Willie striking a pose
From Mr Okafor Mark-Anthony, Onitsha
The Governor of Anambra State Mr Peter Obi boosted few weeks ago that he must instal his business partner Mr Willy Obiano as the next Governor of Anambra State.When few months ago,he gave an interview in a national daily where he claimed to have perfected strategies aimed at winning the next Guber election in the state,his claim was taken with a pinch of salt but recent developments have confirmed that Mr Peter Obi is bent on rigging the forth-coming election in the state by every means necessary
Two days ago,Mr peter Obi called a meeting of his contractors across the LGAs in the state and mandated each to enforce their Staff to support the candidature of Willy Obiano.Some contractors at the meeting who were not favourable dispossed to the proposal raised questions but were forced to submition with threats of sacks or dismissal from their respective responsibilities.Sources who do not want their names in print confirmed this ugly development.One of the contractors based in Onitsha-North LGA was said to have sack some of his staff yesterday who diagreed on suporting the candidate of APGA.The same experience replicated at Aguata and Ogbaru LGAs respectively as some staff lost their jobs for refusal to suport Mr Willy Obiano
Early ths morning,Mr Peter in collusion with the SSG Mr Oseloka Obaze called a meeting of some members of the State House of Assemby and offered to give each of the Legislature the sum of 5 Million Naira should they approve for him 60 Billion Naira to run some projects in the state.The legslatures refused to make such a approval on the gound that previous funds have been approved for the state Government that are yet to be utilised.A member of the opposition party immeiately shot down the request accusing the Governor of seeking funds to bankroll his Governorship candidate and business partner Mr Willy Obiano.Mr Peter Obi immediately denied the allegation but could not explain in clear terms why he wanted the 60 Billion Naira.Mr Oseloka Obaze who was silent most of the time at the meeting quickly persuaded the Govenor to part with 15 Million Naira gift to each of the Legislature should they agree to approve 60 Billion Naira for him.The Legislatures present agreed to consult other members of the House of Assembly and get back to the Governor within 48 hours
This calls for concern to the people of Anambra State.Mr Peter Obi has already been approved the sum of about 110 Billion for this year Projects.It should be noted that Mr Peer Obi embarked on an unprecedented spending spree since the past couple of weeks where he disbursed more than 50 billion naira to various communities and Private Sector aimed at cowing them to support his business partner cum APGA Guber candidate Mr Willy Obiano.The resouces of the state has been depleted by Mr Peter Obi in his mischevious scheme to bribe his way round the state aimed at rigging the Guber elecion at the expense of State Funds
What is Mr Peter Obi doing with 60 Billion Naira in less than one month to the election?.Does the state has any emergency,the answer is NO
The people of Anambra state ae watching this scenario.In a few days,we shall know if Mr Peter Obi finally sucedded in bribing the Legislature with 15 milion Naira each to approve his 60 Bilion Naira and we are also calliung on the EFCC,ICPC and other Financial crime bodies to seriously look into this unholy schemes of Mr Peter Obi to save the poor people of Anambra State from Bankrupty.
