Capt. Emmanuel Iheanacho And His Kpuum-kpuum-kpa-o-gele Harmony Groups…



Captain Emmanuel Iheanacho

By: Ambrose Nwaogwugwu, April 20, 2024.

While growing up in my ancestral land at Aboh Mbaise, there was a very popular moonlight musical genre that we danced to as children and we call it kpuum-kpuum-kpa-ogele and it goes like this: onye na achu ogele ogele ogele nta, kpuum kpuum kpa ogele, ogele e ogele nta — it would swing from Nwaogwugwu to Taa or Bee ee (may his soul continue to rest in peace) and to the next person as it keeps swinging as we sing.

That aptly describes what I may call the games of swings by this very respected elderstatesman in the person of the former Minister of the federal republic, Chief Emmanuel Iheanacho, a retired Merchant Navy Captain who was appointed Nigerian Minister of Interior on 6 April 2010, when Acting President Goodluck Jonathan announced his new cabinet.

In his games of swing, our respected Ndaa Iheanacho is going about whatever he is doing as though he is dealing with people with zero sense of history to appreciate one’s peculiar antecedents to our political trajectories as a people.

From his ancestral lands of Owerri North, Ndaa Captain Iheanacho is singing obtrusive songs of equity and charter and like the man who wants to write his own stories using his pen bought from the ancestral market of Eke Ukwu Owere, Ndaa Iheanacho is playing the roles of both the striker, that of wingers, defenders and equally the goal keeper in a tournament where he is the sole arbitrator while feigning loving kindedness to the collective goals of Owerri Zone people.

Largely to his infamous credits of betrayal and unwholesome attributes to conspiring against the Owerri Zone agenda, like they say; leopards hardly change their spot and I daresay an agadi Nwanyi can never get old to dance the tunes prevalent at her youthful days.

In the first quarter of 2024 in the year of our lord Jesus Christ, Ndaa Captain Iheanacho is selling himself as an altruistic lover of the Owerri Zone cause while masquerading as an Apostle of charter of equity.

In 2023 during the election year when well meaning sons and daughters of Owerri went to the nooks and crannies of our zone selling the concept of the new Imo charter of equity to our people, we did not see anywhere where Ndaa Captain make a case for it.

Ndaa Captain remained largely at large as we never read in any of the newspapers or new media taking all the available spaces on their front pages as he is currently doing with his Kpuum Kpuum Kpa Ogele Harmony Group canvassing for Imo charter of equity; those who never supported us in the open to canvass our position do not have any moral rights to come out now wanting to benefit from what they never supported.

Ndaa Captain’s later day love and advocacy for Owerri Zone is suspicious as he has never in true spirits and reality shown any in practice.

Ndaa Captain is one of the single greatest players in the present political dispension (since the return of democracy in 1999) who have set Owerri Zone 20yrs backward in the political equity, yet we have not heard of any apologies from him.

Instead of polluting the tranquilized state of Owerri Zone with Kpuum-kpuum-kpa-o-gele Harmony songs, Ndaa Iheanacho should have used same energy in seeking for forgiveness from the good people of Owerri Zone he betrayed their political interests in 2011.

If people like Captain Iheanacho had not sold off Owerri Zone by working with an Orlu Zone candidate (Rochas Okorocha of APGA) in 2011 instead of allowing the Okigwe zone’s incumbent Governor Ikedi Ohakim to complete his second term, it would have been Owerri Zone if Gov. Ohakim had completed his second term….but Ndaa Captain played the game against us.

Ndaa Captain popped champagne the day Rochas Okorocha defeated Gov. Ikedi Ohakim after Ndaa Captain and fellow brothers of Emekuku heavily bankrolled Okorocha and helped him deliver Owerri North against a party that benevolently made him Minister, first he had never been before.

You did that to Owerri Zone, and without any remorse, you are out again singing Kpuum-Kpuum-Kpa-Ogele with perhaps, fellow sellout of Owerri Zone agenda.

And you want us to forget this painful aspect of our political history as a zone and now want us to start gallivanting with you?

From your kind of anti progressive politics, you have never meant well for Owerri Zone agenda as you have been a clog on the wheels of our political progression.

And true to your character and political antecedents, you have set forth again, but this time, aligning with some cursed characters like Willie Amadi out again to undo the Owerri Zone agenda.

You cannot say you mean well for the people yet you are with what makes the people sad.

The very notorious Willie Amadi whom you seem to have commissioned to be your town crier was the same person whom Owerri people declared persona non grata after he metted out wickedness upon them, even to his own people while in office and was indeed one of the sad commentaries of the administration of Gov. Ohakim till date which further provoked the masses against the then administration.

How can one claim to heal some bruises on a knee of his kinsman and he chooses to use salts in treating the wound, who does that?

Any campaign or political movement where notorious characters like Willie Amadi are championing is first of all headed to first class failure and when your Kpuum-Kpuum-Kpa-Ogele harmony group started on such footing should tell every right thinking person where they are headed to.

Infact, whatever group being orchestrated by such characters is dead on arrival because first, his odious notoriety is public knowledge which is still heavily resented by the masses, and he openly worked against the interest of the governor during the elections which is equally a public knowledge.

In this accident bound voyage of your Kpuum-Kpuum-Kpa-o-Ogele harmony group, why have we not heard you call for restraint from those fighting against the ruling party at the Tribunal?

We are therefore left to conclude that your Kpuum-Kpuum-Kpa-o-Ogele harmony group is only out to destroy whatever chances the Owerri Zone may have wielded before now in respect of the 2027 governorship in the state, like your highlighted antecedents points out, hence we are left to believe this Kpuum-Kpuum-Kpa-o-Ogele harmony group is anti Owerri Zone agenda.

Any group that is hitting up the polity, distracting the peace and concentration of the new administration to deliver dividends of democracy to the masses and not advising those in the tribunal fighting against the election our people donated freely to the #PeoplesGovernor even when the governor has given all assurances of handing over to us in Owerri Zone with all the state power and official apparatus…. Such a group is Anti Owerri Zone Agenda which must not be totally ignored but ostracised by the people.

We need peace and tranquility to actualize our agenda in 2027 and that must be done within the framework of the ruling party — it is only a fool who has been handed with salt to go and feed his kinsmen with and on his way going, he pays rain makers to draw rain for him!

Owerri Zone is at an advantaged position — for both declared and undeclared considerations: no true Owerri Zone man or woman want to start making troubles when the coast not never been this clear….
