OPINION: FROM REFUSE DUMP TO REFUSE DUMPS: THE OKEZIE IKPEAZU EXAMPLE – By. Ferdinand Ekeoma
Dr. Okezie Ikpazu and his allies and supporters carried out the most baseless propaganda about his phantom legacies at the Abia State Environmental Protection Agency (ASEPA), during the 2015 electioneering period, but millions of Abians who knew that Abia never had decent environment during the period under review laughed them off.
On his assumption of office, they intensified effort in insulting our sensibilities with the petty rhetoric of Ikpeazu being lifted from the Dustin and made a King; Liking him to the Biblical Godly prophecy. They forgot that God never endorsed the kind of hate, violence, criminality, brigandage and stealing they unleashed on Abia and Abians in their despicable quest to acquire political power by all means in 2015.
Almost four years down the line, I’m sure that even Ikpeazu’s most extremist propagandists would agree with me that the man is leaving behind legacies of life threatening environmental nuisance and nonsense.
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Ikpeazu has either consciously or unconsciously allowed the most strategic parts of Abia to be taken over by heaps of refuse that now pose serious threat to the lives of Abians, because the man never wanted to be governor, as he was alleged to have repeatedly confessed at different fora. He was a product of Godless godfatherism, that has seen many innocents Abians become fatherless because their pensioner fathers were callously denied their entitlements.
A few weeks ago, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Abia state chapter had issued a release urging Abians to hold Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu responsible should epidemic outbreak occur in Abia state.
APGA thought that Ikpeazu would have been alarmed and alarted to act, in line with international democratic practices where leaders pay attention to the selfless and people oriented views of the led, especially in times of emergency; Alas, Ikpeazu being occupied with frivolities of 2019 dead governorship project chose to call the bluff of the endangered Abians.
Today, different parts of Aba and Umuahia have been completely taken over by heaps of refuse, because the absentee governor is completely disconnected from realities on ground.
While Ikpeazu and his army of aides dedicate their time and energy trying to discredit their nemesis, Alex Otti with below standard gibberish; Abia is allowed to steadily slide into the deepest side of sorrow as Ikpeazu’s mountains of refuse rise on a daily basis.
If Ikpeazu could fail woefully in that department that deceitfully served as his campaign launchpad, a discerning mind wouldn’t find it difficult predicting his performance in other facets of the economy where he is completely a neophyte.
Abians don’t need a sooth seer to know that Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu who was alleged to have emerged from the Refuse Dump, has taken a decision to take Abians back to his numerous refuse dumps where life is hellish, and epidemics, predictable.
