Like the adage which says, when you point a finger at another person, four of your fingers point at you, the caricature made of Senator Omo-Agege Ovie, as being handsomely rewarded with the position of Deputy Senate President of the 9th Assembly, for allegedly sponsoring hoodlums who invaded the 8th National Assembly and successfully escaped with the mace, is playing out in Imo state presently.

Barr. Steve Asimobi, who was recently arrested along with Barr. Paschal Onwukaike, for violently destroying result sheets and other electoral materials during the collation of results of the gubernatorial election in Imo state on March 10, 2019, has been appointed as Senior Legislative Aide to Senator Ethelbert Okorocha.

The appointment was made public by the Media Aide to Okorocha, Sam Onwuemeodo, who was also retained by the former Governor, this time as Special Adviser (SA) Media.

Others whose appointments by Senator Okorocha was made public include that of Hon. (Dr) Steve Orji of the Voice of the People (VOP) fame who once claimed that President Olusegun Obasanjo, had empowered him to wipe out poverty on the faces of Imolites. So many women were mobilized and the passport photographs collected for soft loans that never saw the light of the day.

Others appointed as Legislative Aides to the Senator of Imo West are Barr. Ikenna Emeh, and Dr Ebere Nzewuji, as Personal Assistant (PA).

Interestingly none of the new appointees is from Ideato North or South indicating that Okorocha has learnt a bitter lesson on how not to be a clannish lord, who concentrates every sensitive position in his family and kinsmen, most of who as mediocre lacked the appropriate skills or experiences to perform on the job. Perhaps, he now realizes that as a Senator, he must rely on experts and intellectuals to survive.

Hence, he has carefully identified legal luminaries and scholars to help him draft bills at the red chambers.
