*How Ebele shouted down Speaker Rita Maduagwu; as Igwe of Ukpor stood up to walk out on First Lady
Information coming from Ukpor, the home town of the embattled Speaker of the Anambra State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Maduagwu Rita as gathered by APGA Interactive Forum Media indicates that the wife of Gov Obiano, Mrs Ebele Obiano was yesterday humiliated at Ukpor when she paid a visit to the community, as part of her ongoing community tour.
It was gathered that Osodieme was caught lying to the people on the projects Obiano executed at Ukpor.
The trouble started when the gov’s wife in company of Madam Speaker and in the presence of Igwe of the town and other dignitaries told Ndi Ukpor that Governor Obiano constructed the Nkwo Oha market, Ukpor.
Spontaneously, a strong chieftain of APGA Ukpor from Amihe ward, Chief Osigwe Aghochukwu who adorned APGA uniform stood up and shouted, “Madam, it is a lie”.
On hearing, “Madam it is a lie”, Osodieme paused, walked to the man and said, “what did you just say, repeat what you said”, and chief Osigwe bodily repeated, “It is a lie”.
At this point, the governor’s wife lost control and thoroughly abused the man. She called him all sorts of names and finally said, “you are a devil in APGA uniform”.
An eyewitness said that Osodieme who lost complete control of her temper, was so furious and kept abusing Ndi Ukpor when madam Speaker stood up and attempted to whisper to her, possibly to calm her down and got shocked when the first lady shouted at her embarrassingly.
“Sit down there, don’t dare come close to me”, Osodieme shouted at Madam Speaker.
Osodieme continued, “you allowed your youths to be writing rubbish against Obiano on internet and you are here again talking rubbish.”
At this point, the Igwe of Ukpor who could no longer bear the embarrassing drama, the abuse of his people by the wife of the governor stood up to leave.
It was at this point that Osodieme saw danger, seeing that the atmosphere was charged, she stopped and the event ended.
Obiano govt has formed the very bad habit of claiming people’s project. The Nkwo Oha Ukpor was constructed by Ndi Ukpor; government has no single contribution in it.
It was annoying that the governor’s wife will go to Ukpor and stand before the people to claim their project.
Recall that the Ukpor youths, in an open letter published on APGA Interactive Forum barred Obiano from coming to Ukpor to campaign, claiming that the governor did not do anything for their community.
The youths said they will embarrass him should he step into Ukpor for any campaign.
And yesterday, the governor’s wife sneaked into Ukpor to claim their project, and got open resistance and humiliation.
The people can no longer keep quiet in the face of lies, deceit and propaganda of this administration.
About a month ago, a Catholic Rev Father, Basil Anunobi also called Obiano’s govt a liar when his commissioner for works claimed that work was ongoing on a particular road when there was not even a grader on that road.
Ex gov Peter Obi had on many occasions warned Obiano to stop claiming his projects.
Hon Azubogu, representing Nnewi north and south and Ekwusigo federal constituency also had his project claimed too. The Sure-P water ambulance boats were also claimed.
The people are now standing up, to dare and expose their lies; Ndi Ukpor have taken lead.
