I like the background of the picture. It says a lot about the style. The woods and the flowers,and the red wall colour all blend to create a style story that says a lot without words.
Her outstanding African outfits and confidence has proven to be a good move to promote the Africanness in Art for the world to see.
EXCLUSIVE TALK WITH THE JUST APPOINTED DG NEW MEDIA DIRECTORATE OF IMO PDP AND PRESIDENT NASELSA (ALUMNI).
My name is A.I.C. Akwarandu. From Ezinihitte Mbaise in Imo state.The last child in a family of three boys
Well, let me act like you don’t know. I graduated from Imo State University. I was an Imo star and still a star.
My duty is to speak for to the youth, for the youth anf the masses. Aside that, I am quietly employed and I work at the PDP office as the Drector of the new media department, That’s the person in charge of the new media directorate of imo PDP.
Knowing you for quite a while now, I see a lot have been happening around you and politics and you have always shown keen interest in politics and youths. I am curious to know? What Inspired you Into politics?
What inspired me into politics is my interest in human capital development. I believe that the greatest investment one can make is in human beings. No matter how those empowered forget u, there must be one person who will come back to say thank you. That thank you could be after you have lived your life and passed on. It could be while you are alive. But investing in humanity have no disadvantage to me. Just do it and not for returns.
Nice one, now you remind me of this quote: “ Humanity is not without answers or solutions regarding how to liberate itself from scenarios that invariably end with mass exterminations. Tools such as compassion, trust, empathy, love, and ethical discernment are already in our possession. The next sensible step would be to use them.”
You were a very active student and after graduation you are till date, you seem to have a lot of people following, motivating and cheering you. Are there any you will like us to meet?
My motivation is from God. I also motivate my self. I ask myself, what have u done? If I did today, what will make men and women of valour intercede on my behalf.
Alot of people motivated and still motivate me. My father had alot of impacts in me. May His souls rest in peace. I wish I can do all He advised me to. But as humans, I derail once in a while. But He did alot in my local upbringing. Yes, I call it local upbringing because I never had any exposure all through my secondary school except in my village and community. I had my early education there and only came out after my secondary sch. I know, if we had a university in my village, I would have ended up there……………………………My Boss Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, has played major roles in motivating me. This may be unknown to him but I can say that He has this father figure when ever you engage him in a discussion which will make you think about what ever you discussed with him. I don’t know my inclination with those called Emeka but I can say they are good. My Boss Emeka Oparah has motivated me also. He may not know, but He is a day to day motivation to me. ……My brother, Emeka too. That does not mean I don’t other people but since I found three Emeka’s, and very wonderful people, I had to go with them.
Wow, that’s cool having special people as a support system. Ok , considering the fact you have a vision for yourself and others, where do you see your self in the next three yea
In the next three years, I will be where God wants me to be. However, I will always tell God my choice in prayers. I wish to be in a place where I will be able to help people. I want to help those who are helpless. That’s my prayer and that’s where I want to be.
What’s your role as the current DG New media directorate Imo PDP ?
Well, my position is easy. Is easy because my state governor has failed and I have no need looking for what to say when I have what to say everywhere. You need to visit my state and see things for yourself. I am a proud imolite but the state has been reduced to nothing by those I call occupants of our government house. I pray for Ndi Imo, I know we shall say goodbye to this evil administration one day.
How do you do this?
We have print and electronic media. The advent of the social media created room for new media. Just like in Literature, when the Nigerian civil war happened, it have room for a new area of discuss. Initially, writers were occupied with issues of Colonialism, Tradition and things of the sort. But as the war have room to a new area of discuss, that’s how social media has given room to the new media which includes Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, watsapp, etc. As you know, it is filled with the young people. So, I have the duty of bringing them together for the good of our party.
So the likes, shares, and views, and follows are encouraging? Or do you have any competition? Or are u facing any challenge?
No challenge. I would have had if the government is performing. But they are not. So, no serious challenge.
Hahaha, unfortunately fortunate. Ok, so please may we have the page ddress.?
- Official people’s democratic party -PDP imo state on Facebook
- PDP imo state on twitter
Then, you are also the president of the Nasels Alumni… how far has the association gone in terms of meeting the core needs of students of English and literary studies In Nigeria compared to other Associations e.g science as you see are a little more facilitated with research materials, empowerment, welfare and financial support than some other field?
We are online and we meet physically. We are not ghost. I have a directorate team of more than 200 persons. ……….As for NASELSA, I have tried my best though in acting capacity to ensure that we get our constitution ready. We are also working on registration with CAC. The welfare of our members is also a top issue. We ensure that we do our best for each other. As one of us, I was at your weeding. That’s to show you that we mean business. We are committed towards supporting ourselves in any way we can.
The students are not left out. As our mother association, we do all we can to support them. Early this year, I sponsored a debate contest in their conference. We also donated 1000 copies of minner note book to them. We will continue to support them
Do you have any thing to say for the you and your fans to pin down?
To,the youth , I say they should keep their eyes on the ball. The future is bright. Very bright but for only those that make it bright……………………..And to my fans, fellow, and followers,
I say thanks to them for always supporting me. I call on them to join hands let’s do this together and put the devil to a mess with this evil leadership. I know God will do it for us.
Thank you very much to our relentlessly humble, hardworking comerade, having you on this talk was fun, enlightening and inspiring too. Thank you all for the read, I hope this interview was informative.
