Ahead of the anxiety that the incumbent governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha would been declared winner of the April 11, 2015 polls, Imolites took to social media to taunt ace comedian Uche Ogbuagu on his “Ka O Puo” slogan which was in vogue and the oppositions trend of campaign .
Although the election has been declared inconclusive, supporters of the incumbent governor are still keeping faith that their man Okorocha will win after the runoff election, or supplementary as the Returning Officer Prof. Ibidabe Obe had put it.
Uche Ogbuagu released the first edition of Ka O Puo, a comedy album which was meant to taunt Gov. Okorocha and incite Imolites into voting out the Orlu Zone born politician for an Owerri Zone candidate with the Deputy Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] being the anointed one.
He went on to release the “Ka O Puo” Climax which did not make waves like the first edition ahead of the May 28 Presidential Election which his anointed candidate, President Goodluck Jonathan lost.
With the rate of failure associated with everyone the Akabo, Ikeduru LGA born comedian has been supporting, Imolites on social media especially Facebook subscribers have said many things which include that they wonder what will become of Uche Ogbuagu should PDP lose in Imo State.
Some say he should better change state, while others said he should go back to Aba and continue with his laughter junction comedy series or go into full time politics like he is now doing. The truth is that despite Uche Ogbuagu spiteful utterances and pronouncements against Governor Rochas Okorocha, he lost his Mbieri booth, ward and Mbaitolu LGA. In Mbaitolu, Rochas Okorocha secured a whopping 21504 votes against Uche Ogbuagu’s candidate, Emeka Ihedioha who got 10,154. The implication according to knee watchers of the political development is either as TAN Ambassador, Uche Ogbuagu did not used the money provided for him to buy voters that he merely deceived the President PDP into believing that he was the magic ward to topple Okorocha.
Apart from mere speculations and gossips contained in his “Ka O Puo” sing songs, Uche Ogbuagu had no message that had the potential of rubbing the integrity or reputation of Governor Owelle Rochas Okorocha despite being very close to the seat of power for a couple of years before they fell out.
He merely brought bad luck to what was usually a good luck President of Nigeria and Emeka Ihedioha who has been winning elections since 2003.
