Okorocha's questionable past, reason he's no match for Obiano'

Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State on Tuesday picked up his expression of interest form for the forthcoming governorship election from the Victor Oye faction of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

He also took the opportunity to reiterate his earlier comments that the threat of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) that election will not hold in the state was empty, stating that their activities did not constitute any threat to the conduct of the election scheduled to hold on November 18.

Speaking on the party’s crisis, he maintained that the Martins Agbaso faction of the party was fake, saying the structure of the faction would soon collapse.

Obiano vowed that the election will be hitch-free, noting that in line with the already released timetable of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), nothing could stop the election’s schedule.

He said, “The threat that election will not hold is not correct. The fellow you are mentioning did not say there won’t be an election. By the way, yesterday, you would have heard war veterans met me, the people that really fought the war, 87 of them.”
