AKPUOLAGI? ( Have you been molded? )

AKPUOLAGI? ( Have you been molded? )

By Kalu Nwokoro Idika
For Family Writers Press

In the early hours of 20th December, while I was trying to have a quiet moment with my Maker before getting set for the business of the day, my phone rang. As a man who sees Chukwuokike Abiama as his ultimate navigator and doesn't cut corners when it comes to communion with celestial beings, I diligently ignored the call. Repugnantly, the caller did not stop calling. The ringing tone of the phone could not let me concentrate in my spiritual introspection! Against all odds, I fiercely mustered enough courage to finish up my spiritual romance with the God of creation.

Concomittantly, 2 minutes after my spiritual romance with my Maker, the caller rang my phone again! Lackadaisically, I picked up the call and said hello! Flabbergastingly, I was thrown off balance when the caller responded by saying, Kalu, AKPUOLAGI? Perplexed! I asked the caller called Chukwuemeka ( not the original name ) what he meant? The caller retorted by asking me if I haven't heard about the government of STATUECRACY in Imo State being championed by one local hero called Rochas Okorocha? That was when it dawn on me that Rochas Okorocha is nothing but a catastrophic clog on the wheel of good governance.

'AKPUOLAGI' has become a household word used to chronicle the political dementia of a leader who abandoned hapless and impoverished civil servants at the mercy of hunger and hopelessness ocassioned by several months of unpaid salary. A man that is drunken in myopia, riddled with confusion and bluntly deficient in the necessary political ingredients needed to drive the right development. A man who opted to build statues that have no economic bearing than to pay his poor workers. What a shame! This is the highest apogee of misplaced priority!

Frankly speaking, If there are men with unwavering gut in Imo State, by now, Rochas Okorocha should have been booted out of the Government House because of his headstrong, unremorseful and brazen financial misconduct. Unfortunately, nobody has the temerity to raise an eyebrow over his defiant and ever squandering disposition. This is just too reckless! How can a governor spend the sum of 520 million naira to erect mere statues in a State where there is widespread poverty? Of what economic value are these statues to the people of Imo State? Will it solve the issue of hunger, accountability, unemployment, unpaid salaries and honesty that is farfetched in the government of Imo State?  Okorocha has rather lost the right political configuration. Someone should seriously remind this man that Imo people need good roads, electricity, employment, quality education, good hospitals and not statues. STATUES doesn't put food on the table. Only good governance can put food on the table.

No doubt, when it comes to good governance, your score card is there. You are far below average! Your government have been tumbling from one political blunder to another, ranging from criminal duplication of offices that encourages mediocrity and looting, over bloated media hype of programmes and policies that doesn't exist and needless fanfare over an achievement that is beyond your confines. We have outgrown the usual caricature of when politicians like you will mobilise some unruly and dishonest journalists, via a well teleguided condition, to exaggerate over achievements that exist in the thin air. We are much more aware that you are a man soaked in craftiness and disdainfully cunning!


In far away Plateau State, while addressing some green snakes in a green grass, you called the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra a 'mad man'. I am not here to start questioning why such a malefic statement was uttered by you. Afterall, we are in a democratic world and people are abundantly entitled to their opinion. I am more engrossed in proving to you that you are the one who is 'insane' and not the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra. A sane leader will not be spending fortunes to erect statues in the neighborhood while his followers are going to bed on empty stomach.  Only a 'mad' leader will act in the above manner. A leader without focus, direction and devoid of charisma! A leader swallowed and blinded in self ego. Your political mischievousness in Imo State speaks volume of a leader drunken in the 'madness' of power. Oh yes, your 'insanity' cemented the coming of STATUECRATIC government at the expense of good GOVERNANCE.

Nnamdi Kanu did not buy your line of argument of 'one Nigeria' doesn't warrant the childish talk of addressing him as a 'mad man'. You cannot attempt a quarter of what Nnamdi Kanu has done. There is a big schism between you and Nnamdi Kanu. Nnamdi Kanu is a saviour that came in the time of need! A saviour that came to rekindle hope in the midst of hopelessness! The rapacious actions of political shenanigans like you became a paramount launch pad for the emergence of this saviour!

Can you save yourself the stress of using the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra to curry mundane political relevance as a local hero? Why not concentrate more in delivering good governance to the people of Imo State than running your leprous mouth against a man that is whiter than white and whiter than snow? All I see in you is pure jealousy.


Be it as it may, Okorocha should let IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu to be. We have gone beyond the stage of petty talks. We the Indigenous People Of Biafra have already taken the bull by the horn, is either Biafra or nothing.  The restoration of Biafra will definitely sweep STATUECRATIC government and their bandwagons into the abyss. It shall be a total victory and redemption for the oppressed people of Biafra. A new page that will bid farewell to the old ways of doing things! A place where friends will not longer be calling to ask me 'NWANNEM, AKPUOLAGI'?
