OPINION: The Ubah-nomics Effect, By Okoye Chukwudi Emmanuel

OPINION: The Ubah-nomics Effect, By Okoye Chukwudi Emmanuel

From time infinitum, politics has always determinant factor for the control of economic power.

Who controls the political space equally dictates what happens in the economic atmosphere.

So, the need for our full involvement in the political gallery is now as important as ever.
We can not continue to shy away from the very thing that dictates how we survive.

This is why we need to put our house in order and collectively put the horse before the cart.
The Igbo nation has lost a lot economical, and the reason behind this short fall is not far fetched.

It's as simple as the word  jack; Over time, we have been sending representatives who have little or zero idea in the field of commerce .
These representatives may have acquired PhD degrees in the field of finance and economics, but like the wise men said, "Experience is the Best Teacher "

What we actually need are individuals who understand the complexity of the Nigerian Economy ,Men who have been in the field  - people who have felt the heat and understand the heart beat of the Nigerian market.

Ndi Igbo, believe me, the Rome we yern for won't build it self.

We must start to hold our representatives responsible for things that lock us out of the economic equation.

For instance, since the Civil War, Port Harcourt was declared a war torn zone, this means goods and other logistics that come in from the international community can't dock in Port Hacourt, simply because a law that was enacted Forty something years ago, during the civil war is still operational.

The question remains, is Nigeria still at war?
Again, the federal government is planning to build a dry sea port in one of the northern states , which will see goods coming into the Northern part of Nigeria before clearing.

The direct benefit of this, is that clearing of goods will be easier.
Direct and indirect employment will be gained and goods will be cheaper.
Also, Tax which would have ordinarily gone to Lagos in the West will now be paid to the North. This brings more development.

So, if a sea port is not Suitable in the south east or south south with alot of marine bodies, why the the far north?

This is why the Eastern part of Nigeria has to rise  and demand to be treated fair.
What is good for the goose is equally good for the gander.

Many years after the second Niger Bridge was commissioned, work on the bridge is crawling, if not snoring !

Another question is, what is stopping with the federal government from making the River Niger Cargo friendly?

The answer is not far fetched.
The legislative will power.
If only we had the right men in the Senate and House of Representatives to lobby and influence projects like this.

If only we will stop sending pancakes rubbing and "Okada" buying legislators to Abuja.

The youths are tired of being unemployed!

Why do our importers have to go through Lagos before getting their goods to Onitsha, Enugu, Nnewi and Aba?
When they can easily dock in Port Hacourt?

We are seriously tired of legislators who sink boreholes ,buy wheel barrows as empowerment tools and share cars to their cronies.

What we need are laws that will enhance industrialization.
We are tired of being beggars in our own  country.
This and many more are the reasons we need men like Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah in the Senate.

He has been in the economic and commerce sector of this country for more than two decades and counting.
He understands how this country works.
He single handedly crashed the price of dollar when it was hiked unceremoniously!

Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah is a champion in all ramification.
He is a man driven by a passion to succeed and a spirited excellence in all his endeavour.
He is enthusiastically passionate about the future of the Igbo nation, just like Senator Victor Umeh.

What the Igbo nation needs now is to send Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah to the Senate and tap from the glory of what i describe as UBAH-NOMICS.

Whatever he touches turns to gold- the man with the midis touch.

It's time we key into the "Ubah-nomics" effect and commence a long but sweet journey of transforming the Socio - political cum economy of the Igbo nation.

Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah is a man who is always ready to sacrifice for the general public.
He is a creative leader, who is dynamic and resourceful.
A human capital developer, who understands that for the Igbo nation to achieve sufficiency, the economic  environment of the Eastern Nigeria must be friendly .

We need leaders who will stand and defend the common man in the street.
Take a deep breath and imagine how much developments will come into Anambra, Enugu, Delta, Ebony, Imo and Abia States if only we can get half of what goes to the North.

Sending Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah to the Senate will yield more results than we can think of, he understands how the market works, only him can do it!
Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah has serious business at red chamber for ndi Anambra South Vol 1

Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah has serious business at red chamber for ndi Anambra South Vol 1

By Machi Pius Igwe

Lots indeed have been said in regard the Anambra South senatorial election which is the mother of all contests. It has become one of the stiffest contests of all the senatorial zones because of the key players; capacity and ability required for one to participate fully in the politicking. Many of the contestants have come with promises, visions and manifestos but if we must count on what is obtainable I must confess that Dr. Ubah looks more prepared, endowed with excess capacity, deeply connected and battle ready to displace and dismantle the status quo.

For this reason alone APGA as party must ensure that a level playing ground is guaranteed for a free and fair primaries which is what Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah has been yearning for. We must beware of APC promises of 2015 which we believed and it was later proved to be but lies. That is why every aspirant must be asked what he/she have done so far that could serve as a pointer that if he/she get to the red chamber he/she could consolidate on already visible efforts. APC wanted to grab power and when they succeeded could not fathom how to manage it.

Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah has shown beyond reasonable doubt that he has serious business that is people and regional oriented in the red chambers and he has continued to assure that he cannot renege in focusing his attention to achieve those plans. Some of these are projects he has already started already and only improve or advance them at the red chamber. You cannot compare him with someone that has little or nothing on the table to improve or advance.


This has been mentioned on uncountable occasions that no investor or philanthropist has dared the level Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah has gone in youth empowerment. In fact Dr. Ubah is the reason why many politicians now try hard to empower the youths (Something they have ignored for years). But Dr Patrick Ifeanyi ubah has succeeded in youth empowerment with his hard-earned money, meaning he can only do more if elected.


 It is no more a breaking news the feat Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah has achieved with his entrance into the Nigeria Football Federation with his FC Ifeanyi Ubah; he has brought trophies to Anambra, has founded 1Family 1Football project that has gotten ANSFA, NFF, CAF and FIFA approvals. The emergence of FCIU has led to stupendous sports awareness and advancement in our beloved state giving career and employment opportunities to thousand of youths and adults alike in our state. Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah has exposed our people to the values, profits and bounteous benefits of football and other sports related career. These opportunities which he has brought for at least 87% of Ndi Anambra will be advanced and evenly connected to outside world if Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah should hopefully be in the red chambers January 2019.


Many people have almost forgotten that Anambra was on the verge of being classified as oil producing state, a move which stated during GEJ led administration metamorphosed into the tin air because those we have at the red chambers were rather pursuing personal agendas. But being an oil mogul, indeed Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah will play huge role in oil and gas committee of that national assembly and would advocate for Anambra to be recognized as oil producing states. He will know how to maneuver and negotiate our beloved state into a juicy allocation that would enhance infrastructural development and employment in our beloved state. For this singular reason Dr. Ubah has more public-centered assignment at the red chamber than any of his opponents.


The business of national assembly members are strictly lawmaking, yes we know but they have a way of negotiating with the executives to attract federal projects like roads, provision of water, loan facilities for farmers, FADAMA projects, etc to their constituencies. If you doubt this go and see the dauntless efforts of Sen Ike Ekweremmadu in road projects in his area, same also can be said of Sen Ken Nnamani. This also can be achieved by drawing the attention of executive arms to the plight of your constituencies in motion. This has eluded the people of Anambra South people in the past because of selfish representation. Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah has vowed to change the narratives to give the people all inclusive representation.


During one of our tours of the projects and plans of Dr. Ubah for Ndi Anambra South, there were series of life elevating plans, visions, mission embarked upon by EBUBECHUKWUZO. I am very sure that those would make some wonderful schemes that would put smiles in faces of Ndi Anambra when such plans will be executed in partnership with the federal govt. This is possibly attainable because Dr. Ubah is a trader that intends to represent the interest of traders. Truthful indeed is the fact that virtual all things are possible and available for grabs for those lawmakers that actually want to improve their people but because of greed, selfishness and timidity our past representative always end up picking crumbs where there is abundance. Indeed be rest assured that Dr. Ubah will collect our fair share with two hands.


With capacious population, the people of Anambra South has continued to be sidelined in sharing of federal jobs according to federal quota system. This is mainly because those that were sent there in the past have little or no need for the available jobs. While the slots agitated, negotiated and shared by serious lawmakers, we end up getting nothing. This is why somebody with zeal for job creation should need to be sent to the red chamber so they’d push for more federal job slots for Ndi Anambra South. This can only be achievable with an employer of labor per excellence Dr. Ubah!

Support Ifeanyi Ubah for Senate!

Why INEC declared Osun Election Inconclusive • Rerun to hold only affected areas where elections were cancelled

Why INEC declared Osun Election Inconclusive • Rerun to hold only affected areas where elections were cancelled

A re-run was declared for the Osun State governorship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) due to the margin of victory between the two leading candidates.

The election, one of the closest in Nigeria’s electoral history, was held on Saturday to elect a new governor for the South-Western state.

At the end of collation of results, Ademola Adeleke of the PDP won majority votes of about 254,698 while Gboyega Oyetola of the APC came a close second with 254,345 votes.

According to electoral rules, a re-run election can be so declared if the margin of victory in an election is lower than cancelled votes, such as in Osun where thousands of votes were cancelled in various local governments while the vote difference between the leading candidates was less than a thousand.

In that case, rerun will be held in only affected areas where elections were cancelled.

Osun Election: Why I destroyed authentic Ayedaade LG’s poll result – INEC staff confessed

Mr. Salawu Mutiu Kolawole after he was arrested by the Police
A staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Osun State, Salawu Mutiu Kolawole on Sunday told journalists that his boss ordered him to destroy the election result of Ayedaade Local Government area of the state.

The latest confession corroborated the claim of the agent of PDP, Mr Dele Adeleke who explained that the result recorded and pasted on the wall at Ayedaade local government collection center was different from the one presented at the INEC office in Osogbo.

Some INEC officials cautioned Salawu from speaking with journalists as policemen moved to douse the tension. Salawu was then ushered into one of the offices.

Also, according to a report by Daily Trust, PDP Chairman in Osun State claimed that the results attributed to APC in five local government areas including Olorunda, Osogbo, Ife East, Ilesa East and Boripe LGs were inflated in favour of APC.

As it stands now, the PDP candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke is leading with 300 votes and that the figures may go up when necessary corrections are made.

Praise 2019: The Grand Entry of Hon Gerald Akaeze

Praise 2019: The Grand Entry of Hon Gerald Akaeze

As the race for who flies the flag of the Igbo-centric party, APGA in Nnewi South Constituency 1 draws near, the entrance of Gerald Akaeze into the fold is a great boost to the hopes of the party and the led. Hon. Gerald is not a new name as far as Nnewi South politics is concerned, having served as the speaker of the Local Government and the current youngest President-General of a town union(Utuh Development Union, UDU) in Anambra. His experience in grassroots mobilization and development is an edge he has over other aspirants as most are newbies as far as local politics is concerned.

The aspiration of Gerald Akaeze tagged “Praise 2019” is a divine mandate to liberate the great people of Nnewi South Constituency 1 and make them have direct access to governance. Beyond the scope of leadership, Gerald is a promising young man, one with the zeal to cause real change and checkmate the welfare of the people of his constituency. He is driven by the passion to serve and the tenacity to make a positive difference because he does not believe in politics as usual where the people are short-changed by their previous representatives.
Let the good people of Nnewi South Constituency 1 welcome this rare gem into their political arms because he has come to change the old narrative and bring practical solutions to every problem facing their constituency. With Hon. Gerald Akaeze at the helm of Nnewi South Constituency 1 representation, the people are rest assured that change has come for the better and they will testify to this as they enjoy the dividends of democracy championed by this young gentleman.

I urge the good people of Nnewi South Constituency 1 to support en masse the candidacy of Hon. Gerald Akaeze whose sole aim is to bring governance to the people’s doorstep. Gerald believes in the saying that ‘to whom much is given, much is expected.’ He knows the challenges facing the people because he is one of their own. He also knows the solutions to these challenges and that is why he is offering himself to their service.

Long live APGA., long live Anambra, long live Nnewi South Constituency 1 and long live Hon. Gerald Akaeze.

OPINION: Obiano Beware Less APGA Go the Way of PDP, By Udoka Onwueme

OPINION: Obiano Beware Less APGA Go the Way of PDP, By Udoka Onwueme

By Udoka Onwueme

In November 2018 Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State won a landslide victory across the twenty-one Local Governments of Anambra State to secure a second term mandate, it was celebrated as a landmark in the annals of the state and a period of consolidation for All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA. Among the founding fathers of the party, it was celebrated as a template for the making of a great party across the South East region and beyond. This dominant view subsists amongst the party faithful and all those who believed the ideals of ‘Onye ayana nwanne ya,’   as a veritable tool for salvaging the fortunes of the Igboman politically and those of like minds across Nigeria. But it appears that the lofty goals may be derailed by lack of internal party democracy.

The widespread support enjoyed by APGA as a mass movement is hinged on the pervasive feeling of oneness and unity of purpose. Whereas some choose to identify APGA as Igbo party, some of us have always believed that many across Nigeria can find a nest in its fold. Evidence now abounds with the large number of aspirants identifying with the party across the country. However the reverberations on the activities of party leaders on the choice of preferred candidates may yet spell doom for APGA like the PDP when it reigned supreme. As party stalwarts we were glad when Obiano pronounced at the party retreat that the Primaries will be free and fair but recent scheming across the Senatorial zones, to the House of Reps and even State House may lead to party implosion if care is not taken.

I can’t claim knowledge of agreements or promises made but as a man whose victory was assured on the general belief of trustworthiness, Obiano should not allow this light deem on his hands. Already, Sen. Stella Oduah is reported to have been forced out of APGA in preference of a certain Ikenga, while the heavy-weights of the South like Nicholas Ukachukwu and   Chief Ifeanyi Ubah are said to have been told to step-down for Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu or any other person. I hope this is not true because we all know that this election is not about Ojukwu. The place of Late Ikemba, Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu is long assured. So let us keep to the issues and ensure that we go to the battle with warriors across the zones.

I call on the National Chairman of APGA, Dr. Victor Oye and his team to ride the storm and save Obiano the blemish of blames arising from controlled primaries and the likely emergence of unpopular candidates through imposition that may threaten his legacy. The rumour is rife, and the complaints appear real. Whereas some are already shouting impunity, I believe every misunderstanding can be settled in the interest of the democracy and the party. This is a clarion call to assure that APGA does not lose it mass appeal and the momentum it currently has. Let us not fall prey to the machinations of persons who do not appreciate the sacrifices behind APGA. Let the best man or woman win.

By Nnaemeka Ikerionwu

Community development is simply that practice of coming together by persons in the community to undertake group action and proffer common resolutions and challenges facing the community with the sole aim of elevating the standard of living of people, fundamentally on equality justice, and mutual respect.

The Capital Oil Boss, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah obviously means a whole lot of things to different persons in varied nomenclatures, but one can't conclude without mentioning his capabilities in community development.

The business Mogul is an ardent propagator of a popular Igbo developmental strategy termed "Akuluo Uno" hence the numerous visible establishments in his home State, Anambra.

Judging from past events, Ubah’s main goal is more of reaching out to his people and touching lives with his enormous wealth.

Through his company, Capital Oil Gas Ltd, Ubah has has given thousands of direct and indirect jobs to Nigerians while contributing his own quota to the economic development of Nigeria.

In futherance of his strategies in Youth's development, Ubah established Football Club Ifeanyi Ubah at his hometown, Nnewi, Anambra State. In less than one year of the club's establishment, he entered into a historic partnership with West Ham United FC of England and won the Nigeria FA Cup.

Ubah had previously roled out numerous styles of youth's developmental strategies which included the sponsorship of over 70 Youths to London in an all-expense-paid trip to witness the signing ceremony of the partnership with West Ham FC, over 80 youths to Egypt and another set of over 100 Youths from different states across the country in yet another all expense-paid trip to the recently concluded FIFA World Cup in Russia where he launched The African Football Initiative, popularly known as One Family, One Footballer, with the aim of providing one million footballs to African Children.

Ubah's community in Nnewi is arguably the only community in Nigeria that enjoys power supply every night for the past 15 years.

This same community has its roads paved with interlocking stones and functional streetlights courtesy of the Oil Magnet.

Throughout his life, Ubah has channlled all his social and business activities towards helping the society.

Dr. Patrick Ifeanyichukwu Ubah (Ebubechukwu Uzo) is an astute community developer worthy of emulation.

Anambra South Senatorial Election: APGA screens Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, others

Anambra South Senatorial Election: APGA screens Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, others

The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Friday, successfully screened Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, a frontline aspirant for the 2019 Anambra South Senatorial Election.

Dr. Ubah who is also the CEO of Capital Oil and Gas and founder of the famous Afaigboefuna movement was screened alongside other aspirants in Awka.

In his remarks, Ubah thanked the party and reiterated his will to advance his efforts towards the development of the South East economy especially in Anambra South through presentation of quality bills and urged the delegates to support him en masse.

The billionaire business man also advised his supporters and well wishers to maintain the existing peace in the Senatorial District by engaging only on issue based campaigns.

The oil mogul who described his fellow aspirants including Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu, Chief Nicholas Ukachukwu and Dr. Okey Chidolue as his wife and brothers respectively also vowed to protect and promote the values and interests of Party.

The primary which was earlier scheduled to hold on Saturday September 29, 2018 will now hold on Sunday September 30, 2018 at the Ekwulobia Township Stadium.

OPINION: The degree of your impact determines the extent of your respect, By Chinedu Leonard Adilli Ubah

In the light of this, I have watched in awe the continuous hyping of long-term membership saga in the face of the current wave of the APGA primary election which Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah is a potential winner in the waiting.

Let's take a step back to the historic governorship election that produced the 21/21 record which will live and outlive this generation.

Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah would forever be remembered not just by Anambrarians but by the entire Igbo race for the reawakening of the consciousness of our pride and race through the most prolific movement *"AFA IGBO EFU NA". Indeed the AFA IGBO EFU NA happens to be the final straw that breaks the camel's back in the 21/21. The impact of this crusade cuts across wards, zones and local governments as Anambrarians keyed into this movement that is positioned to a unit, restore and install the long incubated Igbo mandate.

It was this movement by Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah that mastered the political hurricane that silence even the two Deputy governorship aspirants that came from the same local government with him. This is one of the hardest bargains to play in politics and that is to win two key opponents with all their Arsenals and placing the APGA flag high in Nnewi North. Someone should ask the beauty master where she voted?

The truth about it all is not about how long you have been at the party, it is not how far but how well. Being a long-term member without any direct impact is questionable.

It doesn't matter how long you have been there, what matters is what impact did you make for any minute you have spent being there. Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah defies all odd by delivering Nnewi North to APGA which is obvious APGA has never won an election in Nnewi North. What has she been doing all this while?

This is the time for us to see beyond long-term factor and focus on the contributions made by individuals, some persons are just there counting years and time waiting on the day they would use it to claim privilege without any visible contributions.

Before someone will jump to say I am going to Senate, we have to look in to see what has the person done before, APGA! who has she empowered, who has benefited from her, either through job creation, direct or indirect engagements or empowerment? The onus is now on the capacity of who is going to Senate, we can't sacrifice this Senatorial space for another four years.

The fact that someone is the wife of whoever or Son of whoever is not, cannot and does not qualify the person to have what it takes to be a senator. We can't for sympathy throw away the opportunity of APGA to reclaim Anambra South. We all know that Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah is the best realistic candidate that has both the domestic, regional and national stamina to fight this hurricane. *Ndi Igbo Ekwelugo!*

Lest we forget, the impact of AFA IGBO EFU NA has risen to be a brand in the current sphere of Southeastern APGA political, it has risen to be the unifying slogan that ignited the passion and desire of many Southeastern erst to join the APGA movement which will, in turn, give it the National stamina it has long anticipated for. Thanks to Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah for this initiative.


Ndi Anambra South !!

Our collective mandate is not just for the moment, we can't repeat the mistakes of the past. We can't give out our costly share to individuals who is not the best for the job. Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah is the best option for Anambra South Senatorial Zone.

Good Governance Ambassadors of Nigeria (GOGAN), a Project Beyond 2019

Good Governance Ambassadors of Nigeria (GOGAN), a Project Beyond 2019

By Ositadimma Izuchukwu Anslem ©2018

The air of the Nigeria polity is once again stuffed up with the shenanigans and politicking that's associated with the electioneering period. So many people, groups and bodies are positioning for the 'big season', but this time around, things are different. It is different because we now have a shift from the norm. The norm of the days of yore, when half-baked "Support Groups" were floated by irregular characters just to have a chunk out of the pool of consolidated campaign funds. Those were the days of the locust, when the people whom the people hold in trust for their resources, have appropriated same for their personal pockets.

Today, the obtainablilities are different. President Muhammadu Buhari has performed so creditably well that he does not need a long list of phoney support groups to validate his performance. The numerous infrastructural projects and reforms all over Nigeria are their to speak for him. Today, we have a leader who is investing so much resources for the next generation instead of the next election. A departure from the norm where humongous sums are voted for the purposes of manipulating elections.

A shift from the usual is the Good Governance Ambassadors of Nigeria (GOGAN), a collection of patriotic and altruistic Nigerians who have volunteered their personal resources for the purpose of championing good governance and preaching the rule of law. GOGAN, which boasts of an organogram of refined men and women with clearcut agenda, have outlined their aims and objectives which includes:

  - To promote and rally support towards the enthronement of good governance in Nigeria for peace, unity and prosperity of Nigeria.
  - To rally support for the government in a bid 5o engender positive performance and delivery of the dividends of democracy to the entire citizenry.
  - To propagate anti-Corruption campaign by promoting and celebrating moral values, integrity, modesty and honesty among Nigerians.
  - To evolve workable strategies towards youth empowerment through agriculture and mining, amongst others.
  - To promote unity and peace among Nigerians as a panacea to achieving positive development in the nation.
  - To promote Unity among religious bodies as an avenue for achieving religious freedom in every part of the country.
  - to. Encourage, support and assist the armed forces in its fight against terrorism in the country.
  - To periodically draw the attention of the government to the genuine agitations of the citizens to engender people's oriented policies and programs.
  - To encourage compliance with genuine policies of the government by the citizens.
  - To provide dynamic support for the improved revenue generation and economic development of the country.

With all of the above, it is an uncontestable fact that the Good Governance Ambassadors of Nigeria (GOGAN) is a project beyond 2019.

How herbalist plucked policeman's eyes to make invisibility charm

How herbalist plucked policeman's eyes to make invisibility charm

An 80-year-old herbalist, Hussaini Musa, has been arrested by the Katsina State Police Command in connection with the beheading of a policeman attached to 56 PMF, Special Duty, Operation Safe Haven, Jos, Plateau State.

The Katsina State Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Wakili, said the herbalist was arrested with two others, Abubakar Sani, 35, and Abubakar Sani, 28, for beheading Sergeant Unana Ishaya.

He stated that the suspects plucked out the sergeant’s eyes after beheading him, as part of requirements given to them by the herbalist, Hussaini Musa, for a charm jacket which will enable them to carry out robbery and afterwards escape arrest by disappearing.

One of the suspects, Sani, revealed that they wanted to use the charmed jacket to rob the EFCC office in Jos, where they suspected there was huge amount of money, without having to breaking in.
