The destruction of the Mbari Cultural Centre using the ploy of developing the indigenous city rather than retain what creates hormognity of the Owerri people is in bad test and the creation of new purported autonomous communities, all of these point to an underfined grouse he may hold against the people of Owerri.
I’ve resisted the urge to acquiesce to the allegations that all these actions of Okorocha culminated to the demise of HRM, Eze E.E. Njemanze.
I had originally advocated that the Plaza which was built on our Motor park be removed, but I’m scared that if Rochas is allowed to even touch the Umbrella’s hanging on Douglas Road, he ‘ll destroy from Tetlow into Wetheral roads.
It is my humble opinion that he should build a balloon wall, cutting off the Market from Douglas Road Unfortunately, our House member, Hon. Lugard Osuji and Duke Njiribeako who advised him on this clandestine activities are never in focus, either out of mischief or misunderdanding.
Wrong people are held responsible for the wickedness perpetrated on our people.
Okorocha remains my friend, that does not affect my position on issues. It is not a hidden fact that I do not accept what is happening presently in Imo State University, IMSU where a substantive VC, for no disclosed reason, has been shoved aside to service family and personal interest.
It is unacceptable to me, that traditional rulers would be dethroned for allegedly involving themselves in politics while in the same breathe urging them to campaign to elect the chairman of the Traditional Rulers Council.
The truth of the matter is that Okorocha wants to perpetuate Eze Samuel Agunwa Ohiri in Power; where then lies Ilomuanya’s crime, if it is not personal between him and Okorocha.
It is the aim of Okigwe Zone to produce the next chairman of Imo traditional council at the expiration of Eze Ohiri’s tenure. Alternatively, if Okigwe people are too weak or feeble to protect what is due to them, Eze Chidume Okoro, who contested with Ohiri, earlier should be appointed.
A purported election with one party backed by govt. and the other used as a pawn to declare to the public and creat an impression, that there was an election, is at best fraudulent.
Govt. is a continuum, Okorocha should have leveraged on the Clean and Green programme of former Gov. Ikedi Ohakim which although was carried out t without a human face, but it maintained law and order as was evident in Douglas Road, but his romanced with hawkers and Keke people to the charging of both government and the public destroyed him.
We know there is no third tenure, but Okorocha should think of succession. And the way things are going, who ever he nominates in 2019 to succeed him may be unfortunate.
I do hope, his Elders Advisory Council led by Sir EJK Onyewuchi and Justice Duke Njiribeako, rtd. should be honest enough to stand up and tell him that Bob Kay Njemanze is not quarelling with Rochas but is being honest to the governor’s best interest and those of us who are said to be his friends, including the public whose mandate he is holding in trust.
