Obi-Obiano Feud: Groups Declares War on Obi, Backs Obiano for 2nd Term

Worried by the in­tense criticism from opposition parties in the State, a pres­sure group operating un­der the auspices of House of Assembly Aspirants Association of Nigeria, HAAN, Anambra chapter has vowed to surmount any obstacle that may truncate Governor Willie Obiano’s second term bid in Anambra State.

The group in a two-page strong worded com­muniqué signed by its National Chairman, Hon. Nduka Alor and his sec­retary, Benedrine Agbata also warned the former governor, Mr Peter Obi and his aides to stop dis­tracting his successor, Obiano to enable him continue to deliver on the mandate given to him by the people.

While passing vote of con­fidence on Governor Obia­no, the group stated that the governor has achieved a lot in less than 20 months in of­fice, a legacy, they said will remain unbeaten in the an­nals of Anambra state.

The communiqué reads in part: “We are disturbed that some persons who steered the sheep of this state for eight years without any op­position or rancour from any quarter are now witch hunt­ing their successor.

“We also recall with re­gret, that from 1999 to 2003, the then Anambra governor, Dr. Chinweroke Mbadinuju saw hell in the hands of overzealous politicians, Mbadinuju’s successor, Dr. Chris Ngige also suffered the same fate but after that era, destructive opposition became a thing of the past in the State and that was why the former governor Peter Obi sailed through for eight years, uninterrupted and undisturbed.

“Our hearts bleed that today; he is involved in cre­ating confusion and chaos in the state. We hereby state categorically that we will re­sist any attempt to reintro­duce the era of brigandage in Anambra state and urge him to allow his successor concentrate in the task of building a new Anambra.

“Governor Obiano has achieved a lot in less than two years to deserve second term. He has proved to us that he is people-oriented and a listening governor by being consistent in paying workers salaries and im­proving agriculture as one of his four wheels of devel­opment.

“The Agricultural invest­ments will ensure enough food and employment for Ndi Anambra and the trade and commerce sector has got a boost and is in full gear to earn revenue and attract investors for the State. That is why we are not feeling the drop in revenue of Nigeria so much here. Some States are owing arrears of sala­ries but here in Anambra, our Governor is increasing salaries.

“As if that is not enough, he is making Awka a befitting state capital which some people neglect­ed and abandoned for eight years, and in terms of secu­rity, he has sent criminals and kidnappers packing and as well, flagged off con­struction of many roads in the state within this short period of time. Willie is re­ally working and we must rally support for him”
