Will Peter Obi let Peace Reign now his Aide Admits no N75bn Cash for Obiano?

The raging controversy over the actual sum of money left in liquid currency when former governor Peter Obi of Anambra State handed over power in March last year has driven home the saying by British statesman, Winston Churchill that – “a lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”  This is more so because since Obi’s successor decided to break his 19-month old silence on the controversy, further revelations have shown Nigerians the factual account of Obi’s Handover Notes. A fierce duel between the representatives of the warring parties on Channels Television on Tuesday, November 18, 2015 offers us a veritable insight into the dispute.

Obiano has not taken any loan, he is still servicing the Loans taken by Peter Obi

Governor Obiano is still servicing the N1bn Commercial Agricultural Loan his predecessor, Peter Obi borrowed from the Federal Government for on lending to farmers in the State through the Ministry of Agriculture and All Farmers Association of Nigeria (ALFAN), Anambra Chapter. 

Unfortunately, the loan was listed in his handover not as part of the phantom N75bn cash. It is not even an investment yet, Peter Obi’s Aide, Val Obienyem, has been shouting about that Anambra is taking a loan.

N75bn: Show evidence, APGA dares Obi

The All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, has thrown its weight behind Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State in the ongoing face-off between him and his estranged predecessor by challenging the former Governor, Mr Peter Obi, to produce evidence that he handed over N75bn to his successor as claimed in his handover note to Obiano some 18 months ago.

Mrs. Obiano Tasks Women on Sustained Family Values

The Wife of the Governor of Anambra State, Her Excellency, Chief (Mrs.) Ebelechukwu Obiano has tasked women to sustain family values through their actions and prayers and also ensure there is no communication gap between them and their husbands in other to fulfill their role as mothers in society.
Mrs. Obiano made the plea over the weekend while addressing the 2015 Women Convention at the Holy Ghost Adoration Ministry Uke, Idemili North, Local Government Area.
The wife of the governor told the participants that sustaining family values also rests on the ability to hold the household together with love and prayers, instilling  fear of God in the children and helping people in need in other to attract blessings from God. According to Mrs. Obiano; “Today I may be the wife of the governor but it is important to let you know that we started small. Sometimes the family income may put undue pressure on the husband and wife and that is when a woman must persevere in prayers.” Sharing personal experiences, Mrs. Obiano stated:


  It was a tale that aroused curiosity each time it was told. Officially, Anambra State is not yet an oil producing state and thus, does not benefit from the 13% mineral derivation fund.  Nor does Anambra belong to the premier league of federation account recipients such as Kano, Katsina, and Lagos – with lopsided number of local government areas and high population respectively.  Then given the low tone of governance and public service in the country, interest was stirred with the announcement that outgoing Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi was bequeathing an asset of N75b in cash and investments to his successor, Willie Obiano.
