Obiano said President Buhari likes governors who deliver dividends of democracy to their people and that he also promised government support for a free election in the state.
He said: “He’s reassured free and fair election, that’s what should be important to me.”
“He likes governors like me. (Governors) who are hardworking, who are delivering on what people can see, who are bringing dividends of democracy to their people, that’s what the president wants.”
“He doesn’t care about your party, he wants to know that you are doing well in this area, in that area, and that’s how a president should work.” Governor Obiano, while commenting on his party’s preparedness for the November governorship election in the state also said that his party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, does not believe in rigging.
“We do not believe in rigging, APGA has never rigged an election. All we want is for the umpires to be unbiased – free and fair election – and you will get the result.”
Meanwhile, Evangelist Chinedu Obigwe, the national coordinator of the APGA Media Warriors, cried out saying the All Progressives Congress (APC) was planning to use federal might during the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra state.
Obigwe asked the people of the state to disregard the claim by Tony Nwoye of the APC that APGA was the party planning to rig the election.
