Beware of political jobbers … Ihedioha warned

Governor-elect of Imo state, Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, has been advised to be wary of political jobbers and pretenders who might present themselves to him.
A political activist in Imo State, Chief Andrew Okeke, gave the advice when he spoke to newsmen, recently, in Owerri.
He alleged that some of those who are now congratulating the governor-elect were among the 10 governorship candidates that petitioned for the cancellation of the March 9 election that produced Ihedioha.
Okeke suspected that some of them could turn out to be spies from opposing political camps out to gather information to run the governor-elect down.
According to him, it would not be wise for the governor-elect to allow the “wolves in cheep’s clothes” to come around him at the moment.
Chief Okeke further said that the pretenders and jobbers were now presenting themselves as those who worked for the governor-elect, saying that their hearts are full of treachery.
He cited the shakes pearean Julius ceaser who was warned to “beware of the ides of march”, adding that the “ides of March are come, but not gone”.
Rt. Hon. Ihedioha contested and worn the governorship of the state on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), beating 69 other candidates from various political parties.
While some of the candidates have congratulated him, others such as Ugwumba Uche Nwosu of the Action Alliance (AA) have indicated their intension to challenge his election at the tribunal.
