery and ensure they elect credible leaders come 2023 general election, to correct the mistakes of the past, particularly eradicating the incessant insecurity ravaging the country, stressing that Nigeria is in dear need of patriotic statesmen as leaders.

He added that President Mohammad Buhari has done his bit in ensuring that Nigeria is united without the outbreak of war, calling it a big plus to his administration.

According to him, “There is therefore, need for us to support him to elect a successor that will build on the legacies and aspirations that will make Nigeria great again”.

King Odum also scored the Governor Nyesom Wike very high as he marks seven years in office, considering his policies on infrastructural development across the 23 LAGs of Rivers State, urging all hands to be on deck to elect a credible successor that would continue from where the governor stopped as he rounds off his tenure next year.

The royal father appealed to Rivers people and Nigeria at large to ensure that the 2023 general election is taken seriously, noting that it can be achieved if all adults come out to vote the right leaders that will reform the country.

“The hardship in the country should make all electorates to be wise and avoid any form of corruption that can truncate the emergence of authentic leaders that can turn the table round for Nigeria to become a more civilized country for the benefits of the masses.

“The effort of our heroes past should not be allowed to be in vein. They have fought hard to ensure Nigeria remain one and great. Thus, earning the “Giant of Africa” status. The onus now lies on us to continue in that direction until we bring the country back to where is used to be in Africa”, he said.
