Stop The Lies Am Not Rigging 2019 Presidential Election For Anybody In Anambra, Willie Obiano Declares

Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has refuted the viral allegation that he is plotting to rig Saturday’s  presidential election in favour of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress(APC), President Muhammadu Buhari

He said this yesterday in a statement by the state Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Don Adinuba. Obiano was reacting to allegations by the Atiku/Obi Campaign Organization that the governor sent out a memo to the administration department of the Anambra State Post Primary Schools Service Commission, PPSSC, to supply information about teachers and civil servants in the state ahead of Saturday’s election. However, the governor urged the people to disregard the rumour.

The statement added that the governor had consistently been directing Anambra electorate to vote for candidates of All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, in all elections.The statement read in part: “Some political party members wrote a fake news report alleging that Governor Willie Obiano has directed Anambra voters to kill any person who fails to vote for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari next Saturday.


“When the report was written initially, their bloggers from Anambra State refused to distribute it because, apart from being unconscionable, it falsely paints their state in lurid colours. The writers now approached school dropouts who are not indigenes of the state to distribute it.It is ironic that the forged report was published on the social media on the day the Catholic Diocese of Nnewi was honouring Governor Obiano for principle-centred leadership which took into consideration his commitment to peace, order, healthy pluralism, sacredness of life and dignity of the human person.No matter the level of provocative propaganda against the governor during the 2019 general election by political desperados and all those who want to acquire power by all means possible, both the people and government of Anambra State have resolved that their beloved state will remain the most peaceful in the country and the most socially harmonious.”
