BIAFRA: Obiano speaks over alleged Sport Utility Vehicles, $50,000 gift to Nnamdi Kanu

Willie Obiano
The Anambra State governor, Chief Willie Obiano has finally opened up on the report of how he bribed the members Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), with a cash gift, and two Sport Utility Vehicles.

Obiano was reacting following a report by an online medium which accused him of giving a gift of two Sport Utility Vehicles and cash of $50,000 to IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

Speaking through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Strategic Communications, Oliver Okpala, Obiano described the story as “untrue and complete falsehood.”

The publication had alleged that the SUVs and cash were delivered to Kanu shortly after his release.

But, the governor’s aide  insisted that the allegation was the handiwork of the opposition.

“Most worrisome and satanic is the allegation that the governor gave cash donations and SUV vehicles to the organisations and its leaders.”

Okpala said such unfounded allegations were ungodly and capable of creating unnecessary tension in the polity.

He maintained that the governor, as a consummate financial expert, had been managing the state’s scarce resources with prudence, adding that government’s expenditures had been judiciously done.

The governor’s aide  wondered what people gained in peddling rumours and lies instead of engaging in meaningful ventures.

He appealed to politicians to enthrone political civility, decorum, good conduct and truthfulness in their campaigns and activities.

“Overheating the polity, when INEC electoral timetable for Anambra State says campaigns would commence in August, is a clear indication that some politicians in the opposition are not prepared to play by the rules,’’ he  said, adding that such disposition could have a catastrophic effect on the conduct of November 18 election.

“Our decision as law abiding citizens to play politics according to the rules and to eschew bitterness, falsehood and indecent approach to political issues, should not be taken for weakness, as nobody has monopoly to the articulation of dangerous propaganda as an instrument of political warfare.

“Certainly, if these pleas are not heeded, we shall not have any alternative than to return fire for fire as a word is enough for the wise.”Okpala said.
