  • Goddy Etta took a bow without a question?; it is quite unfortunate and a missed opportunity, the so called Assembly members never asked Mr. Goddy about leadership credibility of his tenure as the chairman of Yakurr L.G.A. 13 years ago, I remember I was 18 years old, when Mr. Goddy created chaos, uproar, damage and human destruction because he refused to pay civil servant salary for 7 months, instead he went ahead purchasing fire arm and machetes for him self and the vigilante group he formed to protect him self; I remember I saw him clothed in white lace as he fired boolets at rioters from the 2 pistols he was holding saying in my dialect, “come and kill goddy”, whilst he escapes to Calabar then to London with his family. Please people ask Mr. Goddy Etta the where about of =N=16.5million, the then salary of over a thousand, Yakurr L.G.A. workers, for 7 months which is, =N=115,500,000. before he becomes the commissioner; it is very saddening Assembly members didn’t ask any question!
