UBIMA PEOPLE, THIS UNION OF WIKE, SIM AND I, IS FOR THE GOOD OF UBIMA
Both the elite of the Ubima and their hoi polloi, all told me to avail my proximate relationship with Dike ogwu, Gov Nyesom Ezenwo Wike – CON to appeal to him to fix the Ozuoha-Ubima road. I couldn’t let the Governor have rest. “Do it for my people”, was my mantra to him. To the shock of my life, none of the Ubima elite came home to vote for us. Even Amaechi and Omehia’s neglected and hunger ravaged people I do give money to, turned against me on that election day. Ubima!
Uneducated Ubima PDP folks are the people following me. They say, both Amaechi and Omehia have failed them. But that they believe in me, as their liberator. I told them, give me 100/100 votes for Siminalayi Fubara. And pray that I feature in that government. All you will hear is:
“This thing you are sharing, what of my Ubima people’s own? We have lawyers qualified to be Magistrates/Judges. Amaechi denied my people of it. If you can’t recognise my people, I will resign.
