APGA Welcome Senator Princess Stella Oduah To Party
PRESS RELEASE [A POEM]
At the APGA THINK-TANK, NIGERIA, the carpet crossing was not a day too soon.
It was either today, tomorrow, next month,
Even next year, or any other year.
The A.P.G.A was always open for business.
From the backseat of the Senate,
The lone senator surveyed,
and beheld the ambience of the Senate,
A Hawk-eye view others walking into the wells of the Nigerian Senate came to admire,
Senator Victor Umeh inadvertently, had the best seat in the house
He saw all,
‘could mix and match,
even before the Sergeant-at-arms said, Order!
And gradually other Senators wanted that vantage perspective.
At the APGA THINK-TANK, NIGERIA, it is our opinion that steadfastness has its dividends.
We say bravo to the lone APGA Senator
for your dignity in the face of manmade odds.
As the APGA clawed back
from the wells of electoral despondence
Whether you knew it or not, it was your burden to carry,
We must opine that you have carried it well.
Through thick and thin, til’ this glorious moment.
And God said, it was not good for the man to be alone,
He made Woman.
A good woman of focus, substance, means,
thoughtful, thorough, bold, Fearless,
A projector of no mean feat
Senator Stella Oduah, You are welcome
At the APGA THINK-TANK, It is not the size of the representation
Rather the focus and quality.
It is a new dawn for the APGA Senate Caucus.
Adaeze, it is now your turn, to spread the good message,
of the committed, devoted, dedicated and reliable
You were one big fish the APGA needed to catch, have and hold,
And we are very glad you chose to swim to our net, finally.
The antecedents of 2015,
may they never repeat
Bygones, will be Bygones,
At the APGA THINK-TANK, NIGERA,
We recall nothing, but forgive everything
At the APGA THINK-TANK, NIGERIA,
We have no compunctions putting you on display.
Better in our camp than the others.
your presence gladdens the pragmatic in our politics.
Our electorate looks forward to the replication of the ideas, policies, infrastructure
which has made you a darling of our electorate.
May many more spew from your ardent mind.
We would also use this opportunity
to formally and belatedly welcome Barrister Uche Onyeagucha,
Imo State APGA’s lone member of the Federal House of Representatives in 2003
Your speech at Uturu gave you away
The APC was never the right camp for you
Your ideas made you seem out of place in that Godforsaken party.
The APGA THINK-TANK, NIGERIA welcomes you back
Let’s all work together, to uplift our electorate in Nigeria.
Once again, Welcome.
And good riddance to Reagan Ufomba
A rabble-rouser of the first order
He was never one of us.
We would also remind the faithful
that the APGA THINK-TANK, NIGERIA does not propose or oppose for vanity,
Our friends and foes may not take our ethos for granted
60 million peoples hold firmly to those
It is the core of their being.
It is always there
It may look unkempt, .
Like an open sore,
You however, may not step on it
You may not dismiss it
It is precious.
The ethos of a people.
APGA THINK-TANK, NIGERIA
