In my primary school days, a pupil boy was asked to explain the adage 'Once bitten, twice shy' and, he struggled in his staggering capacity to say that 'when your fellow pupil bits" you, you do not have to come to school for two days, to avoid being shy twice before other pupils'.

In my primary school days, a pupil boy was asked to explain the adage 'Once bitten, twice shy' and, he struggled in his staggering capacity to say that 'when your fellow pupil bits" you, you do not have to come to school for two days, to avoid being shy twice before other pupils'.

This raised laughter and mockery and we thank God that the teacher came up with enlightenment on the adage. One now begins to wonder if the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) should need a teacher to broaden the minds of her leadership and officials on the adage.
APGA was almost ruined in chaos prior to the 2015 governorship election in Imo. A particular governorship aspirant in the party in 2015 who has also shown interest this time ahead of 2019 reportedly reeled out crisis that sure scattered the workability of the party; it was sad that APGA never even won in the ward of their Flag bearer. Why would it win in the glare of such crisis?
 This is overwhelmingly preposterous. My question is if it is the same governorship aspirant in APGA that recently in 2018 donated vans as gifts to APGA leadership and officials? Is that on the same/premise? Should APGA not be skeptical and paranoid about such character? Will he not do a similar thing after the party primary? Is he acting out a script to deprive the party of victory? Is he walking on the part of the proverb that says — Beware of the Greek bearing gift? APGA should recall that the Greek gift is a translation of Timeo Danaos et Done Farentes. Danaos is an archaic name for Greek, A reference to the Trojan War.
Yea, the Greek pretended to abandon the war and left the Trojan horse behind allegedly as an offering / gift to the gods. The Horse was actually a trap. A Trojan priest saw the Horse and understood its significance so he cried out "Do not trust the Greek even if they left us a gift? On this note I am shouting in the same manner to APGA ......' Do not trust the givers of Greek gifts'. This party APGA should live above such gimmicks going by the records. APGA should avoid such skirmishing manouvres intended to cause wrangling that can destroy the image of the party before the election proper. This is a serious matter; it is time APGA read the handwriting on the wall. I have it as a duty to raise the claim in order to inject good governance in our state. You never can tell. I must, as a stakeholder in my state stretch out to give room for good governance and help fish out the agents sponsored to act out scripts of destruction.
More to this, and based on my findings is that the vans donated to the party are old model ford whose parts are scarce and after that, it is now an open secret that the vans will die mechanically in the hands of the vulnerable (not gullible) receivers and that its duration may not exceed November 2018, probably targeted at the post-primary period. If any governorship aspirant has his secret games up his sleeves and is planning to use it when he fails to fly at the primaries then APGA should be beware of the Greek gift, no matter whose Ox is gored. The party has credible aspirants and even who are technocrats and should look inwards to avoid repeated calamity. So who gave APGA officials the Greek gifts?
