The foray of Ohiri O Lewis – the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Ohiri Homes Limited – into partisanship, was greeted with great excitement. His choice of political party, though a surprise to many, also explains a greater vision and a radical departure from general expectation. While some political permutations as up-held by some book-makers had favoured the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and alternate All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Ohiri's entry to the fold of the All Progressives Congress (APC) hugely ignited more confusion to many that ordinary lack political knowledge and its dynamism.

The Obingwa-born businessman and national convener, One Destiny Organisation (ODO) has not hidden his love and unquenchable support to President Muhammadu Buhari. His resolve to set up a pro-Buhari organisation that presently mobilises the youth and other Nigerians across the six geo-political zones of the country practically explains his dream for a stabilised and prosperous Nigeria under Buhari. 

Though an APC member from Abia, Ohiri, who is also a patron/member of Friends of Buhari (FoB) has never assumed a confrontational posture with his kinsmen who are of the PDP and APGA affiliations. His politics is clearly separated from rancour, bitterness and treachery. Little wonder he throws his door wide open to everyone, irrespective of political leaning. Besides, Ohiri has always preached peace and togetherness to gladiators and political power-seekers. There is no gain saying that Ohiri, popularly called NG-1 Designer, has re-defined politics in his own unique form.

A typical Ohiri and his style of politics is the manner he organised two different political programmes for the two major political parties in Abia. It was first the Abia APC Mega Rally held about three months ago at Umuahia Township stadium. He provided his state-of-the-art equipment and hi-tech sound system to the party, at a relatively reduced cost. He was equally on ground to supervise his technicians and utility workers, towards ensuring a hitch-free programme.

After a while, the PDP approached him. The party equally sought Ohiri’s services. Of course, the cost wasn’t a problem, either. He made it clear to the organisers that the Ukwa La Ngwa declaration for Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, his cousin from same compound, equally involved him as a son of the soil. The programme, which took place on Tuesday April 2, 2018 was superlatively successful, as six trucks laden with all manners of equipment, sound system and giant generators were deployed to lit the venue. The event was, indeed, colourful; courtesy of Ohiri's equipment and supplies.

What manner of politician is Ohiri, one may ask? A member of APC and close ally of President Buhari and brothers? A brother to Dr Okezie Ikpeazu and supporter of his government? A brotherto Dr Alex Otti and supporter of his struggle and dream for a better Abia State? What are the likely lessons one can draw from the uniqueness and brotherliness that drives him politically?

Well, Ohiri remains a man to watch as 2019 draws nearer.

Uzoukwa, a seasoned journalist and PR practitioner, is currently pursuing his Doctorate Degree on Mass Communication in Imo State University (IMSU), Owerri.
