… Governor Hope Uzodinma Should Return The N1billion Given To The Group, To Assist Him In Paying Workers, Teachers, Pensioners & So On

– And Should Reduce The Heightened Tension In The State

A group known as Orlu Political Consultative Assembly, OPOCA, has told its audience that it was going to recall the Senator, Representing Imo West Senatorial District, Owelle Rochas Okorocha from the Senate and for whatever is their reason.

We would have ignored the “adult delinquents”, but for those who might not know the history or story of the elements behind   OPOCA, we have decided to react accordingly.

Those behind OPOCA are Political undertakers who glory in absurdities, simply to enlarge their coast or make their leaking pockets fat. And not just for any meaningful venture, but for leisure and pleasure.

For those who do not know the group, the characters in OPOCA were the same people who carried the mock coffin of Chief Arthur Nzeribe when he was in the Senate and they did that to please Chief Achike Udenwa, who was  governor then.

They were also the same group that confined Chief Achike Udenwa to their Hall of shame. They did that to please Chief Ikedi Ohakim who was governor then.

In 2015, the same group wrote petition to the Inspector General of Police against Chief Hope Uzodinma alleging assault. They did that to please Rochas Okorocha who was governor then and they had done that, thinking that Okorocha would make them commissioners. But Okorocha was not interested in the group using him to fight anybody. He rather appointed two of them Special Advisers.

Chief Samfo Nwankwo, may his soul rest in peace, had died, but  Chief Anunobi, out of anger, decided to join forces with those who had gathered against Okorocha. And that was how he declared to run for the position of the National Publicity Secretary of the APC at the last   Convention of the party against Barr. Emma Ibediro who had the backing of Okorocha.

Today, he is commissioner in Uzodinma’s government and unlike Owelle Okorocha, governor   Uzodinma has found the remaining members of the group willing tools to continue to prosecute his war of attrition against Okorocha.

We have heard that they have been given N1Billion for the recall gimmick. Our only advice is that the governor should use the money to help in paying workers, teachers, pensioners and so on, who have not been paid for several months and there is no sign all the end of the tunnel. 

We are also worried that with the deteriorated security situation in the state, some people with the backing of the state government, would be engaging in activities that would further submerge the security situation in the State.

It is our candid position that the government should not drag traditional rulers into messy political outings. Under governor Uzodinma, the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Pensioners Association, Nigeria Union of Teachers, NUT, Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, have all been destroyed. Now, the traditional Institution. All these do not Speak well of the administration.

It is quite disturbing that since January 15, 2020 when the governor took over the leadership of the State, no day had passed without one problem or the other. A case of one day, one trouble. The State is soaked in tension. Heightened tension for that matter.

The elements in OPOCA do not care about the verdicts of Posterity or history. If they do not understand the things of the flesh, is it the things of the Spirit that they would understand. Only God’s intervention is needed when reprobate mind becomes the issue on the part of some folks.

Let them give their reasons for the recall and go ahead, Let us see how far they can go. But it is only in Imo at the moment, that those selling palm oil in the market are the ones causing stampede in the same market, which is neither advisable nor expected. They should read and interpret the handwriting on the wall. Mene Mene, TEKEL, URPHASIN.
