Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano has spoken out on allegations that he is supporting President Muhammadu Buhari to return for a second term.

The Governor who spoke through the Commissioner for Information & Public Enlightenment, Mr C.Con Adinuba on speculations about endorsing any presidential candidate for the 2019 election, said such information was untrue.

Adinuba said stories of Obiano endorsing one presidential candidate or the other were merely configuration meant to use his name to sway support for their principal.

The commissioner in a press release said, “As the 2019 general election approaches, it is interesting how various politicians and political parties have been swooping on Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State in the belief that his role will be critical in deciding who wins the presidential vote.

“For instance, operatives of two of the leading political parties in Nigeria, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have taken to the social media to create the impression that the governor has endorsed their candidates in the forthcoming election.

“Some have even gone as far as reproducing a video of an event which took place in 2014 in a bid to give the impression that the event has just occurred, but this is not true.”

He stated that Obiano was neither working for Buhari nor Atiku as he was his own man, who is steadfast about his party, which he said also had its presidential candidate.

He said, “The enormous attention paid to Gov Obiano by various national political parties as well as their agents is flattering. Indeed, we are not aware of any state governor who has in recent times received this level of attention in Nigeria.

“Gov Obiano is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA). He is also the APGA National Leader. These positions place heavy responsibilities on his shoulders. Therefore, any talk about his endorsing the presidential candidate of another party, let alone joining another party, is sheer wishful thinking.

“APGA has a presidential candidate in the 2019 general election in the person of General John Gbor (retd). This is in sharp contrast to the situation during the two previous presidential elections when APGA had no candidate, and was consequently constrained to form an electoral alliance with the ruling party.

“To state the obvious, Gov Obiano will work closely with Gen Gbor in the electioneering campaign whose outcome will be a pleasant surprise to the Nigerian people.”
