When he claimed he had joined the All Progressives Congress, APC, a little bit over a yr ago, no longer a few contributors of the APC especially from his Emohua native executive area grumbled. Their grouse was that they be aware of the man Chief Emeh Glory Emeh too neatly.
in keeping with an Emohua indigene (identify with-held), Chief Emeh is like a tiger that can by no means change its spots.
“We informed our leaders that these of us from Emohua know this man very well however we have been disregarded. They welcomed him with open fingers however these days, like the everyday political fowl of passage, he has moved back to the PDP the place he believes he has the opportunity to scam the governor of large sums of money in the identify of conducting propaganda towards the APC,” he revealed.
It does not take much to realise that Chief Glory Emeh has already started work as a self-acclaimed propagandist and lie service provider. He seems to don’t have anything else in his propaganda scabbard to delight and rip-off Gov. Nyesom Wike and the PDP than to create and project a novel agenda of an imaginary division in Rivers APC.
For the person who prides himself in being a ‘media’ man’ by reason of planting gotcha tales in newspapers, began through planting a story of how the APC in Rivers State is split along different lines. Two weeks after, he has simply despatched out some other story below a pseudo title (Iheanyi Ezinwo) titled “hindrance of confidence rocks Rivers APC….as participants transfer in drove[sic] to ruling PDP.”
This line of propaganda or narrative serves Chief Emeh two functions. He makes use of it to accentuate his imaginary dooms day for the APC in Rivers State, one thing the suitable considering public recognize is just not authentic. The 2d purpose is to check out and justify his ignominious and shameful defection to PDP searching for filthy lucre, a movement even his private Assistant (PA) refused to do along with his boss. there is not any gainsaying that his closest buddies rebuffed his persistent try of luring them to depart the APC and subscribe to the PDP. Tuth is that the person who regales in having made a fortune from former Governor Peter Odili through propaganda went alone to the PDP.
the true fight for Chief Glory Emeh should now not be towards Rivers APC, the uphill job prior to him will have to be how to launder his picture as a notorious liar and serial betrayer ahead of his outdated buddies in PDP. he is known to have betrayed everyone else that has crossed his section in existence. The list of his victims is too lengthy for the distance on hand here.
for sure, Chief Glory Emeh has a penchant for giant ideas and sees opportunities to make cash from propaganda where nobody else does. He confesses to somebody that cares how he made a lot money selling media-associated dummies to former Gov. Peter Odili when he served below the latter. Emeh ceaselessly narrates how he created some native tabloids, cloned present ones fascinated with the purpose of propaganda consistent with the textbooks of Chief Emeh.
while in APC, he tried to carry from his old scripts however didn’t find simple victims to sell his dummies to. His factors had been sparsely studied, uncovered and overlooked. obviously his failure to promote these dummies for big money contributed to his determination to return to his outdated PDP camp the place the Rivers State governor will be made to purchase his schemes whereas Chief Emeh smiles to the financial institution.
then again, he may just face a huge stumbling block as there are already a few handlers of the governor’s media actions. past seeking to individually bulldoze his technique to secure something for himself immediately from Gov. Nyesom Wike, Chief Emeh is more likely to find out that like the nice old pronouncing goes, ‘all that glitters is not gold.’
by means of a ways, essentially the most daunting problem for Chief Emeh Glory Emeh is having to extract the boldness of many of the PDP participants and Gov. Nyesom Wike who be aware of Chief Emeh so smartly and in all probability greater than they know the again of their palms.
Given the chance, i’d advise members of Rivers APC not be concerned with the planted articles and other lies beneath all forms of pseudo names emanating from Chief Emeh as he has only one function: to color Rivers APC as balkanised and diminishing. When the general public fail to spot that occur, he’ll naturally run out of ideas as his handiest function is to eke out big money from his new victims. Nothing more.
