AS President Goodluck Jonathan savoured the euphoria of inauguration of his four-year mandate, some professionals under the aegis of the Niger Delta International Initiative (NDII), on Sunday, warned him to beware of some politicians, who had allegedly siphoned 60 per cent of the nation’s wealth to foreign countries.
They also cautioned him to be wary of the activities of sycophants, who consistently undermined the authorities of successive administrations in the country, just as they urged the president to check the alleged fleecing of local councils by most state governors.
In a letter dated May 27, 2011, tagged: “Reminder to President Goodluck Jonathan on his inauguration” and signed by NDII President, Dr Chukwuma O. Nwaonicha, on behalf of his colleagues, they asked him to either dissolve the existing anti-graft agencies or overhaul their machinery towards better performance.
Part of their agenda for the president was that he should immediately initiate National Public Works Programme (NPWP) or Jonathan’s Project (JP) with the sole responsibility of executing special policies capable of empowering members of the public by creating jobs for majority of the citizens of the country.
