Anambra Governorship!!! As candidate Ezeemo praises Nnamdi Kanu and identifies his problem...




From Odogwu Emeka Odogwu, Awka Governorship candidate of the Progressive People's Alliance (PPA) in Anambra State, Mr Godwin Chukwunaenye Ezeemo yesterday expressed respect and admiration for Nnamdi Kanu's sacrificial acts for the cause of Ndigbo.

Ezeemo however said Kanu and most Igbos are yet to realise that past Igbo leaders and elders are more to blame for the backward state of things in their region. 


Speaking while addressing a group of students drawn from Federal Polytechnic, Oko and Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Igbariam, at his Umuchu office,  Ezeemo noted that the Igbo people are yet to appoint leaders who will hold their common interest over and above their selfish interest. 


"Our elites have not been sincere to us. We have had several chances at the federal level but we misused them due to selfishness and greed. Now that we do not have as much chance again, we are bickering that we are being marginalised. We are the ones marginalising ourselves by accommodating corrupt leaders among us," he said.


Ezeemo as well observed that the reason most school graduates are unemployable in Igboland is because the elders have aided and abetted cutting corners in school and the 'special centre' syndrome.


Ezeemo however admonished the youths to develop good character which he said was what made him excel in life despite his humble background. 


In his words, "Character is what we need among our youths recently. Any wealth that doesn't have a sound foundation is bound to fade away. The problem we have in these parts is deceit. If you cannot stand firmly in whatever you believe in, you are not going anywhere. Character is nurtured and developed. It is not inborn."

 Ezeemo said that his stay in the United Kingdom exposed him to the stigma the black man has attracted to himself among other races, because he has continued to indulge corrupt leaders and corrupt systems.



His words; "Your interest  is higher than mine because you have more time to spend here. Are we going to remain like this for the rest of our lives. When I arrived the shores of England in 1993, I saw how beautiful the place was and how our leaders used to bring their children to study there and stay for holidays. I could not understand it because it was obvious they controlled enough resources to make our land where they govern as comfortable as the western world. I told myself that I would not spend my whole life there but will come back here and be part of developing my place of birth. That all men are not equal is man-made. If we have love among ourselves, we would not be at this level. What we have is more than enough to make here a greener pasture."


Celestine Okolo, the leader of the group, in his vote of thanks, appreciated Ezeemo for inspiring them while reiterating his group's resolve to spread the message of a better Anambra under the governorship of Godwin Ezeemo to the entire Anambra youths. 


"My group and I are sick and tired of the situation of things but we find hope in a man like you. We have taken time to study you and compare your personality with those of other aspiring gubernatorial candidates and we have seen without an iota of doubt that you stand head and shoulder above the rest of them.  We have said we want to be part of history and have made ourselves available to make every sacrifice required in delivering you as the governor of Anambra State, come November 18, 2017," he said.
