APC Plottting to take Anambra by Force-Obiano

Anambra State Governor, Mr Willie Obiano is accusing the All Progressives Congress (APC) of desperation, noting that the party wants to take Anambra by Force ahead of the November 18, 2017 polls.

Governor Obiano stated that the APC wants to unleash violence in his state and then declare a state of emergency. He said PAC was behind the insecurity  in the state

The governor who was reacting to reports credited to the APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, where he called on the former to “write his hand over notes and start preparing to vacate office,” said such statement lacked democratic spirit.

He said  “No doubt this statement, which we consider as coming from not just Chief Oyegun but from the ruling APC is a clear threat to Nigeria’s democracy and security in Anambra State. “We have it on good authority that they have been working at various options including an attempt to foment insecurity in the state to pave way for a state of emergency as a prelude to their take-over. What this requires is that Anambra people and Nigerians in general, especially lovers of democracy and good governance should be alert. l

“It has again re-affirmed the undemocratic nature of many APC apostles and this is unfortunate for our nation, especially at this critical point in our history when democratic tenets should be nurtured,” he said.

In a statement in Abuja by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Strategic Communications, Prince Oliver Okpala, the governor accused the APC national chairman of lacking integrity and moral ground to speak on good governance, saying he does not have such record. “Oyegun’s declaration that his rudderless party will take over Anambra is also an unfortunate exposure of that undemocratic spirit and cancer that has befallen the APC. If what we practice is true democracy, where democracy is the government of the people, for the people and by the people, Oyegun could not have made such an unguarded utterance”.
