*As two different groups chose them as Best Performing Igbo Governors 2016
Another faceoff between the Imo state Governor Owelle Rochas Okorocha and the Anambra state Governor Chief Willy Obiano is brewing as two different organisations have chosen them as Best Performing Governors of the year 2016, the first in the entire South and the second in the South East.
While Owelle Rochas Okorocha was picked as the best performing Governor in Infrastructure and urban development in the entire South of Nigeria, the Governor of Anambra state was chosen as the Best performing Governor all round in the entire South East.
The Award to the Imo Governor was announced by the Publicity Secretary of the Coalition Of Youths And Pressure Groups Of Nigeria, CYPEGN , Mr Oluwole Daramola while the Award to Governor Obiano was announced by the Igbo Achievers Network and the Coalition of Igbo Youth Organisations represented by Mrs. Kelechi Egejuru and Mrs Ezinne Colbert , their Publicity Officers.
The camps of the two governors are claiming that the other side did not deserve the award and it’s only their own governor that truly deserves the award.
Supporters of Owelle Rochas Okorocha led by Damian Anyanwu of Rochas Supporters Forum claimed that Rochas has transformed Imo state and affected the lives of Imolites positively .
He noted that the achievements of the Anambra state Governor is only on paper.
The supporters of Governor Obiano led by Okolo Charles of the Coalition of Groups for the re-election of Governor Willie Obiano claimed that he (Governor Obiano) deserves the Award.
They say that Owelle Okorocha still owes Imo workers and pensioners, hence does not deserve any award.
Nigerians are keenly watching this curious development which they thought the Ohanaeze Ndigbo and a group called the World Igbo Youth Congress have settled.
