The Onwanetili-oha of Ibusa, Chief Fred Chijindua Ajudua has written a heartbreaking letter to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of impending oppression to his wife, Princess Pat Ajudua representing Oshimili South in the Delta State House of Assembly by the Senator representing Delta North in the nation’s upper chamber, Mr Peter Nwaoboshi.
In the letter sent to us by a source, Ajudua known to be the one to singlehandedly turn his hometown Ibusa into a town narrated the plot by Nwaoboshi to deny his wife her fourth term in the State Assembly.
“His Excellency I thank you once more for the assistance for my medicals. I make this write-up to you Ekwueme because it’s long overdue. You may not have given me everything I want in government, but the truth is that you have neither despised me nor dishonored me.
As I write this to you, Peter Nwaoboshi is boasting that he has taken one Tony Azuya to you and you have endorsed him to take over from princess Ajudua in 2019. Again that your good self have asked him to declare to PDP on Friday this week and that you will physically grace the occasion in order to actualize that plot”
Expressing his appreciation to the Governor for his past benevolence to Princess, he called on him again to rise up to the occasion.
“Excellency I respect you a great deal and you have not done me any visible wrong. In 2007 you returned Princess with your own money in my absence; in 2011 you never interfered against her ambition. You were sympathetic when Nwaoboshi and his group shot the poor lady.
In 2015 you did not work against her. In your regime, she has remained the chief whip of the house. You give me audience and financial support anytime you are called upon. I have no cause to doubt your sincerity about princess’s fourth and last tenure to the house of assembly which we have discussed with you and it went down well with you.
That a man believes that he wants to actualize his second term ambition at the Senate while stopping everybody’s ambition is purely a wishful thinking. For a man to say who is FRED AJUDUA, in Delta North because he thinks he has amassed wealth I saw 25yrs ago is to be naive. ‘The point his new found wealth will take him, my own wealth and good will, will take me farther”
Ajudua who is Ibusa most respected and popular person to have come from the town vows to die fighting for his wife’s fourth mandate if it means the last thing he achieves.
“I will not go down without fighting dirty with the last drop of my blood. I will not take this impending assault on my records of what I have done for my people when the likes of Nwaoboshi openly fought us, but you were sympathetic to us in Onu Anioma.
This can as well return me to jail or send me to my grave. I am poised to join his enemies and traducers both in his obvious gluttonous and primitive enrichment at the expense of delta state and the NDDC. In this battle, there will be collateral damages, but I don’t care as long as you are not the target. Your Excellency, I did not ask to be the Governor of Delta state, Senator, member House of Representative, I only ask that my wife be allowed to run for her last tenure in the house of assembly despite all my fight for Anioma land when the likes of Nwaoboshi were pawns in the game of power” he wrote.
In an apparent move to send his wife to the opposition if the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) does not give her ticket to fly the flag, he warned the governor of such consequences.
“Ekwueme, yes we have alternatives if pushed to the wall of unacceptable insult and wickedness in the next 30days. Ask ex President Jonathan if his action of saying ‘who is Rotimi Amaechi in 2015 is not regretting today. No matter your position and the money you think you have amassed today, nobody tells his fellow man ‘who are you and what can you do’.
You can only tell the beginning of a battle, but nobody can foretell its end with its casualties and collateral damage. His Excellency I thank you once more and I await to hear from you before I make my next move. I respect you sincerely”, he ended.
Efforts made to speak to Fred and Princess yielded no results as their lines were busy for over thirty minutes.
