Arising from continual degeneration of apparatchik of government under governor Willie Obiano, who said he was not prepared for leadership but was called on phone while drinking champagne at his swimming pool overseas to become the governor, the wife, Mrs Ebelechukwu Obiano is now in charge.
The takeover of power is due to the non-challant attitude of the governor who, according to insiders, suffocate himself in illicit alcohol and find it difficult to control himself and focus on leadership.
It was gathered that the wife who knows about his drinking-and-acting stupor condition does not tolerate the presence of champagne drinkers around her husband and tells them off. But whenever she is not around, the drinkers’ partakers’ mates come around and the state suffers as nothing is achieved to move the State forward.
It was gathered that the looting of the State and the imposition and extortion of money from poor traders and citizens in the name of levies, fines and fees, competitive multiple taxation by both local government and agents of the Ministry on one and same item, business and business permit and hawkers permits and Okada permits, etc, are made possible during the ungodly period of drinking away Anambra’s money. Once they know the governor is under alcoholic influence, the next thing is to get him to give a go-ahead order.
Anambra stands to suffer. Money from federation account and local government are wastage and stashed away through proxies. Another day for the expose.
It is this untoward dimension of under-development of Anambra State, that the wife of the governor, Ebelchukwu Obiano, who characteristically of Onye-egbuwara isi (acting mad, that she “chakpo diya anya” (cowed the abachus hubby) and took over the mantle of leadership from him.
As at the time of writing, he is in charge with her hordes of inexperienced aides comprising of her relations, family friends, well-wishers, friends and colleagues Her first assignment was for the defacto lady governor Ebelechukwu Obiano to intervene in the ongoing strike action embarked by workers of the Anambra State Waste Management Agency (ASWAMA) under the leadership of his kinsman, Phil Chinwuba.
Based on her directive, the management and some workers were summoned to the governor’s Lodge on Friday, March 10, 2016 and after hearing from them, she told them that she was now in charge and to call off the strike and promise to clear the arrears of salary, source fuel and make things better for them.
Based on the new hope by the new governor Ebelechukwu Obiano, the strike was called off and she drove in a convoy of 30 vehicles followed by ASWAMA trucks and hilux jeeps round the State to show that he is now the new governor. After the show-off, she deployed her officials jeeps to streets and markets where the dustbins are kept and started clearing the, amidst deadly stench of alcohol, sorry odour emanating from them.
We welcome the new governor, but hope she does not lose steam so soon like her husband who came showing promises of a workaholic but got intoxicated by illicit aquatic liquid, trappings of power, self indulgencies and things on skirts.
Next report will be on emergency meeting of Concerned Elders and Leaders on how to save Anambra from total collapse under Obiano, who like Ceasar was frolicking while Rome burned.
From: Onyekaibu ……………. I stand to be counted.
