The President-General of apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief John Nnia Nwodo, has accused the Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano of calling him an idiot over the group’s decision to endorse presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
He said that Obiano, who had vowed to deliver his state to President Muhammadu Buhari, called him an idiot in a telephone conversation.
Nwodo noted that he decided to go public over the incident to show Nigerians who the idiot is between himself and Obiano.
The Ohanaeze leader said, “Your Excellency Gov Obiano, I was surprised to receive a call from you a few minutes ago in which you said the following words ‘Nnia, I didn’t know that you were so idiotic’.
“I am shocked that you can be so insolent.
“I am sure that I was neither so idiotic when I addressed your state assembly asking Ndi Anambra to disregard IPOB’s boycott of your election nor was I idiotic when I pleaded with the Commander-in-Chief to restore your security detail.
“History will judge who amongst us is idiotic. If standing with the popular wish of Ndigbo makes me idiotic, I am happy to be called an idiot.
“I will make this communication public so that Igbo will know who is idiotic amongst both of us.”
