As Alleged Presidency Cabal Chases Shadow

By Ngozi Omah, AwkaJuly 9,2021

A frontline traditional ruler in Anambra state, HRM, Igwe (Engr) Nick Obi of Nnobi Ancient Kingdom in Idemili South Local Government Area, has expressed grave concern on the high level of hopelessness and despair in the nation today.

Igwe (Engr) Obi, who is the first Gas engineer in Nigeria in an interview with journalists at his palace in Nnobi, pointed out that events in the nation have really dampened the morale of many citizens who have been facing harrowing experiences daily in effort to survive.

He identified high level insecurity, unemployment, hunger and starvation as parts of the challenges the people were battling with.

“Whenever I visited my children in UK in those days, they will ask me how Nigeria was doing, I remember I always reply them by saying that we hope and pray that better days would come for the nation.

“But the last time I visited, the same question was asked but I couldn’t tell them again that we hope and pray, I simply told them that we pray that all will be well with Nigeria without adding hope”, he recalled.

Asked to comment on the international conspiracy, kidnap, abduction and subsequent detention of the leader of Indigenous Peoples of Biafra(IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (MNK), Igwe Obi philosophically likened him to Jesus Christ who carried out his earthly ministry for just three years and that two thousand years later, his gospel is still being preached all over the world.

He however appealed to the Federal Government to be fair and follow due process of the rule of law in the handling of the matter.

Igwe Engr Nick Obi at the same time urged the government to look into the problems of injustice, lack of fairness to all and discriminatory tendencies that three up MNK and other nationalist agitators.

The reputable Anambra monarch who will not want to talk much over the matter said that the IPOB leader represents an idea which cannot be killed as long as situation remain the same in country.
