MAKING the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)  truly Independent election conducting body has been seen as a tonic that will grease 80% to 90% election success.

A frontline member of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), based in Onitsha, Boniface Ikechukwu Obi, who was talking to our correspondent at his Villa in Ezekwuabo-Otolo-Nnewi, opined that INEC will perform better when it is entirely independent.

Chief Obi regretted that patriotic representation by elected politicians in various areas of offices has been put to oblivion hence at election times; politicians spread money to buy votes which will catapult them to their wished political “bus stop”.

He regretted further that hunger has played major role in navigating the conscience of those with good intentions to accept money and some cups of rice to get their daily bread.

He said that the only way for the masses to get good and trusted leaders will be by casting votes for those that can bring Christly virtues and fear of God, as well as respect and love for one another.

He regretted that ndi igbo are marginalized and cannot share a little from the crumbs of the federal government and urged ndi Igbo to wake up and join in the race of the country’s leadership and immediate integration to the national polity.

He was not happy that ndi  Igbo are used by                                 other tribes to get their desired political success only to be dumped when they succeed and echoed  that 2019 election is another opportunity for ndi Igbo to make hay while the sun shines.

He commended Governor Willie Obiano whom he said has endeared himself to the people of Anambra State making it the Light of the Nation with visible concerned governance which security reigns supreme.

He commended the members of the Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC) who do a lot to decongest roads during holidays and festive periods. He used the opportunity to caution motorists especially the commercial vehicle drivers of  the need to drive with caution now that we are at the last ember month that ushers in Christmas and New year.
