Senator Ita Enang, SSA on Niger Delta Affairs to the President.

ABUJA – The Senior Special Assistant on Niger Delta Affairs to the President, Senator Ita Enang, has said that with the seriousness the fight against corruption has received under President Muhammadu Buhari administration, people who are public officers today may be potential prisoners.

Enang who stated this to underscore the need for public officers to be accountable to the people whom they serve, said no act of misdemeanor against the people or nation may go unpunished.

He said Nigerians should frown seriously at financial recklessness by people in government.

“Those occupying public offices should know that they are the servants to the people they are serving, not their masters”.

“No person is bigger than the law; you have seen the conviction of the unexpected. People who are in power today should know that they may be potential prisoners tomorrow for any act of commission or omission they do today”, he added.

While answering questions from journalists in Abuja in the new year eve on the performance of the Buhari’s administration, Enang lauded the President for successfully dousing the tension and fears created by violent conflicts between herders and farmers in the middle belt and the IPOB crisis in the South-East.

He said with peace currently enjoyed in the middle belt and the South-East, key projects earmarked by the federal government for the areas will succeed.

“We need to applaud the President for successfully managing the conflict between herdsmen and the farmers. We should also commend him for curtailing the uprising fueled by the agitations of the Independent People of Biafra, IPOB”.

Ita Enang also lauded President Buhari for the positive synergy between the executive and national assembly which he noted led to the quick passage of the 2020 appropriations bill as well as the consideration and passage of the medium term expenditure framework.
