A community peace ambassador in Delta State, Amb. Smart Okosu, chairman Ijaw Youth Council, IYC Ogbe-Ijoh Warri Kingdom has carpeted the Warri South West Council Chairman, Hon. Taiye Tuoyo over alleged ineffective performance in government.
The youth leader in Ogbe-Ijoh Kingdom made the call earlier today in Warri via a statement issued to newsmen, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspaper.
Amb. Okosu had particularly described the leadership of Hon. Tuoyo as worrisome, stressing that the council chairman has reduced the Local Government to the lowest level.
However, speaking further, Smart had lampooned Tuoyo of not doing sanitation in the Local Government headquarters since he became chairman of the council, adding that the first class Warri South West Secretariat built by the former chairman of the council, Hon. George Ekpemupolo has been reduced to a dustbin as snakes, reptiles and other deadly creatures now freely roam about in the secretariat.
The IYC chairman had also revealed that the council chairman since assumption into office is not operating the council affairs from the Ogbe-Ijoh, headquarters of the Local Government Area.
He had described the leadership pattern of the council boss as fearful and worrisome, adding that he has never been responsible for anything that concerns Ogbe-Ijoh as he does not even maintain the streets lights in the community which was the function of the council evident in previous administrations.
Comr. Okosu had also stated that the chairman has lost touch with the youths of Ogbe-Ijoh, alleging that there is no sense of belonging for the youths of the community since he assumes office.
The statement had challenged Tuoyo to emulate the good leadership virtues of his predecessor, Hon. George Ekpemupolo.
Meanwhile, when The Liberator Newspaper contacted Hon. Taiye Tuoyo, Chairman Warri South West in order to hear his own side of the story, his calls where answered by his aide who did not disclose his name, but noted that the chairman is busy and will reach our reporter later.
Nevertheless, hours later, at the moment of filling this report, he had not called nor responded through text or any other medium.
