SUNDAYS ARE FOR TESTIMONIES !!!

Orlu LGA , Imo State
It was all praises galore last Friday , 12th October , 2018, at the Ogwuaga Abba Palatial Grace Villia of a foremost Philanthropist , humanist , business maverick , oil magnet , road construction giant and political master strategist , High Chief Johnbosco Ozigbu , PhD (Ogwuaga of Ogwuaga ); as he empowered the 10 women leaders across the 11 wards in Nwangele LGA with brand new latest motorcycles from Osaka Japan except , Maureen Chimara . An August gift and empowerment scheme which rather came to the beneficiaries as a surprise package .
Speaking during the official handover of the motorcycles and gigantic generating set to the women , Ogwuaga of Ogwuaga expressed that even though he is not an elected official of government , he would continue to use his God given human and material resources including his social contacts to keep reaching out to the less privilege as well as fill the obvious gap of empowerment and development program created by elected and appointed officials of government , majority of whom have failed in both their elective and legislative duties ; pointing accusing fingers at Rt. Hon. Jones Onyereri as a culprit .
The elated Chief Ozigbu ; the Ariri Erimba of Obowo , thanked Nwangele PDP women leaders for their show of support , loyalty , love and reposing confidence in his consistent leadership style over the years ; while urging them to eschew all forms of intimidation from any politician as he has resolved to keep fighting for their rights and also defend their genuine cause for political emancipation and equal participation in the scheme of things , he maintained .
While speaking to the correspondent of 4thEstateReporters.com , the woman leader of Amalgbo Ward 5 , Mrs. Ngozi Amaechi expressed deep gratitude to their Apex leader , Chief Johnbosco Ozigbu , for his act of magnanimity and show of benevolence describing it as a pleasant surprise as the women were not expecting such gifts so soon after the promise was made fortnight ago .
She also advised women from other LGAs within the Federal Constituency to be firmly rooted in supporting honest and sincere leaders who mean well for them , while encouraging leaders to borrow a leaf from the exemplary and exceptional leadership style of Chief Johnbosco Ozigbu – the Apex leader of Nwangele LGA .
However , mixed feelings and reactions from the avalanche of leaders present trailed the gift presentation by Chief Johnbosco Ozigbub when he remarked that : ‘One Honourable Jones’ representing Nkwerre , Isu , Nwangele and Njaba Federal Constituency threatened to sanction Nwangele women leaders for voting against his directives during the governorship , Senatorial, House of Representatives and State House of Assembly primary elections .
In swift response , Nze Chibuike Achigbu (Aka Shaa Nwata ) ; PDP Apex leader in Nkwerre LGA and Hon. Maureen Chimara ; Women leader of Nwangele LGA rebuffed the weighty allegation of a political sanction against Nwangele women by Rt. Hon. Jones Onyereri even as they maintained that a peace talk or truce should be urgently brokered between the two powerful leaders .
Nonetheless , those who appeared neutral in the seeming rift between the two former political allies include Hon. Chinasa Nwaneri , SA to Sen. Hope Uzodinma , High Chief Charles Orie : A Traditional Prime Minister from the Oil Rich Kingdom , a former Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly , Rt. Hon. Godfrey Dikeocha amongst others .
MY STAND :
Iam of the strongest opinion that a delegation of respected PDP leaders from our Federal Constituency and across the Senatorial Zone should be constituted to broker a truce between these two illustrious sons of Imo State , Rt. Hon. Jones Onyereri and High Chief Johnbosco Ozigbu .
While the Federal lawmaker and Senatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party , Rt. Hon. Jones Onyereri has become the toast and darling of the masses at the grassroots , it is also worthy to note that Ogwuaga of Ogwuaga is greatly loved by the people and commands a wide spectrum of followership in the Federal Constituency and across the Senatorial Zone .
A man of his class ; super richly blessed and with high level of contacts should not be taken for granted in political permutation and calculation .
Outside one or two political viruses around him , Ogwuaga of Ogwuaga is an amazing leader who listens and invests in any project he believes in .
His strategic role in the emergence of Rt. Hon. Jones Onyereri during his reelection bid cannot be over emphasised .
4thEstateReporters.com authoritatively gathered that a popular governorship candidate in the state paid the Ogwuaga Abba born Oil Magnet turned Philanthropist a private visit at his Port Harcourt Multi-Billion Naira Grapik Group Ltd, last week .
However , Iam of the candid opinion that Rt. Hon. Jones Onyereri follows suit , even as I advise Chief Johnbosco Ozigbu to be willing to genuinely accept the political olive tree as he demonstrated last Saturday between him and Hon. Chief Benjamin Azike .
Anybody advising the two leaders otherwise should be seen as a political virus ; a green sake in the green grass .
The Peoples Democratic Party in Nwangele LGA , Federal Constituency , Senatorial Zone and Imo State, needs these two powerful leaders to record success in their political jurisdiction where they have circle of great influence .
Ogwuaga of Ogwuaga is a powerful grassroots mobilizer who has both the financial capacity , strength of character , mass appeal and national spread to get executed any assigned tasks .
His influence and impact are two powerful instruments that should not be traded for anything at this point.
As for your empowerment to Nwangele PDP women leaders , God bless you Sir .
