Enugu youths under the auspices of Enugu Youths Association (EYA)has warned Gov. Willie Obiano of
Anambra State to leave Enugu State alone in what the group described as “Obiano’s penchant to claim what are not his.”
The group, in a statement made available to the press, titled “Restrict your Quest to Steal others Achievements to Anambra State” and signed by its publicity Secretary, Comrade Maximus Enekwechi, the group expressed dismay to the claim by Gov. Willie Obiano that it was through his intervention that the first cargo plane landed in Enugu State. They said there must be limit to executive lies, which they noted is not only detrimental to governance, but to the morality of the state.
“In a place the chief executive of a state, such as Obiano does, is only noted for cheating, as he did during the gubernatorial debate or cheating by the means of the irresistible urge to claim the project of others, them he is simply teaching the people of the State and indeed those that look up to him even from beyond the State that cheating and stealing are virtues to live by”, the group said.
Explaining what actually happened that informed their bitterness, the group said: “The first Cargo plane landed at Akanu Ibiam International Airport. Our Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi was there to receive them. While everybody, including his fellow Governors was congratulating him on his efforts to see to that, the Gov. of Anambra State, Chie Willie Obiano, who was not even aware of the developemnt was busy in Awka enjoying himself as usual. The moment he had the news, all he did was to start claiming that he was the one that made it possible through his contacts with Ethiopian Airline. He said this obviously knowing that he was lying.”
Relating it to what happens in Anambra State, the group submitted: “We have read several news from Anambra State of how the same man has been busy claiming projects started and completed by his predecessors. We thought it was mere political accusation, but what he has just done has proved that he is guilty as always charged.”
The group said that has become his style, that by the time one knows it, he will produce a documentary and air it in all the media houses, how his sleepless nights and ingenuity made the development possible.
