How Is Your State Governor Doing?

take a look at your state and tell us how you rate your state governor with reasons if you have any, you can do your assessment based on your own chosen parameters.

i am from kogi state and i will rate my governor, 16% because there nothing going on in the state that point to any clear intention to put the state on track,my governor is rather answering the title and enjoying the office, to the best of my knowledge,the state capital has bearly improved on what lord lugard did there ,the indigence are not feeling nothing,the student nothing, as per bursary.a bunch of a kind they all seem to think alike, the exco,i know the potentials of that state and nothing at the moment is pointing to taping it out. am sorry, my governor is just there.

my governor, hmmm, Akwa Ibom state gov, hmmm

all my gov knows how to do is talk, and try his best to disparage his predecessor,

his high point is the latest order that no commercial okada ater 6.30 pm, creating hardship or his citizens in a state with no other means of transportation apart frm okada.( no buses, no town drop, or any thing of d sort, people r just suffering,

he compares his state to cross river and rivers with established means o public trans, its really sad

Guys, most of you re not tellin us your state.

I presume most Nigerians know the infamous Orji Uzor kalu of 1999-2007?, he not only looted my state he imposed his prototype( but with a much lesser reasoning ability) to lord over my state.  you people talk of development, that is as alien as it sounds. In Abia state WE ARE SERIOUSLY IN THE DARK(it appears that the light God created on the first day didnt reach here).

Governor T.A Orji should perform but for the benighted cult headed by the Queen mother herself - Madam Eunice Orji

plz help us pray that God would send His light before we be runned down by darkness!!

Congratulations to all those from states where their Governors are performing

Don't wanna burst no bubble but remember that cosmetic changes like painting the town and cleaning the streets are merely what they are at face value cosmetic changes.

We also want to see real development, hospitals that work, schools that produce results, employment and sustainable development etc

Lets also hope they do not have too many God Fathers to pay off as well

Best Wishes

Ok where I am now, the governor is owing some percentages he is yet to attain 0%. He has just been invited by the EFCC for embezzlement already.

He is renovating his country home and has given legislators Jeeps to drive in. The only thing he's done is operation No Pot Holes! What the Bleep is that for a state that gets N11bn monthly allocation?

so far I think His Exc. Gabriel Suswam has done a great job this is because

1 He made those who sit there to share the state and local govt. allocation run away and never come to him.

2 Awarded roads, school of medicine, tomato industry, constructing a Water Dam

He is just 75 % on the way to make Benue the infrastructure development state

Murtala Nyako has done a good job so far in Adamawa State.

Workers are now Happy.

There Salaries have increase and all outstanding allowances paid.

People are given employment in the state.

Also , massive road construction all around the state capital.

I believe in him , he has a good vision for the state.

I give him 60%.

Can the people from Edo state tell me what our state governor is doing?

Because the last time I was home the previous governor was dredging Ikpoba river with 500,000 naira. By the way, did he actually complete the project? Probably Edo people are too scared to speak out.

Well,

The ideals of governance are not based on sentiments, but on what you see as veritable proof of progress in your community.

I am from Ogun State, and I can say that the Governor is building up to a new climax this second term.

First of all, I did not vote for him, but only a fool will see what is happening in his vicinity and say its not there.

I go to Abeokuta every weekend, so I've seen developments gathering momentum. The latest I just discovered was that there is about to be an ICT revolution, as we have started assembling our own computers (GICT Computers). This is the beginning, and I hope to be there when it all flourishes.

So I will score him 65% (The percentage level is low because the major road to my area is blocked for dualisation, and I have to go around and round the long way!!! )

So someone who knows please prove me wrong.

The last time i asked i was told i had one Ubah as a governor

Our national dailies tells me my Governor's surname is Obi

Plz Andy Uba and Chris Uba, are they different people?

If Yes, then which of them is my present governor? or is there anybody like Etiaba?

Infact the politics in my state is so dynamic that u can't be very sure until 10:00pm daily after network news.

I need to know my governor before talking about performance

The truth is that we don't have a governor.

Every reasonable person will agree with me that the man at the helm of affairs is no governor. Aoeva, don't ask me as i don't know the title we can give to AKALA who is placed at the governor's house and office.

Delta State Governor- Emmanuel Uduaghan I think is doing pretty good. I think he is acting speedily and Warri is changing pretty fast.Everywhere is been lighted up with generator powered street lights and security has improved. I will score him 65%. I hope to see much more from him though.

I agree. In the past I have heard people say things are doing ok just cause they heard or read of the news in some newspaper or saw a few construction workers on a site or two. Years later, we find out that all we heard of were of projects in the pipeline which were advertised as if they were actually being worked on. We all get excited and start believing things are getting better, then couple of months or years later, we find it was just another false alarm.

I would Rate Jonah Jang 60% he is working hard to undo the damage done by Dariye. He seems committed especially to construction and repair of our horrible roads, crime reduction and prompt payment of slaries , reduction of ghost workers.

My only problem with him is that even though i dont live in plateau, I had a headache when i went there for one weekend, he talks too much. He went on and on for almost an hour on a radio show

Gov Fashola of lagos state should rate 60-65% with his performance till date see the massive road renovations and other developmental project going on in the state.

Knock still come from the traffic jams cause by these construction BRT lanes and the Lekki dualisation are causing nightmares for commuters.

But i still have faith in him Eko o ni baje.

@Femonjay,

I'm 100% against the fees of N150,00 to N350,000K per session. It was Mdsocks who said the fees are good not me.

@ mdsocks;

This particular thread 'How is your Governor doing' requires facts, pure and simple. Not 'ideas' as you suggest in your post.

It is a well known and easily verifiable fact that there is no water supply in half of Osogbo. In my area of Aiyetoro, not a drop of water in almost two years. Even when you go to the state secretariat many staff come to the office with Jerry cans which is later used to collect water. The wealthy in many parts of Osogbo sink boreholes while the less wealthy settle for wells.

You say the university fees of N150K to N350K per session are justified. Of course, you are entitled to your opinion. Considering that Osun state is one of the poorest states (allocation wise) in Nigeria, I beg to differ. More so, when you consider that the University doesn’t have all its infrastructure and buildings in place. These fees are strictly for tuition…no registration fess, accommodation etc.

According to your last thread, two of the Local Govts would foot the bill for land compensation. If your info is correct, it means an additional cost for the local govts to bear in addition to the 5% which the governor would deduct from their allocation.

Oyinlola is simply inept and lacks vision. On at least two occasions last year, doctors in Osun state had to go on strike to protest the poor conditions of service and appalling facilities. At one stage, this joker of a governor stated that he had sacked the striking doctors. He later backed down when the folly of his decision stared him in the face.

Lately, the state govt has been airing a programme on AIT highlighting its bogus achievements. What a waste of funds? If the governor Oyinlola feels he has achieved anything why not the state radio and TV station to publicise them?

My state governor, Oyinlola of Osun State is completely clueless.

No water supply to half of the capital, major roads dug up for dualisation for the past 5 years with no further progress, pensioners unpaid for 65 months, all public infrastructure branded whith his slogan 'Oyin ni o' (which translates to 'it is honey') coined from his surname.

As if all of the above is not lamentable enough; he has opened a State University with satelite campuses, most of which haven't been completed. However, the first academic sesssion has started. The fees are astronomical at N150, 000 to N350,000 per academic session depending on the course you study etc. He also deducts 5% from every local govt allocation as their contribution towards the university. He has stated that he will not compensate people whose land was taken for establishment of the institution.

This is the same guy that was a complete disaster as Military Governor of Lagos state. He had no parliament to contend with and absolute political power as a military governor in one of the richest states in Nigeria but was unable to perform. No wonder his ineptitude is being replicated in Osun State.
