Severally, I have watched an extract from the debate between Dr. Chima Anyaso and Barr. Ben Kalu who are slugging it out for the soul of Bende Federal House of Representatives.

I could count up to seven times I've watched the tape, but yet to believe that politics could get to a point where an APC candidate will openly wish away a successful intervention from a fellow young Abian who deemed it feet to provide free education for the people of Bende LGA in Abia State by investing his sweat some years ago to build a school, pay teachers, make it free for children who perhaps, may not have had the opportunity to have formal education.

Tufiakwa. Something has gone wrong. 

Ben Kalu of APC echoed in the video below, " The land where the school is built belongs to the Government and will be collected from him very soon"

Let me quickly trace the background of the school; 

Dr Anyaso saw a need to build a school for indigent pupils of Bende LGA who may find it difficult to have formal education going by the high cost of education in the Country. It was his quest to provide this important foundation for pupils that he built the edifice with modern facilities, made it free to reduce number of out of school children, reduce burden on the parents as well as reduce crime in Bende LGA. The school has successfully ran for 11 years without any hitch and has been commended by well meaning Nigerians. 

It was this extraordinary kindness that caught my attention and thousands of Bende indigenes who have vowed to show their appreciation at the poll on the February 16. 
What Anyaso has done in Bende should be a pointer for what he could achieve given a bigger platform like the Federal house of Representatives.
On the lips of well meaning Bende stakeholders, 'Chima can point to what he has done for Bende, he has shown capacity to deliver by giving to the Local government without demanding a repayment. It is our turn to show appreciation by voting PDP'. 
Abians were shocked, when a Bende son Barr Ben Kalu, exposed the APC's grand plan of illegally closing the school that has given assurance of hope to Bende indigenes. He has shown publicly his disdain for anything good in Bende and should not be allowed to discourage others from developing our area.
Not done by that threat, he went ahead to bring up a dead and childish allegations against Anyaso by using APC machineries to witch- hunt his opponent (Anyaso) whose only crime was to exercise his franchise as a popular philanthropist who has the interest of his people at heart. 

Abians should rise up and condemn Ben's actions. Ben should be mindful of his wicked act, knowing clearly that prayers of the kids he is trying so hard to stop their education is powerful to hinder him from divine progress. 
It could be noted that this is not the first time an attempt has been made by Ben and OUK to forcefully eject children from the school with the allegation that the land belongs to Government. 

Questions on everyone's lip is whether Ben or OUK or APC has the control of government in Abia State to determine which property belongs to her or has been mandated by government to fight on her behalf ?
How can Ben arrogate the position of Government to himself to the point of fighting for alleged properties of Abia Government or preempting government actions against someone that has given hope to children through his education interventions?
Bende Elders should call Ben to order. His devilish wish and politics of wickedness could only survive where there is no one to advice against tyranny and wickedness. 
It has gone to confirm the general belief that APC is a party whose wickedness of their members and the wish of their leaders are to constantly threaten and criticize people oriented policies in the State only because their party forbids development, education and peaceful coexistence.
