Meet APGA Candidate Who Won Because He Was Insulted That His Mother Sells Akara, Nnewi, Anambra State.


Two candidates from Nnewichi, Nnewi came out during APGA primaries as candidates to represent Nnewi North LGA in Anambra State House of Assembly. 

Mr N (lets call him that) is the son of a very rich man in Nnewi. He had his PhD in London. His father owns a factory. He introduces himself as the son of his father because he has no identity of his own, other than being attached to his father's company. His father spent millions of naira for his campaign and other 'big men' also supported him.

Meanwhile, Mr Smart Nonso Okafor is a poor fatherless young man but very intelligent and an orator. His father died when they were young. His widowed mother fries and sells (bean cakes) "akara" and with people's help, she managed to train her kids. Smart Nonso schooled at Oko Polytechnic and was a SUG President. He has also held so many positions in Youth Organizations in Anambra State.

During campaign, "Mr N" said he is so much qualified after all he is the son of Chief and it would be best suited to represent Nnewi peoples and that his opponent, Mr Smart Nonso "bu nwa nwanyi na eghe akara" (son of akara woman) "so he is not qualified".

This statement angered Nnewi people and they campaigned for Mr Smart Nonso instead. Some candidates who wanted to contest within APGA for the said post withdrew and started supporting Mr Smart Nonso. 

After the primaries, Mr Smart Nonso won and Mr N entered YPP and won the ticket to run for the said post. Again, his father "pumped" more money for his election campaign.

During the House Of Assembly election of last Saturday, people paid money to all akara frying women, provided firewood and ground beans and asked them to keep frying akara. Akara was declared free of charge in Nnewichi. Vote for Smart Nonso and eat as much as you want.

After the election, Mr N and his father with other rich men supporting them were bent on thwarting the result but God of the poor widowed mother said NO..Eventually Mr Smart Nonso was declared winner. There is jubilation everywhere in Nnewi.

THE General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, Saturday, maintained that the church will not be handed over to ‘rascals’ who are not portraying the image of Christ in their character.

Kumuyi made the declaration via a satellite broadcast from headquarters of the church in Lagos, while teaching on the topic, ‘Fear Not: The Promise Is Still Good’ during the Faith Clinic session at the ongoing Deeper Life National December Retreat, holding at the Deeper Life Conference Centre (DLCC), which started on Friday, December 21 and ends December 25.

He said the church will not condone any form of rascality and rebellion because the word of God never encourages that and is a strange behaviour capable of taking one to hell fire.

He said: “We are not going to hand the church over to rascals, over to rebellious people that want to scatter everything that is good that the Lord is doing. If you …
