Senator Chukwudi Utazi has taken his colleague, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah to the cleaners, describing him as an inexperienced Senator who has abandoned his legislative duties and enjoys 24/7 online media propaganda.
It will be recalled that last week Tuesday, Senator Chukwudi Utazi who represents Enugu North Senatorial District through a point of order during the senate plenary session, frowned at the attitude of some Nigerians, who have engaged in the act of de-marketing and blackmailing Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing (IVM) brand and the founder, Chief Innocent Chukwuma, because of local politics.
Although he apologized later, by releasing two press release, to clarify his Point of Order, which sparked outrage against Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, who represents Anambra South, which happens to be the Senatorial District where Chief Innocent Chukwuma hails from, Senator Ubah rejected the apology and accused him of allowing himself to be used for petty politics.
According to Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, he found the action of his colleague, very distasteful and demanded that he tenders a clear, proper and unreserved-apology to his constituents, Ndi Anambra, Enugu State, the Senate and the entirely Igbo Nation for bringing an unverified and fictitious fake social media report to the floor of the Nigerian Senate.
However, in a swift reaction to Ifeanyi Ubah’s embarrassing letter, Distinguished Senator Chukwudi Utazi, described him as an inexperienced Senator with only one (1) year and two months experience, advising him to kindly choose his battles in the National Assembly.
He revealed that his two press releases were done on the direction of their colleagues whom Senator Ubah lamented to, that the online publication was limiting his chances in the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra State.
According to Senator Utazi, as a Member of the Senate, he has the right to speak on any issue of his choice, whether verified or not, whether in his constituency or not, in Nigeria and world over, noting that Senator Ubah as a one year and two months Senator, cannot educate a ranking Senator like him, on the rights and privileges of a Senator.
He noted that instead of Senator Ifeanyi Ubah to dig deep to find out who is the author that use fictitious pseudo name to tarnish his name as he claimed, he was busy wasting his time trying to worry that he talked about the mention of the Senate Committee on Land Transport Vis a Vis the purchase of vehicles from Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Company Limited.
He advised Senator Ubah, to choose his battles in the National Assembly and never to drag him into Anambra State politics.
