My attention has been drawn to a clueless and baseless write-up credited to a mischief-maker Mr. Peter Agba Kalu concerning the candidacy of Chief Daniel Chimezie Okeke, stating that Chief Daniel Chimezie Okeke who is the frontline and most credible candidate is wasting his money and time by going ahead to contest for the office of House of Representatives Arochukwu/Ohafia Federal Constituency.
Ordinarily, I would have disregarded the aforesaid post by the mischief-maker (Mr. Peter Agba Kalu) but for the sake of proper reorientation I will sacrifice little of my time for him to gain some knowledge.
First, I consider his insinuations laughable and baseless. This shows that the massive support and acceptance Chief Daniel Chimezie Okeke (Mezie Abia) has been enjoying from our people as well as across the state has been sending chills down the spine of his detractors. Nevertheless, to state the matter straight, Arochukwu and Ohafia local governments do not have any agreement be it written or otherwise anywhere to rotate the office of House of Representatives Arochukwu/Ohafia Federal Constituency among themselves.
Chief Chuba Okadigbo said “If you are emotionally attached to your tribe, religion or political leaning to the point that truth and justice become secondary considerations, your education is useless. Your exposure is useless. If you cannot reason beyond petty sentiments, you are a liability to mankind.”
Our people have always believed in democracy, that’s why they have always given all candidates the opportunity to test their popularity. For instance, when Hon Ukoh Nkole contested in 2015 and 2019 and won, Opotoyom and other candidates from Ohafia local government also contested against him and nobody raised any issue. How will the candidacy of Chief Daniel Chimezie Okeke now become an issue?
Mr man it’s ideal you sit down and think before jumping into social media to make any post, for the fact that you can afford mobile data and a smartphone doesn’t warrant you to come into social media to make nuisances.
Leave 2023 for electorates to decide.
Chief Daniel Chimezie has always been a strong believer in democracy and I will therefore urge our people and supporters to disregard this concocted story from idle people whose sole aim is to raise issues where there is none. Mezie Abia remains the best candidate for the office of House of Representatives Arochukwu/Ohafia Federal Constituency that will bring the type of representation our people so dearly desire.
