Xclusive Magazine Celebrates Fred Ajudua at 57
Xclusive Magazine Celebrates Chief (Barrister) Fred Ajudua on his 57th birthday today. We also celebrate with his people of Ibusa in Oshimili North Local Government of Delta State.
Born on 5 June 1960, Fred Ajudua is an institution in Ibusa and arguably the most influential Ibusa man that has ever lived. Prof Buchi Emecheta. Professor Pat Utomi. Admiral Dele Ezeoba. Professor Fidelis Oditah. Senator Peter Nwaoboshi. Ogbogu Okonji. These are just a few of the many prominent Ibusa men and women, Fred Ajudua outshines them all. This is because Fred Ajudua is a giver, a philanthropist extraordinaire. It is impossible to find a family in Ibusa that he did not touch their lives positively.
Chances are that the next Ibusa person under thirty-five years you would ever meet was a beneficiary of Fred Ajudua’s scholarship scheme in the early ninety nineties. Chances are also that the next person that you find, who is older than thirty-five, Fred taught him politics, or how to make money, or he bought him a car at his wedding, or built him a house, or who had raised him up when he was financially down.
The young, the not-so-young, the old, the widow, the orphan, the poor, the lost, the confused…Fred has helped them all; Fred gave many direction. So the man the world simply knows as Fred Ajudua, who calls himself the “Architect of Modern Ibusa,” is Onwa to his people because he is the moon that had shone his celestial light on them all.
But Fred Ajudua is not a God, and he is not a man without sin. A simple Google search would yield very disturbing results. In fact, almost first seven pages of google search results are all negative; narratives of advance-fee fraud. Offences he allegedly committed beginning of the millennium still haunt him in 2017. Google is certainly unfair to Fred Ajudua. If you really want to know the man Fred Ajudua, look beyond Google and the Nigerian press and his fraud cases.
We in XCLUSIVE MAGAZINE salute the man Fred Ajudua and join his family, townspeople and numerous admirers in celebrating his extra-ordinary life. Still we abhor his politics! Politics is a dirty game and those who play are bound to soil their hands. Ajudua is not a politician. His wife is. Princess Pat Ajudua is the two-time member of the Delta State House of Assembly and currently its Chief Whip. Her meteoric rise in Delta politics is attributed, to a reasonable extent, to the connection and influence of her husband, Fred.
Politics has made mortal of this extra-ordinary man. Fred Ajudua is not a politician. His wife, fondly called Adankele, is a politician and has a reputation within the Ibusa community for playing Point and Kill politics because of her penchant for using ‘thuggery,” violence and murder to achieve political goals.
In 2007, one Livy Ajufo also from Ibusa was killed. On the House of Assembly Election Day in 2011, Marvis Chukwuka and Onyeka Achuzia were murdered. And in 2015, also the day of the Delta State House of Assembly Election Day, Emeka Onianwa was mercilessly beaten at Fred Ajudua’s Ibusa mansion, and later died at the university teaching hospital, Benin-City, Edo state, according to Chief Tony Azuya’s Petition to the Inspector General of Police, signed by his solicitor, Barrister Femi Okafor.
Although XCLUSIVE MAGAZINE is unable to establish direct involvement of Fred Ajudua or his wife’s in these politically-motivated murders, the insinuation is rife within Oshimili North political circles that the murders had occurred during the Delta State Oshimili North’s House of Assembly elections in which his wife, Pat Ajudua was a candidate.
These murder cases have gone cold and, perhaps, may never be solved. But fingers are still pointing at the Ajuduas. Fred is not a politician. But he is the ladder with which his wife has climbed to her dizzy political heights in Delta State.
A man who has done so much for his people, a man who in the past years gave almost his all for the betterment of his community and humanity, may in the end be remembered by his people for these cold cases.
