Pics: Anambra governor pays congratulatory visit to Buhari, solicits appointment for Igbos

Anambra state governor Willie Obiano who is an APGA party member paid a congratulatory visit to President elect, General Buhari in Abuja yesterday April 24th. According to Governor Obiano, he came to congratulate Buhari on his victory at the polls as well as ask him not to sideline the Igbos in the constitution of his cabinet. Governor Obiano denied speculations that his visit was a move for him to defect to the APC.
"It is not correct. I will remain with APGA and work very closely with Mr president. I came to congratulate His Excellencey the President -elect on his victory and I am also here to reassure him that Anambra and the south East would support him.

I also pleaded with him on some pressing problem that are of importance to the south east like the second Niger bridge and some of the federal roads. We also pleaded in the area of appointment for the people of Anambra and of course for people from the south East be it ministerial, ambassadorial and what have you. So basically it is to congratulate the president elect on his well deserved victory.” he said

Nice one, 4years is too long for the southeast to play opposition politics.
Rochas is a bridge more sure than the second Niger bridge, more reason today we're going to return The peoples Governor to Douglas house.

Na wa o! So much demands on the President elect, and he hasn't even resumed the position yet...this man is not Jesus Christ o!

And why are some people bringing selfish requests for him to work on. Let us focus on moving the whole Nigeria forward for now, and not for him to focus on pleasing a people.


Yea, Linda, once again...I am planning a trek from Oshodi to Abeouta...that is Lagos to Ogun state on the 30th of May. I would love if you could help with some promotion/publicity.

Stupid south eastern people they should have thought about that while voting tribalistic bigots

Appointment is for individual but would rather opt for the construction of needed infrastructure for the region most importantly functional seaport and other things that would drive the economy of the region.

Do people think before they write?Did he attempt to read his statement before spewing this out?

Gov Obiano openly campaigned for Mr. president.while its very ok to extend your hand of fellowship to the winner,openly saying "well deserved" means the other contender isnt/wasn't deserving of it.please someone help me out here.

Yes I can tell my opponent that he fought a good fight and in the spirit of sportsmanship,I'll wish the winner well but to say the person "deserved" it more is an indictment on me.

Gov obiano,shame on you.Mr. president gave you his full backing during your elections.

So u re saying the Igbo's should be sidelined because they didn't vote for him? Okposi girl.

Alagbado-ode said...

I love people who are realistic, and this is one. Anyone is free to campaign for a candidate of his choice during electioneering, bbut once a winner emerges, one should be realistic enough to know where the power lies and channel ones legitimate demand accordingly. After all the winner is nnow for everybody and not just for a section.

@treasure
Why didn't Yorubas vote Buhari against Goodluck in 2011, you have forgotten that Buhari ran with Pastor Tunde Bakare. I believe that the Igbos are tribalistic when it comes to politics but the Hausas/Fulanis are not left out. The core north voted enmass for Buhari in 2011 too, but the Yorubas simply had a change of mind due to Goodluck's incompetence.

Anonymous said...

U ar very stupid. Everyone has his or her right to vote and campaign for who he wishes to. Assuming GEJ won, u stil see people dat campaigned and voted against him doin d same thing obiano did. Afterall, GMB got massive votes frm Hausas and Yorubas too. So stop talking rubbish. It is. Buharis duty is to make Nigeria beta regardless of who voted for him

Hausas voted massively for Buhari, if He had failed...I'm sure they won't hate them, however Igbos voted for GEJ and is congratulating GMB...and some lazy/stupid undemocratic bigots are here talking trash and exposing their follies! Being an Igbo has never been easy, We are Israelitic in nature and I'm sure most of you know what happened to the Egyptians and their Pharaoh!
