Okigwe Senate 2020 And Gov. Uzodinma 2023



In an ideal Political Clime where Democracy exists, representation of any group or Locality is determined by what the people want. We can liken this to what is obtainable in Civilised democracies like the United States of America,(USA) and elsewhere. The governor of any state decides who should go for a bye-election. There is nothing bad about it as his state’s interest is what matters most in addition to visible lapses hitherto.

Simply put, what every Constituent of Okigwe Senatorial district aspires, desires are the Needs which absolutely should be the determinant.

It is an already known Fact that Imo North Senatorial District in past years have wobbled Compared to the expectations of the People.

Taking into Corgnizanc the Political actors Characters, Competence, Dynamism, Exigencies, and Relevance of each of the actors Past and Present.

The question Okigwe natives must not fail to ask is, amongst the Plethora of aspirants who is he that has what will be most beneficial both to the zone and state at large?

Indeed that whatever form of Leadership ( govt) people want is what they get. In other words, it’s the desire of Imo North Constituents that the Politician that will eventually be elected at the Polls in the forthcoming Okigwe Senatorial bye-election on October 31st. 2020 will be someone who knows the Pains,  agonies of Okigwe zone, and People. Such a person must be awash with realities and Solutions in View. He must be truly Passionate, Competent with dedication, and true allegiance to existing organs. The Loyalty must be devoid of Selfish Connotations.

This is important for time has come for Leadership to show Content. It is time for accountability so that the zone will  Riggle out of the backwardness menace.

 It is this truism in using what you have to get what you truly desire that is what Okigwe needs now. Sir Frank Ibezim, a bonafide son of Ezeoke -Nsu Ebichi, Ehime Mbano should come top. His political pedigree, a core Professional whose love for the zone knows no boundary. His Characters dwarfs that of his rivals as his Competence can. Never be in doubt. Check it out.   Sir Frank Ibezim while Serving as Honourable Commissioner for Agriculture in Imo state gave a true account of what one should do with his position. The Compelling Need for Imo govt to harness the abundant Agricultural Potentials of Okigwe zone in line with Economic diversifications of Nigeria’s mono-economy was exposed.

That he Revived the Avutu Poultry Farm set up by Dee Sam Mbakwe ‘s govt within a couple of short periods is a Plus. Employments were created for People. This measure created enabling Markets between Abia and Imo states including other Neighbouring states.

Frank Ibezim understands that SMEs drive every Viable economy. To a greater extent, he removed restiveness amongst Locals by placing food on many Family tables.

 The young Philanthropist has also involved himself in many Communal and Religious services. Get to his Community Ezeoke-Nsu, he assisted in the building of God’s Vineyard in the Anglican Communion. Good works they say have good rewards that Nigeria’s National Lawmaking Organ through global research spotted Sir Frank Ibezim, making a global Contact Consult. Many Political Leaders of Nigeria are his Close allies and Friends.

Today Chief Ibezim can walk shoulders high into the Corridors of Power in Abuja and beyond. Recall also that this Isiala- Mbano Son was Spotted by President  Mohammadu Buhari Far back in 2007. PMB never wasted time as he appointed Ibezim Director general (D/G)  for his  Presidential Campaigns in Imo state. Would Okigwe zone fail to exploit this relationship now? Tufiakwa.

Frank Ibezim has also aspired in the Past going to the Federal House of Representatives. But was  Persuaded to drop the aspiration then as a Loyal party man and Politician. Okigwe must learn to reciprocate good gestures as wars can not improve the quagmire the zone found itself. This Politician has also drawn the attention of Federal Authorities to the Erosion and Ecological Problems bedeviling Okigwe without being Called a Senator. The ongoing NDDC road Rehabilitation and Constructions of Ama Ogoke to Ihitte/ Uboma to 7 and Half Obowu /Umuahia is through his Synergy with other Political giants. He understands that a single tree does not make a Forest, hence Ibezim Consults rapidly with Elders, Political and otherwise.

The First ever Electricity Solar Powered Project of Fed. the government in the South – East is Located at Ihitte /Uboma with a Capacity of about 40 to 60 Kilowatts. This project will supply electricity to more than 100 Houses in Ihitte / Uboma and beyond.

In addition, the 127 Hectare RICE FARM in Uboma are eloquent testimonies of a true representative of a district that could attract his People.

 It is not debatable any longer that Youths, Women, Religious and Cultural Associations are Clamouring that Sir Frank Ibezim Should be assisted to pick the ticket. Honestly many people are afraid to face Ibezim, Crystalizing in Sponsored Falsehood about the government endorsing him. He is always cheerful in assisting no matter the level. He has secured employment to many without knowing their Families.

Maybe these are some of his qualities that may get the attention of the Imo government. Frank Ibezim is Charismatic and Intelligent with high regard to Leaders and the grassroots. Recall that Okigwe Zone was nearly messed up during Former President Obasanjo’s reign as the zone asked for a shot at Imo Huber in 2006. No thanks to Prof. Maurice Iwu and co. Be it known also that Sir Frank Ibezim is a beautiful bride before Abuja and Imo state as the APC  would always insist on a Credible Candidate that will remain Supportive towards retaining Seat through Collective Political Bargain.

Sir Frank Ibezim is a team player, Verifiable with his approach towards the Economic Footprints if Senator Hope Uzodinma’s govt in Imo state. Okigwe Political  Leaders should not forget in a hurry what Played out in 2003 when Chief Ikedi Ohakim declared to run for Okigwe Senate. But was Persuaded to drop for his Kinsman. His Excellency, Chief Eddy Onuoha ( Enyioha), Rt.hon Max Duru, One time Speaker Imo Assembly together with Opara Okigwe, Chief Ok Enyiogasi ( Ok 2000), Chief Tony Chukwu , Engr Ebere Udeagu, Prof Green Nwankwo now a Royal Father. Etc.

The APC as a Party should not encourage Scatter- Scatter Mentality as they Navigate towards 2023, else what President Obasanjo told Imo Leaders during guber rumbles in Imo. He said to Udenwa,” Is like your wife is stronger than you.  Then the Secretary to Imo state govt then, Nze I .M .O Umunna said to Udenwa. I was in a dream where I saw You digging your Political Grave.”

Prof. Nnamdi Obiareri Ph.D., High Chief Ziggy Martin’s Nnadozie, and Hon Jasper Ndubuaku can attest to this.  I rest my case now.
