CHIEF BATOS NWADIKE AND THE MEDIA BROUHAHA WITH THE OPPOSITION:
- Njoku MacDonald Obinna
Owerri , Imo State
In the past few days now , the lmo cyber space has been awash with the ongoing media war between the major opposition party in the state , the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) , and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) under the Prosperity Government of Distinguished (Sen.) Hope Uzodinma.
While on air in a phone -in popular radio program – ‘Peoples Assembly ‘ on Hot Fm radio station , the immediate past Secretary to the Government of lmo State ; and a member of the 4th National Assembly (House of Representatives) , Hon (Barr.) Uche Onyeagucha , took the lmo state governor , Sen. Hope Uzodinma , to the cleaners by making unprintable , derogatory and uncomplimentary remarks which many stakeholders in the state across geopolitical zones have come out to condemn as such names do not befit the office and status of a governor of a state like lmo.
In gauging the reactions and mood of a number of lmo citizens who are not in support of this media fireworks and continued mudslinging nay smearing campaign of calumny between the both parties as most media hirelings are cashing into the space created by this social leadership cold war to directly cast aspersions on the person and office of a serving governor of an enlightened state like lmo ; even as these media hirelings through their sponsors are now rather in a hurry to judge the performance index of the Hope Uzodinma government within the First 100 Days in office ; without taking into cognizance the challenges of the time and realities on ground.
As a result , however , the duo of Njoku MacDonald Obinna ; Publisher of 4thestatereporters.com , and Chidiebube Okeoma ; Publisher of Okeomanews.com (Imo State Correspondent , The Punch newspapers ) , made out time this weekend to have separate interview sessions with the principal actors in the ongoing ‘ Political Melodrama and ‘ Media Brouhaha.’
In citing Robert Greene’s 33 Strategies of War, Chief Batos Nwadike (SA Political Matters to the lmo State governor) seems to have adopted political annihilation strategy by taking up the puerile media attacks and bullets from the opposition against his principal while staking his head to receive all the insults. ❗
Tomorrow , Chidiebube Okeoma shall complete the story with his own style of reportage as l have succeeded in laying some foundation for the storyline .
In sampling shreds of opinions on a number of trumped up charges and allegations against the Rebuild Imo Administration under Chief Emeka Ihedioha , the emergence of the new administration, its policy direction , the 3Rs cardinal agenda , recorded successes within 100 days in office , challenges and way forward .
Kindly wait for the full video interview on this space:
