The best of Gov. T.A. Orji

A government without good performance is like a pregnancy without fetus. A
lie can take off with the speed of lightening but a lameduck truth will
always surmount that speed. These are unconnected to the scorn called
governance of Gov. T.A Orji of Abia State, no matter the arsenal of
hoodwinkers he surrounds himself with christened media aides who are bent
on misleading the general public to believe that the pretenses that are
being perpetrated in the state are the true meaning of governance, with
their misguided utterances and garrulous carriages.

Reading their articles in our prestigious newspapers makes one wants to
throw-up because of the mountain of lies and defilements against critics
they lace their articles with. These are the best that Gov. Theodore A.
Orji can offer.

The truth is that the well-meaning people of Abia State knew that the
government is good at charade and calling critics names and warping
malicious stories against those who write or say contrarily to what the
governor wants to hear. This government has been doing to this writer with
fictitious names. This government is also bent on using over seven names to
circulate just one article. But however it tries in its shallowness to
paint black white, the true stories happening in the present Abia State
must be told.

What this Gov. Orji’s government does not understand is that no amount of
assemblages of false articles can hide the truth, no matter the numerous
media outfits that are carrying the lies contained in such articles;
perhaps the media outfits are oblivious of the intention of the writer(s),
because no well-mannered editor or publisher would publish lies and
blackmails for anything.

The Abia State Government media aides’ articles will continue to imprison
the already out-of-shape Gov. T.A Orji and his misshaped government with
much deformity. Gov. Orji has to come out from the media dungeon that his
so-called media aides have thrown him into in the belief that they are
redeeming his ailing image.

Jim Morrison warns people like Gov. Orji to come out of the waste-of-time
habit of portraying who they are really not, saying that the most important
kind of freedom is to be what you really are (without gainsaying). You
trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You
give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t
be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an
individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.

Hope he knows that our people of Abia State are being provoked by the lies
he circulates in the media that his government is the best that has ever
happened to that state. And no wonder his is the best in behaving like
Columbian chaps, because it is very easy to read that in his media aides’
articles. The in-thing is that Gov. Orji will not be voted for in any
elections again in the country or anywhere in the world because he has
shown that he is not even fit for a village head.

The clothes that were once fitting our people are now loose, because of the
headache that Orji is giving them in the cause of governance that has
brought untold hardships than ever. A walk from the road that leads from
Opopo junction to Okpakiri of Ogbo Hill axis is like a journey to Golgotha,
as one is stressed on bad road because of manmade badness.

The same is applicable in all the areas, but here is a governor that is
boasting of building dialysis centres and Shoprite, when our people can’t
even see any reason for accepting democracy. What causes renal failures
that lead people to visit dialysis centre if not bad environment, such that
our people have taken much emitting poisons from in this government? Go to
our state and ask: Side by side in an election with an insane person, our
people would prefer to vote the person instead they will vote for T.A Orji
who has caused the state some immorality.

His authoritative decisions like the incessant imposition of taxes on the
residents are unbecoming of in a governmental segment as democracy. Say
Motor Park leadership is what our state has turned to. Other arms of
government in the state are seemingly coerced to be rubberstamped while
Gov. Orji, his family and minute part of his ubiquitous cronies take the
field’s day. Would Gov. Orji also twist the truth that there has never been
Local Government Areas’ election since six years he has been reigning as a
monarch instead of an elected governor in our state?

The levels of blemishes that have characterised Orji’s government are
immeasurable. If he doubts that he does not operate as a monarch, why are
the people heading these LGAs appointed by him instead of being elected? Do
not say that this is one of the conduits through which the state’s money
goes down the drains.

Orji has refused to budge for progress; the only progress his government is
making is to manufacture nasty stories against anyone who dared pinpointed
these facts. But that spiteful behaviour will not deter us, rather such
enlivens us to tell the world the true state of Abia State than the
crassness he has been fighting hard to seeing that he sells to the
unsuspecting publics who had before reading, refused to buy or believe in
anything Gov. Orji.

The condition, politically, in Abia State in term of true governance, is
nothing to write home about. However, our people have refused to be
intimidated by Gov. Orji and his anesthetized boys. Structures and good
governance they have always told the world that exist in Abia State only
exist in the newspapers that they always publish their hocus-pocus. Our
people will never give in for the many shrewd antics of labeling this
writer and other critics rapists, blackmailers, extortionists, kidnapers
and sundry sullied stories. Notwithstanding, these are the only words that
Gov. T.A Orji’s media gangsters are good at pronouncing.

Gov. Orji has to repent, and desist from misleading the people that he is
performing whereas that was daydreaming. He should listen to and, learn
from Mahatma Gandhi, who once said: “When I despair, I remember that all
through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been
tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the
end, they always fall. Think of it–always.”
