ANAMBRA ELECTION PROTESTERS ARE NOT IGBOS – Obi’s Aide
The Senior Special Assistant to Governor Peter Obi on media and publicity has called on the good people of Anambra State to remain calm over what he called the stage-managed protest against the November 16th election.
Obienyem said that investigations revealed that those who protested, especially those women that pretended to be crying were imported into Anambra State from Osun State in five chartered luxurious buses. Ngige and his group wanted protest at all costs, but when our people, who already know him for what he is, refused they had to go to Osun State.
Obienyem said that even yesterday they imported some boys from Imo State to protest as students. “The Vice Chancellor of Nnandi Azikiwe, who has taken the university to great heights, Prof. Egboka was alarmed when contacted on phone, he had to rush down to that school for investigations. Having discovered that those involved were not his students, he said, ‘please beware of those evil men who lost. I’ve checked with all my relevant officials; the story of UNIZIK Students is fallacious! We’ve our respects, belief and integrity, more so, students are not in the school right now.’ ”
Obienyem said on further investigations and interrogation of the boys they confessed that APC people paid them N1,500 each and chartered the buses that conveyed them from Imo State to Anambra.
Insisting that the November 16th election was one of the best in Nigeria, Obienyem wondered while Igbos and all men of good will commend the election while only Ngige and his APC people are against it.
