Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), of trying to plunge the state into crisis in order to use its federal might to impose a state of emergency.
Obiano stated this in reaction to reports credited to the APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, where he called on the Governor to “write his hand over notes and start preparing to vacate office”.
Obiano said: “No doubt this statement, which we consider as coming from not just Chief Oyegun but from the ruling APC is a clear threat to Nigeria’s democracy and security in Anambra State.
“We have it on good authority that they have been working at various options including an attempt to foment insecurity in the state to pave way for a state of emergency as a prelude to their take-over. What this requires is that Anambra people and Nigerians in general, especially lovers of democracy and good governance should be alert.
“It has again re-affirmed the undemocratic nature of many APC apostles and this is unfortunate for our nation, especially at this critical point in our history when democratic tenets should be nurtured,” he said.
