Anambra 2017 and Opposition’s Bad Temper


As November 18 date for the gubernatorial poll in Anambra State approaches, the tempo and temper of political activities rise with every passing day. Every opposition party professing any kind of presence in Awka talks tough on wresting power from the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA. 

Expectedly, however, the All Progressive Congress, APC, has assumed the epicentre of opposition in the state, having upstaged the People’s Democratic Party’s supremacy in the national political space. Not one to gloss over the fixations of his party’s gains of the moment, Dr. Chris Ngige has jumped into the fray to characterize the opposition. Ngige easily passes for the face of APC in the South East. 
This and the implicit ceding of spokesperson by majority of the opposition groups to him embolden Ngige to seek brazen radicalization, if not militarization, of opposition politics in the state; caring less about the imminent sour aftertaste.

Though they find a common adversary in Chief Obiano, the governor’s impressive development strides, and the subterfuge pervading the class of opposition candidates vitiate their aspirations. The popular impression that the urge of these aspirants might just be to outstretch their political visibility, other than gain control of the statehouse, firms up by the day. 

With a bearing that smacks of disregard for the scathing attacks on his person and office, Gov. Willie Obiano flaunts the achievements of his administration in the past three years as fair and competitive bargains for reelection. He seems comfortable with the jubilant pulse of the citizens of the state whose freedom and safety he has profitably laboured to buy back from diverse crimes endemic in the state. Chief Obiano presents the substantial vibrancy of the state’s economy in the face of national economic repression. He is a proud governor of a state that has maintained elite performance in education, agriculture, health and other indices of good governance. Under him Anambra suddenly became a major player in agriculture, with brands like Anambra Rice, Ugu Anambra and Onubu Anambra (vegetables) hitting national and international limelight.

Anambra workers celebrate Gov Obiano as the most labour friendly governor countrywide because of his unsolicited welfare packages to them; his steadfastness in prompt payment of salaries; the 15% salary increase across board; his transportation scheme for them, etc; just as low income earners in parks, markets and streets, as well as commercial motorcyclists and tricyclists enjoy the governor’s humane economic stimulus in terms of reduced taxation. At the grassroots, the result of the Governor’s ‘N20m Community Choose Your Project Development Initiative’ spread across all the 182 communities in the state speaks volumes of Chief Obiano’s Man of the People’s persuasion. These acts ameliorate the pains of national recession, encourage sustainable economic growth and ensure systemic stability.

An incumbent who posts such credentials as Chief Obiano’s, and whose second term bid is antithetical to the dreams of all other aspirants, should expect no less hard knocks; particularly in Anambra State where reckless tantrums and mischief are liberally deployed in fierce gubernatorial contests. Here, no incumbent seems to do anything pleasing to his opponents. Dr. Chris Ngige (then of PDP and latter of Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN) and Chief Peter Obi (then of APGA) had mutual disrespect for each other while they reigned as governors. Despite Ngige’s momentary brilliant sparks and Obi’s enduring sterling achievements, they took turns in subtly and overtly calumniating each other. Now as apologists-in-chief of APC and PDP in Anambra State, both unconscionably take on Gov. Obiano, in a bid to pronouncing him unelectable: an awkward demonstration of ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend.’ 

The lures of political power and the privileges of political influence now conspire to rob Anambra State the peace APGA government has painstakingly groomed in the past eleven years. The prime conspirators in this appear primarily fixated on plotting Gov. Obiano’s failure by sponsoring negative choruses on his administration. Given their determination, it will not be surprising if they stimulate criminal disorder in the course of time, just to undermine Obiano’s most potent bargaining power: Security and safety of lives and property. It is observable that in politics when the subject of interest persistently tends more to awry defense of ego and personal interests than governance and society, service and lordship begin to slyly compete for favoured space in people’s consciousness. This confusion and its resultant hurt spare no one in the long run.

It will be a security oversight disregarding the seemingly war chants from vociferous South East APC chieftains thronging into Anambra with defiant avowals to overrun APGA howsoever. The Anambra electorate is getting restive and battle conscious. Signs of resistance are emerging as majority of Anambra citizens condemn the effrontery in the influx of failed political opportunists from other Eastern parts latching on to APC to disrupt the state’s surefooted lead in development east of the Niger. As a homegrown party that has entrenched itself in Anambra, APGA underscores the Igbo spirit of resilience and survival. Ndi-Anambra are therefore known to be passionate in their defense of APGA government for giving stout expressions to their passions for industry and safety. It is a common belief that Chief Willie Obiano holds the template for greater Anambra, having made Anambra the safest and most investment friendly state in Nigeria within a short span of three years. The risk of recycling politicians with either questionable antecedents or vague vision in corporate administration is total and does not sound bankable to Anambra people.

Given the overwhelming support APGA and Gov. Obiano enjoy from the citizens and residents of Anambra State, and the anxiety over probable underhand influences from Aso Rock in the coming election, November 18, 2017 boldly challenges the integrity of Independent National Election Commission, INEC, as a disinterested umpire. It challenges the Presidency as a dispassionate arbiter. 

Also on trial will be the groups of national and international election monitors whose informed views are expected to add value to the process. Without doubts the international community will be on hand to judge our democracy.

The Humanity Of the Obiano Government


It gives me a certain claim of honesty - amidst denials - to write about the humanity of the Willie Obiano administration. It is one aspect of his government that is hardly reported, but which has greatly defined the thrust of his administration. 

It may be fair to argue that but for this, the achievements in security, investment, agriculture, infrastructure, education, health etc- for which the government has gained wide acceptance - might have come in vain. Except there is a decision not to report it, the silence sucks.   

If the Obiano government is standing on a pinnacle today it is not because it fixed security of the state hitherto in a whirl. It is not because it gave the state’s infrastructure that existed in outline some uplift. It is not because it resuscitated investment which had hit the nadir. It is not because it boosted agriculture until then in active decline. It is not because it gave healthcare a shot in the arm and sustains the progress in education. No, not in the least! It is because, in addition to all these, the government has shored up effort in the intangible sector.

On assumption of office Governor Obiano did one very uncommon thing. He gave up his salary for a full term of four years to be used for the upkeep of the less privileged in the society. This was followed up with building of a convalescent home - a sanatorium - at Nteje where the sick and others on the wrong side of life are daily attended to. The home, structured to accommodate inmates with varied forms of disabilities like the mentally sick, beggars, waifs and others, is run by qualified caregivers and medics.  

One or two positive experiences have since followed on from here. One is the de-escalation of the unsightly presence of beggars and waifs on the streets of Anambra. The other is the healthy sustenance of security of life and property in the state. On the face of it, the effect on security may not be palpable. But an example or two would suffice. In not so distant past two “beggars” in Lagos were arrested for different criminal offences. The one, and more notorious, was Clifford Orji, now late, arrested for cannibalism at Toyota bus stop along Apapa – Oshodi expressway. The other a cripple who solicited alms on Bush Street between Anthony village and Maryland was arrested an armourer for a notorious criminal gang. Prior to being arrested their threat to security would be generally disclaimed. They were seen and appreciated as mere beggars. Thus ridding the streets of Anambra of these tenants-at-will does not just augur for urban renewal but also for security.

It is not often government interferes positively in affairs of waifs and beggars. If ever it does, it is to seize and dump them off public space where they are consigned to the wooziness of hunger. Even that type of consignment is fast paling off governments’ schedule as the battered economy has made the luxury of such action difficult. 

Almost at the same time of giving up his salary the Obiano government offered scholarship to disabled but able persons in the state from primary through secondary to the university with a caveat - to have them employed on graduation. Others not covered by the scheme are equally accommodated in the employment exercise going on in the state. To cap this, two physically challenged persons were among the newly promoted permanent secretaries in the state civil service. Even within the governor’s aides are to be found a blind man and a walking paraplegic. To cushion effect of their work the heavily subsidized government transport service was directed to carry them gratis. The limbless among them were provided with prosthetics while those with cleft palate had them fixed.

This effort is boldly complemented by the First Lady of the state, Chief Mrs. Ebelechukwu Obiano. Through her Caring Family Enhancement Initiative (CAFÉ), a Non-Governmental Organization, she has lifted a number of despairing lives.  Early in the life of the administration she showed she was in no mood to shoot craps with the destiny of these people. Sounding philosophical in a speech she delivered at Basden School of the Blind, Isulo, Orumba South Local Government Area, she urged for compassion on the troubled souls, stressing that they have equal right to life. She made it clear that not born disabled, or having passed the age of bearing children, is not a guarantee against having disabled grand children.  

Ever since, she has continued to carter for the lowly in the society. It will belabor time and space, itemizing beneficiaries of her charity. However, hundreds of them have been provided with artificial body parts. Those of them who surmounted their disability to acquire skills were, and still are, equipped with required tools to earn a living. But it is in building houses for indigent widows in all three senatorial zones of the state that the First Lady’s charity communicated uncommon compassion.

The unwillingness to discriminate against any group or individual manifested quite early in the administration. The first test for the governor was weathering pressure to have workers employed in the twilight of the previous administration sacked. Perhaps only a few governors would not consider the financial implication. But even in the face of the dwindling economy salaries, pensions, gratuities, allowances etc are promptly paid. On occasion, the governor has made interventions that either staved off or ameliorated disasters. Not once did he stop his convoy to assist accident victims. He had equally cut short an official visit to Abuja in order to identify with victims of the Onitsha Gas Station fire disaster. On each occasion compensation was promptly given. Some had their hospital bills paid while others orphaned, in the circumstance, got scholarship grant.   

It is not to be forgotten how, few months into office, twenty-five prisoners, granted amnesty by the state, were issued with a check of N1million each to start life afresh. They were expected to seize the opportunity to get reintegrated into the society. So far as this, nothing has suggested otherwise. The Obiano government has within a space of three years moved development in the tangible and intangible sectors optimally.

Rivers At 50: Rivers PDP Chairman, Bro. Felix Obuah Advocates Love Among Rivers People


As Rivers State celebrates 50 years in existence, the State Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bro. Felix Obuah has called on all Rivers people to love one another irrespective of religion, social status, beliefs and political affiliations.

Bro. Obuah said what is paramount at the moment is gratitude to God, whose Grace, Goodness and Mercies had taken the State to an enviable height.

The PDP Chairman enjoined the people to use the 50th anniversary to demonstrate love, peace, oneness and justice, and patriotism, stressing that through this, Rivers State will wax stronger and truly take its rightful place as the Treasure Base of the Nation which other States would emulate.

In his words, “as the Jubilee Governor, Wike has brought peace, development and unity amongst Rivers people.  He is a unifying factor and a bridge builder. 

“I urge every Rivers man and woman to pull down every barrier and limitations and give Mr. Project all the support he needs to take the State to greater levels”.

On whether Rivers State, in 50 years, has actualized the vision of her founding fathers, Bro. Obuah said although the State is not there yet, but with Wike, he is optimistic that the dreams of the founding fathers of the State would be achieved.

According to the PDP Chairman, Governor Wike is building legacies that will not only compete favourably with infrastructures put in place by Diette-Spiff and Dr. Peter Odili, but those that will stand the test of time and would at the end of the day, surpass what had been on ground.

Bro. Obuah, while appealing for unity of purpose, urged Rivers people to embrace the ideals of patriotism, selflessness and total dedication to the development of the State, stressing that these traits were quintessential for actualizing the Rivers Dream, adding that the efforts of past and present leaders of the State have clearly proved that there is unity in diversity. “This, we all need to sustain as a people”, Obuah emphasized.

He commended the initiative of honouring heroes and eminent Rivers leaders both present and past, particularly those who have made significant contributions towards promoting national unity and development in the State.

The PDP Chairman said the awards are not mere symbol of recognition but avenues to encourage the younger generation towards patriotism and love of the State.

“Rivers people should be passionate in their advocacy for unity, love and neighborliness.  They should be patriotic and champion ideals that would contribute to the development of the State”, Obuah advised.

Jerry Needam      
Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to
Bro. Felix Obuah, PDP Chairman, Rivers State.

Imo APGA Disowns Agbaso


The state Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Peter Ezeobi has distanced the state chapter of the party from  judgment of the Enugu State High Court which declared Chief Martins Agbaso as the national chairman of the party.

Ezeobi said he (Agbaso) was not a member of the party, having earlier defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and is yet to officially return to the party.

The Imo State APGA chairman who stated this yesterday in Owerri, while reacting to the judgment of the court said  Victor Oye remains the only authentic national chairman of APGA.

According to him,  Chief Agbaso was a member of the party until he left the party for PDP in 2015 where he has contested for the gubernatorial primaries of the party. He said since he left, there was no record that he had officially returned.

“It was a rude shock for the Imo State branch of APGA to hear in the news that a court of competent reckoning in this country announced his name as the national chairman of a party he is no longer a member,’’ he said.

The APGA chairman said there was the need for the judiciary to support democracy in the country to grow rather than promote acts that could cause disharmony.

He said the state chapter of the party was behind the Victor Oye-led national leadership of APGA and supports the move by the party to challenge the judgment that announced Agbaso as chairman.

PRESS RELEASE: APGA NWC Reaffirm Commitment And Support For Victor Oye Led Party Leadership


The national working committee of APGA wishes to reaffirm its commitment to sustaining the core values and fundamental objectives of APGA as a political movement with an itinerant mass appeal , driven by a focus towards providing a clear alternative platform , based , as it were , on true democratic principles and ideals and the rule of law .                                              

Accordingly , the national leadership of the party under   Dr. Victor Ike Oye  , as national chairman has continued to maintain the highest sense of duty and commitment towards building bridges of friendship across political , religious and ideological divides.

To this end we must continue to advise ourselves that the survival of democracy in Nigeria largely depends on the Rule of Law and the immutable conduct of the judiciary . On our part as politicians , we must remain undeniably central to promoting and strengthening democracy and the rule of law through transparency and exemplary conduct .                                                                                

Once more , we wish to place on record that on the 21st of December 2016 , the National Executive Committee ( NEC) comprising the leader of the party , His Excellency , Governor Willie Obiano , members of the board of trustees , members of national working committee (NWC) , all state chairmen and secretaries , members of the national and state assemblies from the party ,  etc etc , reaffirmed Dr victor Ike Oye as the national chairman of the party  , and passed a vote of confidence on his leadership of the party .

The same NEC meeting , confirmed and ratified  the expulsion of late OZO Nwabueze Okafor , okechukwu Nkoloagu , Chuks Nwoga , jerry Obasi , Campbell Umenzekwe , Ezinne Amaka Agbiogwu ,and Terry Godfrey from the party for gross anti-party activities .                                

We wish to recall that the expelled members had instituted a court action at the High Court of the FCT Abuja challenging the leadership of our national chairman , Dr victor Ike Oye. That FCT Abuja High court matter is now pending at the Court of Appeal Abuja Division following an appeal on an interlocutory ruling of the FCT High court. The said appeal is listed for hearing on the 1st of June 2017.                                                                  

So , notwithstanding their expulsion from the party , and the pendency of the matter at the Court of Appeal Abuja division , the said expelled members met in owerri , IMO state , purportedly as NWC  to take numerous nefarious decisions against the party , including clandestinely instituting an action at the High Court of Enugu state , using one mike Anioke as 1st plaintiff and APGA as the 2nd plaintiff ,without the knowledge of the National working Committee of APGA . Consequently , on Monday 22nd day of May 2017 , Hon. Justice A R Ozoemena  made directory consequential orders upon an undefended suit surreptitiously instituted against INEC , IGP , and C P ,Enugu state .                                                              

The National  Working Committee of APGA wishes therefore to make a clear and categorical statement as follows;                                                                          

1.That Dr. Victor Ike  Oye still remains the national chairman of APGA (as we were not a party to the suit E/192m/2017 ).                                                                

2. That the judgment of Hon. Justice AR ozoemena in suit no. E/ 192 m/2017  , delivered on 22 / 05/ 2017 , was procured through fraudulent manipulation of the judicial process , fraudulent concealment and misrepresentation of material facts , deceit to court , and  flagrant contempt to the Court of Appeal Abuja Division , ceased of the earlier case on the same subject matter of rightful leadership of the party .                          

3. That the national chairman of APGA , Dr ,victor Ike Oye was never made a party to the suit  .                                                                                      
4. That  APGA was fraudulently made a plaintiff in the suit without the knowledge of the national working committee.                                                                                        

5.That the sponsors of this court matter at the High court in Enugu did not disclose to court that they had been expelled from the party.                                          

6.That the High court in Enugu was not informed of the pendency of the matter coming up for hearing at the Court of Appeal on the 1st of June 2017.                                                                                                            
7. That even the parties on record in the said suit no .E / 192m /2017 were unaware of the pendency of the suit as the purported service of court processes were fraudulently manipulated .                                                
Therefore , the national working committee (NWC) of our great party , under the leadership of Dr victor Ike Oye , completely dissociates our party from the said suit . We also wish to assure our teeming members and supporters that we are very much on top of the situation .                                                                        

Sgd. Hon(sir) Ifeatu Obi-Okoye  ksc.

APGA’ll Return Obiano As Anambra Gov — Nwegbo


The All Progressive Grand Alliance yesterday boasted that it would win Anambra state governorship election scheduled to hold on November 18. 

Acting vice national chairman, South East of the party, Mr Uche Nwegbo while speaking with Vanguard, said APGA was prepared for the election and would return governor Willie Obiano for the second term.

He said the party was not intimidated by the influx of political gladiators to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

“All the names in the APC are the same names that wanted to wrestle power from APGA and until today, the state is still enjoying power under APGA. WILLIE OBIANO “When a politician leaves a party and joins another with the same character, it is of no use. The people of Nigeria and the South East should not be worried because it is a common phenomenon. Politics is all about common interest and permanent interest”. 

According to him, the governorship election would be predicated on the real issues of governance and Anambra is set to give APGA the mandate to continue. “Governor Obiano has done so well in all sectors of the state economy that even the former CBN governor, Professor Charles Soludo acknowledged in the lecture he delivered during the celebration of Obiano three years in office.” 

Nwegbo said  was on course as victory was  assured for him and the party and urged APGA members to come together and work as one family.
