AKWA IBOM, Nigeria – A former Senator from Akwa Ibom State, Senator Anietie Okon, has expressed disappointment at the sack of the Director-General of the Security and Exchange Commission, SEC. Mrs. Mary Uduk, by President Mohhamadu Buhari.
He said such an act by the President was a way of laying tracks of disintegration in Nigeria.
According to DAILY POST, Okon said people cannot continue to be blind to the issues that have held the country together.
He lamented that the President was not carrying all sections of the country along in the distribution of political appointments in the country.
His words, “the federal government is not doing well. Today I am very angry because a daughter of this state that has served this country as a DG of the Security and Exchange Commission has been sacked.
” I just called our members in the Senate from Akwa Ibom State to rally together and they said they are miffed by the conduct of the man at the helm of affairs. Only God knows what agenda he is pursuing.
‘Look at the Nigeria Infrastructures and establishments, where do you find the Southerners? From the various commands of the Armed Forces-1st to the 3rd level of command is occupied by other people.
“We will say our minds at the National Assembly but what I do know is that Buhari is laying tracks for the disintegration of the country, whether we like to accept this or not we cannot continue to be blind to the issues that have held us together.”
He also expressed disappointment over the decision by the federal government to feed school children at home describing it as an act of corruption.
“This regime is so corrupt that it cannot purge itself of corruption. How would you explain that so much money has been given out for school feeding when there are no schools going on because of the pandemic.
“This regime has become so impuneous that it is feeding school children glaringly out of fraud” he added.
