The Only South-easterner In Aso Villa Is A Photographer - Senator Abaribe by lalasticlala(m): 10:38am On Nov 20
Senate Minority leader, Enyinnaya Araribe intensified his call for more recognition to be given to those from the South East at the federal level, saying that the only person from that region in the Aso Villa is a photographer.

Abaribe said this on Friday as a guest on Channels Television’s programme Sunrise Daily in reaction to Governor David Umahi’s defection from Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Abaribe who had earlier in the week said the party was unfazed by Umahi’ defection also believes the governor’s movement will be gauged properly when it’s time for the 2023 elections.

His words: “Let us assume Governor Umahi is bringing the South East, as he says, into the mainstream because that was what I heard yesterday. What is the mainstream? Is it the Aso Villa that belongs to all of us that you cannot find a single person from the South East, except a photographer?

“Before every part of this country was represented in the Aso Villa, so when you want to do government business because sometimes government business is done from back channels, so if you have a problem or they want to do some consultations, you make a call into the Villa, you call to your countryman and say please can you tell oga this or that so that we can have this talk, there is none today inside the villa. There’s one guy, his name is Sunny, I think he’s a photographer.

“So Umahi is going to talk to who? Ok, because he is governor he can talk to Chief of Staff, he can go to see the president but what about others?”

When confronted with names of those who are from the South East and aides to the president, Araribe responded by asking, ‘where are they? Can you call them and ask them to tell the President A, B, or C? Everybody knows that we do not have someone you can call a proper person within that whole enclave you call the Villa. We had access, we do not have that anymore. Of course, you can have low-level people being appointed, but what do they do that you can say these people make a difference in our lives in the South East?

Senator Abaribe Enyinaya.......... "Who is there in Aso Rock that is Igbo, we only have one photographer there, his name is Sunny"
Channels TV came back from break and started reeling out the names of SAs close to the president in Aso Rock that are of Igbos extraction and asked Senator Abaribe Enyinaya, what about these ones, hear his response....
"Can u call any of them and ask them for anything".... He went further and started making incoherent analysis and later said, let's just forget that side�������
Me......As Bisi Akande would say, most PMB critics are bigtime propagandists...... They can hardly survive a fact driven argument... When it comes to facts, they hardly hold their own, hardly.. They always buckle.

I will rather get infrastructures from PMB than see some idiot individuals get appointments like they did under GEJ but left our region in ruin.

Abaribe should face his ABIA state useless Government first.

First and foremost the people in the villa whether inside or outside or in- between are not the issue.

The issue is when the ones that were once there during past administration, what exactly did they do for the people?

We may all agree and still hold the truth that Umahi left pdp to apc for his own selfish reasons and politics after putting his state under Islamic sukuk bond administration, there needs to be some protection anyway..


Now PDP what have they actually done for the people. Are the people from SE in APC Muslims the way PDP thieves will come down to east to tag APC Muslims party ?

What has pdp brought to the table if not appointing people that keep looting, looting and looting on industrial scale.

Infact let's leave others states aside, Abaribe when you have those as you said in the villa what did you achieved engaging them If not to plan on way to steal?

Multi-party politics remains okay. PDP that have no reasonable achievement in east but their only campaign agenda on east is that apc is a muslim party while their party is a christian party


Abaribe is talking trash. Only an Igbo man with no good sense of history will ever think of voting pdp again in any Election. The party isn't worth it.



PDP is purely devilish. When Wike the Governor of Rivers state was using military to carry out his ethnic vendetta and cleansing against Igbos, the only thing PDP said that the allegations against Wike is a lie. videos that went viral showing Wike boasting that he will kill as he wish and nothing will happen.

In essence during that Period PDP continued telling us that it wasn't Wike that was making such statements but his clone or shadow. PDP came out openly to support the massacre and after they will come to ask for your vote.


In essence PDP values Igbos vote not their lives, the reason Wike and his people will boastfully makes noise of killing Igbos and the party didn't see need to condemn the arch-genocidist of a Governor

Abia State People and their love for telling lies and bad governance

From Nnamdi Kanu, Ikpeazu to Orji Uzor Kalu and Abaribe, it's always lies


Aso Rock Civil Service comprises of people from all states as they hire based on quota system

Omoboriowo Bayo from Ekiti is the photographer not an Ibo man

List of all Buhari's Special Adviser and Assistant is available on Aso Rock website and website of the SGF and Ibos are properly represented


Aso Rock has hundreds of people working at various departments, it's like a mini Secretariat

Said it before and I'd keep saying it the SouthEast politicians are the luckiest in the country.

These guys have discovered the key to keeping their people subservient and loyal to them without doing the very least of the things for which they were given their mandate.

They understand that all you need to do is DO NOTHING but keep throwing jabs at Aso Rock, Buhari,
North, Islam, Tinubu and, to a lesser extent, the West generally.
Once you do ANY OF THESE CONSISTENTLY, you're home free, your people will adore you and elevate you to a Hero Status while totally holding you to no account for all the monies you've revieved on their behalf!

Has Abaribe ever rolled out his achievements as a Senator? Has he ever divulged how much he has recieved as a senator representing his people? Has he ever given account of the bills he has sponsored for the betterment of his constituents? What exactly is his scorecard as a Senator?

These are critical questions he is meant to answer but he understands no one would care if he answers them, not as long as he keeps insulting Buhari!!

It is the same way some Northern politicians understand the impact of Islam on their people. Islam/religion, North, Ethnic bigotry/anti North hysteria, South East.

Ask the hopeless Senator, when pdp was in power, Easterners in Aso Rock numbered in the millions, right? Now, how did their numbers translate to any tangible development in the East? Did it result in the construction of roads or bridges or FG housing estates or huge water drains for erosion control? Is he interested in the occupation of Eaterners for the sake or Easterners or the sake of his personal influence in government, which seems to be nowhere at the moment? Can Abaribe in all honesty tell us what development pdp brought to the East in SIXTEEN YEARS conpared to what Buhari's administration has done in SIX YEARS?

Pathetic.

Although I would love an Igbo brother to become our next President, what I would not tolerate is using lies, propaganda, blackmail and threats to coerce us into voting your candidate..

Since Nigeria was created, my tribal man has never become President, Vice President, Senate President, etc, but I am not complaining. So, I don't see why the Igbos should be complaining and even threatening us.. Democracy is a game of number. Build bridges, if you want to be President..

God bless Nigeria.



Igbochief001:

Did yorubas fight for it in 1999 ?
Did north west fight for it in 2007
Did Niger Delta fight for it in 2011?
Why are u all hypocritical because it has to do with Igbos

And u want IPOB to die ?

Build bridge ? Which region have supported other zones more than igbos name one zone

Igbos are not trusted and liked in Nigeria ...we are waiting for 2023 to confirm it ...so the whole would would see it's justified when we demand for our own country

My brother, it's like you are mistaking "fight for it" with literally using violence and force to fight for it, that's not the contextual meaning here..

The victorious candidates you mentioned above never used lies, propaganda, bitterness and threats to win the presidential election. They were voted massively by majority of the electorates.. MKO Abiola's unfair treatment from the then draconian regime of IBB won sympathy for OBJ.. Obj himself was chosen because he successfully built bridges right from his military days, as the head of state. His amiable relationship with the international community, fulfillment of promise, by restoring civilian rule, etc, endeared him to not only Nigerians, but also the international community. No wonder he was massively supported. He paid his dues..

The North West too didn't stoop to that traitorous level. The people voted massively for Yaradua. His contributions as Katsina State Governor, including the fact that he was the first governor to publicly declare his assets, something alien to politicians, won him admiration. Obasanjo's influence also contributed to his victory..

Goodluck Jonathan won as a result of the unfortunate incident that occurred. He completed Yaradua's tenure and was massively voted in for his achievements. Not because of threats..

Similarly, it took President Mohammadu Buhari several attempts and coalition with the South West to become the President. He fought for it..

So, my brother, fight for it.. Nobody will be cowed by your threats.

God bless Nigeria.

In fairness to the East, they are sometimes correct. That said, you guys need to put your house in order. Whoever told the Ebonyi governor that the interest of the Ibos is better served in the APC must have sold him a big fat lie. APC after Buhari will most certainly go into the history books.

REMEMBER THIS PHOGRAPHER HAS NEVER SHOW NIGERIANS A LIVE VIDEO FROM ASO ROCK SINCE 2017, THE LAST TIME BUHARI HAD A PRESIDENTIAL MEDIA CHAT WAS IN 2016, ALSO NOTE THAT BUHARI HAS NEVER GONE FOR A MEDICAL TRIP SINCE 2018 AND ALL THIS PHOTOGRAPHER CAN DO IS POST HD FOTOS EVERYWHERE!

Fact. We told you guys before that Buhari is a tribalist and has a plan to islamize this country but you won't believe, people like Adesina, Ogunlesi and some other Southerners were strategically deployed and a person like Femi Adesina, Tolu Ogunlesi of this world will rather sell their clan for a plate of Amala and Gbegiri. We are back to military Junta where protest for a better governance could become bloody where blood sucking military can test their battle skills just like we have in the days of Ken Saro Wiwa. It is so sad for Nigeria, a forgotten nation. I doubt if many of your are aware that Col.Muhammed Alli, the current Immigration boss was among the panel that convicted Saro Wiwa? Its not a mistake that he's today an immigration boss. While we were force to be eating olokuta rice after shutting our boarder, the North enjoys premium European rice at a more cheaper and affordable rate.

God may not act over our case until we all hold the FG by the balls over this lekki massacre!

When all nook and cranny of Aso Rock was overflowing with igbos were South East roads tarred from Onitsha to Umuahia?
