Shock and confusion as politician commissions traffic light with red carpet ceremony

The wonder and confusion surrounding African politicians are not going away anytime soon because as YEN.com.gh learnt, one politician in Nigeria commissioned a traffic light for his people with red carpet ceremony.

His Excellency, Elder Prof Ivara Esu, the deputy governor of Cross River State in Nigeria, was a man who could not do things simply at a commissioning of a traffic light because not only did the occasion become an elaborate ceremony, the red carpet was also rolled out.

According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Celebritiesbuzz.com.gh the commissioning of the solar-powered traffic light was accompanied by pomp and pageantry.

Indeed, one may be forgiven if they see photos of the ceremony and delve right into the age-old African problem of politicians using taxpayer's money with careless abandon.

Meanwhile, In the Punjab region of India, the Lok Sabha elections were held in late May of 2019 and one man made the headlines for crying because of the nine eligible members of his family who could vote, only five voted for him.

Neetu Shuttern Wala polled 856 of the valid votes cast but that was not enough.

Any well-meaning person may be sad for losing an election but Wala was extra-crushed by the fact that not all of his family believed in him.

His own family members "betrayed" him and did not all vote for him.
