The APC new media has revealed how the Governor of Anambra State ,Professor Chukwuma Soludo engaged an Anambra billionaire to plead with Senator Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah to put in good words for him before Anambra people at his town hall Meeting in Abuja.
This was revealed by APC new media in a new article.
According to the new media office:
“Do you remember how you organised a town hall meeting in Lagos State, to purportedly raise money for security equipments after your initial declaration that sit-at-home had ended, upon your assumption of office. We remember how your declaration triggered even greater insecurity, forcing the State into more severe sit-at-home.
“Then, you ran to Lagos State like a frienghtened dog with it’s tail between its legs, to beg for funds from Ndi Anambra resident in Lagos despite the fact that you take N2 billon Naira every month as security vote. In addition to this, you keep and spend at will hundreds of millions of Naira, allocated to the 21 local governments in the State. This is the major reason you have renegaded on your own promise to conduct local government election in Anambra in your first six months. Today, your self appointed local government council members have been in office for over one full year. The tragedy is that the Anambra State Independent Electoral Commission -ANSIEC, has not been constituted by you and there is no hope that you will soon constitute them so they can conduct the local government election. Is the APC or Distinguished Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah, the reason you have deliberately failed to keep your own promise?
“Dear Professor, can you recall that while you were begging for funds in Lagos , the Senator Representing Anambra South Senatorial District immediately set to work like a real man and used his personal funds to purchase security equipments ( CCTV cameras, walkie-talkies, drones, vehicles, motor cycles etc.) worth over 500 Million Naira, which he used to build a security architecture that pushed back the insecurity in Anambra South Senatorial. At a time when the senatorial zone was the epicenter of the insecurity in the state, as a result of its shared borders with Imo and Abia States.
“Seeing how the Lagos town hall meeting flopped while your funny call on Ndi Anambra to bring home, their businesses got roundly ignored and laughed at, it is understandable why you are grappling with straws, leaving substances unattended.
“Having received intelligence report that the Abuja townhall will also be ignored, we have it on good authority that you reached out to Senator Ifeanyi Ubah through a prominent Anambra man who is a major player in the electricity sector(seen standing beside the Senator in the video), and begged him to assist in hyping the governor before Ndi Anambra resident in Abuja that will attend the event. You begged Senator Ifeanyi Ubah to also convince the other senators from Anambra Central and North, who reluctantly attended at the comradeship prodding of Senator Ifeanyi Ubah.
“We have it on good authority also that Ifeanyi Ubah gladly granted your request to put in good words for you before Ndi Anambra. You voluntarily acknowledged Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s security concept all over the state with the funds raised from the townhall event as well as Improve on your general performance since assumption of office.
“Ifeanyi Ubah was not the only person that was willing to give you the benefit of doubt to succeed; many Ndi Anambra were also on this table, given that you had served in the past as a former one term CBN governor and being a professor of economics, it was just not thinkable that your failure can be this loud and all encompassing.
“Dear Professor Suo-lum Oyibo, To date, you have yet to purchase a single pin as security equipment or vehicle as you promised.
“You are yet to commission one completed road project in almost two years in office.
“You are yet to do anything in Okpoko as promised.
You are yet to conduct local government elections and merely hands TC chairmen meagre sums from the over 100 million naira a month that is meant to go to each local government, from federal allocation.
Since you entered office, we have daily been regaled with stories of brutalization by thugs collecting revenue for you, as well as in-fighting amongst the two top officers in the revenue house accusing each other and your inlaw of corruption and feeding on the sweat of Ndi Anambra whose expectations that you are a messiah have been thoroughly dashed.
“Today the trending question at every gathering in Anambra presently has become, who will succeed Soludo?
“Our dear Anambra is now a state where the commissioner for finance resigns out of frustration. Anambra is now a State where stories of your Commissioners begging for alms on the streets of Awka abound while you take N2 billion Naira as security vote every month and personally handle the execution of shoddy road contracts by proxy using your in-law and a few others. You have completely captured the finance sector of Anambra State with both Commissioner for finance and the Accountant General as your brothers.
“That is why road contracts in Anambra are mostly done by little known companies like Uwakwe and sons Ltd, while Abia in less than six months, is using a frontline construction company Julius Berger.
“Dear Prof, there are even reports of quarterly allocation of 600 million to the office of your first daughter for her fashion shows from the state government coffers.
“Is this part of why the former commissioner of finance was not allowed to handle his financial duties and he had to resign in frustration?
“We are also aware that you have commenced building a befitting Government House at Isuofia, with tax payers’ money.
“Was this part of your electoral promises to ndi Anambra?
“You are yet to give account of the monies so far donated by a few to the state security trustfund so as to encourage the numerous other sons and daughters of the state to donate too.
“Recall that Senator Ifeanyi Ubah organised the same Anambra sons and daughters, and they willingly donated over half a billion Naira and built hospitals at Awka and Nnewi, for Ndi Anambra during the Convid-19 Pandemic. Dear Prof, as I am sure you are aware, everything was done transparently and took barely six months.
“You have 2 weeks to publish the names of those who donated to the state security trust fund and what you intend to use the funds for.
“Governor Mbah of Enugu didn’t need fundraising to buy helicopters, security vehicles, and the rest for the state. He used his security vote, and it is not up to the N2 billion Naira monthly that you pay yourself.
“Those Anambra sons that gave you the benefit of the doubt and made donations to your security trust fund, are still waiting to see one tangible thing that the state government will do with the funds.
“They have only seen you insult late Prof. Dora Akunyili, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, Mr. Peter Obi, Chief Obiora Okonkwo of United Nigeria Airlines, GUO Motors and recently Senator Ubah since he joined the APC and set off panic alarms in your APGA cum Atiku’s PDP camp.
“Ndi Anambra love and trust Senator Dr Ifeanyi Ubah CON. We shall be demanding an open apology from him, if you do not keep your own end of the bargain and start working for the state as you promised him.
“Setting up propaganda units and shamelessly campaigning for second term so early in your first tenure despite your “start and quench” clueless governance style, so far, will not deter or hoodwink Ndi Anambra from seeing through your charade.
“The million dollar question that begs for answers is; if you are doling well , will you need to trend a video of where Senator Dr Ifeanyi Ubah, CON, is speaking good of you?
“Is your Atiku/PDP mask of an APGA government doing enough to reassure the people that you know what you are doing or you are busy exchanging banters with the real lovers and stakeholders of the State in clear exhibition of your cluelessness?”
