Great Tension As Governor Ikpeazu Receives Powerful Marching Order, Over The Blocking Of Free Speech

 
 
The Online Media Publishers, has on Tuesday, condemned the attempt by the Abia State Government to gag the Media.
This was made known by Comrade Ugochukwu Nwankwo, Chairman, Abia Online Media Publishers.
The statement read in full: 
The World Over and in all Democracies across the globe, constructive criticism is an integral part of governance. 
Opposition elements are there to remind the government in power that there is an alternative structure waiting to grab their stool, should they fail to deliver on the mandate given by the people.
Thus, every visionary and progressive government that truly wants to succeed, usually courts and improves on the loopholes magnified by her critics, because these days and in our clime, some people around the man in power only sing praises, in order to curry favour. 
It is on this note that the Abia Online Media Publishers Organisation, the umbrella body of all bloggers and online media practitioners in Abia State, condemns in strong terms the recent audio recording of an intimidating phone call allegedly made to an Abian, by Erondu Uchenna Erondu Jnr, one of the Aides to the Governor of Abia State, threatening Fire and Brimstone, spitting fire and raising hell on how he will so deal with the young man, if he dares to criticize the Government of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu. 
That phone call, where in the Governor’s Aide boasted of the many people he has dealt with, and threatening to put the young man away, if he dares to exercise his freedom of speech, is the height of barbarism and an exhibition of power drunkenness that should be condemned by every well meaning Abian, because it will amount to setting a wrong precedence that may trigger a breakdown of law and order in the State. 
That said, we also advise opposition elements and critics to be constructive in their approach, if truly the motive is in the overall good of the State.
We call on the Governor of Abia State, to call this particular Aide and his cohorts to order, and also be wary of the character of the individuals he puts in positions of trust, on behalf of our people. 
None of us is more Abian than the other, and we are known as a peaceful people, and therefore, cannot afford to allow our State degenerate into a society bereft of civility and peaceful coexistence. 
Enough of this harassment, intimidation, and maiming of government critics in Abia State.
We have confidence that the Governor has the capacity to nip this ugly trend in its bud now.
Long Live Online Media Publishers 
Long Live Abia State 
Long Live The Federal Republic of Nigeria.
