I’ll Block Obiano’s Planned Defection to APC – Rep Member

Victor OgeneAmid unconfirmed reports that Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State is contemplating defecting from the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), to the All Progressives Congress (APC), the member representing Ogbaru Federal Constituency on the platform of APC, Victor Ogene, has vowed to stop the governor from joining the APC.

In a statement in Awka, the state capital at the weekend, the federal lawmaker argued that Gov. Obiano’s entry into the APC would only stunt the expected resurgence of the party in the state and the entire South East geo-political zone.

Ogene, who is the deputy chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, wondered what value Mr. Obiano would bring to the APC, after abysmally leading APGA down the path of extinction through a combination of autocracy, vindictiveness, haughtiness and a crass disposition of self- adulation.

Ogene asked: “Is the man we are talking about not the one who, in the words of famed novelist, the late Chinua Achebe, ‘had his palm kernel cracked for him by benevolent spirits, yet he refused to be humble?’ Where is former Governor Peter Obi? Where are the five House of Representatives members that Obiano inherited when he became governor? How many seats did he lead APGA to win in the just concluded elections? The questions are legion, yet very few optimistic answers”.

Ogene said that under the circumstance, he would advise Governor Obiano to remain in APGA and clean up the mess he instigated, before embarking on another political voyage.
