Former Delta State Commissioner for Culture and Toursim, Richard Mofe Damijo, popularly called RMD, said since he left government, people have been hurling insults at him.

 

The actor said his attackers had no knowledge of inner workings of government.

“If you are friendly with people like Opa William, Zeb Ejiro and all that, they will tell you. In fact, since I left government, do you know the abuses that I got? That RMD went to government and did nothing?

“… Everybody can be a lay critic of those in government. See, if you have never been in government you cannot understand it. From outside, people see it differently. It’s like you being the arts editor and your editor keeps giving you only what you should publish no matter what you bring in. That is how government is for me. You can have a budget of N10.00 allocated for the year and they probably give you 1 kobo to work with. You can operate zero budgeting for four or five years. Have you ever heard of zero budgeting,” RMD told The Guardian.

The actor went on to tell the paper of how due to the exigencies of that moment he became the official event planner of the government.

His word, “I ended up being the official Government Event Planner; that was what I became because I needed to function and that was what I started functioning as. Every major conference that happened in Asaba or in Delta State, I planned for it.”
