(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Governor Willie Obiano is at this moment addressing traditional rulers inciting them against President Muhammadu Buhari sources in the meeting have disclosed.
The governor according to a source at the meeting told them to go and tell their subjects that the president has withdrawn his personal security, a lie he is presenting to project himself as the underdog in the governorship election due this Saturday.
It could not be confirmed as at press time whether the governor was sober or speaking under the influence of alcohol as he was suspected to have been during his raucous appearance during the governorship debate on Sunday.
A source privy to the meeting going on in the Government House said:
“Obiano is at this moment trying to incite the traditional rulers against the president he is telling them that the president has withdrawn his personal security and telling them to go out and tell their subjects the same thing,” a source privy to the development said.
Governor Obiano is determined to do anything to win and has lately been accused of trying to use the Igbo agenda as his cause, but he has been flayed for failing short in protecting or projecting the interest of the Igbo in the polity.
Only last week, Chief Chukwuemeka Ojukwu Jnr. son of the late Ikemba Nnewi, Chief Emeka Odumegwu Ojukwu accused Obiano of failing to organise any memorial lecture for the late Biafran leader before 2017. He said the recent attempt to organise one was only done for political interest.
Obiano is believed to be jittery over the increasing political strength of the All Progressives Congress, APC candidate, Dr. Tony Nwoye who his camp believe is a serious threat to his aspiration for a second term. His fear it was learnt is underscored by the fact that Nwoye was able to mobilise political force to win election to the House of Representatives to represent Obiano in the House of Representatives.
