POLITICS OF DEFECTION, THE DEFECTOR AND THE EFFECTS.
,************UMANA MAKING A BIG MISTAKE.
Apparently Umana’s defection mean nothing and makes no sense to me. But my worry is the die hard supporters of his who are my political associates who are going to the wilderness with him.
Most of them have so far emptied their hopes and aspirations into umana’s ambition.
To me,going to APC is not and will never be the best option for umana and his followers because the same force that was dragging Udoedeghe is kinetic and centrifugal forces that is driving umana now and that seems to be a nolstagia for Uyo senatorial district people.
Howbeit,opposition is good yes but it makes more sense if you are opposition from day one.
If umana and the supporters who bulk of them are my very close associates are doubting me let them find out the effects from people like Udoedeghe, Don Etiebet ,Engr Anny Asikpo,Larry Esin,Udonsek,Andy Uba, Anie Okonkwo and several others who were at one time or the other cross carpet in quest for power.
Certainly, I don’t want to preempt umana’s reasons for cross carpeting but I can finger point that is the wish of the people then I ask,”who are the people”?
Honestly I don’t have the moral justification to question umana’s rational to move to APC but as someone who has been on ground as a grassroot mobilizer,youth activist ,youth advocate and and a leader who is very co versant with cases associated with defections.
Let check out the last APC convention where Amechi and Okorocha were said to be having their individual candidates on who becomes their national chairman all of us saw the power play and finally Oshomole’s candidate won just because Oshomole has been an opposition abinitio .that’s the kind of politics we play in Africa.
He should also ask people like Ararume, undenwa ,Adamu Aliero,even peter Obi what it feels like going to an opposition you victimised.
To me,what I see there is quest for power nothing more nothing less cos if you are telling me is services to humanly I totally disagree with you cos you can’t built something over nothing. You cannot fight the system from a distance, you stay within and fight the abnormalities that has encroach the system.
As a loyal party man,I have decided to stay in the party and fight for what is right.
Well let’s see how the broom will accommodate umana and Udoedeghe
because that will be amaggedon part two as both men are so hungry and tasty for power one as a means of retribution and on the other hand real power.
Well I will write to you again after Thursday.
So stick around.
