I write to commend the Chairman of Ughelli North LGA, Hon. (Chief) Godwin Adode JP Tête a.k.a Coach Tête for setting up COVID-19 task force team to monitor the level of masses compliance on government directives and enforce compliance by citizens as it affects COVID-19 issues in the LGA.
I wholeheartedly, appreciate him for doing the needful by setting up COVID-19 task force.
This is what a democratic society should be and not the previous case where he arrogated all powers to himself as shown in the destruction of people’s ware at Otovwodo and Central markets as shamefully shown in the social media some weeks back.
I commend him for listening to our voice when we condemned the act and setting up COVID-19 task force as recommend by many of us.
This singular act has shown that the council boss is listening to the masses and we call for a continuation of this.
I wish to congratulate the newly set up task force chairman and its members. They must see this as an opportunity; a rare one at that to serve their people at this trying time of our existence. They must serve well without fear or favour.
The powers of this office must be used for the purpose for which it was given; create awareness, monitor level of compliance and at most punish offenders.
Abuse of these powers given through this office for selfish, personal and Political interests would undoubtedly, meet high condemnation and resistance from the people.
I wish to humbly plead that creation of awareness on this pandemic should be a top priority of the task force while carrying out order their duties.
I therefore, humbly say to them, let love led while the you discharge your duties which I can forsee would he very tedious and challenging.
Finally, I wish to commend once more, the council boss for doing the needful.
Comrade Ibebe Rufus Akpobome
ADC Chairman Ughelli North LGA
