A Painful End for Imo State?
23 July 2011

Death by a thousand razor cuts does not even begin to describe the fate of Imo State given the demonstrated path the current administration has taken the past month.  That the recent appointments by the current governor included 100 senior special assistants, special assistants and committee members is so deranged, it is not even hysterical.  Where in the world would a small state or a nation, appoint so many advisors?  How is this possible in light of the declared limited resources at the disposal of the state?  For the sake of argument, let us assume that the government is not intending to pay these people.  Where will the governor truly find the time in a 1 year calendar to have meaningful and productive dialog with all 100 people, not including the commissioners who are his true advisors given the structure of government in Nigeria?
