Owerri, March 29 (Newshour.com.ng) – l am not writing on Rt. Hon. Emeka lhedioha and his official withdrawal from lmo PDP governorship Primary. l may do that later. But l want to use the issue to further prove that Ogubundu Nwadike and one or two others, have remained the major cause of the media related problems of the 3R government. Then, l would respond to his attack yesterday.
Ihedioha wrote on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, to announce that he wouldn’t participate again in his Party’s guber primary in the State. He gave reasons. The first reaction, mocking lhedioha came from these elements. They could not wait to watch events as they unfold. They began to mock lhedioha.
What if tomorrow, lhedioha decides to join Uzodinma’s APC or supports him in his second term bid.?. Or, decides to run for the governorship in another Party?. lam giving what l have. Why always dragging Uzodinma into every issue?. The nuisance or embarrassment called Ogubundu Nwadike, would always use Uzodinma as shield. lnstead of fighting his personal media wars, he would drag Uzodinma into such wars for reasons l am yet to know .
At times, he would also use Rochas Okorocha as a distraction tool. He uses Uzodinma and Okorocha to distract people from exposing him. And l have refused to be distracted by an element that is suffering from generational curse.
Government does not initiate media wars because whoever sells red oil in the market, does not start or cause stampede. Ogubundu has removed the shine from Uzodinma’s Government. He has created the impression that the government in lmo or the governor is at war with the rest of lmo people. That’s the general impression.
Ogubundu Nwadike, with no character, has made himself the ugly mirror with which lmo people look at the governor and his government. He writes ten times a day. lt is always disastrous when you allow an old man with no pedigree, no character, no record of achievements or professionalism, no morals, no good background, no family, no education, no discipline, etc, to be in the frontrow of a media team.
My character, experience, discipline and so on, added value to Okorocha’s government.
Ogubundu, when he could not say anything about me , began to abuse my parents. No normal human being would wake up and begin to abuse someone’s parents when the person didn’t talk about his or her own parents. But Ogubundu did it because he didn’t come from a normal family. The father destroyed his own family before dying and the reason they are all crawling. None of them is walking.
And the funny thing is that he looks at every other person from his own nauseating angle. He does not know that there are people with impeccable characters and Sam. Onwuemeodo is one of such people.
As CPS to Okorocha, the media had a block . After my own office you get that of Production people, the Communication people. Then,the information people and the Government House Correspondents. Even at that, my blood brother, Joshua Onwuemeodo was my P.A. My wife’s younger brother, Solomon Mbata was my personal Secretary. Then a level 14 officer and a grandmother, Mrs Etoh was the official Secretary. And for the two terms of Okorocha’s governorship, l never stayed in my office any day beyond one or two hours. l was a mobile CPS. Always on the move. l was also producing the Whitepaper newspaper . l didn’t abandon it. Which means Ogubundu has not been to that media block since his appointment. And the reason he makes callous statement about my office. lt takes a disciplined man to allow his blood brother and wife’s brother to occupy his office as his own personal aides.
l don’t smoke . l don’t drink acohol. l don’t go to bar. l don’t go to parties or clubs. l have never had girl friend. For the number of years l was CPS nobody could say that’s Sam Onwuemeodo’s girl friend. l am an embodiment of discipline. l am a core Assemblies of God church man. l am sounding boisterous. l have queen as a wife. That’s my choice. Always at home with me. Not oyupaa. Onyirionwu. Okirika-wake-up.
l have School mates, friends and those who know me very well on these platforms and they could attest to all my claims. And this Ogubundu does not know me. So, he sees me from his own reckless life style. He was in his Village market square forecasting pool betting numbers for the players. Those of you who witnessed such activity in thier own villages could imagine the picture. That’s his business all his life. And ogogoro bar, close to the pool betting kiosk. He drinks kiakia foolishly. He smokes Indian hemp on hourly basis and messes around. A man with only nuisance value. He is highly irresponsible. Village nwankpi. He has never denied anything l said about him because they are facts known by many people. So he looks at Sam Onwuemeodo from his own pitiable angle.
At 61, Ogubundu has not married in the true sense of marriage . The woman he parades as wife is another man’s wife he took away. And he has not paid one naira as dowry on the woman’s head. Yet, he abandons the woman each time money comes into his hand.
Last Sunday, he posted his picture with the woman in question. And l am going to repost the picture for all to see because photographs speak volumes. You see a woman in the hand of a nuisance . The woman’s smile looked as if she was crying. When you see a woman in marriage and in the hand of the right or correct man you would know. And when you see a woman in hell fire called marriage and in the hand of a completely useless man like Ogubundu you would also know.
l wedded in April 1999. And l am also going to post my wedding picture with my queen. And the marriage is 24 years old as l write . l am also going to post my photograph with her and her single one to show the good example of a woman in marriage and in the hand of a disciplined man . l am not a millionaire, but happiness beautifies. Do you understand? . l would also post the one with my in-laws, to show that l duly married my wife, with 4 grown up children and the last child going to 4th year, Law. I am using this loafer or efulefu to tell part of my enticing story . l do not believe that WhatsApp is a leveller. Not for me. l would also post one black and white photograph l took during my School days to equally show the kind of family l was raised up . Not in terms of wealth but in terms of knowing God and being disciplined . And l won’t label the photographs. l would like people to identify the element under generational curse and those enjoying the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
Let Ogubundu prove me wrong by showing evidence that the woman he took photograph with, which he posted last Sunday is duly married to him. It takes the personal discipline of a man to keep the wife always happy , flourishing and radiating. lt doesn’t take millions or billions to enjoy God’s goodness . lt takes only the divine presence of God in the life of one and in the life of a family to enjoy that.
Ogubundu abused my parents because his father destroyed his own family before he died. The man was into so many ungodly and criminal activities including bearing false witnesses for money. He was involved in dirty things l find difficult to mention here . He was notorious for those evil things in every home at Amigbo. The reason from his town stayed away from his burial. The few who came refused to even take water. He destroyed his family and generation yet unborn.
He was sick for years , none of the children could raise money to take him to hospital. He died severally before he finally gave up . They borrowed money to take him to the mortuary. The corpse was abandoned in the mortuary because the children could not raise money for the man’s burial.
lt was the intervention of Rt.Hon. Amara lwuanyanwu who raised money for Ogubundu and then brought him into the 3R Government, for the father to be buried and like a foul. ln a family Ogubundu is the bigman or the richest man, you could imagine the scenario.
My own family. My father was among the five people that brought Assemblies of God church to Mbutu. That was before my siblings and l were born. He married and wedded in the Church. Aside being Deacon in that church for decades, he was an Evangelist. He would open Churches and mentored them to maturity, then the Mbaise District Headquarters would then post pastors. Let me mention few of such churches people could easily locate and verify my claims. Assemblies of God church Ulakwo Enyiogugu, AG, Umuoye Enyiogugu, AG, Lagwa, AG, Umuhu Okwuato, AG, Mbutu 2 , etc. My mother was Deaconess for several years.
My eldest sister married an Umuahia man. She retired as a primary school teacher . She has remained a Deaconess in AG till date. The second daughter has also remained Deaconess all these years. She is a business woman. l don’t know whether she has left as President, AG , Mbaise District Women Ministry . The third daughter is a nurse . University of Lagos product. She is the matron of Braithwaite Specialist Hospital Portharcourt. She is also a Deaconess in AG. Then, myself. My immediate younger brother is a Management staff of Panalpina World Transport PLC Lagos . He has remained the Sunday School superintendent and deacon in one of the largest Assemblies of God church in Lagos. Coker Church. The one following him had been the Secretary of lmo state chapter of NLC, before the latest Caretaker Committee set up by the National body. The next one is an lnternational business man. He is the president of the Shop owners in one of the largest markets in Abuja. He is one of the financiers of the Labour Party in Abuja. The last one is a Reverend in Assemblies of God church. That’s the kind of family our father left behind. We are all doing well in the LORD, because our father made us Children of God. And we don’t play with the things of God and things of the spirit. As CPS, the first thing l did was to renovate the AG Mbutu because of my love for God. What gives us joy is that we are all in the LORD. l am provoking Ogubundu to tell his own story . He started it.
My father died gloriously in 2001 at 92 .l was in Portharcourt as the Zonal Editor of Vanguard Newspapers. Brother Benjamin Cornelius of the MIRI NDU fame, was in our family for two days, performing . lt was a carnival. It was AG’s burial and heaven came down. The young man l sent to Aba to look for Benjamin at all cost is on some of these WhatsApp platforms. His name is Ugwuchi.
Dr lk Njoku, a prominent member of the 3R government was the Chairman of Aboh Mbaise LGA that time. He gave me police and Civil Defence personnel that took care of security for the days the burial lasted. Men and women from all walks of life were at the burial. Marshall Harry, Sergeant Awuse, Eric Aso , Ray Chinda, and Dr Glory Emeh who represented Governor Peter Odili then, all came from Portharcourt . Prof. Kims Okoko who was President of ljaw National Congress then, sent a representative. Prince Pat Abii led the key politicians from the state to the burial. My brother lhedioha was there too. My friend Dikeocha was there too. My colleagues from the South South came in large numbers. Ladies and gentlemen, l have remained BLESSED. l won’t allow a loafer , an efulefu, a never do well, a write off , to lower my antenna which God in his infinite wisdom and Mercy, raised. l won’t allow him to change my beautiful story with lies. The guy is shameless. Living the same life the father lived and destroyed his family. Criminal life. Bearing false witness. Telling wicked lies and so on.
Ogubundu is also a dropout. The M. A he attaches, only part of his name. If he had graduated, he must have done his Youth Service. l am also going to show proof of my own Youth Service to provoke him to also show his own proof. This is the kind of character playing leading media role in the 3R government. You can no longer wonder why he has succeeded in removing the eyes and ears of lmo people from whatever the Government seems to be doing well . l left CPS in 2019 and today l am still enjoying the respect of journalists and a lot of people. And nobody has accused me of any wrong doing. And one village based pool forecaster would not be the one telling my story. He is not qualified both in character, in learning and in service.
Some people had advised that l should ignore him. l won’t ignore him. l must continue to expose his emptiness. How can you be doing media work for a sitting Governor and you have no good story about yourself. You can’t tell people what you have been doing for a living before the political appointment. At 61, and with your appointment in 2019, by lmo PDP, what were you doing before the 2019?. A media aide. Haba. He should have been sent as a member of the Development Centre at Nwangele so that he can continue with his pool forecasting business and with his reckless life style. And no amount paid to him as salary as SSA would do the magic. lt takes personal discipline to save money for projects. lt doesn’t matter how much.
Governor’s SSA on Media, Modestus Nwankpa at a point, out of sympathy wanted to help him. The same week he came , he stole Nwankpa’s laptop and ran away . Nwankpa had to use police to go to his Village, arrested him and retrieved the laptop from him. I am talking about Modestus Nwankpa in this government with him. l am an experienced journalist. l do things professionally. l don’t tell cock and bull story.
As CPS, l was very selective on what to respond to and what to ignore. Unfortunately for him, 85 percent of those in the 3R government know me personally . They know my character and what l represent. Owing to his own reckless life style he doesn’t know that there are still highly responsible people. l don’t know who taught the element that abusing or attacking people is the only thing he could do for the 3R government.
l want this element with his nuisance value to come up with his own story and l would release what he published as his CV in 2019 to further show that the man should not have anything to do with decent people . l am waiting.
Thank you and Remain Blessed
My name is Sam Onwuemeodo.
Like I indicated in the piece, l decided not to label the photographs . l plead that people would read and on their own, identity those under generational curse and the ones enjoying the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. l appeal you read to understand the reason for these photographs. Thank you for your understanding and Remain Blessed.
