Omatseye Attacks Obi Over Supporters Threat

Sam Omatseye finished Peter Obi in his piece titled “Obi-tuary.” Like a crocodile girl, I wept for Obi-dient disciples. I am sure they will spend the next 40-days and 40-nights gnashing their yellow teeth held together by customised toy braces. But what he did to the Biafrans in the same column made me wonder if nobody has ever hugged Sam Omatseye and told him that his story of Biafra is valid, and as such, he should not lose touch with his scented offal.

I love the poetry of Sam Omatseye. It is his prose that I have a problem with. Any writer can easily lie in prose made of winding paragraphs. But no writer has been able to lie successfully in floating unknown poetry. I don’t know why. But I think it must have something to do with the form. Worrying about meters, mining for rhyme, stopping for stanza, rolling tongues for rhythm, posturing for personification, licking lips in lyric, alleging in allegory, mutating in imagery, altering reality in alliteration, smiling for simile, metamorphosing in the alter metaphor, signing for syntax, fishing for onomatopoeia, high-fiving hyperbole, the poet always forgets to lie.

While ascribing the victory of the party as divinely ordained by God for the rescuing of the State from impoverishment, Adeleke also pledged not to renege on his electoral promises.

I Did Not Endorse Peter Obi, Labour Party – Ogbonnaya Onu

Former Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, and former Governor of old Abia State, Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, has said that contrary to reports making the rounds, he has not at any time endorsed the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi for the presidency come 2023.

Onu, who himself sought and lost the bid to become presidential flagbearer for the All Progressive Congress (APC) ahead of the 2023 election, said his loyalties remain with the ruling party and as such, all reports of his involvement in any form of anti-party activity should be disregarded.
