One of the conspicuous contrivance or underlining factor in Nigerian political system today is the alignment and realignment bargaining. In a postmodern political culture, the principle of alignment and realignment are always predicated on the standpoint of common political philosophy and modus not on the basis of personal interest.

One of the conspicuous contrivance or underlining factor in Nigerian political system today is the alignment and realignment bargaining. In a postmodern political culture, the principle of alignment and realignment are always predicated on the standpoint of common political philosophy and modus not on the basis of personal interest.


In this era of revolutionary politics, the general interest of the people has always remained the salient factor or the fulcrum for any alignment or realignment bargaining, especially when men with respected pedigree and reputation are involved. In as much as summersault is always allowed in the political cheese-game but it should anchor strictly on justifiable principles.  When most Rev. Anthony Obinna, the metropolitan Archbishop of Owerri ecclesiastical province decided to summersault to senator Hope Uzodimma, APC governorship candidate in the state for now , many Imolites are yet to come out from the cocoon of perplexity surrounding such a mystery. This is simply because Archbishop Obinna had a soft-spot for APGA in the state. Infact he was seen as the boldest brand of the party. No doubt, as a reputable man of God, Archbishop is of cause at liberty to fall in love with any candidate of his choice. Even though some are of the opinion that he shouldn't deep his neck into the murky waters of politics especially Nigerian politics which many believe is like a rotten egg. But Archbishop may be of the opinion that when men of goodwill with fear of God are in leadership saddle the people rejoice. No doubt about this, but the truth is that no observable intercourse between this maxim and his recent LOVE for Senator Hope Uzodinma
One may wonder what might have made Archbishop Obinna to fall in love with Hope Uzodinma to the extent of making a summersault to support him. It sounds incredible that Archbishop Obinna now supporting senator Hope Uzodimma, the APC governorship candidate against his old LOVE, the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA. What must have made Archbishop to abandon APGA and its candidate for Hope Uzodimma? 
This is indeed very difficult to comprehend. Is Hope better than Ararume? What is so special about Hope that made Archbishop to recently fall in love with him against his old love APGA? . Well, one may equally say that the APGA debacle may be the reason. Although, supporting Araraume in a crises-engulfed APGA may be an effort in futility. But considering the circumstances surrounding the man HOPE UZODIMMA and everything about him, Oh yes!  I said everything about him; Archbishop Obinna should be the least person to be seen having anything to do with Senator Hope Uzodinma, even as Archbishop is working relentlessly to nominate Prof. Placid Njoku, Senator Hope Uzodinma's running mate.
Does it mean that Archbishop Obinna has reached a pact with Senator Hope Uzodinma? But the question here is, why is Archbishop rushing for Prof. Placid Njoku as Hope Uzodinma's running mate?  Everyone knows that Prof Placid Njoku is a close relative to Archbishop Obinna who has been working for him in Caritas University. Must Archbishop use Prof Placid Njoku, his relative, as Senator Hope Uzodinma's Running mate?  Prof Placid is not even a member of any political party not to talk of APC. He has never been seen in the political arena and has never been involved in Imo politics, nobody knows him except being a relative to Archbishop Obinna. He is not even a member of APC and has never supported the party. So why him where there are many stakeholders in the party. It will be most ideal for Archbishop to hands-off in this project for the sake of his name and the church because he has a name to protect. It will be dangerous and suicidal for him to continue to support Senator Hope Uzodinma and the plan of using Prof. Placid Njoku as Hope Uzodinma's Running mate.
