*Says Governor’s comment that certain individuals outside Anambra are responsible for unrest has vindicated the APC governorship candidate

 

The Senator Andy Uba Governorship Campaign Organisation, SAUGCO, has reacted to media reports absolving Anambra citizens of the spate of violence and killings plaguing the state.

Giving reasons Governor Willy Obiano failed to attend last Tuesday’s regional parley on the deteriorating security situation in Anambra, Special Adviser on Political Matters to Governor Obiano, Chief  Ifeatu Obiokoye stated that the governor could not fathom sitting to discuss security with “certain individuals” who he alleged were behind the violence rocking the state.

“What people are saying goes to no issue in the first instance because it is public knowledge that those doing the killings are not from Anambra state and no Anambra person would go to this extent.

“These people are from outside Anambra state and you expect the governor to be holding meetings with them on security challenges which those people are executing?,” Obiokoye had said.

Flowing from the Political Adviser’s open confession that no Anambra person, high or low, is involved in the disturbances ravaging our dear state, SAUGCO argued that it is “our contention that he ought to have taken the moral high ground by going ahead to offer unreserved apologies to our Candidate, Senator Andy Uba who the Obiano camp had strenuously tried to malign.”

The group added: “Conventional wisdom dictates that it is counterproductive to seek to play politics with issues of security. This is so because in attempting to politicise any security challenge, the real culprits would be left with leeway to continue to evade detection.

“Now, with the open admission that Senator Emmanuel Nnamdi Uba is not in any way involved in the ugly spectacle going on in Awka, the honourable thing to do is, offer unreserved apologies to him.

“We have always maintained that issues of security are everyone’s call, hence our relentless call on Governor Obiano to step forward and take charge,” Ogene said.
