An uneasy calm prevailed last week end in Awka as a crowd of State House of Assembly Aspirant took their turns in the All Progressive Grand Alliance screening exercise held behind closed doors .

The screening exercise which could be described as an exercise shrouded in secrecy was conducted under water-tight security as journalists were barred from having a glimpse of the screening processes and procedures in the course of the exercise following an express order given to security men on guard at the entrance door to the hall where in the screening was conducted.

When journalists made further attempts to inquire about the whole process, they were told that the screening exercise was not for public consumption.However some of the aspirants who came to the venue as early as 8 am and were still unattended to at abut 2 pm shared their experience with newsmen.

One of them Hon.Edward Obiefuna Ibuzo who aspires to represent Onitsha-North 2 State Constituency in the Anambra State House of Assembly if elected in 2015, said the exercise seemed to be shrouded in secrecy as he described the screening exercise as not being properly organised and that many of the aspirants were taken unawares.

Hon.Ibuzo maintained that all the contestants for the Anambra State House of Assembly on the platform of APGA were summoned impromptu for the screening exercise stressing that reservations hinged on the fact that they were not adequately informed by the screening committee to enable them come to the venue with all the relevant documents to avoid being stranded.

The Onitsha-North 2 State Constituency Aspirant further alleged that aspirants were asked to pay 200,000 naira before they were screened and according to him , upon further enquiries he was made to understand that the aforesaid sum of money was for the screening committee .He said they had no such premonition that they would pay such amount before screening , admonishing that adequate information should always be provided to the aspirants beforehand and not imposing anything on them at the screening ground .

Meanwhile Barr.Cyprain Chukwudi Mmadukife who aspires to represent Awka-North State Constituency in the Anambra State House of Assembly in his opinion of the screening exercise said the exercise was hitch-free emphasizing that the process was on first come, first serve basis as they were given numbers to specify their turn.

Barr.Mmadukaife further disclosed if elected in 2015 , he would make a significant difference in political representation in Awka-North State Constituency .




    Chairman of Ohanaeze NDI IGBO (Pakistan Chapter)

    In early day of my practical life, it was said that expatriates are the ambassador of their respective countries. Look at this face, what kind of ambassador he is, spoiling his country name in abroad.

    His name is Elder-Statesman Emeka Eric Adonis (recently, I heard his real name is CHUKWEYEN CHUKWEMEKA ERIC (thanks Sandra Duru for this information), a Nigerian National (his pics are given above) remained in my house in Lahore Pakistan from 16 June 2010 – 14 October 2011. According to a written agreement, he was suppose to pay the electricity bill monthly but he vacated my house without paying the electricity bill with electricity meter disconnected. Here is his outstanding detail:

    Electricity bill Rs.82,252.00
    One door damaged Rs. 8,000.00 (min. cost of a door)
    Electricity restoration charges Rs. 4,000.00
    Total: Rs.94,252.00
    Less his security with me Rs.30,000.00
    Net payable by him Rs.64,252.00

    Until, he was in my house, I was like his father, now a day, he is not willing to meet me and hiding somewhere in Lahore – Pakistan.

    Moreover, he gave me a copy of Kenyan Passport. I have a written confirmation from Kenya Embassy, Islamabad – Pakistan that he is not a Kenyan National rather Nigerian. Incompetent and non professional people sitting in Nigerian Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan never replied to my emails while Kenyan Officials replied promptly which I appreciate whole heartedly. My feeling is that Nigerian Embassy officials in Islamabad are there to protect the criminal rather the country interest.

    He claimed, Chairman of Ohanaeze NDI IGBO (Pakistan Chapter), what will be the future of this movement whose chairman is CHEATER/COWARD/LIAR/CRIMINAL.

    Please feel free to write me ( for any clarification. I have written agreement as well as the electricity bill I paid, if anyone wish to see for his / her satisfaction.

    Kindly condemn him at his facebook Elder-Statesman Emeka Eric Adonis OR send him a sms at his Mobile No. 0092306505045 who is tarnishing you Country and Nation name abroad..

    CHEATER/COWARD/LIAR is misguiding at this forum (of the record) that he had paid the dues to Nigerian Embassy in Pakistan. Can you please ask him to produce the proof of payment over here, how much and to whom he paid. Thanks

    Thanks in advance. Regards M Abdullah, Sharjah, UAE Contact No. 00971505271862 & 00971552445361
