Prince Engr Arthur Eze was billed to meet with President Buhari on Friday. He was to meet Mr President with some select ndi Igwe from Anambra state. Some of the Igwes had arrived Abuja ahead of the visit. They were only waiting for a signal and they will move down to the Villa for the August meeting.
But the signal did not come. Some people had moved ahead of the Ukpo billionaire to block him from seeing Mr President.
It gathered that Southeast governors are not comfortable with that meeting. They are disturbed that Arthur Eze who had criticized their handling of local government funds especially those who refused to conduct LG elections would use the opportunity to ask Mr President to withhold or probe how they have expended the LG allocations.
With that fear, it was learnt that the southeast govs were behind the move to block Arthur Eze from meeting Mr President.
A governorship aspirant on the platform of APGA who is a business front to Madam is said to be leading the fight to stop Eze-nu-Ukpo at Abuja. He represents the interest of Agu Awka and he was been heavily mobilised.
But Prince Engr Arthur Eze is not relenting. He is currently fighting back. He is deploying all necessary resources and logistics to reschedule his appointment with Mr President.
Presently, the situation is not clear. Those sympathetic to Arthur are working hard to clear all the lies they leveled against him at the presidency. Those who have vowed to block him are also deploying their own strategy.
But, why are they afraid that Arthur wants them to account for LG fund? The battle has continued. Funny enough, these same people fighting Arthur Eze are still calling him on phone begging.
Arthur is angry that what seemed to be an attempt to resolve the crisis between him and the governor has been destroyed by the latest power-play at Abuja.
