The Alphonsus Political Outing From State To National Prominence

When he launched his intent of assuming the flagship of our ruling party, many, because of his age, dismissed the optimism of his innocent aspiration as a mere wishful thinking. Lack of experience, maturity and competence were some of the vague allusions enumerated to fend-off the Okadigbo project. The vicious resistance and the heightened machinations, casting shadows of escalating dreads could not dissuade his focus.
