What we have now is a decadent and dependent economy; a rundown ranch. We can no longer provide jobs that will sustain our youths and guarantee meaningful future for them … can no longer put quality bread on the tables of most families.

Dr Chike Obidigbo, Osisioma Igbo nine, the Leader of Anyiagaba Political & Grassroots Association (APGA) in humility and sense of responsibility congratulates his followers, supporters, fans, Anyi Agaba members, political associates and opponents and the general public.
In his thank you message, Dr Obidigbo, who was APGA factional gubernatorial candidate in Anambra State, believed that despite the Supreme Court Judgement that God in His infinite Mercy will still provide another tested and trusted opportunity to serve and save the state, Igboland and indeed Nigeria.
Here is his Thank You message;
To All My Friends, Fans, Political Associates, Including Opponents,
I consider now the most appropriate time to say a big thank you for your support and assistance all through my brief but very eventful sojourn into the murky waters of Nigeria’s political terrain.
During this short period I was able to gather very interesting, exciting and useful experience that will shape my future relationships & activities. No knowledge is a waste. And every knowledge has its price. During my rather very intensive struggle I realised that politics is not as dirty as people assume after all. Rather its dirty people that’ve cornered our politics & are happily and greedily appropriating all the political benefits and privileges, including our commonwealth for themselves and their cronies, to the exclusion of the general public.
Over the past 50years we all know that the economy of the Igbo nation has been on a steady decline. Many factors are responsible for this, including but not limited to, evil imposition of poor quality and insensitive leadership from within and outside Igbo land, sustained by our collective indifference and our inability to raise alarm and objections; corruption with impunity on a very massive scale, with no checks and internal control mechanism; external (official)backing for the decimation of our economy and a surreptitiously planned diversion of Igbo energy & resources away from Igbo land.
What we have now is a decadent and dependent economy; a rundown ranch. We can no longer provide jobs that will sustain our youths and guarantee meaningful future for them within the Igbo enclave. Our economy can no longer put quality bread on the tables of most families.
When I accepted to run for the governorship of Anambra state my primary motive was to do whatever that was necessary and to spare no effort or cost to set our youths on the right course for self-rediscovery and self actualisation, and to prepare them to assume their role as the leaders of our tomorrow. This is what the Igbo nation, especially our youths, need now more than ever.
We may have lost the opportunity now but with our combined prayers, efforts, sincerity and clear head, especially of our suffering youths, God in His infinite mercy will still provide another tested & trusted opportunity through some other sources.
I thank you all for your massive support which I enjoyed immensely. Were it not for the desperate and evil conspiracy of agents of darkness we would’ve made it and we would have given Anambra state deserved quality and honest leadership.
Thank you all as we look up to God for a better future for all of us.
God Bless you all.
God Bless Anambra & Ndigbo.
Dr Chike Obidigbo (Osisioma Igbo)
