A very close source to the Executive Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano alerted me on the siege laid at the precincts of government house by some APGA GUBER ASPIRANTS from Imo state. This crop of politicians, feather weighted, underfunded and obviously mischievous are on designated mission.

A very close source to the Executive Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano alerted me on the siege laid at the precincts of government house by some APGA GUBER ASPIRANTS from Imo state. This crop of politicians, feather weighted, underfunded and obviously mischievous are on designated mission.

What they wouldn't get in Imo state is what they want to curry from Anambra. Realizing how important and strategic Anambra is to their ambition and also bearing in mind that Chief Willie Obiano would have a deliberative vote on who would fly the flag of the party in the next election, Imo politicians, and throng to Awka with a view to showcasing their strengths.
One may not ordinarily take exception to these movements to and fro Awka if the mission were to be helpful to Imo. Awka bound visitors have brought Imo APGA down her knees. The impression they have created, albeit sustained is that of a party in disarray, with no leadership, no coordination and with no proper gluing elements. Their guests in Awka are complaining already. The stock and wares of the visitors are enmeshed in fibres of lies, character assassinations and tissues of snips aimed at cutting to improper sizes all their competitors in the race
Most of these Awka PILGRIMS have no structures, no funds and no ascertainable political program. Their desire is to ensure that Ikedi Ohakim doesn't get the party ticket. Nocturnal visits made have a clear mission: to project Ikedi Ohakim as a candidate with no political  gut and  followership. Rather than steering courses capable of heating their electoral wards and which may possibly qualify them for state assembly seats, these Lilliputians overate themselves, with eyeballs set towards Douglas road. They forget so easily that Awka would support the only candidate who has the experience, the name, the structure, the funds, and the political Goodwill to prosecute gubernatorial battle against a sitting governor in dire need of security/immunity.
Funds that would ordinarily been used to build APGA structures in their wards are  lined into the pockets of aides, security guards, and emissaries of top politicians and businessmen in Awka. Having abandoned local politics for unnecessary horseracing and name-dropping mission in Awka, these troubleshooters, bootlickers and daxed politicians are having permanent suites in choice hotels opposite Awka govt house.
Anambra laughs as our political economy empties into her coffers. Willie Obiano is fed up. National Working Committee of APGA is bewildered. Politicians and wealthy men from Awka have decided to tag stronger chains round their vaults, because these unknown politicians from Imo state also need funding from Awka. They would qualify if they prove stautness, loyal and grass root acceptance. And to meet up with the requirements, they reach out to the throats of their obviously more grounded opponents.
I regret this puerility. Only one out of the 27 in APGA would fly the ticket. Those who will never win their wards are the ones spoiling the show for the serious one. The pretenders are prowling. But I have a relief in sight. I am consoled with the realization that soon, very soon, APGA would drop the bombshell. 10million naira for guber form!!! This would separate men from boys. The long list would be pruned and these trouble makers would seek for alignment and integration into camps they  tried to take down.
I advise guber ASPIRANTS to respect themselves. We are making contacts that would reveal the volume of these visits and the details of these unhealthy movements. We are very much likely to publish our findings if these Imo APGA GUBER ASPIRANTS fail to have a rethink.   
Let APGA close ranks!!! This might be the last opportunity for the party to clinch the seat of govt in Imo state.
