Senator Abaribe has revealed Nnamdi Kanu position on Anambra Election.
Newsone reports that the Nigerian Senate Minority Leader, Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe, has disclosed that Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), never gave the order for elections not to hold in Anambra State, southeast Nigeria.
This online news platform understands that Senator Abaribe revealed Nnamdi Kanu position on Anambra election on Friday, October 29, 2021, when he addressed a town hall meeting with the leadership and students of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University (NAU) in Awka, the Anambra State capital.
Newsone Nigeria reports that the town hall meeting, which was held at the ASUU NAU Building, was organised by Valentine Ozigbo, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2021 governorship election to present his manifesto to the university community.
Senator Abaribe while addressing the gathering, revealed that he called Kanu’s lawyer, who confirmed that the order did not come from the IPOB leader, accusing fifth columnists of engineering the rumours.
“Who gave the order that there will be no election? IPOB has never said that there will be no election in Anambra. It is the handwork of fifth columnists,” Senator Abaribe said.
Senator Abaribe went on to drum support for the PDP candidate, describing him as a “gentleman with impeccable character.”
“When I decide to support anyone seeking public office, I am more interested in the character of the person. If you cannot stand up for your people, you don’t deserve to be a leader.
“Anambra deserves a governor that will not always go to Abuja, plate-in-hand. We want a governor that will stay in Anambra and work for his people.
“It is rare for me to endorse a candidate publicly, but in Val, I have seen someone who is sincere, qualified and eager to work for the people. Hold me responsible in the unlikely event that he does not fulfil his promises.
“Anambra roads are a nightmare, and we all suffering from it. Every citizen wants quality roads, electricity, education, and healthcare. In my interaction with Ndi Anambra, an average Anambra person needs a governor with impeccable character, and that man is Valentine Ozigbo.”
