The Anambra State Government has reacted to the recent outburst by the immediate past governor of the state, Peter Obi, who was credited to have faulted the current administration of his successor, Governor Willie Obiano.

Recall that Peter Obi at a stakeholders meeting with the people’s democratic party held in Akwa, the Anambra state Capital, had expressed his disappointment at the Willie Obiano administrtion.

He was quoted to have said, “I will fight with the last drop of my blood to stop the re-election of Governor Willie Obiano in the November poll.”

Reacting to the reports, the Anambra State government through Prince Oliver Okpala, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Strategic Communication to Governor Willie Obiano, said:

“It is shameful for Obi to be lying so openly and playing on the intelligence of the people of Anambra State.

“Governor Obiano has not only exceedingly surpassed what he met on the ground by completing most of the existing projects, he has gone ahead to embark on very strategic projects. “Why did Obi not work for the governorship candidate of the PDP, Obaze Oseloka, when he was handing over despite the fact that Oseloka was his SSG? What has changed between then and now?

“Governor Obi claimed he has no selfish interest in putting anyone into office but added that he resolved to fight bad governance. This is laughable because the real crux of the matter is not bad governance but the proceeds of godfatherism, which Governor Obiano has refused to pay.

“He cannot subscribe to servicing godfatherism as it hampers development. Chief Obiano is not the first person to confront godfathrism as Senator Ngige had gone through that path before. He had said he was being requested to part with as much as half of the allocation of the state to his Godfather.”

“It is reprehensible that the former Governor is speaking like this because one is forced to recall how vehement he was when he was pushing for Chief Obiano to emerge as Governor.

In 2003 he fought everyone, insulted all those who opposed him and abandoned all other aspirants at home and went abroad to get Chief Obiano who was an outstanding technocrat based in the US.

“He thereafter traversed the length and breadth of the state telling people of the sterling qualities of Chief Obiano. After few years he is now telling us the opposite. Was he insane or under the influence of alcohol when he was telling the whole world then that Obiano was the best man for the job?

“If one may ask what has changed between then and now when he described Obiano as the best candidate amongst all the aspirants. He said he was a man of character going by his antecedents.
