APGA chieftain knocks Obi for criticising Willie Obiano
A chieftain of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Anambra State, Prince Ikechukwu Tabansi, has warned former governor, Peter Obi, to stop castigating the incumbent, Willie Obiano.
Tabansi told journalists in Awka yesterday that Obiano started where Obi stopped and had since moved the state forward.
He urged the former governor to allow Obiano to complete his second tenure in office, rather than condemn visible achievements of the administration.
“My humble advice to Obi is to take things easy, knowing that it is not all you hope to get from somebody that you will get. That does not mean you should start throwing stones,” he said.
He expressed confidence that Obiano would be re-elected and promised that part of the major votes would come from Nri kingdom, of which he (Tabansi) is former regent.
“This was exactly what we did for Peter Obi because he can’t be in Agulu, his home town, and also be in my town at the same time. It is not possible because politics is not a one-man show.
“Obiano is equally lucky because Iyom Uche Ekwunife, our wife, is not contesting any position. Otherwise we should have queued behind her. But this time, we want to give Obiano our votes.”
He explained that Obiano deserves strength from the real people that made Peter Obi governor, noting that Obi did not fall down from heaven.
“People made him what he was. There are people he climb on to get into the position and those people are with Obiano.”
He noted that road construction should not be the only parameter for measuring Obiano’s achievements in office, insisting that attracting investors was equally a path to development because it would create jobs and boost revenue.
