Ebonyi 2023: Clergyman breaks gist, tells new dream on guber-seat


Ahead of 2023, the electioneering year, a Clergyman from Ebonyi State, Evangelist Austin Ezeora-Aligwe, broke a new gist by revealing a particular clan to produce next governor of the state according to his recent dream.
Evangelist Ezeora-Aligwe, who is a lecturer at the Federal Polytechnic Ado-Ekiti, in his dream, saw  Izhi people in Ebonyi State celebrating one of his  sons for emerging the governor of the state.

He shared the dream on our social media platform, congratulating the clan for the great feat while expressing optimism that it would come to pass in 2023.

Hear him:  "In my dream last night, I saw Izhi people celebrating the victory of Izhi man as Governor of Ebonyi State. I saw Izhi people uniting, dancing and laughing in excitement. Men of God in their good numbers were praying in Thanksgiving to and God Almighty, gospel artists singing to the hearing of the Heavenly Angels, traditional worshipers with the famous masquerade (ogbodo-enyi) were dancing and  jubilating.

"The Ishi-uke Izhi opened the ceremony with the blessing of the eight number big kolanuts. The most exciting part of the ceremony was the interview granted by a prominent emeritus Senator from Izhi clan to men of the press thus:

"Press: Chief please what have you to say about this landslide victory of Izhi governor. 

"Senator: Our joy know no bounds as you can see that both IGBOJIMA and UNWUEWRA are all here for the celebration. 

"Press: Chief what happened to the perceived  kindred dichotomy that hitherto bedeviled Izhi people. 

"Senator: My dear, I want you to get it correct, Izhi are one people from creation. Izhi people were being deceived by political gladiators from other clans in Ebonyi state, simply because it was not yet God's time for us to lead Ebonyi State but now that God's time has come for Izhi man to lead Ebonyi State, you are going to see the difference, this is as a result of the long aged hospitality and hardwork of Izhi people. It's not going to be a family government as it were in some states and Ebonyi State before now. The Distinguished Senator however, remarked that this is the first time in the history of Ebonyi State that contestants both the governor elect and those that lost the election are together for the swearing in ceremony. 

"I woke up from sleep and quickly prayed God to perfect His good plans for Izhi governorship project come 2023. Remember I rarely suffer from malaria attack, Am optimistic that Heavenly Powers have answered our collective prayers. Izhi Nnodo Ekumenyi kwenu!. Ge oduru Izhi le ree ooooooo!"

Evangelist Ezeora-Aligwe, however, charged Izhi people to be steadfast in their prayers while urging them to eschew what ever differences by embracing one another as brothers and sisters.

Still on the
 2023 Governorship election in Ebonyi State, indigenes of the State under the auspices of Association of Ebonyi State Indigenes in Diaspora (AESID) have rejected any zoning agreement, as they insisted that competence, capability and credibility should be the standard for anyone to succeed Governor Dave Umahi.

The group said: “Ebonyi people truly deserve nothing but the best, most credible and competent hand it can get from any part of the State who understands the prevailing challenges of anthropogenic poverty, lack of human empowerment, health and educational deficiencies arising from poor policy planning and executions among other negative trends and its attendant consequences on our people.”


The group in a statement released to newsmen by its President Amb. Paschal Oluchukwu, Thursday in Abuja, said the campaign in the media by some interests to respect ‘charter of equity’ does not exist.

“As various political parties in Nigeria gear-up for congresses at the Wards, Local Government, State and National levels, it has become indubitable that political activities have raved up as expected with many analysts and pundits fully up in their game.”

“Whereas, the situation is not any different in Ebonyi, the calls in some quarters for the mediocre acts of zoning of political offices have once again been brought to bear in the debate over who succeeds Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi in 2023. Those who engineer this premise their position on what they term equity and fairness in their delusional fantasy to keep an ‘equity bond’ that neither exists nor has ever been manifest in Ebonyi politics."

“As a governance and accountability platform, AESID feels very strongly that it is also part of our core mandate to bring unbiased analysis on political debates in our dear State, not only putting the records very straight but also picturing the future that Ebonyi truly deserves.”

“Having remained the most outstanding accountability platform in the State with our memberships drawn across the entire State, we would not watch a section of self-interests seekers, paid political pemutators, jobbers and hatchets men mislead, misdirect or misinform Ebonyi people as they battle to choose a credible and competent leader who would take-over the baton as Governor David Nweze Umahi’s successor.”


“It bothers placing properly on record that the so-called, non-existent ‘charter of equity’ which some rented script writers are bandying in the media does not exist and people from the three Senatorial zones of the State have equally vied for the coveted position of the Governor of the Salt of the nation”.

“In our deep reflections, we recall that in 1999 when Dr. Sam Egwu from the Ohaukwu axis of Ebonyi North Senatorial zone ran for Governorship under the PDP, current Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu of Ebonyi South also vehemently contested for the same position under the defunct All People’s Party, APP.”

“Similarly, Ambassador Frank Ogbuewu of Ikwo origin in the Central axis contested against Sam Egwu in his quest for a second term in office in 2003 under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance. This time under ANPP, Dr. Onu also later came back to the ballot in 2007 to vie for the same position eight years after in the election to pick a successor to Egwu which was eventually won by Chief Martin Elechi of the PDP who hails from Ikwo in the Central Senatorial zone of the State."

“In 2011 when Elechi sought for another term in office, Senator Julius Ucha of the same Central zone under the ANPP also contested against him. The records of political events in the 2015 Governorship election are still very fresh in our mind as Labour Party’s Edward Nkwegu who hails from Izzi in the North ran strongly against PDP’s incumbent Governor David Umahi from the South who emerged as the winner of the election.”


"Owing more to the fact that by what could be justified as divine providence, the three Senatorial zones despite these contests have all tasted power via the occupation of the Governorship seats in the State, it is therefore wisdom for Ebonyians to anchor their search for Umahi’s successor on the tripod stand of competence, capacity and credibility which would ultimately translate into such a leader’s ability to reverse the numerous growing negative statistics and economic woes that the current government of Umahi has brought upon our dear State.”

“Besides, power as such analysts should have been aware by now only comes from above and it is never given but taken. Much more than the zone of an aspirant, AESID would, we reiterate implore Ebonyi people to continue to study the records in and out of office of any contender and place same side-by-side with the prevailing challenges facing the young state and seek out for only those who can reverse the negative indices.”

While urging the youths in Ebonyi State to get more involved in the political process by joining political parties, the group also called on all Ebonyians of voting age who are yet to register to take advantage of the ongoing INEC’s Continuous Voter Registration to register and get their PVCs “as that is their only power to change the narrative in 2023 and elect a credible candidate.”
