Some days ago, a video showing Dr ABC Agbazuere, the Chief of Staff to Abia state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, spraying money on prophet Odumeje in his office trended on the social media. The video went almost unnoticed until Igbos For A Progressive Nigeria (IPAN) posted it on their twitter handle. The outrage was immediate and the video went viral as Nigerians both home and abroad condemned the politician and the flamboyant pastor. Most Nigerians, especially, those from Abia State, wondered why the blatant waste of money by the politician while the state is heavily underdeveloped.
Today, ONITSHA GRA finally tracked down Mr Oliver Okeke, the ever-busy Head of Media and the South East coordinator of IPAN, and used the opportunity to find out more about what really transpired.
Could you introduce yourself to Nigerians?
