Anambra people berate Obiano & wife as they abandon state to US for Covid vaccine
Residents of Anambra State have berate the governor, Mr. Willie Obiano and his wife, Ebele, as they abandon the state’s health facilities in decrepit conditions and run to the United States for Covid-19 vaccine.
Reports filtered in that the wife of the governor took off first for the vaccine and while there, finalized arrangements for her husband to follow suit.
Reacting to the development, a concerned citizen of Anambra State, Mr. Odumodu Gbulagu wrote:
“This is the First Lady of Anambra taking Covid-19 shots in faraway US. Agu Awka was ravaged badly by the virus last week, and Gov. Obiano’s driver and his friend Ambrose had to go into isolation.
“Osodi has taken the vaccine and has secured appointment for the Governor to take his own vaccine before the end of the month.”
Lamenting that Obiano will travel before month end for the vaccine, he noted:
“Plans are already concluded for Gov. Willie Obiano to travel before the end of the month to the USA to take COVID-19 vaccine.
“When are we taking ours?
Another concerned resident of the state, Mr. Eneh Victor Chigozie wrote:
Osodieme, I learnt that COVID 19 cases are rising.
The CMD Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital was quoted to have said that there are “rising cases of covid-19” and that there are “escalating death rates.”
In view of the above, the CMD went on to state that the “3 bedded isolation center (in the hospital facility) is filled to capacity and cannot admit further patients.”
He is therefore requesting for an additional isolation centre.
While the state is facing these challenges, the First Lady of the state jetted out of the country to protect herself and her family members alone leaving the actually vulnerable ones to die here.
This shows irresponsibility and highly condemnable act.
Those who posted that video showing Osodieme proudly taking COVID 19 vaccine in far away USA with a statement that she is working hard to get an appointment for the husband, the governor to come over and get vaccinated in USA is an indication of ineffectual relegation of responsibility and total failure of governance.
Responsible leaders take bullets for those they govern. No patriotic leader runs away from war to protect only himself and family.
In a sane country, this attitude will mark the end of APGA.
In another post, titled “Nigerian leaders have no shame”, he continued:
I saw a video where the wife of governor Obiano of Anambra state was taking a COVID 19 vaccine in USA. In that video, she narrated the difficulty she went through to get accredited for the vaccine.
She went on to tell Nigerians especially ndi Anambra that she is also working hard to get a pass for the husband, to get his own COVID 19 vaccine which she said has proved abortive. But said hopefully, his will get through by next week.
When asked when the vaccine will get to Anambra so that the common man can be vaccinated like her, she said she doesn’t know.
This is where we are. Atiku Abubakar who announced that he would contest for president in 2023 was also reported to have gone to Dubai to take his COVID 19 vaccine.
These are our leaders. They care not about us. There are no good hospitals in Nigeria. Our doctors are leaving the country in drove seeking for a better welfare and pay abroad.
Those who ought to fight for vaccines for Nigerians are rushing to overseas to take the vaccine for themselves and their families. Sad enough, their bills in oversea and logistics where they seek to get the vaccine come from the public purse.
This must be condemned.
All these leaders must be forced to stay back and find solution to our problem. The First Lady is in US fighting for vaccine for herself and her husband, who then will fight for ndi Anambra?
And her media team has the gut to upload same on social media for us to clap for her.
Shame on APGA!
Shame on our leaders!!
Shame on PDP for not condemning Atiku who flew to Dubai to take COVID 19 vaccine while poor Nigerians are dying here. Who does he want to rule in 2023 if everyone dies of COVID 19!!! [End]
Anambra residents are lamenting that after 8 years in office, all Obiano has to boast of is that he paid workers salaries, meanwhile leaving the state in a far more decrepit condition that he met it.
