“OFFICE OF THE DEPUTY SPEAKER, IMO STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY.
RE: FALSE AND WICKED ACCUSATION OF RT. HON. AMARA IWUANYANWU, OF “FAKE VOTERS’ REGISTRATION” BY THE OPPOSITION, USING IKENGA IMO UGOCHINYERE.
This is neither the first time nor the second time, Mr lmo IKenga Ugochinyere would attack the Deputy Speaker of the lmo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Amara lwuanyanwu for no justifiable reason, hiding under his position, for what should rightly be described as, THE SPOKESPERSON OF THE COALITION OF UNITED IMO PDP, instead of CUPP.
lnfact, what remains of the opposition in lmo State has, these days , become restless and reckless in dishing out unfounded lies against the 3R Government in the state and its apostles, obviously, because of the 2023 election which is around the corner.
They feel that, embarking on blackmail would save them from the roundly defeat that awaits them in the 2023 election .
This time, they have again decided to drag the name of the Deputy Speaker of the lmo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Amara lwuanyanwu, into their blackmail they normally call press conference , accusing the young man, exceptionaly loved by his people, of ” fake Voters Registration”.
Rt.Hon. lwuanyanwu is greatly loved by his people. He is always at home and on the same page with his beloved people of Nwangele State Constituency and would not have any reason to engage in fake Voters’ registration.
Those who have been following the political activities of the Deputy Speaker and who know the politics of Nwangele, would confirm that he would win his election convincingly in the state Constituency without pressure , any day , any time.
The Deputy Speaker’s village, Amuzi, is very close to Anara, a semi-urban centre with a lot of Hausa and Yoruba indigenes living and doing their businesses there. Amuzi is also part of the old lsu Ancient kingdom, equally housing Hausa Community at Nkwommiri Market, that has been there for decades.
So, for those familiar with this train , it would not be surprising, therefore, seeing some of these Hausa and Yoruba people registering at any of the polling units close to where they reside and do their businesses, including Amuzi in Dim- na -Nume ward, and following the massive campaign and enlightenment carried out in all the wards in Nwangele LGA , encouraging people to register.
Amara lwuanyanwu is too grounded to imagine fake registration. And if there is anything like fake registration in any of the mentioned polling units, INEC and the security agencies should investigate those behind the allegations .
There is nothing frustrated opposition is not capable of doing. They could be nasty just for the sake of blackmail. Otherwise, Mr Ugochinyere and his partners in this blackmail business would not have concluded that certain registrations were fake when no verification has been carried out to ascertain which registration is real or fake.
INEC and security agencies should also investigate the polling units of those talking about fake Voters’ registrations, because they could be the main culprits and only shouting about fake registrations to distract attention.
The Deputy Speaker has never been under any pressure in his politics for any reason, to make him, getting involved in any wrong action . The weighty and people -oriented legacies his father, Chief Chyna lwuanyanwu left behind and his own good works for which he enjoys massive goodwill in Nwangele State Constituency , have obviously become the envy of the opposition. Hence , this needless and wicked blackmail.
lt is also in public domain that the Deputy Speaker’s style of politics has endeared him to the People of his Constituency and he has always been a strong advocate of free and fair election. He believes that politics is not a do or die affair and plays his politics in line with that .
Finaly , the Deputy Speaker does not work in INEC. He does not have a relation who works in INEC. He was not INEC supervisor during the voters’ registration exercise to warrant anybody linking him up with anything in connection with the exercise, anywhere .
So, associating him with fake Voters’ registration was outright blackmail, done out of envy and politics of bad blood . The general public should therefore disregard the wicked and false accusation by the Candidates of the PDP, who are also the spokespersons of the Coalition of United lmo PDP.
