Below are some of the tweets,
I have since stopped tweeting politics, both in Nigeria and Abia. I am sorry, but that’s my only path to sanity. The people who conspired to kidnap Abia State have won. Let them keep dancing their ‘victory’ song. A known miscreant has become Speaker. Doxology.
Senator Theodore Orji’s son is the new Abia State Assembly’s Speaker and I haven’t seen thread about godfatherism, nepotism, tokenism, tribalism and all those other big big vocals. What a time to be alive in Nigeria
Just look at Abia state. The most underdeveloped state in the south practising Monarchy. A state that has the Governor’s billboards as the most beautiful thing is low-key rewarding their ex-governors/sons. Maybe the state should be addressed as “Ochendu and Sons Ltd”.
In Abia State… Senator 1 was a former Governor Senator 2 was a former Governor Senator 3 was a former Deputy Governor Speaker of the HOA is the son of Senator 1
