OPINION

Undeserved insults on ex-Gov. Mbakwe
 By Odimegwu Onwumere

Many Nigerians have known today that the Gov. Theodor Ahamefule Orji administration in Abia State is an expert in telling lies and in the use of propaganda to discredit opposing view. It even goes as low as labeling its critics rapists, kidnappers, killers, extortionists, and sundry unprintable names. But the people have resorted not to take whatever its fraught media mobs dish out for the consummation of the unsuspecting public, seriously.


It has done it again. Its trademark.

Reading the BusinessDay of Monday 19, August 2013, the article titled, “Governor Orji’s legacy projects”, one could not stop sighing while reading the mind of a desperate governor and his drivel government. The tone of the article was of desperation; the desperation to be noticed and recognised.

But this desperation of Gov. Orji is a hoodwinking type. Knowing that anybody in a position of authority that claims what he or she is not is being foolery. Such a person uses desperate measures to equate desperate ranting.

Desperation is even worse when the person has reached the end of hope and has nothing left to actualise that hope. Such lost hope is not unconnected with the Governor Orji in governance. So, his foot soldiers are working futilely tirelessly to redeem the misapplication and failed method of their "Ochedo Global" to the things of good-governance in that state.

The media-gangster of Gov. T.A Orji who wrote that unenthusiastic article, started by telling us that Abia State inherited “immovable infrastructures” from the old Imo State when it was created, which the media-hoodlum also said were the footprints of Dr. Michael Okpara and Dr. Sam Mbakwe.

The media-liar refused to include Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu in the scheme of things as one of the ex-governors who worked, whose footprints are indelible in that state. All that this liar-government continued to do is to paint Kalu in bad-light, while their Ochendo is “Global”.

But the good people of Abia State know that there is no how that T.A Orji can be measured with Kalu in term of performance. Of course, Kalu has floored Gov. Orji in many ways.

It could be recalled that during the time Kalu was governor, the roads in Aba were, at least, not in the state of deplorable condition they are today and, Umuahia, the state capital, was not made a ‘one city’ in the state. There was decentralisation of works, not centralised. Kalu was not dichotomous in work.

Notwithstanding, Ochendo has not even done anything in Umuahia or in any part of the state that is meaningful. Is it the Keke-NAPEP that his wife’s NGO buy for the humiliated youths? These conks in the present government would always lie that during the Kalu’s tenure, “the description of Umuahia capital was limited from Uwalaka Street to World Bank Housing Estate, which took less than 10 minutes to circumnavigate”. How else do we call somebody a serial liar if not in a statement like this?

This government has sold numerous lies to the world where it is in desperate attempts to discredit Kalu, for its exaltation. It has also refused to tell the world where the sums that one Don Norman Obinna published in many media platforms in an article titled, “"Abia State: Theodore Orji’s Government of Deceit And Falsehood" are.

We are meant to understand in that account that there is a recent communiqué issued by the Technical Sub-committee of the Federal Account Allocation (FAAC) for the month of March, 2013, which demonstrates that Abia State shared among other states, a total sum of N117,942 billion (26.72%), as against N106,442 billion it had acknowledged for the month of February.

Obinna goes further to write that the Local Governments in Abia State are among the Local Governments, which shared N90,928 billion (20.60%), as against N82,062 billion received for the month of February. In-the-face-of all these, Gov. T.A Orji has done ‘very well’ in rendering undemocratic dividends in the areas of abysmal infrastructural decay in the economically shortchanged 17 Local Government Areas (LGA) of the state.

The shamefaced side of the marooned article was where Gov. Orji’s truth-muffler dragged ex-Governor Mbakwe into the thoughtless governance of the state in order to boost its dampened and sunken image.

The media-assailant wrote that the visionless Gov. T.A Orji “is operating on the same wavelength operated by Sam Mbakwe and M. I. Okpara”. Is this not an insult to our untainted icons?

Gov. Orji should stop misleading the public with his media make-belief stories that are better told as moonlight tales. Lies are the continuum of the mis-governance, as we can see in Abia State. The government should stop being desperate in telling lies, instead of in making sure that our people enjoy the dividends of democracy.  

The government should stop doing something wicked with propaganda and lies. This gamut will not lead our state anywhere. Gov. T.A Orji should stop making lies to mean good-governance. He should understand that desperation to be appreciated on false claims is dangerous.  The Gov. Orji administration is expected to be mature by now, but, regrettably, it is only mature in telling lies.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
