Anambra Election: Why Obiano Shouldn't Be Given Another Chance - Peter Obi

            Peter Obi

People's Democratic Party chieftain, Peter Obi who swore to prevent the re-election of his former protege, Governor Willie Obiano as Anambra governor has again launched an attack at him. 

Immediate past governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, yesterday said that his successor, Willie Obiano, has nothing to show for the mandate he was given by the people of the state and therefore does not deserve to be voted as ‎governor again.

Obi, while addressing officers of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Nnewi North Local Government Area, said that most of the projects he started and could not complete before he left, had remained the way he left them.

Obi, who made it clear that he was no more interested in contesting for any elective position again in the state, said he has no personal issue with Obiano but that the paramount thing to Anambra people now was to have a governor who will deepen his achievements in office by moving from Millennium Development Goals, MDGs to SDGs.

“I have no selfish interest in putting anyone into office, my interest is to ensure that the people of the state get the best, and equally fight bad governance anywhere no matter who is concerned,” he said.

Reacting to a question on why Anambra people should trust his choice of candidate after the incumbent he helped into office has allegedly failed, Obi said that Obiano has not for once agreed that he helped him in any way.

He reassured the PDP faithful that better days lie ahead for them if they pitch their tent with Obaze who he said is a seasoned diplomat noting that Nigeria cannot progress when some candidates are buying votes.

Obi and Obiano were close allies in the past as Obi who was then in the All Progressives Grand Alliance helped him to win the gubernatorial election in the year 2013. The duo fell out shortly due to reasons varying from one person to another.

Popular billionaire, Ifeanyi Ubah recently alleged that the animonsity between both parties was caused by a N7 billion secret financial agreement between Obi and Obiano. 

According to his utterances on national TV, Obiano was supposed to pay his godfather the huge funds linked to his emergence as governor which he declined to do leading to a long-term feud which has failed to die.
