In so many villages or towns across Nigeria, intending political office holders have to reach certain people we never see, but can only note their levels of influence on election days. These are the people that have meetings every Sunday or Tuesday in their compounds with almost everyone in their community , discussing their direction and agenda, in the course of planning towards an imminent election, or a futuristic one. While they are at this, they also have daily contribution systems they include and may add refreshments, and all of these factors consolidate their opinions in the choice of candidates they choose.

The actual number of such groups cannot be quantified but they make the sun structure that are found in the wards, and later on make up the slate of opinions in the elections are these members act as elements of advertisement for candidates who have been able to win their loyalty and votes.

These factors are just a little of so many and you begin to wonder how these new cats are able to pull through with the whole process of elections and getting elected , because of the rigorous task involved, however, the growth of the political scene largely depends on the nature of the Nigerian dream, because we are fearless in positive endeavours globally.

While there is a call for the President to come from the South East, as Igbo’s are craving for more participation at the helm of affairs in Nigeria. The former Governor of Imo State, Mr. Rochas Okorocha, has given a reply to Pastor Tunde Bakare’s unprecedented statement that the Igbo people are cursed and cannot rule Nigeria yet unless that curse is reversed.

As someone who ran with President Buhari trying to be his Vice, Tunde Bakare, who is the General Overseer of Citadel Global Community Church, claimed that first Prime Minister of Nigeria, Tafawa Balewa, cursed the Igbo people before he was killed during a coup.

In his words Bakare said: “Why should anyone in this country say the Igbo man cannot be president of Nigeria? I was at Imo State and I told them the reason why the Igbo cannot rule Nigeria and I want to remove the curse today.

Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha speaking on April 5th , 2022 at his Unity House Campaign office in Abuja, during the visit of the All Progressives Congress National Youth Leader, Dayo Israel, Okorocha gave a reply to Bakare.


Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha in his words said: “When I listened to Bakare mention that the Igbos are cursed in the cause of his preaching, I think that is an overstatement and unwarranted preaching. I must state here categorically that Igbos are not cursed and they will never be cursed.

“They are peaceful and blessed Nigerians who are found in every nook and cranny of this country. They may not be good politicians, because of the kind of politics we play in Nigeria, but definitely, they are not cursed. Igbos are a great asset to this country. They are not the problem.”
