PETER-OBIAnambra State Governor, Mr. Peter Obi has debunked reports that he has anointed a particular candidate to succeed him in the forthcoming November 16 gubernatorial election in the state.

Speaking on behalf of Gov. Obi, Commissioner for Information and Culture, Barr. Joe-Martins Uzodike, described the reports as mischievous.

He said, what the governor has continued to do in his usual spirit of fairness and equity is to insist that his successor should come from Anambra North; a region that has not produced a governor since the inception of the state and urge them to come out with their best materials for the job.

“Today, a number of them have come out, with competitive advantages to rival the best of other zones. We have the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Oseloka Obaze, an international Civil Servant; we have Dr. Chike  Obidigbo, a renowned industrialist; we have Mr. Tony Nnaecheta, who was an ex MD of a Bank; we have Chief Willie Obiano, who was an Executive Director in a Bank, among others. With this array of people from the Zone, nobody can say the zone lacks quality people,” the Commissioner said.

Reacting to Senator Chris Ngige’s justification for the deportation of 72 Anambra indigenes from Lagos and his allegation that Gov. Obi is playing God, the Commissioner said he would not trade words with a Senator who he said according to a Senate report, did not make any statement in the Senate or passed a bill, only to find his voice in support of obvious injustice against his people.

  1. I love this called Peter obi and Uzodike this only suitable answer to foolish man call ngige who can’t pass a single bill or move a motion in senate

  2. Ngige might not pass a bill because he’s in de minority,but then, senator ngige would be remembered for opposing the motion that would have increased the allowance of our past presidents, which later died prematurely at de floor of de [email protected] or lake whatever your name is you should be able to read between de lines rather than being sarcastic. Gov obi is jittery because of de cankerworms (nemesis)that would come after he must have left office.
