There is always a time,today Arthur Nzeribe with his crime partner IBB are suffering the same fate.They both ran Nigeria aground with their evil partnership in 1993 but today,they both can hardly walk on their own,nonetheless,run. Such is life.It is painted in a mirror.Senator Arthur Francis Nzeribe was born in Oguta,Imo State on 2 November 1938 to a prominent Oguta family.He is the Ogbuagu,Osniji,Damanze Oyimba of Oguta.His second wife is the sister of Hajia Asabe Yar’Adua,wife of the late General Shehu Musa Yar'Adua,who was brother of late former President Umaru Yar'Adua.He attended Holy Ghost College, Owerri,and then got a scholarship from the Nigerian Ports Authority in 1958 to study marine engineering in England.
By 1960 he was selling life insurance to black immigrants in Britain.He met Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana that year and started to work for Nkrumah in public relations.He bought his first Rolls Royce a year later.After the fall of Nkrumah in 1966 he lost influence in Ghana.In 1969 Nzeribe started up the Fanz Organization based in London,dealing in heavy construction,arms,oil brokerage, publishing and property investment,with much business in the Middle East and Gulf states.By 1979 Fanz had an annual trading turnover of £70 million. In Nigeria, Nzeribe built up Sentinel Assurance and other companies.In 1983 he spent N12m to win a Senatorial seat in Orlu imo state.In 1993,he was a prominent supporter of the Association for a Better Nigeria,which backed General Ibrahim Babangida.Using the Ibrahim Babangida-supported ABN platform he campaigned for,and dubiously succeeded in the annulment of the fairest and freest presidential election in the history of Nigeria.
He continued further his mission to legitimize the dictatorship of maximum ruler,general Sanni Abachi,which was resolutely resisted by the Nigerian people and the will of God.He was elected Senator for the Imo Orlu constituency 1999 and was reelected in 2003.In November 2002,Senate President Anyim Pius Anyim indefinitely suspended Senator Nzeribe due to an allegation of a N22 million fraud.Nzeribe was said to be planning an impeachment motion against Anyim.In April 2006 the Orlu People’s Consultative Assembly,sponsored by the governor of Imo state Achike Udenwa, staged what it called “One million March” to drum support for Nzeribe’s recall from the Senate.In the December 2006 PDP primaries for the 2007 Senatorial candidates,he was defeated by Osita Izunaso.
