I love the idea of gifting to anyone, especially when the “have not are being surprising generous to the haves” it is a nice gesture especially in the African culture.

These pictures depict the  2,000 bags of Ebonyi rice and 2,000 tubers of Ebonyi yam that were presented to President Muhammadu Buhari by the Government and people of Ebonyi state during his official visit on Nov. 14. 2017

But when Ebonyi state, a state known for it deficiency in basic amenities, serious case of starvation, heightened poverty which is very evident, and even lack of  government caressing hands of revenue allocation, showing no signs of care.

I can present to you endless list of people living in this same country, who would have survived on a tuber, or 15kg of rice which is not up to any bag sitting there.

What made them think that the President will feed on Ebonyi  rice and yam? What if had his rice imported into the Country? How about we find out what happened to this gifts.

Was it sent to his in-laws and relatives in the North, or shared to people who already have too much money, that they can buy themselves 2000 bags of rices and a whole barn.

People (The have nots),  have formed the habit of taking every thing they have, that can keep them alive to gift to the the haves.

All in the name of looking for attention. I schooled in the east, so I can single handedly tell you that I have seen Ebonyi people living in abject poverty  in a foreign Anambra land. They never feed fine because there isn’t enough money to make ends meet, they have more kids than the wealthy.

In as much as we love the President a lot, I am of the opinion that these gifts would go a long way in helping the people of Ebonyi even if for a week.

Let’s all Help the poor, leave the rich alone, they are getting richer.
