Dr Joe Abah ‏(@DrJoeAbah) and His Faulty Made-in-Nigeria Innoson Jeep @innosonmotors.

The Director-General of Bureau of Public Service Reforms (BPSR), Dr. Joe Abah is a senior Nigerian public servant like any that you may ever encounter on social media. His following on twitter increases every week because of his fresh approach to relating with Nigerians. He speaks the lingo of those affected by the 140 character restriction as well as those who have the ability of a monopoly champion.

As a public servant who garnered his public service experience from the United Kingdom in the corridors of power of former Prime Minister Tony Blair, his reforms initiatives in the BPSR agency aren’t going unnoticed. What I particularly admire about Joe Abah is his determination to leave his mark. He calls to question on his social media platform government policies he does not believe in.  He cringed like every other Nigerian when Sports Minister Solomon Dalung queried the necessity for athletes to spend a lot of time in training.

When the made-in-Nigeria jeep Innoson was made available, as the DG of BPSR agency, he was one of the first senior public servants to have one as an official vehicle.

The official BPSR blog celebrated Innoson with splashes of photographs of the Innoson jeep on its blog. Joe Abah takes to twitter at  six-monthly intervals to give a commentary on the progress of his proud made-in-Nigeria jeep.

His latest update, however, caused an uproar, as can be seen below :”Sadly, after 2 & half years, the jeep has started giving wahala. Overheating last week. Now gearbox.”

Dr. Abah went further to explain his actions in a series of tweets posted below.  the long and short of my post is to commend a public servant who acts and feels the pulse of fellow Nigerians. He has shown that senior officers, Politicians, Ministers, Governors and the President can afford to be real.
