Much has been said, and warnings has gone out severally against Adams Oshiomhole’s rascality and incessant insults on Pa OBJ with impunity. Yet, he threw caution to the winds.
Oshiomhole is synonymous with former (late) Nigerian Senate President – Sen. Dr. Chuba Okadigbo in 1981, when he took pleasure in insulting Rt. Hon. Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe of blessed memory. The consequence was better imagined than experienced.
Howbeit, In a matured, mild and polite response, Rt. Hon. Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe said this to Dr. Chuba Okadigbo;
“My boy, may you live to your full potential, ascend to a dizzy height as is possible for anyone of your political description in your era to rise. May you be acknowledged world-wide as you rise as an eagle atop trees, float among the clouds, preside over the affairs of fellow men…. as leaders of all countries pour into Nigeria to breathe into her ear.
But then, Chuba, if it is not the tradition of our people that elders are roundly insulted by young men of the world, as you have unjustly done to me, may your reign come to an abrupt and shattering close. As you look ahead, Chuba, as you see the horizon, dedicating a great marble palace that is the envy of the world, toasted by the most powerful men in the land, may the great big hand snatch it away from you. Just as you look forward to hosting the world’s most powerful leader and shaking his hands, as you begin to smell the recognition and leadership of the Igbo people, may the crown fall off your head and your political head fall off your shoulders.
None of my words will come to pass, Chuba, until you have risen to the very height of your power and glory and health, but then you will be hounded and humiliated and disgraced out of office, your credibility and your name in tatters forever…”
These are words of late Pa Nnamdi Azikiwe. It may interest you to know that these words came to fulfilment, Dr. Chuba Okadigbo received a just recompense of his gross disrespect to the elder statesman. If judgement unavoidably came to Okadigbo, obviously, Adams Oshimhole’s case can not be anything different.
In fact, as I type this post, Adams Oshimhole has lost anything, and everything called peace of mind. It is no news to harp again that his APC party has loss total confidence on him, even as he has questions to answer before DSS. Many APC state governors sees him as a curse to their party. He has an ongoing battle with governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state, and governor Amosun of Ogun state.
Just recently, specifically on 30/11/2018, the Zamfara state governor, Abdul Aziz Yari threatened to attack him if he dares to step into Zamfara state. All these are harbinger of endless woes that would betide him the moment Pa OBJ opens up his mouth to place a curse on himself.
A grasshopper that refused to heed to advise would end up in the bird’s gizzard.
