Oga why didn't you wait for your retirement before venturing into politics ? Everything is not all about politics.Your position in the bank is a good one,you are rich and comfortable as the GMD of the bank.If you loose,hmmm.

Dogs will do a better job at ruling Abia than the present or past governors. One wonders if the people there are humans for them not to even hit the streets protesting. Meanwhile this new chap head na wao. Plenty contours for chics to smoosh when they working for their money.

@Mr Dozie.. at your top management level, you ought to be seriously paying big attention to little details. Why on earth is your tie askew? You need to learn from the likes of Jim Ovia.. always on point! *jussayin*

This is d outcome of already pre-planned game. Uzoma is Pascal Dozie's first son been groomed for a time like this. D man's time is up to give room for Uzoma. He has to step down for him probably they would've promised to sponsor him in politics. After all, they are all from Abia state. Even if d man is venturing into politics for money, d resignation is not all that voluntary but out of compulsion based on agreement.

Anything/anybody will be better than Thief ORJI and his bully of a step son converted 'son'. I've given up hope on my beloved state. Lindoo you need to see current pics of Aba. We are doomed!

Congrats to Mr Dozie!!! God bless Diamond Bank!!

Uzoma, congrats on the much awaited promotions. I know you will do a stellar job. But please you ought to have a professional take your official picture. Multiple shoots. That picture is not complimentary at all.

As for Otti, hope they do to you in politics what you did to people in banking. If you thought you were a fair man, may they be fair to you.

Paschal Dozie is from Egbu, Owerri North LGA in Imo State. He is NOT from Abia State

tameka b said...

always get ur facts right b4 u open ur mouth pls. Alex otti even when he resumed as gmd made it known he will be there for 2 yrs cos of his political ambitions. The Dozies are from Imo state and if ir was preplanned Uzoma would have been Md since without Alex even coming in to be Gmd okay.
