Ebonyi Youth Why Are We Here? Why Still We Here?

By Oyoke Chukwuemeka (Fex-Born)

Why are we still in this political misery till now, are we enjoying the predicament the Wicked politicians subjected us to? If the answer is NO” then why are we acting as if we are comfortable with the way things are going in Ebonyi?

The political witch-hunt against prof. Odoh fascinated our interest in this Governorship election. We want to know why they are after him. He has narrowly escaped assassination attempts for 7good times. they killed his traditional ruler and accused him. All these contrived at stopping him at all means. This is a democracy, why do they want to stop him at all costs? What are they trying to hide from us?

They say” our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. We have seen how Ebonyi is plugged backwards. cultists, criminals, and war machinery get ample wages, while our best brains go begging, or streets Hawking.

Vote makes everyone the architect of either his fortune or dome. Are we going to continue drinking the poison because it’s served in our tribal cup?

The thinking man must oppose all cruel customs, no matter how deeply rooted in tribes or surrounded by a halo. When we have a choice, we must avoid bringing torment and injury into our lives out of tribalism. Because to do so is to renounce our manhood and shoulder a guilt that nothing justifies, for one way or the other we will be victims even when we think we are of the prey’s tribe. 

The worst evils which mankind has ever had to endure were inflicted by bad governments. And We must peacefully use the power of our vote and the strength of our numbers to demand good governance.

The deprivation and suffering, in Ebonyi, are due to bad government, lack of democracy, weak states, internal strife, and so on. And we the younger generation with one voice of unity, are saying, enough of brutality, poverty, corruption, and bad governance in Ebonyi.

We call on we’ll meaning Ebonyi indigenous who desire peace, growth, and sustainable advancement of the state to join us, to halt the food of the devil with our votes. We are the ones feeding the hyena that is biting us. Bad governments are elected by “good” citizens who don’t vote. 

Tomorrow 18th of March we are going to make a career of humanity by committing ourselves to the noble struggle for equal rights. As simple as it sounds, we all must try to be the best person we can: be by making the best choices, and by making the most of the opportunity we’ve been given. having seen a man with determination, to reshape, rewrite, and turn our dear state around with one voice of unity. In the person of prof.Ben Odoh.(APGA) We will vote for him as our lives depend on it.

Under Umahi as Governor and Hon. Nwaifuru as the speaker. No single employment for 8 years, shop owners at the meant market were reduced to beggars and Okada riders. They defrauded Ndu-Ebonyi at International market shop sales. Ebonyi government is filled with Umahis family members. Inter-tribal wars were instigated by the same people in all the communities in Ebonyi except the governor’s village.

Under Umahi/Nwaifuru
Freedom of speech was murdered
Civil servants were flogged.
National August meeting women flogged at peoples club.

Under Umahi/Nwaifuru investors were not attracted, rather they driveway the ones they meant with high taxation.
Coca-cola company was sent out of Ebonyi following high taxation which resulted in the companies in the other states sacking Ebonyi indigenes working under them. Today not even a single company is in Ebonyi, even sachets water is imported from Enugu to Ebonyi till this moment. We have seen how they are frustrating petty traders with high taxation, the worst of it all is the Ebubeagu killings, this list is endless.

And the same people want to continue from where they stopped, God forbid’ we the Ebonyi youths reject APC and their candidate. darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. APC and its agents have caused us so many miseries in Ebonyi and we are saying enough is enough. APC and PDP are the same criminals with different logos.

It’s Youth O: clock” Ebonyi Ndi Oma let’s do this together, and we will be grateful we did. vote for an APGA candidate as our next governor as we set to redeem Ebonyi state from Evil hands.

Remember Professor Ben Odoh resigned as SSG in protest, against bad government, when the majority of Council members were praise singers including Hon. Nwaifuru. 

Prof. Odoh is for the masses and it’s time for the masses to reciprocate, by voting for APGA.
