Bishop Dr. Emeka Michael Nwankpa has reminded Abia Electorates of the need to go for only leaders who have good capabilities to manage humans and scarce resources of the state as only such men can turn around her condition from wasteful years of unprogressive existence to prudent years of coordinated and promising development as will be experienced in Abia state under the watch of the maverick clergyman who has taken the burden upon himself to fight for the masses.

The ACCORD candidate for the 2023 gubernatorial race to the Lion House, Abia’s seat of power, has repeatedly sounded this warning through many radio programs, print media and endless electronic mean and through the cyberspace. He has always maintained that Abia is by no chance a cursed state, rather only lacked men with the simple political will of setting reasonable policies and pursuing them to it’s logical conclusion.

According to the Senior Pastor at Chapel of Faith International Bible Ministry, the 2023 contest should be issue based and only men with the requisite experiences should be allowed to preside over Abia State. He insisted that the contenders should be weighed by their track records as individuals, the question of antecedent should be paramount to determine where they are coming from and use that to visualize where they are going to or what to be expected of them.

Bishop Nwankpa has also severally spoken against allowing career politicians to continue to feed on our collective pain as a people because when you set men that are practical unproductive to oversee the affairs of the people, they do all within their powers to grab enough for themselves first, at the end, the people will suffer the more because there will not be enough to take care of the people.

“I have studied this trend, I have seen that, among other things, it is one of the chronic diseases killing the state. That is why people like me has come forth to be used as instrument of liberation for the people to fight against the evil status quo.

“I have said it at different fora that I am not a politician, I am a preacher of the word of God, well established in the ministry and has through it, blessed and established many souls. I am a good manager of humans and scarce resources and God, in His infinite mercy blessed me with enough substance to be comfortable and also feed others. For almost two decades I’ve blessed thousands of widows, I have empowered many youths financially, materially and with several skills. I have hundreds of students under my scholarship from Primary level through to the University and scholarship abroad. If I have done all these as a private individual to support my state and help the needy, I am certain I will do much more when I have the opportunity to manage the recourses of the state.

“Suffice this to say that most of the people jostling to grab the state again has no track records, they are only seeking opportunity to help themselves. that is why I am insisting that Abians must ask the question of ” WHO ARE YOU BEFORE NOW?”.

The Foremost contender also insists that the people must fish out those people that has fed fat from the purse of Abia State and avoid them because they are only coming back to continue the loot, graduate from picking to gathering when they are given higher responsibility.

A former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, his wife, Beatrice, have been found guilty of organ trafficking in the United Kingdom.

The duo alongside their daughter, Sonia, and a medical doctor, Dr. Obinna Obeta, were found guilty of facilitating the travel of a young man to Britain with a view to his exploitation after a six-week trial at the Old Bailey.

They criminally conspired to bring the 21-year-old Lagos street trader to London to exploit him for his kidney, the jury found on Thursday.

The judge, Justice Jeremy Johnson, will pass a sentence at a later date, The Guardian UK reports.

My Daughter Was Preparing For Her Masters In UK Before Train Crash – Father Of Corps Member| Punch

Ekweremadu, Beatrice, Sonia and Obeta had been standing trial at the Old Bailey for organ trafficking.

Their conviction on Thursday was the first verdict of its kind under the Modern Slavery Act.

Ekweremadu and his wife were last year arrested in the United Kingdom for allegedly trafficking a young man into the country to harvest his kidney.

The young man was said to have been falsely presented as Sonia’s cousin in a failed bid to persuade doctors to carry out an £80,000 private procedure at the Royal Free Hospital in London.

The young man was said to have been offered an illegal reward to become a donor for Sonia after kidney disease forced her to drop out of a master’s degree in film at Newcastle University.

The prosecutor, Hugh Davies KC, told the court the Ekweremadus and Obeta had treated the man and other potential donors as “disposable assets – spare parts for reward”.

He said they entered an “emotionally cold commercial transaction” with the man, The Guardian UK report added.

The behaviour of Ekweremadu showed “entitlement, dishonesty and hypocrisy”, Davies told the jury.

He said Ekweremadu “agreed to reward someone for a kidney for his daughter – somebody in circumstances of poverty and from whom he distanced himself and made no inquiries, and with whom, for his own political protection, he wanted no direct contact”.

Davies added, “What he agreed to do was not simply expedient in the clinical interests of his daughter, Sonia, it was exploitation, it was criminal. It is no defence to say he acted out of love for his daughter. Her clinical needs cannot come at the expense of the exploitation of somebody in poverty.”

On March 14, The PUNCH reported that Beatrice denied involvement in the search for an organ donor for their ailing daughter, Sonia.

The PUNCH also reported that Ekweremadu claimed he involved the young man after he was advised by his doctor against seeking a kidney donor from among his family members.
