Governor Idris Wada: lucky survivor


Governor of Nigeria’s central state of Kogi, Idris Wada, has been reportedly injured in a fatal auto crash Friday, after his vehicle somersaulted severally.

Wada’s ADC, ASP Idris Mohammed, died in the crash, but the governor escaped with serious injuries.

The governor’s car had a burst tyre while returning from Anyigba where he had attended the Igala Education conference.The accident occurred at Emi-Woro village around 2 pm.

According to an eye-witness, the governor’s Lexus jeep veered off the road before somersaulting.

Wada was said to have been brought out of the vehicle unconscious with his orderly and driver.

The Commissioner for Information, Mr Yabagi Bologi, confirmed the incident to NAN in a telephone interview.

Wada is now reportedly being treated in the intensive care unit of the Specialist hospital in Lokoja, the state capital.

The year 2012 may qualify as a horrible year for Nigeria’s privileged governors, with the tragic death of the former governor of Kaduna, Ibrahim Yakowa.

The Governor of Taraba state, is under intense care in Germany after a crash in a small plane in the neighbouring Adamawa state.

Governor of Enugu state, Sullivan Chime is also undergoing intensive care in a hospital in India. He has been away from work since September.

    Love your land and your people back. Fix the infrastructures for the masses that employed you as their leader. Serve your people with the kind of love you have for yourself and your children. People employed you to serve them, not for them to serve you. This applies to the military, police and other security personnel, you are not animals in uniform, stop behaving like rabid animals.
    Return stolen loot and create jobs for all. Nobody is asking for handouts, just a chance to survive through hard work from the jobs you have created, the infrastructures you have repaired and others you have made available.

  2. Why am I not surprise…. Do the roads in Nigeria belong to human beings? It is a shame that you find humans on these death traps. Yet, our leaders have been to US/EU & China or Dubai……. No pity for folks with heads without brain – who should be ready day one with agenda to fix infrastructures there by creating jobs. Shame on us!!!

    I have no tear to shed for any of these Politicians, I will save my tears for the oppressed, for the Boko Haram and Kidnapped victims. I will save my pain for the Pensioners dying of hunger and the accident victims on the bad roads. Yoruba will say Seka Seka a fi pupo se ara e (a wicked person stands to harvest the greater portion of his wickedness). Nigerian politicians are reprobate souls who are incapable of repentance and as mean as this may sound, they deserve no mercy because they are wicked and merciless crop of criminals. It was just last week that this same Governor convoy going at high speed killed a poor soul and you would have thought that would be a ear pulling warning for him but no. No Governor deserves blasting of Siren and speeding like a demon possessed spirit than Fashola of Lagos State considering the madness of Lagos Roads but you will never see him in unnecessarily long convoy or blaring siren. According to Fashola in one of the interviews, he said it is very unfair for a taxpayer to pay for a chauffeur driven air conditioned car for a government official and same would be oppressing and chasing the taxpayer (who might be in a jalopy, weather beaten, stuffy vehicle) off the road. Nigerian politician can simply not learn and their pride, ego, selfishness and greed will always lead to their downfall. How long would it take them to know that the God of the poor, fatherless, widow and widowers have arisen to fight for his own? If these Politician are capable of learning, aren’t they supposed to have learnt from, Chime, Imoke, Suntai, Yakowa, Azazi etc? I know that even if 99% of them died today, the remaining 1% would still not change because they have sold their souls to the Devil.

    I only sympathize with ADC; God almighty shall grant the family the fortitude to bear the lost. For the governor, this is a warning for you not to join the bandwagon of other politician. God give you a second chance to live, and if you refuse to the right thing for the people that elected you, the way that seem right to a man, the end is a destruction. God revolution just started to fall upon Nigeria evil politician, and all of them shall consume with wrath of God!!!!
