2025: Ifeanyi Ubah Will Fix Anambra Without Big Grammar -- Owelle Mbaso


The senior legislative aide to the senate president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and convener Anambra former political appointees, Hon. Owelle Onyeka Mbaso has said that Sen. Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah will fix Anambra state without speaking big grammar. 

Mbaso stated this during an exclusive interview with this journalist Raymond Ozoji. 

Mbaso who is currently a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra State, described the incumbent governor as someone who talks too much saying both the things he can do and things he can not do. 

Mbaso however maintained that Ifeanyi Ubah is coming to fix Anambra state with less talks as he believes actions speak louder than words. 

He therefore told this journalist that since 2019 Ubah made an inroad into the Red Chambers, he has become a working senator; doing everything he promised he will do, stressing that Ubah doesn't believe in long grammar. 

He said Anambra State needs a governor that will do the working and not talking too much. That what the state needs is good governance and not grandiloquence. 

Mbaso noted that evidence of Ifeanyi Ubah's uncommon patriotism, generosity and philanthropy to Anambra-South and Anambra State can not be overstressed because according to him, every political ward in all the communities of Anambra-South got solar lights from the senator. 

The senate president's senior legislative aide equally stated that Ubah has tackled insecurity in Anambra-South senatorial zone and that the people of the zone are happy with him because he is working and they are seeing the results. 

Mbaso who was a senior special assistant on political matters during ex-governor Willie Obiano's regime, disclosed further that Ifeanyi Ubah is currently constructing roads in all the communities of Anambra-South, emphasizing that Ifeanyi Ubah is the best senator so far. 

Mbaso was equally of the opinion that the advent of Sen. Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah into the All Progressives Congress has rejuvenated as well as reenergized Anambra APC which the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and other opposition parties believed was dead on arrival, adding that APC is now a brand in Anambra state.

The former APGA chieftain maintained that they believe very strongly in the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu's ideaology but the incumbent governor, according to him, is playing PDP giving the impression of the more you look, the less you see. 

The Nnewi-born astute politician also talked about a forthcoming town hall meeting of former political appointees with Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah slated for 30th June this year. 

He told this journalist that in the spirit of continuity, former political appointees have pleaded with the governor to pay them their statutory severance package but the governor, according to him, said no, that he will not pay it. 

He said Ifeanyi Ubah heard about the plight of the former political appointees and decided to come to their aid. He also stated that former political appointees of the Obiano administration will endorse Ubah's gubernatorial ambition and work assiduously for its fruition. 

Mbaso said former political appointees will make sure they stopped Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo from getting a second term because he has proven to them that he lacked gratitude as they toiled day and night to make him governor. 

Reacting to Mbaso's claims, press secretary to the governor, Mr. Christian Aburime, said Ifeanyi Ubah knows he is nowhere close to Governor Charles Chukwuma Soludo in terms of capacity, leadership and what have you, describing Owelle Onyeka Mbaso and his cronies as rabble-rousers.

Although Aburime said government will not join issues with Ifeanyi Ubah and his messengers of rifts but advised them to go round the 21 Local Government Areas of the state and see what the governor is doing in their respective communities. 



Nobody Has Represented Aguata 2 Constituency Like Tony Muobike --- Citizens Declare


It was a rousing session on Sunday 16th June, 2024 at Orton Palace Hotel Ekwulobia Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State as Hon. Tony Ifedilichukwu Muobike mesmerized his constituents with a one year account of stewardship which they all endorsed as the best in the history of political representation of Aguata 2 state constituency. 

The constituents who listened with avid attentiveness as the lawmaker reeled out his achievements in the last one year were apparently overwhelmed and happy with Tony Muobike's scorecard, saying in one accord that nobody has represented the constituency like him; describing him as a good man and one who understands the felt needs as well as pressing needs of the people. 

Tony Muobike's constituency briefing which featured free enrollment of 350 citizens into the Anambra State Health Insurance Scheme, was also interactive enabling the lawmaker to obtain feedbacks and useful suggestions from his constituents on how to serve them better in the House of Assembly. 

The constituency briefing cum town hall meeting which was chaired by a political icon and diehard APGA faithful in the area Hon. Titus Anigbogu was equally attended by the TC chairman of Aguata council area Hon. Dr. Chibueze Ofobike, the APGA state woman leader Hon. Mrs. Esther Onyekesi, royal fathers of Isuofia, Umuona, Igboukwu, Ekwulobia together with other very important personalities. 

It was indeed a day with Tony Muobike as his constituents took turns to give eloquent testimonies of what the lawmaker has attracted to their respective communities in the last one year. 

Hence His Royal Highness Igwe Col. Christopher Moghalu, the traditional ruler of Isuofia community, said he was at the town hall meeting to witness the lawmaker's account of stewardship and therefore stated emphatically that Tony Muobike performed beyond his expectations. 

Igwe Moghalu who made very excellent remarks about his constituency representative, also gave him kudos and endorsed him for a second term in the House of Assembly or a higher office, saying that Tony Muobike deserves it judging from what he has seen so far. 

Barr. Anthony Ezekwuonna, an indigene of Ekwulobia and former Director-General Tony Muobike Campaign Organisation, told this journalist that the lawmaker's scorecard presentation cuts across the entire Aguata local government area and not limited to his constituency alone. 

Ezekwuonna noted that Tony Muobike doesn't discriminate neither does he concentrate only on Aguata 2 constituency but he extends the dividends of democracy to all the nooks and crannies of Aguata council area. 

Ezekwuonna also known as Onowu Ekwulobia maintained that they know Tony Muobike's antecedents as someone with an impeccable character and burning desire to serve humanity; that he believes the lawmaker will do more for Ndi-Aguata. 

He however pointed out that endorsement for another tenure of office for Tony Muobike is an understatement. That the emphasis now is after his second term, where else is the lawmaker headed because he has come to serve the people. 

Mrs. Sybil Nduka who hails from Aguluezechukwu in Aguata council area, said they would not waste a second to vote for Tony Muobike, if he declares to run for a second term. Mrs. Nduka who described the legislator as a bulldozer, said in just one year, Tony Muobike has done so much for the constituency.

 She said the lawmaker built toilet facilities at Aguluezechukwu Community Secondary School and prevented the children from going to toilet in the forest.She said they would campaign for him in the next election and he would win. 

Again, Miss Charity Achu from Isuofia community affirmed that Tony Muobike has touched every community in Aguata 2 state constituency. She said Muobike has really tried judging from his achievements in the past one year even as she equally encouraged the lawmaker to increase the tempo of his developmental efforts in the coming years. 

Meanwhile the TC Chairman Aguata Local Government Area Hon. Dr. Chibueze Ofobike noted that the lawmaker has done excellently well in the last one year in terms of delivering his campaign promises.

 Ofobike said the lawmaker has done very well in human capital development, bills and motions and a host of other areas, stressing that Tony Muobike has been able to bridge the gap and disconnect  between the people and the government. 

He said it was the first time they witnessed such style of representation at the House of Assembly , adding that if the lawmaker continues in his trajectory, they would see more vision-based legislations and his activities would translate to the betterment of the lives of ndi-Aguata. 

Hon. Okeke Okoloako Vitalis, chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Aguata Local Government Area, said he was not surprised at the outstanding performance of Hon. Tony Ifedilichukwu Muobike because APGA, according to him, always produced quality brands who will meet and even surpass expectations of the people as seen in the lawmaker's account of stewardship. 

A member of the Anambra State Judicial Service Commission, Hon. Victor Ezeoke, who hails from Aguata 1 state constituency, described the Aguata 2 constituency representative as a pacesetter and that what he has done in the past one year were unprecedented as no parliament member has ever done such in the area. That it is only when you have something tangible to present to your people that you can call for a town hall meeting in just one year.

For the traditional ruler of Igboukwu ancient kingdom, Igwe Alexander Ejikeemeuwa, said from the reports available to him Tony Muobike has done very well but he also admonished him to touch other communities in the constituency. 

Igwe Ejikeemeuwa who maintained that all those representing Aguata in government currently were all doing exceedingly well, said he would score Tony Muobike above 75% because he performed beyond their expectations in just one year with milestone achievements.
