Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State on Sunday alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is plotting to destabilise his government.
According to him, the PDP had commenced the 2021 governorship campaign in Anambra two ahead of the election.
“The next governorship in Anambra State will take place in 2021 and the next round of general election will not hold until four years’ time. Yet, the Anambra State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has started the electioneering for both the governorship and general elections,” the governor said in a statement issued by his Commission for Information and Public Enlightenment, C-Don Adinuba.
“If the party had confined itself to development issues of the day, the people of Anambra State would not have been as alarmed as they are today. But it has rather been igniting and stoking all kinds of fire in a state most Nigerians regard as the most peaceful, stable and the most competitive in the whole country,” he added.
The Anambra State Chapter of the PDP however denied the allegation, saying that the governor was only haunted by his poor performance.
“Obiano is haunted by his poor performance. He should leave the PDP out of his problems. The unfulfilled promises to communities are haunting them. The crises they stoked in various communities are haunting them,” Ndubusi Nwobu, Anambra PDP Chairman, said.
