Okies i heard Dr Ifeanyi Ubah is set to contest for governor of Anambra state under APC
First of all i had to contact a close friend who works closely with him to confirm, he said i should wait for an announcement
While i wait, feelers are high that it is true
Dr Ifeanyi Ubah is a good man, i have worked with him in the past, he has all the right to chose a party of his choice, but in my opinion joining APC is a very wrong move.
First of all the current economic hardship in Nigeria is attributed to APC and this will work against him especially when the incumbent Governor is doing very well economically with the state, i dont think Anambra people will want to go backwards, they will rather want to move forward, so Dr Ifeanyi Ubah best ideas and innovation will be dwarfed by the idea that APC means recession
Secondly and most importantly the biafran struggle, our eastern brothers are very angered against this government with how it has handled Kanu's case and see it as a fight against the igbo race, they see the government as their enemy and now Dr Ifeanyi Ubah will even be a greater enemy and may be labeled a traitor, the Amaechi/Dakuku APC Rivers case should teach us a lesson, Dakuku was a good man in a wrong party.
Thirdly this government has not favoured those from the east with appointments, this is not hidden and has been widely publicised, so those that do not agree on the biafra agitation will hold this against the party at the center, thus anyone under their platform will have a taste of the venom from the indigenes to prove a fact
Notice, all i have said has nothing to do with Dr Ifeanyi Ubah as a person but his association with a party especially in a State where it has relatively no presence, in my opinion this is the wrongest move from the Dr.
As a person i would love to see Dr Ifeanyi Ubah in top position in the state, a man with massive ideas, young at heart, a hard worker and a great networker, see what he has done with Ifeanyi ubah FC, but its a shame that even before the game begins i forsee a massive loss, trust me Federal might will not trump the will of the people, we will only have a repeat of Rivers State, but the people will prevail.
So those that have his ears, should please wisper to him, that a concerned citizen of Nigeria is appealing he does not end his governorship aspirations before it even starts.
