Anambra guber: Obi shocked by Nnewi thuggery

The former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi has expressed shock and disbelief over the reported disruption of the programme of Mr. Valentine Ozigbo at Nnewi. In a release from his Media Office signed by Mr. Valentine Obienyem, Obi said that what Anambra people expected to hear at this time was the programmes those seeking various elective positions had for the people and workable strategies they had in place for the effective implementation of such programmes in the overall interest of the State.

Describing what happened as  “shameful” and a “throwback to superseded ways”,  Obi said that politics all over the world had passed the stage of thuggery to a stage where those seeking power are expected to behave like statesman and women who have the interest and progress of the state at heart, rather than the crude mentality of acquiring power by all means and thereafter becoming confused on what to do with the power so acquired.

It would be recalled that some hoodlums, under the cover of anonymity, destroyed some materials meant to be used by Mr. Valentine Ozigbo for his “Walk for Life”, a programme in Nnewi last Saturday.
