B. Apugo on T. A. Orji (2)
IS it not this same T. A. Orji, who as governor stopped the APC presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, from campaigning in Abia State? And to prove my loyalty to the party and especially Buhari, I and my teeming supporters physically stopped T. A. Orji from inflating the votes cast in Abia for the then PDP presidential candidate, Goodluck Jonathan, when he (T. A.) found out that Jonathan was losing the election despite the rigging perpetrated by T. A. in favour of Jonathan.
It was in view of my passion to look for somebody who will develop Abia State that made me as a member of PDP Board of Trustees (BoT) and one of the founders, I did not support Chief Onyema Ugochukwu, the PDP governorship candidate in Abia State in the 2007 general election. Rather, I supported T. A. Orji who ran on the platform of the Progressive People’s Alliance (PPA); thinking that he will develop the state, but he ended up being a total failure.
In line with my policy of not collecting money from people, it is important to remind T. A. that he brought huge amount of money to me at my Umuahia-Ibeku residence while he was governor, even when I was contesting for the position of National Chairman of the PDP, I rejected the money, and asked him to use it to develop Abia. The letter he wrote to me dated February 11, 2008, and expressing his displeasure over my rejection of the money is hereby attached (to the initial publication from where I accessed this). I have not been found guilty anywhere in the world for any crime since I was born.
Furthermore, when I launched a book on Ibeku at Umuahia township stadium on November 5, 2006, the then governor Orji Uzor Kalu, who was T. A.’s political godfather, grabbed T. A.’s right hand, and handed him over to the former military President, General Ibrahim Babangida, who attended the ceremony in the company of several dignitaries, and asked Babangida to compel me (Prince Apugo) to help make T. A. the next governor of the state.
While T. A. knelt down at the stadium before me, Babangida in turn handed T. A. over to me, and asked me to help make T. A. governor.
Then, how much did T. A. pay me to help make him governor?
nTo be concluded next week.
AFTER I did an article, published in this medium on April 7, 2016 and THISDAY ON SUNDAY of April 10, this year, in response to a bovine TVC on AIT and a clownish advertorial in THISDAY of March 26, 2016, signed by Amara Umunna, Special Assistant, Media & Public Communications, Chief (Dr.) David Onuoha- Bourdex Senatorial Campaign Organisation, Dr. Alex Otti, the robbed governor of Abia State and a friend of mine, called me and profoundly elucidated on some of the issues I raised in the feedback. His robust intervention and very deep explications touched me.
Then on Saturday, April 16, this year, the same Amara wrote in THISDAY a despicably virulent rejoinder to my article. He scurrilously rehashed all the vicious fairy-tales, moonlight yarns and pub gossip about Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu. In the attack on Dr. Kalu, the rascally Amara charlatanistically used me as a spike.
It is obvious that Amara knows little or nothing about me—just by sheer referencing to my possible anitiquity in google usage! Amara should liaise with T. A. Orji and his vanishing co-travellers of yesteryear to know who this columnist is.
As a mark of respect for Dr. Otti, I will not respond to Amara’s stupefactious and mendacious outbursts. If I do, Amara’s boss may become worthless and that will irk Dr Otti, especially after our long telephonic engagement.
But for this handicap, I would have reacted to Amara’s idiocies line by line. I thank God for the capacity and competency to prospectively deal with a bohemian like Amara.
If not for Dr. Otti, I would have revealed a salacious clandestinity about Amara’s benefactor, among other things, unknown to Amara in addition to Umunna’s clinical dissection! For the civilization of Amara, there is no input from Dr. Kalu to all what I write concerning him because I am not an ordinary special assistant like you, but the Media Advisor to Dr. Kalu, which is testimonious of my verifiable scholastic antecedents and quintessential professional pedigree. Ask any cerebral mind who knows me or make institutional enquiries.
Unlike harebrained Amara, I never used rabid and foul serials, tirades, gutter verbiage, snipes or other forms of uncouth language on Dr. Bourdex. I wish Amara well in future bestial public communications in the justificatory enterprise of barbaric survivalism.
When a vacuous Amara deviates from issues to brazenly attack and audaciouly insult victims/personalities, it is confirmatory of intellectual deficiency and debility, shallowness and infantilism.
It is clear to me that Amara must have been misconceived, illbred and naturally mannerless. Otherwise, he will not be rude, speciously reckless, deviant and depraved in irresponsibly tomfooling about Dr. Kalu.
The point that the tiny tot nomenclatured Amara must internalize is that there is no basis whatsoever to compare Dr. Kalu and Dr. Bourdex as you cannot alter the parallelism of light (which Dr. Kalu represents) and darkness! Dr. Bourdex and other eminent Nigerians unassailably know this fact.
In summation, Dr. Kalu belittled and diminished himself by jostling for a district seat with the like of Mr. Mao Ohuabunwa and Dr. Bourdex when he should be playing in national and international arenas— not zonal/fringe politics.
As I round off this brief, Amara should know that volatile sauciness is the crown of a fool and is testamentary to the fool’s master as it speaks volumes of the fool’s principal.
All the other tantrums about Dr. Kalu and me stand dismissed lest I reprehensibly descend to Amara’s ignominous level!
