OWERRIâ€”Imo politicians have been advised to imbibe the habit of going home to re-strategise and work harder for the next elective contests instead of digging trenches and laying landmines for their successful opponents to stumble and fall.
The Chairman, National Youths Council ,NYC, Obowo Local Government Area chapter, Prince Daniel Chukwuocha, made the appeal in a chat with Vanguard.
â€œWhen a real sportsman loses to an opponent, he does not go about digging trenches or laying landmines for his opponent to stumble and fall. Instead, he goes home, trains harder for the next contest,â€ Chukwuocha said.
While insisting that â€œthis is what Imo politicians ought to be doing,â€ Chukwuocha said,Â â€œwe will be doing a lot of disservice to our state if we unduly resort to distracting a Governor through unnecessary legal tussles.â€
He said, â€œI think we need to review our strategies and think like other states where people see development from the perspective of collective responsibility.â€
He was particularly pleased that in spite of the distractions, Governor Ikedi Ohakim had remained focused and forging ahead in various development initiatives, adding that he would have recorded more successes if he had the support of all.
