There is palpable fear among the concerned well-wishers of the governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano over the plan by the Traditional Rulers in the Anambra Central Senatorial Zone to confer on him the Chieftaincy title.
The event which has received media hype and scheduled to hold is planned to honour Governor Obiano in recognition of his contributions in the service of the people since the inauguration of his government March 17, 22014.
The conferment of the Chieftaincy title on Obiano’s predecessor, Chief Peter Obi by all the Traditional Rulers in Anambra State few weeks to the end of Obi’s 8-year tenure was in appreciation of his publicly-acclaimed all-round sectors of life in his first time in office (2006 – 2010) and second term (2010 – 2014) respectively.
The planned award of Chieftaincy title on Governor Obiano by Anambra Central Zone of the Traditional Ruler is generating anxious moments among insiders and outsiders over the timing of the presentation which political watchers have tagged a “send-forth” event and last bazaar.
According to them, if the governor’s jobbers are convinced that he would make it in the forthcoming gubernatorial election on November 18, 2017, the prize-giving event would better be given after this year’s election than before it.
In their thinking, since Governor Obi bagged his chieftaincy title as he was exiting, Governor Obiano loses nothing if he concentrates on his re-election bid and waits till after the election to pick the honourary Chieftaincy title.
The conclusion of the pundits is that, if the governor picks the honourary Chieftaincy title before the election and in his first term in office, he may have kissed bye-bye to the return bid and the planned Chieftaincy title-giving seen as send-forth gesture and last bazaar!
