… Loyalty Pays In Politics – Eze!
Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party (nPDP), Chief Eze Chukwumeka Eze, has expressed deep felicitation with Chris Oyirinda PhD. Hon. Azubuike Wanjoku and Debewari Seimiekumo, three of whom he described as composite gentlemen, respected great Warriors, dogged progressives and committed allies of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.
“Hon. Azubuike Wanjoku, a great Warrior both in action and physique, Dr. Chris Oyirindah Amadi, erstwhile EDFA of NDDC and amiable Mr. Debewari Seimiekumo the famous ADC to Rt. Hon. Dr. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, the incumbent Minister of Transportation, are three fellows that I hold in high esteem in the political family of Amaechi.
These three unsung and unassuming Pillars of Amaechi Political School have in their divergent operations redefined what loyalty and commitment to a cause is all about. I am not shocked that God in his infinite mercy, wisdom and grace decided to give us such great personalities in this auspicious month of April.”
In a statement made available to media houses in Port Harcourt, the APC chieftain Eze noted that the three committed progressives share the common attribute of always being ready to put down their lives for the cause of sustaining the struggle and success of the vision and mission of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi in his political drive for a better, greater, stronger and united Nigeria.
Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze The APC stakeholder highlighted that discussing these three personalities at a period when it has become an achievement to betray Amaechi by those whom he has aided so much but who are shameless and ready to ready to do anything in order to ruin the political life of their one time benefactor.
Looking at Hon. Azubuike Wanjoku and his steadfastness towards the progress of the political family of Amaechi, I feel delighted that out of the lots that Amaechi has assisted that we still have a fellow who has not changed in his belief and defense of Amaechi. There is no political persecution; he has not suffered just for supporting Amaechi, even been suspended by his colleagues in the State House of Assembly just because of his support for the political family of Amaechi.
Hon. Benson Nwachukwu, a pragmatic and a great writer described Hon Wanjoku in these words, “I have noted with admiration, how you have always demonstrated experience and patriotism in matters of interest as it affects our party, the All progressive Congress APC Ikwerre local government chapter. Indeed your commitment to party building, uncommon loyalty and support to the transportation minister, Rt. honorable Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi,in moving River’s state and indeed Nigeria forward are pragmatic”.
Dr. Oyirinda, during his tenure as the Executive Director (Finance & Administration) in the Board of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), used his office to exhibit a high level of selflessness and all what it takes to occupy a public office on behalf of a people, as he ensured that Rivers youths and stakeholders were carried along and assisted when the need arose.
His love towards the widows and less privileged were infectious when he held sway as Executive Director, Finance and Administration, at NDDC, and to the delight of all, his term at the interventionist agency earned the status of the golden era of NDDC operations in Nigeria.
The structures he built for widows and scholarships he granted to most indigent students will forever speak volume in the annals of politics and public service in the oil-rich Niger Delta region.
Eze went further to postulate that Mr. Debewari Seimiekumo, the ADC to the Minister is a character on the other hand that is very difficult to be defined as most people may not understand the type of stability he brings to bear within the political family of Amaechi.
This man, he said, takes all the blame and bashing on behalf of our Principal when the need arises without anybody knowing.
“Whatever it is that we are currently enjoying as a political family today is the result of the sacrifices and risks taken by Debewari and few others. This unsung Pillar is a stabilizing force and I am convinced that one day he will be celebrated for who he is and all he has done for us all.”
“When I reflect on the lives and inputs made by these three great sons of Amaechi’s political family, I easily understand what my good friend Ann Landers meant when she stated that “Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.”
As they celebrate their birthday, “it is my prayer and wish that our great God grant them long and prosperous life in their service to humanity.
Happy birthday, Wanjoku, Chris and Deb! “God bless you three for me”, Eze concluded.
