Note our 5 point Agenda. Only wickedness and greed can disconnect a representative from his or her constituents. But the people must on their own help the society grow through such little but powerful contributions by insisting on social contract from politicians who today, for purpose of 2019 have become our best friends.
As 2019 draws nearer, I encourage electorate to insist that those seeking elective positions don’t fake their identity. Let them come out real. Failure to do so, should earn them penalty by mobilizing support against them. Anything short of this will backfire. It is the bane of our development. That is why they call us fools with belief that we get easily carried away by what we see and hear.
I just heard that a senatorial aspirant for Orlu zone, yesterday told some youths how he intends to “package” over 20,000 of unemployed youths to US for training and ensure that they make sufficient money to build houses and cars for themselves, If elected. He also gave reason why he couldn’t do much in his previous position since it was an executive office and other factors frustrated him.
So sad! That is what we get when we expect politicians to change temporarily or make more promises because they are contesting election. No! It is disservice to humanity and our collective goal.
A LEOPARD DOES NOT CHANGE IT’S SPOTS.
Dont be deceived by their elusive oratory prowess. Every politician first learns that which I call “wash, wash” before joining politics, including the academically less privileged ones. At worse, they mimic what others say. Don’t give room for that. Look at them, not excluding yours truly and remind us who we are and have always been. That is the way to go.
For me, I remain the Precious Uwadikaechere Nwadike you know. If you expect me to play to gallery because I am contesting election, you are on your own. That will be waste of time.
Your assessment of who I am should not be restricted to my performances as Secondary school Senior Prefect, ORLGASA President, NAORS national President, Orluzurumee Youth Assembly National President, Ourmumudondo Imo State coordinator, Imo Youth Assembly Secretary, positions held in different NGOs ,how successful I have been able to run my businesses even as an undergraduate but also my personal relationship with you as a friend. I may not have been perfect in all of these but that is who I am.
That to me should be the perfect way of accessing politicians. Most of them are fake. That is why we often fall prey.
I tell my friends, “if we disagree, we do that on principle because we must get the society to work again. If you begrudge me, you will one day, see reason for my actions or I see for yours”. We should all be concerned that those who shouldn’t have business to do with leadership have taken over our political space and refused to give way. The people must be able to choose who their leaders should be and can’t be done through financial inducement because it will surely hunt us, after all.
2019 WILL EITHER MAKE US OR MAR US.THE HAWKS ARE BACK!
