Retired Nollywood old-time star actor, Legal Practitioner and failed politician Bar. Kenneth Okonkwo, best known by his screen name Andy ( from his outstanding major role in the ever famous Living in Bondage Movie) released a rather controversial statement which has earned him well-deserved critics from Igbo people.
In his recent statement, the Nsukka born politician and Enugu State Gubernatorial aspirant under the umbrella All Progressive Congress (APC) said the Igbo people will wander in the wilderness if they did not vote Buhari in the upcoming Nigerian general election slated to take place in 6 months time. The statement which sounds stupid and rather insulting to one of the biggest Ethnic group in Africa has refused to die down as the social media trend keeps on attracting serious criticism from majority Igbo people.
It is very clear that Barrister Ken was trying very hard to please Buhari to the determent of his people and one is bounder to wonder if anything good will ever come from such person. Political statement is one thing, political stupidity is yet another. Many people have their different likes, hates and what they totally despise. Igbo as a people hate sycophancy and that is what Ken Okonkwo has displayed, unlimited possibility of sycophancy and the worse, human worship. This is not even trying to state how pathetic, stupid, awry and outright dumb such statement sounds, no, this is to make it clear how Nigerian and to an extent, African political mentality is the biggest stumbling block to the people of Africa. Here we see a young man that is ready to do anything to please his political superior even to the detriment of his people whom he is supposed to serve and
The Stupid Statement.
In summary, Bar Kenneth Okonkwo is a typical example of a complete useless politician cum leader I don’t expect anywhere near Igboland. Rochas Okorocha’s stupidity is enough for us and anther sycophant is too much to bear.
