General Overseer of Liberation Temple of the Absolute God in Nri kingdom, Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra state, Dr. Ramas Asuzu has described as sheer madness series of litigations among political parties ahead of the November 6 governorship election in Anambra state.
He regretted huge sum of money being expended in the process, which he said could have been channelled towards creating employment for the teeming youths.
Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Asuzu wondered why politicians preferred wasting resources in court to improving the living standard of the people that would guarantee their victory at the poll.
He said, “Anambra state is where election business thrives and humongous amount of money is being transacted from Jigawa to Kano on conflicting Court orders. You see, Ndigbo have not learnt their lessons even after the genocide in 1967-70.
“Personally, I see these litigations among the parties as sheer madness. Well, behind the scenes of these court cases, all we need is to produce a governor that will look after the youths.
“We should build the youths from being drug barons and couriers in every part of the world. Many of them are serving various jail terms in Malaysia, Indonesia and some are in underground detention cells languishing.
“It is due to lack of job, they resort to drugs. So, the kind of governor we need should be the type that will always convene town hall meetings with his people and feel their heart pulse.
The Prophet expressed optimisim over the neutrality of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) so as not to be influenced by politicians.
He added, “There is anarchy in the party that claims to possess Igbo identity, APGA, together with the other opposition, PDP. Even APC is foot dragging its internal squabbles with sense of discontent of courage to douse frayed nerves.
“Then, the buck stops at INEC. Let’s see if money bags will still not highjack the Commission to alter results during the election. INEC is the highest corrupt body in Nigeria.”
