I Knew Buhari Will Win That’s Why I Supported Him Ndigbo Made A Mistake By Not Voting For Him, Obiano Declares

Willie Obiano, Governor Of Anambra State has disclosed that he supported President Muhammadu Buhari because he knew before hand that the president will win his reelection bid.

Governor Obiano, who disclosed this in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr James Eze, said he knew that it was impossible to beat President Muhammadu Buhari in the last presidential and National Assembly elections. Mr Eze, said the governor, made it clear to his close friends and allies that the opposition did not stand a chance against the president.He argued that in a federation that has developed a thick skin for fairness, equity and justice, it is wiser to be subtle than confrontational. He warned that Ndigbo must not stumble twice over the same stone. But nobody understood him then, for though most of them have been in politics long before him, but foresight is a gift that is not available to everyone.

“And now that the chickens have come home to roost, it has become clear to Governor Obiano that foresight comes at a price. Foresight is a lonely path to tread. It breeds unexpected resentment and hate. Having foresight could turn you into a sudden object of anger and unwise attacks. But on the long run, it never leaves you without the enduring sheen of grace and glory. And that happens only when the people finally wake up to smell the coffee. Sadly, in the case of many farsighted leaders, this happens after they are out of office or after they are gone!

It will be recalled that Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State, has denied claims by candidates of some political parties in the state that he had endorsed them for the forthcoming general elections, saying that he had endorsed only candidates of All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA.

The Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr. C. Don Adinuba, who reacted on behalf of the governor, said it had come to the knowledge of the state government that a number of political parties and their candidates participating in the 2019 general elections, were boldly claiming that Governor Obiano had endorsed them, adding that there was no iota of truth in such claims. He said that in order to make the claim look authentic, many candidates had published in their campaign posters, fliers and banner, their pictures with Governor Obiano, even when many of the photographs were taken with the governor at public functions without the governor knowing about them.
