The stakeholders said unless Emeka forgets about his review case at the Supreme Court, he might turn into a political leper when he gets defeated by Governor Uzodinma again.
Ex chairman of Iwuanyanwu Nationale, Price Lemmy Akakem, popular businessman and philanthropist, Chief John Enyogasi and chairman of Traditional Rulers Council in Orlu, Eze Godwin Okeke, revealed that Emeka Ihedioha could be heading to political perdition due to his stubbornness to insist on a matter that the Supreme Court already closed.
Chief John Enyogasi added that they were embarrassed by how Emeka Ihedioha had turned politics into a do-or-die affair.
His words, “He is still a young man with a lot of prospects. He should not do or say things that would be used against him tomorrow. Just like other important Nigerians have said, now is the time for Ihedioha to throw in the towel.”
