By Comrade Robinson I. Nwachukwu.
An Igbo adage has it “Obiara ibe onye abiagbura ya, o na wa nkpunkpu apuna ya n’ azu”
This literally translate, “He who pays a visit to someone, should not kill his/her host and when he/she is leaving, he/she shouldn’t develop a hunch back”
Meanwhile, when the opposite becomes the case, then the host should take action before it turns out to become the story that touches the heart.
Ndi-Anambra, is in dire need of political re-engineering to connect the State to the center for more benefits from the Federal Government. Secondly, Ndi-Anambra, is eager to link up to Abuja as a way of saying “Thank you” To President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, for the ongoing construction of the 2nd Niger Bridge, the opening of Onitsha Port, among other numerous Federal Government projects in the State.
The State Chapter of APC. In Anambra is the vehicle needed by the good people of Anambra State to get to Abuja. Luckily, there will be a governorship election in Anambra this year.
Alas, while APC is working very hard to achieve victory in Anambra State guber election. A total stranger looking for easy money for food, decided to go on a useless voyage of blackmails against APC, in particular and Ndi-Anambra in general.
The puerile blackmailer Paschal Candle who hails from Imo State, in his evil tactics strived to cause disaffection among Distinguished Senator Emmanuel Andy Uba and other APC guber aspirants. Worst still, the naysayer in his devilish voyage decided to set a highly respected APC chieftain, in a collusion course with the hospitable people of Anambra State.
This is were the Igbo adage I quoted at the beginning of this piece comes handy. It is time for the Ndi-Anambra to unanimously and in clear term, let the said stranger(Paschal), know that “Obiara ibe onye abiagbura ya, ka nkpunkpu ghara ipu ya n’ azu ma o na wa”
One will not be surprise, if, Paschal Candle is hired by either the outgoing APGA or the comatose PDP in Anambra State. So, as to create disharmony among APC leaders/governoship aspirants in the State. This is possible, because either of the aforementioned Political parties have clearly seen the hand writing on the wall. Ndi-Anambra have rejected them.
The fidgeting of both APGA and PDP become more precarious owing to the wider acceptability of one of the APC guber aspirants in Anambra State Distinguished Senator Emmanuel Andy Uba(MFR), by the populace (both Anambraians and non-Anambraians resident in the State).
The clamour for the former two-time Senator who represented Anambra South Senatorial District in the 7th and 8th Senate has effectively destabilize opponents of APC, in the forthcoming gubernatorial election tagged “Anambra 2021” Maybe, that might informed their reason for resorting to hiring a poor hungry political jobber from Imo State, to blackmail APC, one innocent woman whose only sin is that she is a core APC loyalist, and to a larger extent Sen. Andy Uba (Igwebuike Anambra).
It should be noted, that as, a perfect gentleman and a core loyal party man. Any blackmail, against APC in Anambra State or directed at any respected chieftain of the party, is directly or indirectly blackmailing Distinguished Senator Andy Nnamdi Uba(MFR).
As the man highly favoured, and widely endorsed by the larger population of Anambraians and non-Anambraians to succeed Governor Willy Obiano.Sen. Andy Uba(MFR) frowns at any attempt to create unnecessary disaffections, among the APC family in the State. Or paint the State as a hostile environment for leaders of the party who are not from the State.
