I am not a praise singer -Uche Ogbuagu By Nick Chibunna

For the umpteenth time, Hon. Uche Ogbuagu, senior special assistant to Imo State Governor Owelle Rochas Okorocha on entertainment has debunked the assertions making the rounds that he is now a professional praise-singer, instead of the outspoken critic he used to be.

Speaking to Christian Voice recently during a Youth Programme at Amaimo, in the Ikeduru Local Government Area of Imo State, where he bagged a meritorious award, Hon Ogbuagu said “I have never changed, and would not change; I am religiously following the trends of events in the rescue government of Owelle Rochas and I am glad the ship of the state is on course.

The ace comedian who spoke on a number of topical issues including the place and faith of Ndigbo in the new All Progressives Party (APC), maintained that the new party remains the next best alternative for Igbo nation.

According to him, when the party is fully launched, Ndigbo would have no cause to regret, as the new arrangement would re-integrate Ndigbo into the main stream of Nigerian politics.

Asked to comment on the insinuations that his boss Owelle Rochas is biting more than he can chew by embarking on numerous projects which he was not sure to complete, he said the comments were the hardiwork of the opposition and detractors who will never see anything good in this present administration.

He said this administration had already shamed the doubting Thomases by its massive infrastructural developments and free education policy, adding that every project would be completed on schedule before the end of the tenure of this administration.

The man who waged relentless battles against the immediate past regime through comic jingles and funny stories said he is in politics to know what politicians do in the secret and how to handle them.
