Rejoinder: Open Reply To Kenneth Uwadi

My brother Mr. Kenneth Uwadi, I have read your open letter to me dated 10th March 2011, entitled “An OpenLetter To Mr. Ikenna Samuelson Iwuoha and published in so many online news agencies.

Honestly I was not aware of this letter until my good friend and publisher of DESTINATIONNIGERIA.COM based in Netherlands called and informed me of your letter which he said he has already published. I
told him that I was in a Public Forum debate for Governorship Candidates in Imo State.

My brother, having gone through your letter I have been able to identify the following which I must address in this reply to you.

(1)I lied about my life being under threat from your Governor, Mr. Ikedi Ohakim
(2)My allegation of text message against Owelle Rochas Okorocha is false
(3)I accused Owelle Rochas Okorocha of having a killer squad
(4)That Ohakim’s developmental strides in Imo State speaks for him
(5That I falsely accused Mr. Ikedi Ohakim of flogging me.
(6)Nigerians see me as an irresponsible man.
(7)That I am campaigning for Senator Ifeanyi Araraume to become Governor.
(8)That Ohakim created 10,000 jobs and you are one of the beneficiaries.
(9)That Chief Achike Udenwa who fought Senator Ifeanyi Araraume is now campaigning for him.
(10)That Ikedi Ohakim must be re-elected.
(11)That I should amend my ways.

My brother Kenneth Uwadi, the above points are the contents or ingredients of your letter to me. In my usual way, I am now responding to them one after another so as to clear your doubts about my person
and it must be an “open reply” since you also wrote me an “Open Letter”.

(1)You accused me of feeding the public with false information about my life being under threat.
The simple truth is that my life was and is still under threat. As soon as my article entitled “Rochas! Rochas!! Rochas!!! How Many Times Did I Call You?”(Part One) was published, I started receiving
threat calls. Not from the camp of Owelle Rochas Okorocha but from the camp of your governor – Mr. Ikedi Ohakim. Infact a report was even made at the Imo Police Command against me by the Ohakim PDP
government. Also unusual movements of people were equally noticed around my residence. It is only a tree that you will threaten to cut down and it will remain where it is. Ikedi Ohakim is still plotting to
kill me. I know him too well.
(2)You accused me of falsely alerting the public about a certain
text message in circulation in Imo State and beyond against Owelle Rochas Okorocha using my name.
The truth is that Mr. Ikedi Ohakim and his corrupt government circulated a text message against Owelle Rochas Okorocha using my name as a cover. The text message was widely circulated in the state and
beyond. If I have anything against Rochas Okorocha, I will make it public through my well known channel and not through text messages. It is very childish for me to circulate bulk information to people through text messages. I have a vast network through which I can reach people. The heavenly truth is that the Ohakim government is behind that text message circulation against Rochas Okorocha.
(3)Again my brother Kenneth Uwadi, you accused me of saying that Owelle Rochas Okorocha owns a killer squad. In response to your debilitating accusation, I can only say that I never made such allegation against Owelle Rochas Okorocha. In my Rejoinder entitled “Text Message In Circulation”, I said  “Ohakim is constantly plotting to kill me, so he is exploiting the Rochas angle to give the impression that I have a war with Rochas so that he could strike me with his killer squad in order to deceive the public. Rochas
is not my enemy and cannot harm me all things being equal”. This simply means that Ohakim has a killer squad and not Rochas. This simply means that Ohakim wanted to deceive the public and give them the impression that I Citizen Ikenna Samuelson Iwuoha has a problem or at war with Rochas Okorocha so that if he (Ohakim) strikes me, the public will accuse Rochas of doing it. My accusation is directly to Ikedi
Ohakim and not to Rochas Okorocha.
(4)The fourth allegation you made is that “Ohakims developmental strides in Imo States Speaks for him”.
My brother Kenneth Uwadi, nothing can be further than the truth. Ikedi Ohakim is not developing Imo State. Rather he is exploiting and looting the resources of the state. Your conscience knows the truth.
Let me not over flog issues  here.
(5)Your fifth allegation against me in that I falsely accused Ikedi Ohakim of flogging me koboko at gun point. For you to insinuate this shows that you are not a true son of Imo State. If I had lied against Ikedi Ohakim I would have been in jail for falsely accusing a state governor. Almighty God knows that I am
saying the truth. May God judge your conscience and my own conscience accordingly. I know that you are a paid writer for Ikedi Ohakim but you must not allow your “support” for him to deceive you. May I never see anything good in this life if I wrongly accused Ohakim  of flogging me with koboko. Also may the same curse come to you if you are intentionally defending Ohakim in order to deceive the public? Amen.

(6)In your sixth allegation, you said that Nigerians now see me as an irresponsible man. How am I an irresponsible man? So anyone who steps out to challenge societal problems is an irresponsible man. Anyone who exposes corruption in our society is an irresponsible man. Anyone who exposes
evil in our society is an irresponsible man. Anyone who is fighting injustice is an irresponsible man.
My brother please go and find out who Ikenna Samuelson Iwuoha is. My life is  an open book. I have nothing to hide. Expose me if you discover anything negative or shady about me. But let me tell you something, I will continue to expose evil and evil men in our society. I have the capacity to do so. If that is your definition of an irresponsible man, then so be it.

(7)You also said that I am campaigning for Senator Ifeanyi Araraume to become the governor of Imo State. Like every political animal, I must be politically aware of my environment. You can’t force me to
support your Ikedi Ohakim, just as I can’t force you to support my Distinguished Senator Ifeanyi Araraume. My support for Araraume is an open knowledge. It is not a sycophantic support. Araraume is a good family man. He is very sound. My brother Kenneth Uwadi please come closer to him and you will know why Imo people are in love with him. I will continue to support and campaign for him. After all Late Chief Gani Fawehnnmi supported and campaigned for General Mohammadu Buhari. Also Bishop Desmond Tutu supported and campaigned for Dr. Nelson Mandela etc. “Eno Concern You.”
(8)You claimed that Ohakim created 10,000 jobs and that you are one of the “beneficiaries”. Let me state it emphatically that the so-called 10,000 jobs by Ikedi Ohakim is a fraud. There is nothing like 10,000 jobs in reality in Imo State. As for you being a “beneficiary” is another fraud because you
have been working in the government ministry for over three years now. And that you were recently transferred to the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy affairs. Just tell yourself the simple
(9)You also laboured in your letter to me to frown at why former governor Achike Udenwa who fought Senator Ifeanyi Araraume should now campaign for him. The truth is that Chief Dr. Achike Udenwa has seen the truth and light in Senator Ifeanyi Araraume. They were good friends before the unfortunate incident of 2007. They are together again today. Dr. Udenwa being an adult and former governor of the
state knows what is good for the people of Imo State hence he is personally marketing this political product called Distinguished Senator Ifeanyi Godwin Araraume.
(10)You also insisted that Ohakim must be re-elected. My brother Kenneth Uwadi, honestly I dey laugh oooooo. I still dey laugh oooooo. Hmmm tears don comot for my eyes. Did you attend the public Forum
debate for Governorship Candidates held in Owerri yesterday and organized by the Bishops of Owerri Ecclesiastical Province for Imo State? The Chief Hosts were (1)Most Rev. (Dr.) AJV Obinna (Bishop of Owerri Arch Diocese),  (2) Most Rev. (Dr) S Amatu (Bishop of Okigwe Diocese) (3) Most Rev. (Dr.) A.
Ukwuoma (Bishop of Orlu Diocese) (4) Rev. Msgr. T. Nwalo (Administrator of Ahiara  Diocese. Over 200,000 people attended the Public Forum held at the Obiri-Odenigbo at Assumpta Cathedral large premises. Your Governor could not even present himself properly to the people of the state. He
was openly booed at. He could not tell us his programmes for the state. He failed woefully to give account of his stewardship for the state. Out of 15 governorship candidates of various political parties
that attended the forum, only four(4) made great impact at that forum.
They are (1) Chief Robert Opara of DPP (2) Barrister Ike C. Ibe of SDMP (3) Owelle Rochas Okorocha of APGA (4) Distinguished Senator Ifeanyi Araraume of ACN.

Your “re-elected” governor woefully failed to make any impact. He could not withstand the intellectual capacity of the other  candidates especially the four earlier mentioned candidates. My bother, honestly
I just dey laugh ooooo. For your information, the governorship election in Imo State will never be rigged. It will be at least 75% free and fair. Ikedi Ohakim can never win the election full stop. Therefore if INEC and the police connives to rig it and declare Ohakim winner, Imo State will surely be on fire. Otokoto riot of 1996 in Owerri will be a child’s play. What happened in Romania in 1989 will
be a child’s play. What happened in Tunisia and Egypt in February 2011 will also be a child’s play. What is currently happening in Libya will be too infinitesimal when compared to what the people of Imo State
will do if INEC and Police connive with PDP to rig the governorship election in the state.

(11)You concluded your miserable letter to me by pleading with me to amend my ways. My brother Kenneth Uwadi; let me tell you one thing: I will fight Ikedi Ohakim to the last. My various reasons for fighting him are public knowledge. All the security agencies, Presidency and people of Nigeria know the reasons I am fighting Ohakim. If Ikedi Ohakim suddenly slumps dead today, I will still not forgive him. I will then come after his family and children. It is now a generational war. I have several court cases with him. Both the ones he instituted me and the ones I instituted against him. I will deal with Ikedi Ohakim. He will surely loose his useless immunity come MAY 29th 2011; thereafter I will engage him in a real street fight. Afterall the late Major General Mamman Vasta said, “When you start insulting yourself, other people will join to insult you”. I will deal with Ikedi Ohakim mercilessly and ruthlessly. He has not even seen anything yet. He must go to jail. He offended the wrong person.

So my brother Kenneth Uwadi when next you are writing, just try to be articulate and objective. You laboured so hard in the past to deceive the public with your write-ups, but my truth has remained constant. Please go and find out who I am. And please remember to vote for Senator Ifeanyi Godwin Araraume as the next Governor of Imo State.

Thanks and God bless.

Yours truly,
Citizen Ikenna Samuelson Iwuoha

News Release: PDP Cheap Blackmail Against Buhari

The attention of Buhari/Bakare Campaign has been drawn to an odious propaganda being spewed by the Peoples Democratic Party and the Goodluck Jonathan campaign on the vandalization of its campaign headquarters in Gombe. We have also gathered from our intelligence sources that the Jonathan camp has been going around prominent Nigerians to mobilize them to launch attack against the presidential candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change, General Muhammadu Buhari over the alleged attack.

We must alert Nigerians that the massive and unprecedented support the Buhari/Bakare campaign is getting all over Nigeria has put the Jonathan Camp in a quandary as it can only muster scanty spectators at its rallies in most venues in spite of the unconscionable bleeding of our treasury. This has brought in frustration and extreme desperation to blame Buhari for all their woes.

In the aftermath of the unfortunate bomb attack in Suleja during which some Nigerians lost their lives, the congenital incompetence running our national life showed up as one Mike Omeri from the Jonathan Campaign issued a statement that General Buhari should be held responsible for the incident. The statement was later hurriedly withdrawn from the media after a couple of journalists have sought our reaction to the content of the puerile and outrageously silly propaganda. This followed the pattern of un-presidential response of President Jonathan to the October 1 bombing in Abuja where the chief security officer of Nigeria turned to "jomo Gbo mo" absolving MEND even before security agencies could comb the scene. Till date a president who plays politics with security challenges has not told the nation who did it as he is only competent in blaming his opponent at each period .There is no better evidence of this cheap politicking than the fact that Raymond Dokpesi whom he arrested for the incident then is now back in his campaign. Dokpesi was at the time working for one of his opponents (IBB).

Now back to Gombe. General Buhari and his campaign team arrived Gombe on Wednesday to a thunderous reception at the airport. It took almost thirty minutes for him to disembark from the aircraft and a twenty minutes journey to the Emir of Gombe palace took two hours as the entire city was shut down. It was amazing to see PDP supporters in front of their office also chanting "Sai Buhari". It was therefore surprising to hear from Governor Danjuma Goje when we paid him a courtesy visit that the Jonathan Campaign office was vandalized by alleged CPC supporters. Though the Governor complained behind closed door, General Buhari brought up the issue at the open session saying: 'The Governor has made this allegation against my supporters and I must say that we are not violent people but if the allegation has anything to do with any of those who received us I tender apology for such and I want you to give my apology to the president" Governor Goje responded that he knew General Buhari so well "and you will never ask anybody to do such a thing".

Our findings later indicated that the damage caused to the Jonathan Campaign office was done by suspected PDP thugs after our convoy left to create an excuse for their expected poor showing when their principal comes the following day. Truly to their utter embarrassment the stadium that was over filled a day earlier by Buhari was near empty when Jonathan came to the point that the NTA could not focus the scanty crowd but devoted quality time to twisted pipes that we learnt were bought at "Tsohuwar Kasuwa(Gombe old market) and displayed as evidence of damage.

It must be emphasized that we have traversed many cities drawing millions of people who were not given a kobo and without any Incident. The only song on their lips is "CHANGE". As we know too well that the PDP is beset with inferior scholarship, we must spell it out for them: the people of Nigeria are not cheering you because they know that in spite of the enormous earnings of the last 12 years your greed has increased poverty from 45% when you came to 76% today. They see your mansions in the midst of their own mud houses. Their consensus candidate to stop your misrule all over Nigeria is Buhari. Now that they have started showing you the shape of what to come in April, rest assured that blackmailing Buhari or calling for the proscription of CPC will not postpone your day of reckoning.
