At a time of charged political tensions in Imo State, a voice of reason have come up, to remind Imo politicians of their oneness, despite their political divides.
Former Secretary to the Imo State Government, and also a 2019 governorship aspirant of the Imo All Progressives Congress APC, Sir Jude Ejiogu, has taken it upon himself to remind Imo politicians of their oneness.
Ejiogu made this disclosure on his official Facebook page, where he urged Imo politicians to also realize that before the workings and intrigues of politics, they are all one.
Ejiogu’ s short but very insightful post reads as follows:
” Sometimes, we should look beyond politics to the bigger picture. Na ihe nile, anyi nile wu nwanne”
There he urged politicians of Imo State to look beybeyond politics at the bigger picture of their oneness.
Celebrated for his advocacy for politics without bitterness, Ejiogu was commended by all and sundry recently, for being the only politician from an opposing political formation in the state, to personally wish the former govenror of Imo State, Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha, birthday wishes.
Ejiogu would also be remembered for being one of a few that put their foot down, and resisted the nepotistic ideas of former govenror, Rochas Okorocha, saying Imo State from becoming an extension of Okorocha’ s family business.
The financial manager and former Chief of Staff to the Govenror, have always brought excellence to service, in whatever office he held while in public service.
The former banker was responsible for the payment of pensions at the start of Okorocha’ s regime, stating that as a product of pensioners, he would never be the one to sit on their entitlements.
After his removal from that office, Okorocha didn’ t pay pensions till the expiration of his tenure.
In Imo State today, the incumbent governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma, and his predecessor, Senator Rochas Okorocha, are at each other’ s political jugular, and their battle has started moving from political, to personal.
This is a time, the warring factions should pause, and pay attention to Sir Jude Ejiogu.
