Cry the beloved ASA-USA; fire on third floor of the castle you built:
This is follow-up to the original Town Crier outcry titled; “When the fish is rot at the head, the fish is no good- Japanese cliché professes. Mum has been the word since the original outcry from the Town Crier.
No response, no communication from the National to reassure the chapters and the affiliates of the state of affairs of the once mighty ASA-USA. What to make of the eerie mum is anyones guess. Members who are used to periodic messages from the Public Relations Officer wonder why no Christmas nor New Year messages were communicated to the members, leaving members to wonder where the once ASA-USA public relations nuisance that pesters the airwaves with dilutions in the names of Anadis’ virtuous? I mean The “Chief” Dr. Mrs. Iru-Ugegbe Aguoji. You must know that by not disputing these barrages of accusation as innuendos with counter opinions you own them as truthful.
The Town Crier has sat behind, and over the past two years as numerous write-ups and accusations of violation of public trust is leveled against this current ASA- USA administration. With ears on the ground, the Town Crier obtained unfettered access into the inner running of this current ASA- USA administration. Here are some of the findings that should worry every ASA-USA current and future members. At issues:
Brewing now are Allison VS Board Chairman of ASA USA Board, Alison’s own legal advisor running scared of being contaminated and going public over what he is alleging as;
1. Probable lack of accountability re inflation of expenditure from 14, 000. 00 to 24,000.00 in the past year’s expenditure
2. Unreported donations and unconstitutional practice in keeping with the 5013C type (not for profit) registration
3. Prospects of excessive unapproved travel within the United States and to Nigeria on ASA –USA wallet
4. In-fighting within executive, resulting in some decamping and threatening to decamp by members of the executive if honesty and the once almighty ASA-USA old glory are not restored
5. Public brawl with key women group that ultimately resulted in the creation of the now thriving ASA Women in USA group (old news)
6. Fight with the Houston group that led to creation of two parallel Anambra USA (old news)
7. Brewing battle with the ASA-USA board member over who has more power in the running of the ASA-USA under the 5013C (non-profit) type registration
The “Town Crier” has also been informed that rather than respond to the accusations, Anadi left for Nigeria, leaving his executive “running for cover” and or using seregates going back to Jimmy or Anakwenze’s regimes two years removed to draw references as a way of justifying what ails ASA-USA under Anadi
Again, the Town Crier reports, “fire on the third floor” of the once ASA-USA Palace. The current executive under the umbrella of Chief Alison Anadi needs to put out the fire before the entire castle crumbles. As the Town Crier earlier indicated, Chief A Anadi was elected two years ago on the premises that he has the steady hand to propel the once mighty ASA-USA upward; enough to at least the level that it was used to under the leadership of Prince Jimmy Asiegbu and the incomparable Dr. Nwachukwu Anakwenze. Unfortunately, what ASA-USA has from Chief Alison Anadi is isolationism, ostracisms and depletion of the goodwill left behind for him to build on.
The prospects for the downfall of the once almighty ASA-USA ferments:
If it is true that ASA-USA’s statement of objectives are “to promote and foster love, peace, unity, togetherness, cooperation, understanding, justice and fair play between and among all Anambra people living in the United States and in Nigeria or elsewhere in the world, and to do the same in regard to the promotion, pursuit, practice of transparency, accountability, good public policy and governance in public affairs”, what in the heavens are going on?
Why is almost every write-up on this current AS-USA executive either negative, about law suits or about scam? Noteworthy are the very fact that Chief Alison Anadi's first term was marred with law suits from D.C to Houston.
Heartbroken to confirm that there is indeed “mother of all law suits” fermenting within the once almighty ASA-USA. In Jimmy Asiegbu’s write-up last week he confirmed that the Board and Anadi’s executive are now poised for the “mother of all law suits” in the New Year destined to destroy the once ASA-USA . For the record, only the third parties win in such lawsuits. Lawyers laugh all the way to the bank with such lawsuits. The losers as we all know are ASA –USA members who pay their membership dues to support ASA –USA organization. Cry my beloved ASA-USA. Eze onye agwanam, aburo ezigbo afa, in other words, when we seats at the height of arrogance, everyone loses.
Let's hope the New Year brings Good Tiding to us all. A Happy and Prosperous New Year!
God help the once almighty ASA -USA.
