Pull Him Down Politics: Worst in Igboland

Pull Him Down Politics: Worst in Igboland

By ThankGod Emeh

The South Eastern part of Nigeria has always experienced the ugly sides of governance in the face of both bad and good governors who had governed the five states of the zone since the creation of the geo-political zone.

The worst part being the pull him down syndrome of the political class and masses who are usually bought over by Chief blackmailers to overturn the good sides of any politician they target at any point in time.

When you are hailed today, beware you will one day be yelled at tomorrow and funny reasons may include that you seem making it, you have made it or have embarked on a success journey more than them or have entered a bus they missed and their only resolve will be just to pull you down and that very person(s) if their very type(s) may also choose to do the same.

And one will then see the political strongholds of the region or the points of contact onto the National grid crumbling and as such leaving the Igbos, South East behind the scheme of things.

Igbos keep shooting themselves in the leg. Who is our national leader? Who is our voice at the federal level? Who is more respected among our senators, representatives, governors and public office holders in Nigeria? Do we really believe in them or bear indelible or everlasting grudges against them connected with their flaws as mere mortals to our detriment nationally? How did we fare in the last (2019) general elections involving our core brothers and sisters?

The Hausas have been the most articulated political class in Nigeria politics followed by the Yorubas. The former supports to the fullest against all odds in attempts to crab the national cake or lion share. They always agree to a lasting fight only

to disagree not to agree on cheap blackmails on their consensus choice while the later even pick and choose their leaders before elections and goes ahead to crown them with supports and votes to actualize their dreams. But for the Igbos, none knows the next leader or even support the perceived present leaders to a commendable height rather they put stumbling blocks in the ways of their leaders via uninformed and destructive criticisms.

Little wonder why it is said that “Igbo Enweghi Eze” meaning “The Igbos have no leader”, simply because all the leaders in the zone are always after their pockets and family business and not what benefits all hence some healthy attacks to do the needful as regards representation of the zone in national politics but unfortunately, the good suffers the same fate. Igbo leaders, governors and other political “jagabans” should sustain the good works of their predessors. Let the good work continue.

The fast rate at which Igbo politicians rise and fall in Nigeria politics baffles one and pains to the bone-marrow the way forward in the whole process. Promises have been made and denied as well as regards the Presidency and key positions in the country. Igbos have had good shots at the presidency But how to improve in the game remains sacrosanct as years have come and gone with high expectations not yielding results. Drums are being sounded for the next dispensation and who will the cap fit in the face of all remains a big question.

It is High time we left pursuing shadows and take our place in the country. Let’s have our own share of the national cake before any other agenda. First things first. Family don’t fight dirty in public but through in-house deliberations.
