A stalwart of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Arthur Eze on Thursday accused, Anambra State governor, Peter Obi, of rigging the just held gubernatorial election.
He also accused Obi of poor infrastructural development of the state, said the people will resist all his plans to rule the state.
Fielding questions from journalists at the State House Abuja, the multi-billionaire business mogul also said the current battle to save Anambra State is to check the problems of under development and criminal activities in the state
Eze, who is the main supporter of Tony Nwoy, the PDP’s candidate for the Anambra gubernatorial election, further blamed the outgoing Anambra governor for the current crises facing the conduct of the election
“It’s for the poor that we are fighting, it is not for me, but for the needy and the orphan. Not for me, I am an old man, I am going. It’s because of the poor that I am crying.
?There is too much poverty in the country, and I have dedicated myself to helping the poor for the past 10 or more years. That is why I brought out Tony Nwoye from the North, the poorest zone in the state to become the Governor,” he said.
In his opinion: “Obi committed a crime and rigged the election against the poor people and brought his man, Obiano. For eight years, there were no longer local government elections in Anambra, now he brought Obiano, his treasurer to take over from him. Now, Obiano will spend eight years and bring somebody, then we are in trouble.
“Jega is very emotional, he is a very straightforward human being. He said this election was an act of sabotage. He was frank and God will advise him on what to do.”
He therefore urged the people of Anambra to pray for the salvation of the state to avoid the spate of social crises which the state witnessed in the last eight years.
“Go and pray. What is going to happen in Anambra will happen in so many places. Pray for yourselves, not for us, we are gone, we are aged.”
Responding to questions on what the current electoral challenge indicates for 2015, Eze said “I don’t want criminals to take over in 2015, that is why I am crying”.
