Ifeanyi Uba Held First London Inaugural Meeting At Deptford by Nobody: 7:25pm On Apr 29, 2013
Vote for Chief Dr. Ifeanyi Uba(Governor
Anambra 2014)
Ifeanyi Ubah Progressive Forum (London, U.K.)
April 29, 2013
By Ifeanyi Ubah P. Forum
The Ifeanyi Ubah progressive forum held its
first London inaugural meeting in London last
Sunday evening at the Bilt Mansions in
Deptford South London. The gathering was
heavily attended beyond the expectations of
the organisers of the event which declared its
avowed intention to put Dr Ifeanyi Ubah in
charge of the government house in Awka
later this year.
The gathering of eminent young, dynamic
and aspirational Igbo professionals,
businessmen, politicians and political activists
signalled and reflected the embodiment of the
mogul young and successful businessman
called Ifeanyi Ubah (Capital Oil Nigeria). An
established philanthropist and fighter for the
common man, Chief Ifeanyi Ubah supports
thousands of Anambranians through the
Ifeanyi Ubah Foundation both in education,
acquisition of life skills and provision of
succour to the needy in a society where
inequality is entrenched as norm.
There were attendants from all Igbo walks of
life living in London with only one common
goal – to return Awka government house to
the common man with a common purpose-
Anambranians from North South and central
were fully represented and other Igbos from
Enugu, Imo, Abia, Ebonyi were also fully
represented. Represenatives and executives
of Igbo political forums including Anambra
State Union UK, Ohanaeze UK, Igbo diaspora
UK, PDP UK, APGA UK Chapter, Nigerians in
diaspora UK, Nigeria for Labour Party and
many others attended the inaugural Ifeanyi
Ubah progressive forum where an
overwhelming support for Ifeanyi Ubah as
next Governor of Anambra state was
endorsed.
Proceedings had kicked with the Chairman of
the inaugural gathering, Mr. Ifeanyi
Onukwube, addressing the group with an
analysis of the state of affairs and governance
of the 'A' state since its creation in 1991 in
comparison to other states created about the
same time. The question of Igbo leadership
was also highlighted and the search for the
next Ikemba and the next Chinua Achebe,
leaders who towered above their peers and
who were unswerving in their service to the
Igbo nation.
Speaker after speaker contributed to the
question of the search for a credible and
dynamic Governor who will truly be a servant
of the people, who would lift the state to the
height it deserves, who would unite the state
and lift the spirit of its people from the
doldrums that Peter Obi and past
administrators had left the state in. In Ifeanyi
Ubah- a world renowned philanthropist-
hugely gifted, hugely successful and yet very
humble- the group placed its mandate to take
the seat of power and move the state
forward. some of the problems of the state
highlighted by various speakers include the
state of the roads with particular mention of
the road at upper Iweka junction in Onitsha,
the lack of local government elections in the
state which ought to mobilise and energise
the state politically, the state of schools in a
state where educational development in in
extreme poor conditions, poor and near
existence of safe and credible hospitals in the
state, the poor development of the state
capital Awka especially when compared to
similar new capitals like Asaba, Uyo and
Owerri and good developmental works in
nearby Enugu. One speaker decried the news
of Peter Obi's siting of a multi-billion
shopping complex in Abuja denying his state
(a state well known for trading and
enterprise) job and developmental
opportunities.
Chief Aaron Mourah (the president of ASU-UK)
urged Chief Ubah and the I.U.P.F London
coordinators to ensure that Ifeanyi Ubah's
vision for the state is effectively articulated
and made the framework of his campaign
which he said ASU would support and
campaign vigorously for his election. Godson
Azu- secretary general of Nigerians in
diaspora similarly endorsed the view and
emphasized the need for all anambranians to
mobilize behind Ifeanyi Ubah and pledged his
support towards the election of Ifeanyi Ubah
who is clearly and far and above the most
credible candidate the state could have
wished for. Dr Joe Ukemenam- president of
Nigeria for Labour UK, Iyke Obidamaru,
Okechukwu Nwajagu and many other
speakers urged chief Ubah to come up with a
credible and deliverable manifesto which the
people can serve as a blue print and vision for
the state under his leadership. They all as one
pledged their unalloyed support to mobilize
support and the youths of Anambra and
Igbos in diaspora for Ifeanyi Ubah and the
coordinators and in ensuring that a well-
articulated manifesto which reflects Ifeanyi's
humility and burning desire to serve ordinary
people and lift his home state and the Igbo
race is delivered in Anambra state- the 'A'
state.
The inaugural meeting agreed and resolved
that:
1. Ifeanyi Ubah is the most credible
Gubernatorial candidate for Anambra
2. The youths of Anambra will be mobilized
towards his election
3. The Igbos all over the world should be
interested in what happens in Anambra state
and would be sensitised to the actualisation
of the election of Ifeanyi Ubah as the dream
ticket. What affects Anambra affects the Igbo.
4. To convene another meeting within the
next 4 weeks where all Igbos living in the UK
will be invited as the diaspora begins the
search for the next authentic Igbo voice after
the demise of Ikemba and Achebe and the
disappointment and failure of the current
politicians to defend and uphold the Igbo
who have become well marginalised in
Nigeria.
5. Undertake preparatory activities to
welcome Ifeanyi Ubah in London where he
will address over a million Igbos living in UK.
The meeting closed after 4 hours of
deliberations with an address by Coordinator
of Ifeanyi Ubah Progressive Forum- in UK who
thanked the group for their determination
and resolve to rescue the 'A' state from the
jaws and claws of political buccaneers and
journeymen and return the state to the
people of Anambra. He urged participants and
members to identify with the mission and
register in the website as members and
ensure that all Anambranians and all Igbos
attend the next gathering where political and
campaign strategies and Ifeanyi's visit to
London will be top of the agenda.
A one minute clapping applause was
observed in honour and memory of Professor
Chinua Achebe who died recently in the USA.
A date was announced by Ichele Achebe for a
night vigil in London for his uncle, Chinua
widely regarded as an Igbo warrior and
greatest African writer of his this generation.
