. . . Says Gov Acting against People’s Will
By Ikeugonna Eleke
The African Democratic Congress, ADC, has condemned the Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, for supporting the reelection of President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The national chairman of the party, Mr Ralphs Okey Nwosu, spoke to journalists in Awka while presenting the flag of the party to the senatorial candidate for Anambra Central Zone, Mr Tony Ezekwelu.
Nwosu said Obiano was supporting President Buhari against the wishes of the people of Anambra State, noting that the people were averse to the style of leadership offered by the president.
He queried, ‘What are they supporting? Another four years of destruction and divisive government? We are ashamed of this kind of support.
‘How can the people we elected to represent us be supporting a totalitarian government? I urge everyone to go out and vote out the Buhari government, 100 percent.
‘They are supporting the same man who hates Igbos, and who has refused to appoint an Igbo man into the security council of this country.
He has rejected Igbos in totality.’
Nwosu said the forthcoming elections would be a referendum, and rather than preach boycott of the elections, as the secessionist group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) were doing, he rather urged all Igbos to go out en-masse and show their displeasure by voting against the Buhari government.
Earlier, the senatorial candidate of the party, Ezekwelu, urged the people of the zone to shun old politicians who had perpetually failed them.
Ezekwelu who was also a founding member of APGA, said he left the party for ADC, when its leaders started nursing the idea of adopting Buhari whom he described as not popular among the people of Anambra State.
