Obiano is real deal in Anambra, says Sen. Okonkwo


Willie Obiano

Southeast statesman and “Invest Home” campaigner, Senator Annie Okonkwo has reiterated that incumbent Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, will win the November 18 governorship election in the state.

Okonkwo who inspired the Agunechemba Support Group (ASG) for Obiano, stated this while addressing field mobilisers of the group at their meeting in Awka yesterday.

He said, “With less than a month to the inevitable re-election of the governor, it has become imperative to note that this is a ‘fait accompli’ that must be translated to mission accomplished, because all other contenders have brought nothing new to the table.


“They have been fairly weighed and properly scaled and we have seen their flag offs and take off rhetoric. But the truth remains that Obiano is not just the best deal, he is actually the only deal in this critical matter for sustainable governance and development of the state. The rest are playmakers possibly good for the compliments.

“I speak to you from the history of our known grassroots bond, and the benefit of an established highest level participant in equitable politics, that wisdom and fair judgment demand that we work together and return the incumbent with even bigger margins.”

Reacting to “those who claim to have ‘given’ Obiano to Anambra people” who now desire a change, the Senator said, “It will be poisonous to allow the person or people who ‘served’ us Obiano, to ruin our appetite with new aromas from the same kitchen, when we are just half done, because you can never know the spin the chef is making. It is a fatal disservice to our people for anyone to sabotage a flight at cruise level just because you disembarked willfully.

“The politics of good governance in Anambra is not, and cannot be any man’s wish pot to mix and brew, serve and remove, even when it’s so unnecessary, because we the citizens are the real stakeholders in the outcomes. Therefore, we should not be part of anyone’s sterile misadventure and comedy of after thoughts, which efforts sadly should have been engaged more productively.”It will be recalled that the ASG recently hosted the governor to a rally at Awka with a commitment to his electoral victory.
