Owerri – Popular musician and ex-Chairman of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN), Charles Oputa (aka Charly Boy), has advised the Imo State Governor-Elect, Chief Emeka Ihedioha, to gird his loins so as to tackle the challenges facing the state or to be prepared for a showdown.
“If Ihedioha is serious to work, we will work with him else we will give him hellfire,” he threatened.
Oputa read the riot act while speaking with newsmen shortly after the presentation of the Nigerian Social Contact and the Stake-holder Engagement to the South-East and South-South regions in Owerri.
The programme was powered by the Omudodu Youths Foundation (AKA our MumuDonDo Movement), supported by Catalyst For Global Peace And Justice Initiative and Ford Foundation.
Admitting that the Governor-elect has constituted technical transition committee to facilitate his inauguration and had indicated his interest to work with the best brains in the state, the popular musician argued that the South-East could no longer afford to be ruled by quacks saying “so, go and tell Ihedioha to be prepared to work for the people because we will henceforth hold our leaders responsible for lack of performance.”
He explained that the Omudodu Youths Foundation is a national re-awakening social movement that is focused on mobilizing Nigerians especially young men and women to effectuate a social change in the country.
“We are a Coalition of Nigerians who are tired of the present norm, frustrated by our crippling system and determined to change our national narrative.
“Our goal today is not only to present social contract to you, but to hopefully enlist ardent believers in the campaign and people who will become dependable ambassadors of the project by partnering with us to disseminate this good massage to every nook and crannies of our country,” Oputa stated.
