… cautions against violence poll, other issues
A psychic and healer, Chief Mrs Flora Nkemakonam Ilonzo has appealed to contestants and political parties in Anambra State 2021 governorship poll to abide by the zoning formula if it has been in existence in the state.
Anambra South senatorial zone had been clamouring that it was its turn to produce the successor of Governor Willie Obiano, who hails from Anambra North. Former Governors Peter Obi and Chris Ngige were respectively from Anambra Central, a reason why the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), was canvassing for South to produce a governor, while other parties like People’s Democratic Party (PDP) were against zoning.
Ilonzo, the founder of Centre for Psychic and Healing Administration (CPHA), Awka, while addressing an international Igbo day cultural festivity hailed at USA via zoom network, and monitored by our reporter, said it was necessary the state maintain zoning for equity and peace to reign.
“I am begging political parties to go back to drawing board. If zoning formula has been in section, let us maintain it. I am not a politician. I am a psychic and healer. I see people who are planning to kill and cause violence. They should be careful and keep off. If not, they will meet their Waterloo. What we want is peace to reign. You can’t get anywhere with violence. The price of every action you take awaits you. Our people should also try to get a committee of former governors forum. This will help us to easily relate in one voice. Igbo need one voice to make peace to reign,” she stated.
Ilonzo, while considering the abandoned projects in the geopolitical zone, appealed to political leaders to be completing inherited projects before embarking on new ones.
“We have a lot of legacy projects constructed by government of old Eastern states, old Anambra and Imo States and former governors all over the region some of which have been abandoned to rot by successive governments. I am begging our leaders to look into these and see how to revive them. They will help to create more jobs for our people. Some are agricultural produce that can even help in health and other purposes. We know that our food is our health,” she added.
On some African Americans returnees recently accepted to Igbo land, Ilonzo advised governors of South East geopolitical zone to either provide lands for the returnees to be integrated or liase with other stakeholders like President General and Traditional rulers to ensure they were integrated in their communities.
“I am appealing to our people who had one male or one female in their family or lineage to bring those of our people as their brothers. Some of the things happening to some families are because their ancestors sold their beloved. Some of those sold died on the trip, some killed for one thing or another. This is why some homes have only a male or female. Some homes are facing other challenges like giving birth to embeciles, and so on. I am appealing to our people to help by bringing our African Americans that have identified Igbo as their roots through DNA. Family whose ancestors sold anyone should bring them home and adopt them as their brother or sister, accommodate and allow them to complete or full rights and privileges as their siblings. That will help to apease the God and thereby save our land. It is not affecting those families alone. It is affecting the entire Igbo race. I would have done that if not that I gave out 8 plots of lands to the less privileged in 2017. I don’t have much to provide them. But if they can come to my centre, I will help them to locate their real families. I have some plants in my herbal gardens they can use to wash their heads after which they will remember and locate where they come from. The herbal has other benefits.
On coronavirus, the herbalist who has different species of plants in her centre, enjoined people to be taken a tip of red oil early morning daily, as well as consume lots of fruits and vegetables to stay healthy and safe.
