This is a pertinent question asked by an National Assembly observer, read through and ruminates
“I am watching Arise 9:00 clock news now.
“I was shocked to hear from Arise News analyst say that Orji Uzo Kalu said he voted NO to electronic transfer of election results because there is no telephone network in his territorial zone in Abia North.
“And that once he voted NO, as a leader of the Red Chamber, other Senators from the North queued behind him to vote NO.
“Can you see how our Igbo politicians are enthroning mediocrity in Nigeria?
“Orji Uzo Kalu is from Igbere which is 27 km from Umuahia.
“But Abiriba that is 56 kilometers from Umuahia is clearly functional on telephone network.
“He told lies in the Senate to jeopardise Igbo interest.
“That is your Igbo leader and aspirant of President of Igbo extraction”.
Meanwhile, amongst Senators from Abia State, it is only Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, representing Abia South Senatorial district that stool still to oppose the “NO to Electronic Transfer of Election Results”.
No wonder the core North keeps on boasting that they’ll continue to rule the rest of us till eternity.
