Are Chuks Akunna, Nze Ezeocha, Barr. Edeoga’s Abuja Lawyers?

From Dooshima Akpur (Abuja)

After falling to prove his case beyond reasonable doubt at the tribunal against Governor Peter Ndubuisi Mbah, the Enugu governorship candidate, Barr. Chijioke Edeoga has delusionally and desperately taken his political deceits to Abuja, where he has recruited jobless and mercenary journalists in the likes of Chuks Akunna and Nze Ezeocha to do yeoman job for him in the media.

This is even when the duo of Akunna and Ezeocha lack simple and professional legal and electoral knowledge of election cases in Nigeria.

None of the duo has even an ordinary diploma in law, let alone a degree to warrant them to appear on AIT station in Abuja and be talking nonsense and rubbish about the expected Enugu governorship election petition judgement.

Akunna, who served as Chief Press Secretary to Dr. Chris Ngige and Chief Andy Uba, after their brief stays as Governors of Anambra State, has been running from pillar to post in the media circle without a permanent or payable job for over a decade, is now Barr. Edeoga’s media pawn.

That is why Akunna has made attacking Governor Mbah on his social media handles and misinforming people about the outcome of Enugu governorship election, as a permanent and full-time job. On daily basis, If Akunna is not on AIT or other broadcast stations in Abuja misleading and misinforming people about Governor Mbah and the outcome of Enugu governorship election, he will be doing so on his social media handles especially Facebook and Twitter.

Akunna has become so persistent that people have began to query his motive and why he condescended to such hatchet job at his age.

Partnering Akunna in the mercenary job for Barr. Edeoga in the media is a freelance sport journalist, Nze Ezeocha. Ezeocha, who has been a freelance sport journalist for decades has nothing to offer on election and political issue like governorship election matter that is before the tribunal.

It is quite unfortunate that despite the fact the duo were once active journalists, they don’t even know that it amounts to prejudice and contempt of court to discuss pending case in court in the media or public.

Watching Akunna and Ezeocha misyarning and misleading people on AIT live television programme about the expected Enugu governorship election judgment was very shameful, appalling and pathetic. This is because they made mockery of their profession, themselves and exposed their ignorance and motive.

They did more damage to Barr. Edeoga’s case than remedy. Although, anybody who followed the tribunal proceedings and sittings will attest to the fact that Barr Edeoga has no case against Mbah’s victory. Hiring Akunna and Ezeocha to appear on AIT live programme to discuss it is like adding more salt to injury.
