Obiano goes through Alhaji, CoS before he can see Buhari – Andy Uba claims

Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the November 6, 2021, governorship election in Anambra State, Andy Uba, has claimed that any time Governor Willie Obiano went to see President Muhammadu Buhari in the Aso Rock Villa, he usually follow an ‘indirect route’ to see the President.

Uba, however, said that that would not be the case if he emerged Governor of Anambra State.

Speaking during a media parley in Lagos on Monday, Uba said, “You can’t compare Anambra to Imo or Ebonyi because they go directly to the President. But the governor goes through Alhaji to the Chief of Staff (CoS) for him to get to the President.”

It had been earlier reported that barely a day after the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami SAN, threatened the imposition of a State of Emergency on Anambra State to tackle insecurity in the state, Governor Obiano was at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa to meet with the President.

Uba, however, expressed optimism that everyone will vote for him during the election, stressing that, “we are bringing people together in Anambra. Even the governor’s ward chairman, deputy governor, left him.

“Everybody is coming to APC. So everyone is voting for me because they have realised that the centre is the key. They don’t know what the centre means. This is our own. You must open your hand and make sure you work with the centre.”

The APC standard-bearer maintained that Governor Obiano, who is backing the candidate of the All Progressives Grand Allaince (APGA), Prof. Charles Soludo, to succeed him as governor, is detached from the “realities on ground” in Anambra, adding that the governor has not had a face-to-face interaction with his deputy governor, Nkem Okeke, in 18 months.

His words, “Obiano has not seen his deputy governor for 18 months. They have not seen each other. What kind of leader is that?

“Obiano does not engage the people. You must engage the people that are agitating in your state. He cuts off people that are not with him, even if they are from his place,” Uba said.
