Abia North deserves  better representation in senate

Hon. Toby Chuks Egeonu

No aspects of public life is scrutinized and debated upon as intensely as leadership/representation. It is crucial to the welfare of every society, the survival of political parties, and public affairs. “I can’t think of any better representative in politics than one who is unafraid to be himself, unwavering in his stand and undaunted in his resolution.” When I think of such a man, I think of he who has always been unshaken in purpose. When, I think of such a man, I think of he who remains determined to change things from an unchanging point of pivot. Naturally, elections into leadership/representation have often presented the people with periodic opportunities to retrieve and redeem their losses. Yes, “the oppressed are allowed once in every four years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them.” Be that as it may, in these assumed reparative periods, the landowners -the masses, the proliterates, the oppressed, the electorate, are presented with rare opportunities to make radical changes that ought to put them on the right perspective of things. Perhaps, the web of complex has predominantly caught up with their courage to redeem themselves. Though a few will come out and genuinely participate in electoral processes, majority have long given up and are less interested to participate. The few that participate either have their votes compromised and muscled up or have their consciences mortgaged, so the circle of inconsistencies thus continues. The year 2023 presents us another unique opportunity to right some (if not) all the wrongs of election outcomes in Nigeria. In an emerging democracy like ours, politicians come up with many fake promises – sometimes promising to build bridges even where there are no rivers. They take advantage of the naivety of the masses especially those in rural areas. Their utterances and actions made many lose confidence in the process, thinking that ‘votes’ does not and will never count. However, with the signing into law of the Electoral Act, there is hope in 2023.

As is well known, the fulcrum of nation building is undoubtedly the Legislature, of which the Nigerian Senate seats at the echelon. Election into the National Assembly is the most essential election in that it is bedrock of a virile society. The time has yet come again for Nigerians to carefully elect men and women of integrity into the National Assembly. At that, the Senate and the House of Representatives are not places for the dumb and fainthearted. These are Chambers and temples of legislations and serious business, where people-centric laws are made by people-friendly gentlemen and women of substance. I know a few in Abia who does not deserve a place in the National Assembly, having constantly goofed and made mockery of the people they represent. At least I know one man in Abia who should not only be rejected but be recalled from the present stollen mandate. I know one man who is desperate and unstable in party affiliation since 1998 – from UNCP to PDP to PPA to PDP to APC. I mean Orji Uzor Kalu whose self seeking idiosyncrasies has beclouded from seeing the difference between a ‘letter bomb’ and a ‘love letter’ and has thus refused to see the impending catastrophe in-wait for Nigeria due to his party’s impunity. I know an Orji Uzor Kalu who will be ready to sacrifice the entire Abia North for a porridge. I know an Orji Uzor Kalu who in his characteristic insensitivity has remained silent on the killings, kidnappings, banditry and herdsmen attacks on the people and commuters in Umunneochi -a part of his zone. I know an Orji Uzor Kalu who refused to apologise to Abia state for bringing RUGA rejected and sent packing by Imo state, instead, he counts it as an achievement. I know an Orji Uzor Kalu whose political Ideology is, “make sure your name is announced by hook or crook, then court will authenticate it.” I know an Orji Uzor Kalu who propagates Muslim/Muslim ticket in a country divided on religious line. I know an Orji Uzor Kalu who Abia North must help to return to the prison to serve out the remaining of his jail term than return to Senate to continue to serve the caliphate. Concerned Abias knows it also that such a man deserves condemnation and prosecution for crimes against humanity. One who hates his people from the time he ventured into politics and is still unapologetic about his many misdeeds does not deserve a single vote.

We are wiser:
Abia North is not a place where deedless politicians feast on people’s incapacitation. As the electioneering campaign starts in September 28th, 2022,  I entreat Abia North people to be watchful of the deceptions of selfish politicians.

Ancient Mao is a relief:
One person stands out for many reasons in this election. He is not loud and cosmetic, yet he has achieved a lot for the people of Abia North from the time he went to House of Representatives to the one term he was in the Senate before Orji Uzor truncated his goodie-filled second term. His name is Senator Mao Ohuabunwa popularly known and addressed as Ancient Mao. In my last expository about the Hidden Achievements of this professional political juggernaut, I led an insight into the over forty-eight people he gave federal jobs and their miniseries. They are verifiable. I also gave an insight into the three hundred and forty-eight (348) wrongly disengaged staff of Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike which he took up to the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petition in 2018. In this writeup, let’s focus on the beneficiaries of his Skill Acquisition and Empowerment Project in partnership with SMEDAN for Abia North from 2015 – 2019.
