SUB: PETER OBI- A Hope Betrayed By Edwin Chukwujekwu & Nonyelum Nwokoye

‘’Time they say sweeps everything along and can bring good as well as evil, evil as well as good.’’ Nicolo  Machiavelli.

Since 1999 Anambra would have been a good example of how  Nigeria will be except for bad leadership and high powered deception by the political class, thus betraying the hopes of the people.

Today, as the state navigates towards 2010, we as concerned Anambra citizens are worried about the future of the state and the fact that the impoverished  people  traumatized by poverty may be incapable of standing or voting against their oppressor- in - chief .

Otherwise, how do we explain the audacity of the ‘’Continuity Project’’ being powered by the incumbent governor Mr Peter Obi  in the face of general insecurity, decayed infrastructure, bad roads, parlous educational system, unending strike action by the state work force, hunger and starvation in so many homes , death in hospitals , disgraceful image the state acquired on account of non performance of  his government and other unimaginable consequences  of the wickedness inflicted on the people.

How will the people progress from this point without a change? Our mission is to cause change and  enthrone good governance in the state .

There is a common saying  that ‘’you can fool the people one time  but  you cannot fool all the people  all the time’’.

Obi’s four years tenure has exposed his  crass ignorance to the rudiments of good governance, incompetence and lack of values for human capital development.

As stake holders in the Anambra common wealth ,we are duty bound to alert our fellow citizens of the danger of continuing to allow a ruthless drug baron  who ought to be facing justice to govern us for another four years.

In furtherance, we give 10 reasons why Obi’s continuity project should be stopped by our collective will except he offers explanation on the following key issues:

1.      Those who knew Peter Obi will attest to the fact that he has been a drug dealer beginning from his days as an undergraduate at UNN. He was hardly attending lectures and only managed to graduate with a third class in Philosophy after spending 12 years in the University.

2.       His brother in-law who  incidentally  is one of the hirelings used by him for  his nefarious drug trafficking business is currently languishing in jail in far away London . This is the major cause of strain between Obi and his in-laws. It is on record that his closeness to Dubem Obazie was the because he Dubem served jail term for drug trafficking because of Peter.


3.      Obi should explain his relationship with former Military Administrator,  Governor Ibim Princewill and Col Earnest Kizito Attah of Cross River State whom he helped as a conduit to fleece Cross River State government thus contributing to the under development of the state.

4.      Obi should explain to Ndi Anambra the circumstances surrounding his father’s death which remains his best kept secret.  Before then we can reveal  that Obi’s father  was drowned to death by Obi’s  associates in the drug trade whom  he  short-changed in a business deal prompting the mafias  to kill the old man whom they drowned   bounded  hands and feet  with bricks round his neck.

5.      Given the level of insecurity in Anambra state , ‘’Saint’’ Peter Obi  should explain how he expends his security vote  since it is on record that he collects over 470 million  naira per month as security vote (220 million naira from Local Government and  250 million Naira from the state FAC accounts)

6.      Just as Peter Obi professes his Catholicism for political expediency, we ask him to summon the moral courage and explain to Catholic faithful his relationship with the Olumba Olumba Obu (OOO) Cult sect where his wife is a known member. It is also on record that Peter Obi met the wife at a night club in Auchi . The lady had two children from two different men -an Albino and a Ghanaian. The affirmed Catholic is yet to wed his wife in the church.

7.      Obi is yet to explain the mystery behind the 250 million naira that was found in the possession of his aides. He is yet to produce the contractor and publish the contractual agreement that stipulates that this very  contractor will be paid in cash and also a reference to any other known precedents. Not even the famous late Barkin Zuwo of Kano State paid contractors in cash.

8.      Obi should explain why he has continued to  loot the resources of the state  using his brother, Ndibe Obi, Ejike Onwusogbulu and a certain Chidi Agbapu -a Lagos based stock broker  as a conduit for money laundering while the youths in Anambra remain unemployed;

9.      Obi was elected governor on the platform of APGA and it is on record that he never convened an APGA meeting  thereby destroying the entire party structure. Obi  should explain to party  faithfuls and loyalists why he destroyed the party;

10.     Obi should explain to Ndi Anambra what happened to the state local government allocations and why Anambra under Obi is the only state in Nigeria  without elected local government officers in place?

In view of the foregoing, we demand his immediate resignation or face further disclosure of his criminal past and present.
