[ Masterweb Reports: Emeka Odionu reports ] - On the platform at The Covenant Place, Iganmu Lagos; the former governor of Anambra state, as one of the invited guests spoke on a number of issues which are trending in the media. It was not an interactive session, so there was no opportunity to ask him questions hence the uninformed in Anambra politics “ga ekwe nke Pita kwulu”.
I’ve been getting calls and inbox messages from Nigerians at home and in diaspora as regards Obi’s speech on the “platform” and I’ve done my best to explain to them “as onye no mgbe ife melu the true situation of things” but on a second thought decided to explain certain things online, not as a media aide to anybody but as “ezigbote onye Anambra”
1. Peter OBI told us that he kept N75b for his successor but he didn’t tell us that part of the money he claimed he kept was a N9b NIPP money given to Anambra state by Obasanjo in which Anambra state made no financial contributions neither did he tell us that Anambra states Equity shares of N750m from Emenite Roofing Industry (a Michael Okpalla investment) which was shared to all Eastern states in the early 90’s was part of his N75b
He also forgot to tell us that N1b agricultural loan given to farmers in Anambra state by the federal government is in his N75b handover note.
2. Peter Obi told us that he kept N75b for his successor but he did not tell us that he awarded a contract of N184b in his
last year in office, paid N78b and bequeathed a debt of N106b to his successor.
3. Peter Obi asked governors to scrap the office of First Lady to save cost but did not tell us that his wife operated the office of First Lady with all the paraphernalia. In what capacity did Magarete Obi tour 177 communities in Anambra state thrice? Was the office of First Lady built after Obi’s tenure?
4. Peter OBI told us that he kept N75b for his successor but did not tell us that he inherited N11.2b from his predecessor, Dr. Chris Ngige. He avoided telling us that the Federal Government roads in Anambra state constructed by Dr Ngige valued at about N30b was re-imbursed to him.
5. Peter OBI did not tell us that he killed the third tier of government in Anambra state by not conducting Local Government election for eight years he governed until two months to handover.
6. Peter Obi, speaking on “the platform” did not tell us that he employed more than 5000 civil servants two months to handover which he never did in his eight years rule.
7. Obi admonished incumbent governors to stop drinking champagne in government house to save cost but didn’t tell us that the day Gov Obiano won, bottles of champagne were brought out from government house and shared to jubilants.
8. Obi told us he never slept in a hotel where a room was N250,000 a night to save cost but he didn’t tell us how his aide was apprehended moving our security vote of N250m by road to Lagos.
9. Peter Obi admonished youths to go into politics to be influential and ask their leaders questions but the youths of his senatorial zone are being shortchanged and employment eludes them because of PDP’s lingering court case sponsored by Obi. Obi did not tell us that he was the one frustrating his senatorial zone from having a senator when he was speaking on “the platform”
10.On “the platform”, Obi spoke on “cutting cost of governance” but did not tell us if sharing N40b to his friends and cronies on what he termed “Final Push” two months to handover was one of the ways to save cost of governance.
Pastor Poju Oyemade is doing well on his programme called “The Platform” but he should to add to the programme an opportunity to ask questions to debunk hypocrisy.

[ Masterweb Reports: Marcus Okotete reports ] - There is no doubt that leadership is one of the fundamental problems we face in Nigeria as a nation. It is a problem that cuts across party divides; whether it's the APC or the PDP, leadership remains the
fulcrum that is missing in the country.
However, the popular language in the country today is economic recession, but the question everyone probably have refused to ask is how come we allowed ourselves to get in to the mess of recession in the first place? How come our so-called leaders, past and present did not see it coming and be prepared for it ahead of time? Why should the masses pay for the mistakes of their leaders? Is that what democracy
should mean for them?
As the National Coordinator of Leadership-Project Reloaded, we not only believe that leadership have to do with the democratic governance of Nigeria, but we also believe and view leadership as the essential ingredient that must be reckoned with in all endeavors of our national lives. For Instance, for a man and a woman to stay and live together in peace and harmony, the husband as the head of the family must show leadership. In the same token, leadership is not by style, but an act
that is predicated on sacrifice. In our country today, it is no longer news that 27 states of the 36 states of the federation are unable to pay workers salary which is the least of all the things expected from a leader and yet some of the so-called leaders at the state levels are busy spending tax payers money on frivolities.
How can Nigeria be great again when 70 percent of its population are unemployed? How can Nigeria be great again when pipelines are been vandalised on daily basis? How can Nigeria be great again when our tertiary institutions are breeding grounds for prostitution and brigandages instead of being the centre for innovation that will move the nation forward?
If the man who headed the Nigerian National Democratic Party, the first political party in Nigeria formed in 1923 by Herbert Macaulay is to come out from his grave, will be happy with the situation of Nigeria today? The answer is certainly no! Therefore, there is missing link some where.
In my view, I believe that for Nigeria to be great again, all those who wants to run for varrious elective positions in 2019 from the Presidential election through the Senatorial and Governorship elections to the Councillorship elections should start rethinking governance in their minds because the mind is the centre of all human
activities before it's being put in to practice.
As for me and my members in the Leadership Projected Reloaded, we will continue to mobilise Nigerians of all tribes, religion and orientation for the great task of producing better and quality leaders that will take Nigeria to her dream land of being the first among the equals. Though the challenge may not be easy but as a stakeholder in Nigerian politics who also believe that leadership is a sacrifice, I
and my group will do our best in this regard!
Based on the foregoing, I call on the Independent National Electoral Commission to start voters education now that politicians are busy planning for next elections. Starting voters revalidation and registration of Nigerians who have reached the age of 18 years now will also help them to improve our elections in 2019.
Finally, I call on the National Assembly to ensure adequate budgetary provisions for INEC in its 2017 appropriation for better preparations because failure to plan is planning to fail.

[ Masterweb Reports: Adelanwa Bamgboye reports ] - Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, (SERAP) has sent an open letter to Justice Mahmud Mohammed, Chief Justice of Nigeria in his capacity as the Chairman of the National Judicial Council (NJC) seeking explanations on what “he and the NJC knew or had reason to know regarding the report to them on 1st February, 2016 by Justice John Inyang Okoro, Justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria on the alleged visit by Mr Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transportation to the official residence of Justice Okoro to allegedly discuss election Appeals in respect of Rivers State, Akwa Ibom State and Abia State.”
The letter dated 21 October 2016 and signed by SERAP executive director, Adetokunbo Mumuni, states that, “We consider these allegations as constituting a serious threat to the independence, impartiality and accountability of the judiciary, and should in the ordinary course of duties, have prompted action from your Lordship and the NJC to wit: undertaking prompt, thorough and transparent investigations, and where there is prima-facie evidence of political interference in the judicial system, to report the matter to the appropriate anticorruption commissions and agencies for further investigation and possible prosecution.”
The letter reads in part: “SERAP strongly believes that the NJC has a responsibility to support judges in dealing with alleged corrupt inducements that are offered or the threats they receive, such as the allegations in this case.”
“In this respect, SERAP wishes to pose the following questions to your Lordship and the NJC: First, is it correct to suggest that Justice Okoro reported to you and the NJC on 1st February, 2016 his alleged meeting at his official residence with Mr Rotimi Amaechi? Was Justice Okoro’s report documented by your Lordship and the NJC? If so, Nigerians would like to hear from your Lordship and the NJC whether Justice Okoro’s report was ever discussed, and what action, if any, was taken by your Lordship and the NJC to respond to the allegations raised in his report?”
“Second, is it fair to suggest that your Lordship and the NJC knew, or had reason to know, that the alleged visit by Mr Amaechi to Justice Okoro’s official residence would constitute a case of political interference in the judicial system and a corruption offence under Nigerian laws and the UN Convention against Corruption to which Nigeria is a state party?”
“Third, after the alleged visit was brought to the attention of your Lordship and the NJC, did your Lordship and the NJC take any step to promptly and thoroughly investigate the matter further? Fourth, would your Lordship and the NJC agree that the alleged visit to Justice Okoro’s official residence to discuss election Appeals has seriously undermined the public trust and confidence in the judiciary, and the image of the judiciary as the last hope of the common man?”
“Fifth, is it correct to suggest that it is part of the inherent and implicit constitutional duties of the NJC to ensure that the judiciary as a whole does not lay itself open to the risk of political interference, manipulation and coercion to act in a certain way? Is it also correct to suggest that such duties require the NJC to promptly and thoroughly investigate allegations of political interference in the judicial system, that is, when those in political power allegedly use their influence to force or induce judges to act and rule according to their interests and not in accordance with the application of the law?”
“Sixth, would your Lordship and the NJC accept that the alleged visit by Mr Amaechi to the official residence of Justice Okoro to allegedly discuss election Appeals was motivated, facilitated and encouraged by the apparent failure by the NJC to ensure, as part of its inherent and implicit constitutional duties: (1) that system was in place to ensure prompt and thorough investigation of allegations of political interference in the judicial system and where there is prima facie evidence, to refer such allegations to appropriate anticorruption commissions and agencies for further investigation and possible prosecution, in strict accordance with the standards of national laws and international law including the UN Convention against Corruption; (2) that any such system was operating in a continuous and effective manner?”
“Seventh, would your Lordship and the NJC proceed to establish a system to ensure prompt and thorough investigation of allegations of political interference in the judicial system, and then ensure that through such system the alleged visit of Mr Amaechi to Justice Okoro’s official residence is promptly and thoroughly investigated by the NJC, and where there is prima facie evidence of political interference, that the matter is promptly referred to appropriate anticorruption commissions and agencies for further investigation and possible prosecution?”
“Nigerians are eagerly awaiting clarifications from your Lordship and the NJC on the issues raised above.”
“According to reports, Justice Okoro in his recent letter to your Lordship stated that he reported to you the alleged visit by Mr Amaechi to his official residence to allegedly discuss how to win election Appeals in respect of Rivers State, Akwa Ibom State and Abia State. Justice Okoro also said that he told your Lordship about the visit of Mr. Umana Umana to his residence to allegedly make the same request of assistance to win the appeal at the Supreme Court.”

[ Masterweb Reports: Andrew Essien reports ] - Throughout the eight years of Peter Obi as governor of Anambra State, Chief Ben Obi, also from Agulu, Anaocha local government area of the state and the former governor were close allies. Though Ben was special assistant to the governor on Inter Party Matters; a position assumed not to be so high compared to some other positions in the ex-governor’s cabinet, Ben wielded powers and was considered as one of the closest aides to the former governor. It was even common knowledge that both men knew themselves more than some other aides in the cabinet did.
But since after the former governor appeared on The Platform on Independence Day, where he delivered what was considered by a section of the populace as a populist speech on how governments and indeed the leadership can cut cost and check excesses, using his template when he was in office, not a few people, especially from Anambra State, who know the inner workings that have been going on between the former governor and his successor, Chief Willie Obiano, believe that he was not on The Platform to merely express what he thought was a panacea to the country’s teething problem of wastage in governance, but as an opportunity to get at the government of the day.
Consequently, the general belief is that most of his assertions on The Platform were directed at the government of Obiano, who political onlookers say he has had a frosty relationship with, since the present administration came into office.
Former governor, Peter Obi appeared on The Platform, which incidentally coincided with the 56th Independence Anniversary of Nigeria. The Platform, a forum initiated by Pastor Poju Oyemade of the Covenant Christian Centre, has now become an avenue for frank and honest discussions on matters affecting the motherland over the years and it was here that he spoke on the culture of wastefulness by Nigerian leaders, using his 8-year stewardship in Anambra as an example of how to curtail government expenditure. It was no doubt a speech that made several headlines weeks after that.
But no sooner than the conversation had finished that Chief Ben Obi, picked holes in Obi’s presentation, saying they were direct opposites of what the former governor did while serving. During his appearance at The Platform, Peter Obi received huge encomiums, understandably for his performance even as his message resonated within the populace, but no sooner than he had delivered his speech that those who worked closely with him during his stewardship in Anambra began accusing him of hypocrisy.
In a recent interview granted journalists, Ben Obi revealed some of the ways his former boss and brother ruled Anambra which was very different from what he told his audience at The Platform.
Peter Obi, during his appearance at The Platform, had exonerated himself from some of the wasteful spending indulged by most governors in their states, saying throughout his tenure as governor, he never used outriders, bulletproof SUVs, and ensured that he never had more than five cars in his convoy.
He had said that the government house is not a place where people come to make merry and party all night, but a place reserved for the governor to work and tend the state from. He condemned the intake of expensive alcoholic beverages like champagne in most government houses, and the use of private jets by governors all at the expense of the state. He said he flew economy class while he was governor, to save Anambra money but regretted that governors embarked on wasteful and expensive trips which has no bearing with the development of the state.
Ben obi said Chief Peter Obi’s reference to his banning of alcoholic beverages such as Champagne at the government house is laughable. Ben Obi pointed to the Squash Court located inside the government house renovated by the Peter Obi administration and said it was utilised by Peter Obi as a makeshift warehouse for alcoholic beverages such as the drinks his company distributes in Nigeria. He explained that Peter Obi was storing expensive alcoholic beverages purchased with state resources.
Ben Obi expressed worry why Peter Obi utilises every opportunity available to castigate his successor, Governor Willie Obiano who he said has even humbled himself and begged Obi for forgiveness for any offense, known and unknown sin. “Still Peter Obi goes around talking about the Anambra Governor with disdain. Dr Chris Ngige did not vilify him the way he is trying to do to Obiano. It is not fair. Peter Obi should be careful the way he opens his mouth because we can expose him to the public enough to put him behind bars. Obiano does not want to probe him, so he should shut up,” Ben Obi submitted.
Analysts aver that just as Obi still has a huge influence on the people of the state, Obiano is equally very much liked by the people because of his performance at a very short period. Mr Lawrence Nwangwuta, a commercial motorcyclist who though hails from Ebonyi State said, “I have been in Anambra for 10 years now, and I can tell you that Peter Obi did well in Anambra and Obiano is also following his footsteps.” Asked what he thinks of the feud between both men, he said, “Obi has done his work in Anambra, he should let Obiano also do his own. Obiano has even begged him to forgive him, so I think it will be bad for him not to forgive him, especially as people know him as a Christian here.”
The subject has therefore become a controversial issue in and around Anambra, and is discussed freely among citizens in the state. While most people affirmed to the former governor, a very humble personality, others believe that having had the chance to govern the state for eight years, he should move on and let his successor do it best for the state rather than attacking him. Some even point to other former governors in the country who have gone away quietly without interfering with the present governors’ administration as an example for Peter Obi to emulate.
Mr Bartholomew Ejike, a lecturer and a political enthusiast in the state said, “People just want to remain the only superstar in their locality, and I think that is why Obi is distracting Obiano. Anyone who watched Obi’s presentation at the platform will not be in doubt over who he was referring to. It was clear that Obiano is his target, and I think that was bad. No one is saying he should not go anywhere to present papers, but let him do his job without looking for a way to denigrate Anambra governor. He has served us to the best of his ability, and must let Obiano do so too. Except he fears that Obiano may surpass his achievement and become the next superstar in the state.”
Pundits agree that Peter Obi had performed creditably during his eight years in office but stressed his time has come and gone. They also added that he needs to leave the stage for the current governor to do his job as his insistence in interfering in Obiano’s administration lends credence to the rumour that even though he pretends to be otherwise, he personifies the old tradition of wanting to have his hands in the kitty. May be that is the issue or maybe not. But his body language is leading the public to think so”.
Meanwhile, it was gathered that following the failed reconciliation which was earlier brokered in Onitsha months ago, during the burial of Late Rev Fr Nicholas Tagbo, where Obiano had publicly begged Obi for forgiveness of whatever his sins may be, Catholic Bishops are making fresh efforts to reconcile Obi and Obiano once and for all. A source said the Bishops have been speaking with both Obi and Obiano separately, and are seriously working towards bringing both men into a room to lay bare their grouse. Until that is done, the gladiators and their aides will continue to throw darts at themselves at the expense of the state.
In the final analysis, the case in Anambra State now is a case of which of the “Obis” is telling the truth. Just as it is hoped that the leaders and others in the state will put their hands together to work for the common good of the people, the days and months ahead will be truly revealing even as the current governor showcases his achievements.

[ Masterweb Reports: Press Release For Immediate Release ] - Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council has started compiling the list of non-performing Igbo Governors and political office holders. The list will also include Igbo political actors in the past who failed Ndigbo and pocketed the commonwealth of the people. It will name failed contractors and publish the photographs of houses , lands, cars , shops and other looted assets by past and present Igbo Governors and their hangers on. It will also reveal the accounts where the Governors ferried our money within and outside the country.
The list is comprehensive and will be shocking to Ndigbo and Nigerians when released. None of them will be spared as they have made life unbearable for Ndigbo.
We call on the EFCC AND ICPC to cross check the facts when they are released and take necessary actions against these enemies of the people who pretend to be ruling them.

[ Masterweb Reports: Adekunle Olushola reports ] - The concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) developed alongside the emergence of corporations more than a century ago and is now practiced by most companies and institutions around world. While corporations may vary in their level of commitment to CSR, their practice is largely focused on corporate philanthropy such as donating to charities, supporting causes or sponsoring individuals, groups and programmes. However, some companies, intent on making their CSR impact more effective, are rethinking this approach. Among these companies is Guaranty Trust Bank (GTBank) plc, a leading African financial institution headquartered in Nigeria and spread across sub-Saharan Africa and the United Kingdom.
GTBank has always been heavy on CSR. The bank maintains a clearly defined Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy with targeted focus on Education, Community Development, the Environment and Arts. Among its landmark CSR programmes are the GTBank Adopt-a-School programme through which the Bank has taken over the provision of facilities to some public schools across Nigeria’s six geopolitical zones. The Bank also sponsors three annual secondary school football tournaments—The Lagos State Principals Cup, the Ogun State Principals Cup and the Masters Cup—all of which have become major grass-roots football competitions in the country. The bank’s backed Orange Ribbon Initiative is the foremost Autism-focused initiative in the country providing support and raising awareness for people living with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Not resting on its CSR feats, GTBank is innovating how it gives back to its communities by going beyond traditional corporate philanthropies to intervene in key economic sectors to strengthen small businesses through non-profit consumer focused fairs and capacity building initiatives that serve to boost their expertise, exposure and business growth. The first big example of this new approach was the Food and Drink Fair which the bank organized in May. Although the event had all the flavours of Food festivals, with world-class chefs such as Marcus Samuelson and Raphael Duntoye serenading cooking masterclasses, its raison d’étre was to boost the enterprise of indigenous SMEs in the food sector. In that front it succeeded quite remarkably with over 25,000 guests attending the fair and the over 100 SMEs seeing record sales of their products.
GTBank is now looking to repeat what it achieved with the Food and Drink Fair in the Fashion sector. “We are thrilled to be the first in the Nigerian financial sector to pioneer an initiative that will assist in unlocking growth opportunities for businesses in the fashion industry,” said the Bank’s MD, Segun Agbaje, in a Press Release announcing the GTBank Fashion Weekend set to take place in November. “We are committed to growing SMEs in a sustainable manner that is not driven by profits but focused on empowering our customers and growing our economy collectively.” The Weekend, it is understood, will have all the glitz and glamour of fashion events but at its core will be the theme of Promoting Enterprise, which will be achieved through the Fashion MasterClasses for entrepreneurs and designers as well as retail exhibitions to boost the sales of local SMEs.
While in the process of organizing the Fashion Weekend, GTBank also announced the launch of its virtual arts gallery which the bank said will serve as a free platform for local artists to exhibit their artworks and achieve greater market exposure. “At GTBank we see art as an avenue for unlocking people’s creative potential and by creating ART635 we aim to expand the opportunities for art education as well as broaden the reach and viewership of the works of indigenous artists,” said Mr Segun Agbaje in a statement announcing the gallery’s launch. “Although African art goes back several centuries, the art industry in the continent is still young and largely untapped and we hope that with ART635 we can drive its evolution into a lucrative and vibrant economic sector,” he added.
Given the depressed economic situation in Nigeria, and indeed across sub-Saharan Africa, GTBank’s new approach to CSR is an apt response from a company keen on boosting the general economic fortunes of its community. Small businesses, on which the economic growth and development of most African states depend, need not just financial empowerment but also capacity building and access to market, aspects that GTBank’s CSR-tweak does address. The company’s new approach to CSR also shows that far from just innovating for business growth, companies and organizations must always evolve how they give back to their communities to ensure that their CSR programmes continually make its desired impact.

[ Masterweb Reports: Uche Aguoru reports ] - Looking back at the state of affairs in our beloved state Abia after 25 years, our founding fathers both living or dead who gestated with the idea of carving out another state from our parent state Imo must be writhing in irrepressible agony.
Abia is a state that harbours great potentialities in human, material and mineral resources, a state that has produced great leaders and selfless politicians like the late premier of the eastern region chief Dr. M.I.Okpara, Chief Jaja Nwachukwu, Dr. Alvan Ikeokwu, Chief A.O Chikwendu,Chief J.J Okezie to mention but a few.
In business, Abia is reputed to have been the home of foremost Igbo business men and industrialists who traded in honesty and achieved wealth through honest business transactions, one must not fail to mention names such as Chief Nnanna Kalu, the stock fish merchant, Chief Onwuka Kalu, Onwuka interbiz, Dr. Uchechukwu Ogah, President master energy group and a host of others
In the Academia, we have great names like Prof. Eni Njoku, Prof. Ogbuagu, Prof. Anya O.Anya the list is inexhaustible while time and space won't permit me to mention all.
In the military Abia has produced a military head of state, a chief of army staff, military governors and fine military personnel that the Nigerian army are proud of, we have names like Major General Thomas Umunnakwe Aguiyi Ironsi, Gen. Ike Nwachukwu, commodore Emeka Emerua, commodore Ebitu Ukiwe, General Ihejirika commodore Amadi Ikwechegh the list is endless.
We also have great Economists and administrators like the great (KIK) Dr Kalu Idika Kalu, Dr. Paul Ogwuma, (CBN Governor),Dr Mrs Okonjo Iweala the greatest finance minister Africa has produced (CNN), Madam Aruma Oteh and many others.
Abia state has mineral resources like the crude oil and other mineral resources in commercial measures that abound in virtually all parts of the state.
We have Crude Oil Oilfields at Imo River ,Obuzo, Owaza ngboko, Nkali, Odogkwa, Obeakpu and Isimiri, while Natural Gas deposits is found in Ohuru Ukwa East LGA.
We have Tar Sands/ Oilshales deposits in Ugwueme-Lokpanta axis in Umunneochi LGA, Lead,Zinc, and Copper is found in Lokpaukwu (Umunneochi LGA, while untapped Phosphate deposits are found in Amaeke in Umuahia and Ewe in Arochukwu LGAs.
Gypsum lies beneath the earth in Lokpaukwu and it's used by Cement manufacturers, pharmaceuticals and for the manufacture of chalk and plaster of paris, we also have large deposits of Limestone in Ewe- Arochukwu and Isuikwuato LGAs
Iron Ore is found in Isuikwuato LGA, while Kaolin is naturally deposited in Umuahia, Ikwuano and Isuikwuato LGAs
We have large deposits of Industrial sands in Ukwa, Aba and Umuahia,while Igneous rocks is a common site in uturu, Lokpanta and lekwesi all in Abia North state senatorial zone.
In Agriculture it is acknowledged that 70% of the rural dwellers in Abia are engaged in subsistence farming as the state is naturally blessed with arable lands and wonderful vegetation, while timber is found in commercial quantities in places like Bende,Arochukwu and Ikwuano LGA,s.
But in the midst of all these mind cheering blessings from above, Abia has been very unlucky in politics and governance, our political culture and behaviour has thrown up mediocres and encouraged them to run the affairs of the richly blessed state since 1991 when the state was created, one can hardly point at any leader who has shown some form of commitment to the development and welfare of the state beginning from the days of the military till today.
Leaders with blurred vision and stunted creative abilities has been left in charge of the destiny of Abians, the end result is the running down of the commercial pride of the South East, The japan of Africa, and city of the big elephant, Enyimba city.
Past and present administrations in Abia state have contributed in no small measure at ensuring that Aba a commercial town strategically located in the Abia South geopolitical zone with the potential of returning an upwards 2.5 billion Naira in IGR monthly if well managed has been left to rot, roads in Aba and Abia in general has been rendered inaccessible from one point to another, security has become a big challenge to investments and would be investors are scared away by governments demeanour towards the citizens.
The political system has always thrown up lazy, social and economic initiatively deficient people to over see the economic lives of our dear state, leaders who cannot think outside of the box to generate income but will rather depend on the federal government monthly allocation which is hardly enough these days to satisfy their personal greed and the outcome is their inability to meet up with the states monthly wage bill.
An Average Abia civil servant within the past one year and four months can hardly afford three square meal and cater for his family adequately because our political system paired us with an incompetent,careless, lazy, inept and clueless leader whose only quality is equity and he has succeeded in drawing the state back to the days that one will rather not wish to remember, crime and criminality that left Abia is now an every day story across the state, striking workers are no longer news in Abia, educational institutions are now resorting to self help by over taxing the students for survival, manufacturers are closing shops, contractors are relocating to neighbouring towns, touting has become the only industry that is still employing the youths.
What else will I say, today I join in prayers with fellow Abians to ask God to please have mercy on Abians and give us that man who has the vision and mission to turn back the lost fortunes of Abia,that man who has the economic creativity to make Abians rejoice, that man who has the genuine fear of God in him, that man who will not watch Abians cry while he indulges in expensive wine and parties, that man who will create employment opportunities for Abians,like the Master Energy Group instead of using them as thugs
God be the judge over the affairs of men and give us back our choice of a leader through the supreme courts, one who will restore sanity in the system and bring Abia back to reckoning amongst the comity of states.
