Anambra Election: Obi carpets APC, says protest at INEC headquarters is ‘foolish’

Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, on Wednesday lambasted the protest organised by the All Progressives Congress (APC) over the outcome of Anambra governorship election, describing the action as not only “unwise but foolish”.
Obi who spoke at Alex Ekwueme’s Square where he distributed 280 brand new vehicles to Directors of the local government system and 80 buses to local councils, said as far as he is concerned, the governorship election is over.
He wondered why people without origin in Anambra, would believe that their own party deserved to win the election.
According to him, those who went to protest in Abuja did so because of selfish reasons, not because they love Anambra people.
“How many Anambra people participated in the Abuja protest over the election,” Obi quipped.
“To make the matter worse, some of the home states of those who filed out in protest against Anambra election, are burning and they could not proffer solution to the problem.”
“How, as outsiders, would you weep more than the bereaved,” he asked rhetorically.
On the governor-elect, Willie Obiano, Obi said he has no agreement with him and does not require anything from him.
“Fortunately, he has more enough personal wealth before coming to contest the governorship election; and so, my advice to him is: serve the people. I have no agreement with him. I don’t need anything from him”.
Obi praised Anambra people for voting for continuous progress of the state and for its future.
