The Ifeanyi Ubah Campaign organization has warned Governor Peter Obi not to drag the late Dim Emeka Ojukwu into the contest asserting that the late Igbo warlord would turn in his grave at the desecrations of APGA by the outgoing governor.
Responding to claims that Chief Ubah dodged questions during a recent radio appearance by making it impossible for listeners to ask him questions in the audience participation programme, the Ubah Campaign accused Obi and the APGA candidate of resorting to misinformation to deceive the public.
“This election will be defined by issues not by empty boasts about achievements. It will not be won by the invocation of the revered name of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu., who would be turning in his grave at the great rape carried out in the state by Peter Obi,” the Ubah campaign said in a statement issued by Ayo Akinola on behalf of the Ifeanyi Ubah Election Campaign Committee.
Singling out Governor Obi’s spokesman, Val Obienyem of masterminding the alleged misinformation, the Ubah campaign said: “Val lied when he suggested that Ubah made it impossible for callers to ask him questions when he was featured on a live radio program. Ifeanyi Ubah has never shied away from being asked questions as Obienyem knows full well.
He was available for questioning in Florida during the ASA-USA Conference and it is on record that he put up a stellar performance at a time when Willie Obiano had a terribly poor showing that he could not remember the name of his running mate. Ubah loves being taken on as he believes that a leader should be open to questions from his people.”
