A socio-political group under the aegis of Abia North Peace Foundation (ANPF) has condemned a former Senator representing Abia North senatorial district, Mao Ohuabunwa’s desperation and irresponsible politicking ahead of the 2023 general election.
The group while reacting to a statement by Ohuabunwa criticising Senator Orji Uzor Kalu’s support for the former governor of Lagos State and presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, said: “Supporting a Southern presidential candidate in Bola Ahmed Tinubu is better than supporting a Fulani man who deleted his Tweet and post condemning the gruesome murder of a Christian student in Sokoto all because of power.”
The Director General of the group, Chief Nnanna Ukaegbu in a statement on Tuesday morning cautioned Ohuabunwa not to set the state ablaze in his desperation to return to Abuja.
The group also accused Ohuabunwa of playing with the emotions and integrity of the people of Abia North senatorial district by overheating the polity using religion and insecurity as a tool instead of showcasing his achievements during the twelve years he spent at the national assembly.
“Instead of Ohuabunwa to apologise to the masses for wasting twelve precious years with nothing to show for it, he is here promoting hate, insecurity and division across the senatorial district.
“Ohuabunwa is condemning Kalu for supporting a Southerner, yet he is supporting a Fulani man to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari — a Fulani man whose ambivalence on religion is known, as demonstrated in the late Deborah’s imbroglio in Sokoto, which is still fresh in the mind of every Christian.
“Ohuabunwa’s statement laced with childish innuendos should be disregarded by the all — let him continue to trend on his monumental failures; especially his infamous frying pan sharing empowerment.
“Ohuabunwa has nothing to offer. He told everyone that he has no regret sharing frying pans and that he would do it again. Obviously, being Governor Wike’s Personal Assistant, he is trying to impress him by being on the media to get more money for a futile senatorial bid. We rather urge him to concentrate on his job as Governor Nyesom Wike’s Personal Assistant as there is no vacancy in Abia North senatorial district.”
