Knowing this to be one of the busiest seasons of the year which has unfortunately remained the season of harvest and self-enrichment amongst a few within the political terrain of the Nigerian State, the unrepentant Crown prince of Aba whom has remained a PDP mole of destruction to the Progressives is at his script play again instigating that he, Paul has been endorsed as the Guber flag bearer for Abia State by the President and the First Lady. Thus, setting the stage for the ancestral dance to begin just as drummers roll out their drums to beat the pattern of the compromised gods.
Let it be on the records that on 14th of September 2018, the integrity of President Mohammad Buhari was unfortunately misrepresented by this desperate Prince Paul Ikhonne who was opportune to join his father HRH Eze Isaac Ikhonne and other Royal Father’s on a courtesy visit to the President, at the presidential villa in solidarity for his re-election bid. The Innocent royal fathers were on the visit to discuss the way forward for the southeast.
It was in the course of the discussion that Eze Isaac Ikhonne made mention to the president of his intent to hand over his royal duties to his son, Prince Paul Ikhonne due to old age after a reconsideration due to the plea of other royal fathers to revert the curse he placed on Prince Paul some years ago for some serious criminal offence he committed against his family and the disgrace that lingered thereafter with the police at the time of the incidence.
And most importantly the national embarrassment Paul had caused the APC national Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu during the 2011 Guber elections of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) revolving around the lump sum of #30m campaign funds which Paul carted away with which he relocated his family relocation to Canada. It would be recalled also that same antics was in the play during the 2015 Guber/Presidential elections of Dr. Ayim Nyerere when Prince Paul was entrusted with campaign funds of about #10m which grew winds and never returned for campaign use.
Knowing fully well that the President due to his level of policy and integrity would not want to interfere with both judicial and party matters, let alone interfere with matters concerning Abia State primaries especially now that candidates purchased forms at the sum of #22.5m and have been made to submit on Thursday, 13th of Sept 2018, it is of great importance to observe what transpired at the presidency with regards to the raising of Prince Paul’s hand by Mr.President.
The congratulatory gesture from the president to Paul was in recognition of the preparation of taking over his father’s position as The Eyin II of Aba and nothing political.

However, the desperation of Prince Paul has made him a destabilizer in Abia APC having being in court with the Controversial Chief Ikechi Emenike to hold a parallel state Executives and lay many court cases against the APC in Abia with connivance with Dr Victor Ikpeazu (PHD) whom is in return sponsoring the 2019 purported Governorship bid of Prince Paul under the platform of the APC so that he is empowered to help thwart the efforts of APC and further cause destabilization with the formidable structure of the APC.
