Alaibe blasts PDP over Bayelsa sanitation row

A stalwart of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and one of the leading contenders for the party’s governorship ticket, Chief Timi Alaibe, on Saturday lashed out the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for linking him to a clash in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
Alaibe said he was not even in Bayelsa when the Chairman of the state Environmental Sanitation Authority (BSESA), Mr. Oboku Offorji, claimed that he and other leaders of the APC flouted the sanitation law.
He said it was obvious that the PDP and its remnants were scared of his membership of the APC, a party he said has come to deliver the state from bad governance.

Alaibe, the former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), said the PDP was scared of losing Bayelsa.
He said the PDP is aware of its looming defeat and that its members have resorted to rabble rousing to seek relevance.
He said, “I have not been in the state for some days now. But they dropped my name. The report that I violated traffic law is a figment of their imagination. They are scared of me. They are feverish and jittery. I have become their headache and that is why they have been leading smear campaign against me.
“But I have a message for PDP. We have come to take Bayelsa from them. There is no going back for APC. The PDP will surely go in December 5 because we are totally committed to ensuring the victory of APC.”

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
