Several youths of Ihiala have debunked the claims by the Deputy Speaker of the Anambra State House of Assembly and Member Representing Ihiala II Constituency, Hon Paschal Agbodike that he recently empowered hundreds of youths in the region.
Hon Agbodike claims that he facilitated training and provided funds for start up to hundreds of youths in his constituency and in the bid to substantiate same put up a random picture taken at an event in Awka some years ago.
Reacting to this claim posted on Hon Agbodike’s official Facebook page, the alleged beneficiaries of the false empowerment expressed utter disappointment in the Deputy Speaker.
Mr Declan Okeke (Lord Sugar) who was spotted at the picture, was furious when he was contacted for comments, he said ‘This is Absurd and very Insulting This group picture was taken at the Alex Ekwueme Square, Awka when we went for World Youth Day(can’t remember the exact year🤦♂️). Ada Ohanebo from Okija also spotted in the picture maintained that the programme was never organized by Hon Agbodike and that she is never a beneficiary of any cham empowerment.
Mr Ifeanyi Ihedimbu from Isekke did not take it lightly. He said he is ready to appear anywhere to defend himself as he only attended a youth event and never an empowerment by the Deputy Speaker. But Hon Stanley Ugwumba who incidentally stepped down for Hon Agbodike in the 2019 election, only laughted it out and stated that this is a new low in politics.
He revealed that since Hon Agbodike was elected member representing their constituency, he has never benefitted anything. He further warned the lawmaker to stop using pictures they took at a state function for campaign.
A constituent, Mr Ukaigwe commented that the Lawmaker is a failure who is struggling to stage manage his failure. He said, “So conscience allow some politicians come out again to beg for vote!” Mr Ozoemena stated equivocally that the false claim betray a ‘yahoo yahoo represention’ which the people have rejected.
Hon Agbodike was reached for comment through his SA on Media, Hon Uche Muomife and curiously Mr Muomife admitted that the picture has nothing to do with empowerment. He insisted however that Hon Agbodike did empowerment and most of the people in the picture are beneficiaries. It remains to be seen what those in the picture, include Mr Festus Mgbokwenyi who already owned a school before Hon Agbodike was first elected will make of this hoax.
