The Politics of 2019 in Uzo-Uwani
A Facebook user, social critic and a progressives, Opata Igbo, thus described the politics of Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area in his Facebook post:
I took my time and rationalize why the Governor of Enugu State nominated Cornel Onwubuya for Commissioner after his inhuman regime as a LG Chairman, and my answers are clear to me. It is now clear to me that 98% of stakeholders in Uzo-Uwani is not recognized in Enugu State politics looking at how freely representatives from Uzo-Uwani are been picked and hijacked from Enugu without the concert of anybody from Uzo-Uwani. Can any Governor try such thing in IGBO ETITI, NKANU, UDI or any other part of Enugu State apart from Uzo-Uwani?
If you have been following me, you will recall when I published about the member of Enugu State House of Assembly, Hon. John Ukuta sourcing for a royal contact that will convince the Governor to support him for 3rd tenure. That Ukuta’s plans is still lingering, but in a systematic form. They want to use zoning and actualize their interest. Check it this way;
1 LOCAL GOVERNMENT CHAIRMAN = IGBO-ANO ZONE ( BAR. FIDELIS ANI)
2 SENATOR = ADADA ZONE (SEN. CHUKA UTAZI)
3 COMMISSIONER = NBANANO ZONE ( CORNEL ONWUBUYA)
4 HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY = OGBONI ZONE ( HON. JOHN UKUTA)
With this clear analysis you can now understand where the games is coming from. Ukuta will be completing his second tenure in 2019 but looking at this analysis every zone is holding a position which in 2019 they will still have chance to run for 2nd tenure excerpt Ukuta’s office that don’t have tenure limit and nobody from OGBONI ZONE can wrestle power with the Ukuta’s. This is the new strategy to give Hon. John Ukuta the PDP ticket for 3rd tenure. I was called that when I was mentioning his name to help his people intervene in the case of Cornell ‘s nomination, that he was celebrating it as a welcome development. PDP believes in power recycling and anybody who is playing politics without considering how to actualize his interest is wasting his time, and if you don’t see a clear road to actualize your interest and you are still following, you have not started. If you joined PDP in 2007 till date just note it that it is 12 wasted years for you, because I know you have not occupied any sensitive position. Their new style now is that they want to make sure that anybody who is not a graduate will not be their WARD CHAIRMAN LOL.
With what I have seen so far Uzo-Uwani is for APC come 2019. APC is the only party in Uzo-Uwani that is liberal to involve everybody. APC don’t recycle power, we equate it to suit everybody. PDP weak points is APC power points in Uzo-Uwani. Feel free, don’t be ashamed of yourself, come and join APC lets do this fight together because it is our collective problem that need to be solved. #respect
