Ikenna Iyiebu who is aspiring for the seat of Idemili North/South Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives in the forthcoming 2023 general election will bring goodwill being associated with Iyiebu family to bear in politics if elected, so said his Media aide Favour Onochie , Ikenna who is an elder brother to Obinna Iyiebu popularly known as Obi Cubana is aspiring for House of Representatives under the Platform of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA)
Onochie assured that Ikenna will bring the goodwill of Iyiebu family to give Idemili North/South quality representation at Abuja while reacting to a statement published in Daily Sun newspaper and credited to a chieftain of APGA in Oba Chief Emeka Njeakor advising Ikenna Iyiebu not to venture into politics because God has blessed Iyiebu family and the family also have been empowering people all over the place with God’s blessings upon them through philanthropic services and thus the family need not to delve into politics.
Onochie faulted the advise from Njeakor on the ground that political leadership anywhere in the this world requires people of goodwill, people of sound background, people of track record of success in credible field of human endeavor and people of credible reputations such as the Iyiebu family noting that it is neither right nor safe to leave political leadership to people of questionable characters or people who depends on public office to earn their living.
He added “Considering the situation of things in Idemili North/South Federal Constituency someone like Ikenna is the ideal to serve the people in the Federal House, so the advice from Chief Njeakor is childish and funny and has to be dismissed because if you ask Ikenna who is a man of goodwill from a credible family not to seek opportunity to render political services to his people, automatically you are making the way for people who are not qualified or people with questionable characters to come and occupy political positions
“So for me and for us in the Ikenna Iyiebu team for Idemili North/South seat in the Federal House of Representatives 2023 it is a welcome development to have someone from a credible family to.come out and offer himself for the service of his people, so Njeakor should rather throw his weight behind Ikenna and join hands with us to ensure his victory at the polls next year.
