  • Can APC rescue Anambra?
  • INITIALLY I didn’t care. I stopped caring long
    ago about politics in my home – state of
    Anambra. It was not because I have become
    less of an Anambra indigene. It was entirely due
    to two factors. The first was the ease with which
    impunity occurred in my dear state. The second,
    a direct descendant of the first, was the rise and
    rise of mediocrity in every facet of governance
    and the enthusiasm with which my state
    celebrates incompetence. It was horrifying
    watching my state metamorphose into a grand
    theatre of home-grown absurdities.
    Deep within me I stopped caring. Deep within
    inside me also, I knew I should not stop caring.
    Though I reside outside the state many of my
    folks do and I am uncannily aware that, one day,
    sooner than later, I may voluntarily or forcefully
    or even circumstantially be compelled to retire
    to my state. Won’t I then become guilty of
    acqueisance and abdication? Won’t it also be
    too late then to tackle the crooked hands of
    mediocrity and incompetence? It would be very
    sad to begin to sojourn in a state where neither
    I nor my children and their peers would have
    any guarantee for peaceful, progressive and
    developmental existence.
    This is not what I want to retire into or how I
    want my children and other Anambra children to
    live. I have spent two months of vacation in my
    state and I have visited major towns and several
    villages. I have engaged people in and out of
    government, met different classes of people and
    listened to varying shades of opinion; truths,
    half-truths, exaggerations and outright lies. I
    met realists, psychophants and confusionists.
    I have reflected on everything, pondered and
    reasoned. I have sieved the grains from the
    chaff and the remnant has become a prime
    source of escalating worry. The sincere
    deduction I made from all I saw and heard,
    persuaded me to the conclusion, that my state
    is in dire straits and urgently desires rescue.
    Obviously, the administration in the state has
    reached its wits end and can do no more. It
    would be grossly insensitive and detrimental to
    task it further as the result would be total
    disappointment.
    Indeed, the incumbent administration in my
    state has given its best and though this best
    has not been good enough, it was still its best
    and the governor deserves our commendation.
    We may be angry and blame the system that
    compelled him into power.
    As a successful career banker, he did not
    aspired to become governor and therefore, did
    not conceive plans or ideas for being governor.
    He was strangely preferred above career
    politicians, who had planned not only to become
    governors but on how they would become
    successful governors. The enormous
    responsibilities of governance on an unprepared
    mind can be totally overwhelming. The recurrent
    maladministration, misplacement of priorities
    and pervading incompetence in Anambra State
    now are the result of the imposition and also,
    the triple reasons why the rescue of the state
    should be paramount to Ndi Anambra.
    As the November governorship election draws
    near, the state must avoid the mistakes of 2013.
    It must shun candidates imposed by powerful
    individuals or cabals. The state has had enough
    of differences between godfathers and godsons
    e.g Mbadinuju vs Emeka Offor, Chris Uba vs
    Chris Ngige, Peter Obi vs Obiano. The state
    should opt for a strong party which controls its
    members and not a weak party controlled by
    one person or a clique.
    Ndi Anambra must align with a nationally
    oriented party and forbid the retrogressive idea
    of belonging to a one state party. Another Biafra
    has not happened. Anambra is still in Nigeria
    and therefore, Ndi Anambra must put an end to
    the politics of exclusion and embrace inclusion.
    We must bear in mind that being defeated is
    often a temporary condition; giving up is what
    makes defeat permanent.
    Now in Anambra, there are just three viable
    political parties. The first is the incumbent All
    Progressives Grand Alliance APGA, which has
    reached the limit of its best and can go no
    further. The second is the Peoples Democratic
    Party PDP, once upon a time, a roaring and
    devouring lion, truly king of the jungle.
    Incidentally, this lion has suffered multiple
    fractures and can no longer even roar. No one
    knows how long its healing process would take
    before it roars again. The third is the All
    Progressives Congress APC, the only party with
    federal might today and more national presence.
    I have heard and observed that it is the only
    party with truly national colouration and the only
    party that still stands cohesive and strong,
    owned by all members and not manipulated by
    few individuals.
    Before, I began talking to people; I already had
    a distant hunch that APC was the only party that
    could provide credible and reliable alternative in
    my state. Now, that I have talked and listened to
    people, I am more resolute that only the APC
    can now fulfill the eternal wishes of Ezeigbo
    Gburu-gburu, Chwukuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu,
    Ikemba Nnewi, to re-integrate Ndi Igbo into the
    mainstream of Nigerian politics. In the emerging
    realities in Nigeria, Ikemba would not have
    wished for Ndi Anambra to be engrossed in Eke
    Awka or Otu Nkwo politics as alternative to
    mainstream politics. We must listen to the
    advice of Pope John XXIII, “consult not your
    fears, but your hopes and your dreams.”
    As I discovered reasons to back APC in the
    November election, I became helpless as to
    which of its many aspirants to support. In two
    months, I have heard, read and researched
    about the aspirants. One odd thing stood out.
    They all spoke about themselves, about their
    antecedents and how they would transform
    Anambra under their watch. They all saw the
    November election as individual contests they
    would win on their own strengths. Only one
    aspirant, Sen. Andy Uba, chose to be different.
    He was dynamic and pragmatic and his
    strategies are not personal or cloned to his
    person. He chose to talk about the party and
    seized every opportunity to market it. I began to
    notice him.
    When recently I read in the papers, that he
    donated 24 vehicles to the party and not to his
    campaign organisation, I saw the vision of a
    man who could easily win an election because
    of how strongly he has positioned his party. I
    followed his speech on that occasion across
    print and social media and it was quite revealing
    that he kept talking of how APC would run APGA
    out of Anambra and how APC had come to help
    Ndi Anambra out of their present problems. Not
    once did he use the prefix “I” in relation to the
    forthcoming election or its preparation.
    I concluded that Andy Uba was the only one in
    the pack who maturely believes in the power of
    a strong party. His willingness to submit to
    party’s control was not in doubt and he
    appeared to me, to be prepared to work for the
    greater glory of the party. His legendary
    philanthropy which was attested to everywhere I
    went makes him very easy to market. I see him
    as the aspirant with natural capacity to
    reintegrate Anambra State into mainstream
    Nigerian politics.
    With a candidate like him, APC can indeed
    rescue Anambra State and many people would
    have guarantee for developmental existence in
    the state.
