Transfer of B/Haram prisoners to Anambra: Obiano lied — Peter Obi

Peter Obi and Jonathan
Former Governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi , has refuted claims by the state governor Willie Obiano that the transfer of Boko Haram prisoners was concluded in 2012 during the reign of former Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan and Obi as governor of the state.
He expressed shock about Obiano’s claims, describing it as a blatant lie.
Reacting to the claim that Jonathan and Obi were behind the relocation of Boko Haram terrorists to Anambra State, the media aide to Peter Obi, Mr. Valentine Obienyem, said he was shocked that Governor Willie Obiano would personally sign such a release laying claims to what appeared nauseating and childish.
Obienyem said that such a claim would only end up proving to the people that there were more to the relocation than they already knew.
Describing the claim as a blatant lie, Obienyem wondered how an action or a plan concluded by a man who left office almost 16 months ago was being implemented now.

“After a busy few weeks as governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai is dismayed by the blatant falsehood being practised as journalism by The Union newspapers,” the governor’s spokesperson, Samuel Aruwan, said in a statement. “He has consequently directed his legal team to vigorously enforce his rights to protect his reputation from the vandalism of irresponsible hacks.”

“When some of their cohorts made contact with the governor’s media team insisting that they respond to rumour, they were told that it is better if they chose the more legitimate route of agitating for a public asset declaration.

The shrill claim by Mr Valentine Obienyem in several weekend newspapers [June 13 – 14, 2015] that the Nkpor – Amawbia old road recently commissioned by Governor Willie Obiano was started and completed by Mr Peter Obi is incorrect and an unnecessary venture in controversy.  Obi’s credentials as a former governor of Anambra State are not under any danger of assault. His report card is out in the public domain and as a public figure, no one individual or institution has copyright on his record of service.  On the basis of verifiable accounts of his stewardship, leadership, social and philosophical leanings, varying perceptions of his reputation have [naturally] emerged.
