2010: Traditional rulers back Obi for second term

By Vincent Ujumadu

AWKA—AS the 2010 governorship election in Anambra state draws closer, traditional rulers in the state have spoken out in support of the re-election of Governor Peter Obi, saying their reason is to ensure continuity in governance.

Anambra state is known to have a history of changing Governors after every tenure, due mainly to non-performance, but with the acclaimed performance of Obi, there had been calls that he should be supported for a second tenure.

The monarchs, who spoke at the Governor’s Lodge in Awka after touring some of the projects executed by the present administration, observed that the state had never had it so good.

Igwe Peter Ezenwa, the traditional ruler of Oba in Idemili South Local Government Area, who spoke on behalf of other traditional rulers, said with what they saw on ground, they will go back to their respective domains and advise those challenging Obi to be patient and wait for 2014, to enable the present Governor complete most of the projects he has started, including the implementation of the master plans for Awka, Nnewi and Onitsha.
