It has remained a mystery why silk heads should deem it necessary to take an unholy toll in desperation to assure their stomach infrastructure. His Majesty Eze Nnamdi Oforegbu of Umudiawa Autonomous Community has thrown caution to the wind in his want to gather cheap popularity.
Hunger, they say, can happen to anybody. The positive learning from hunger is that it reminds us of the ups and downs of life and at same time gives us the privilege of valuing life from the prism of those who could not afford a daily meal.
Before now, one thought the challenges of hunger may have been conquered by kings and queens of our esteemed kingdoms and communities but one is left to wonder the effects hunger with the obnoxious vituperations and unholy stand of His Royal Majesty Eze Nnamdi Oforegbu.
Eze Nnamdi Oforegbu has left his constituency in awe for such a three hundred and sixty (360) degrees turnaround on the stand of the Uhuhu larger Community.
Come to think of it, no one can lay total claim without sighting the contributions of Ohuhu people of Umuahia North to the creation of Abia State. Ohuhu Clan had and is still producing men of outstanding repute.
If Eze Nnamdi Oforegbu, who is over sixty five (65 years) an sexagenarian, who have served his autonomous community for about 20 years could deem it expedient to lead a delegation of fellow Ndi Eze to our dear Governor at Government House to seek for a governor of Ndi Umunne ato of Abia Central extraction, where lies the hope of a common Abian?
Does it mean that the likes of the Premier of the defunct Eastern Region of Nigeria; Dr Micheal Okpara, Dee Bob Ogbuagu, a veteran Journalists, one of the founding fathers of Nigerian Institute of Public Relations and it’s median National President, a consummate Rotarian etc were wrong in given their consent and pendeding their signatures to the sacred document called Abia Chatter of Equity (Onye aghala Nwanneya)
These are veterans and co-founders of Abia State who toiled, laboured and sacrificed for us to have a state we can comfortably call our own. The stance of His Royal Majesty and his fellow delegates at this precarious time when everybody are lending their support for peace and tranquility to rain supreme and he chose to tow the opposite direction is most unfortunate. It is sacrilegious, disheartening and uncalled for.
His unpopular stance tantamount to defiling the sanctity of our founding fathers existence, therefore it is a violation of their achievement, defilement of their personality and deliberately pissing on their graves. The two mentioned above were the founding fathers of Abia State and the “Abia Chatter of Equity” for crying out loud. They are specifically from Ohuhu Clan.
This is a crucial moment when we must critically analyse our individual and collective stance before speaking rots of our founding fathers.
We must at this juncture advise His Royal Majesty Eze Nnamdi Oforegbu to beware of the hands of the gods for they are not mad.
It is very wrong for you to piss on their grave.
