In what looks like a mini drama at the Enugu west political rally (tagged Ifemelunma ) held at the Agwu Local Government Secretariat, on August 7th, 2021, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu state, five incumbent local government Chairmen from Enugu west senatorial zone and other political gladiators were told the bitter truth during the rally.
A former Gubernatorial Aspirant and a PDP chieftain, Chief Hyde Onuaguruchi stole the show when he was given microphone to speak.
Chief Hyde Onuguruchi who twisted the mood of the event when he asked the crowd “Do you know why the Igbo people are agitating to go? Many responded marginalization among other reasons. Then, Hyde came with a killer narrative, “What is happening to Ndi Igbo in Nigeria is exactly what greater Awgu people are passing through in Enugu state”.
He added that even in the organization of the Ifemelunma political rally, one of the chief conveners was born in Nkanu land; hence his enthusiasm with anything to promote Nkanu agenda.
Hyde was still speaking when an order from above instructed that he leaves the stage. They muted his microphone, asked the D.J to put music and tried to forcefully collect the microphone from him, which he resisted until he was allowed to complete his remarks.
Meanwhile, Hyde also questioned why the noise on who becomes the next Governor of Enugu state in 2023. He is not pleased that gubernatorial election dominated the political terrain in the state, thereby forgetting the Nigeria Federal Capital, Abuja where they suppose to strategize as a state and produce the next president of Nigeria.
However, the tempo of the event changed, and series of mushroom or group chanting took over the arena.
According to Leakblast Reporters, One can understand that the heat for who becomes the next governor of Enugu state has begun to take over the political calmness in Enugu state, and major cracks in the PDP could be noticed in the state.
She added that, there are many rhetoric in the quest to get the next governor of Enugu state and many gladiators are deploying tribal, political and experience narrative or sentiment to drive home their campaign.
But in the end, the major news from the Ife Emelunma political rally held in Awgu LGA can be said to have been the opposite of the intention of the organizers.
