Information that reaches wge indicates that mechanization for the gubernatorial campaign may have started in 2023 in the state of Abia behind closed doors.
This is because opposition camp is said to have launched a calculated campaign against the former governor of the state of Abia, senator Theodore Orji and his family.
As you know, the opposition camp led by the failed gubernatorial candidate of APGA, Alex Otti, together with the imprisoned one-time governor Abia State, senator Orji Uzor Kalu sent their coordinators to Abia State and Abuja to organize a protest protest against senator Orji and his son, Chinedu Orji, who runs the Abia State House of Assembly. The organized protest – scheduled for today – will take place simultaneously in Abia and Abuja. The protest will call for the son’s removal from the State Assembly.
wge gathered from a ranking senator from the southeast that the Alex Otti camp is particularly concerned about the bravery of Rt. Hon. Chinedu Orji in the political sphere of the state of Abia. Alex Otti believes that Chinedu Orji will be a wedge against the gubernatorial ambitions of Alex Orji. He believes that with the removal of Chinedu Orji from the seat of the State Assembly that the coast for him will become the next Abia State Governor – or at least play a key role in selecting the next governor.
The opportunity created by the surprising imprisonment of Senator Orji Uzor Orji for corruption encouraged the Alex Otti camp to petition the EFCC against the duo of Senator Orji and his son. The application received accelerated attention from the EFCC and the parties involved were quickly identified by the EFCC as being of interest.
The imprisoned governor, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, whose public feud with the Theodore Orji family remains unresolved – took this opportunity as his best opportunity to attack his long-standing political enemy. He would have made financial resources available to the organizers of the alleged protest.
The protests that would start today at 8.30 a.m. did not start at 12.30 a.m.
