I won’t return to APGA, Ojukwu’s son tells Obiano

Son of Late Eze Igbo gburugburu and Ikemba Nnewi, Emeka Ojukwu Jr

Emeka Ojukwu,Jnr, the son of the late Igbo leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu, on Monday said he would not return to the All Progressive Grand Alliance.

Ojukwu dumped APGA for the All Progressives Congress on 15th November, 2017 during President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to Anambra State for the grand finale campaign of the APC candidate for the November 18 Anambra governorship election, Dr. Tony Nwoye.

Speaking with journalists in Awka, Anambra State on Monday, Ojukwu asked Governor Willie Obiano to stop disturbing his peace on the matter, describing the governor’s knocks on him on the issue as “infantile and ignorance of the working of the Nigerian politics.”

He said he was toeing his father’s steps in ensuring that the Igbo were launched back into the mainstream of the country.

Recalling how his father joined the defunct National Party of Nigeria shortly after he returned from exile in 1982 instead of the Nigeria Peoples Party, Ojukwu said the Igbo would not benefit anything by wallowing in sentiment.

He said, “I can afford to stay back in APGA and wallow in sentimental politics that the party belongs to the Igbo, but on the long run, what becomes of our tomorrow and place in the great Nigeria project, for which our forefathers laboured, invested their time, talent and even their blood?

“Which is preferable: to be a big fish in a small pond or a big fish in the ocean? Real champions are never afraid of the big league. That could be why late Dr. Chuba Okadigbo asserted that if you could not reason beyond ethnic sentiments, you are a liability to mankind. Ndigbo are not better off with emotional politics.”

Obiano was recently reported to have said that Emeka Ojukwu’s defection to the APC was of no consequence, as according to him, Ojukwu’s son had no political relevance in the state.

But for Ojukwu, “the governor is playing kindergarten politics.”

  3. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
