. . . Accuses Obiano of Working Against Ndi Igbo
By Pascal Chibueze
The Anambra State Chapter of Atiku/Obi Presidential Campaign Organization, has accused Governor Willie Obiano of working against the interest of Ndi Igbo, saying that Obiano's stance on the decision of the Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo is only personal to the governor and should not be perceived as the general opinion of Ndi Anambra.
Addressing newsmen in Awka, the Director General of the Presidential Campaign Committee, Anambra State Atiku/Obi Campaign Organization, Dr. Harry Oranezi, said it was unthinkable and suicidal for any Igbo to distance himself from what he described as the only body that protected the interest of Ndi Igbo in Nigeria.
'Everyone is entitled to his freedom of expression and association, Governor Willie Obiano with his palace jesters' decision to go against Ohanaeze confirms their original intention to work against the interest of Ndi Igbo.
Dr. Oranezi lauded the courage of the leadership of Ohanaeze not to sit on the fence in a matter, he said, concerned the interest of every Igbo man in the world. He said the decision of Ohanaeze reflected the opinion of the well-meaning Igbos and Nigerians at large.
'Governor Willie Obiano is not being truthful to himself and has forgotten that his personal interest should not overshadow the collective interest of the people. He should see through the selfishness of siding injustice and tyranny. He has made his choice, but the entire Ndi Igbo will move on without him.
'Ndi Anambra will forever be a part of every decision that would better the condition of Ndi Igbo, and every Anambra man and woman are in solidarity with Chief Nnia Nwodo and Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo. We are a part of the decision made in Imeobi Ohanaeze.
