The National coordinator APGA media Warriors Forum, Evang Chinedu Obigwe, Wednesday lambasted Tony Nwoye’s running mate, Dr. Dozie Ikedife Jnr over a statement credited to him which reads ‘Obiano has no moral justification to seek for Nnewi votes’, describing such as flimflam coming from an uniformed America returnee as he equally swiped Obaze for his comic role of taking pictures in shanties to wrongfully portray the image of failure to Governor Willie Obiano’s  led democratic and highly achieved administration.

“Since the emergence of Obaze as PDP candidate he has been entertaining Nigerians with his comedy skills of taking pictures in shanties to misreport and thwart Obiano’s achievements. But it would be better for him to join Nollywood where he can compete with comedians like Nkem Owoh,” he said.

In a statement issued, Obigwe opined that Nnewi was one of the communities that have gained so much from the democratic dividends of Obiano’s led administration.

In his words, “Outside appointing Nnewi indigenes into lucrative positions in government the Governor is currently executing many projects at Nnewi.

“Some of which includes, (1) Construction of some selected roads in Nnewi: Justice Nwazota Road Oraifite, St Theresa Nnobi road, St Peter’s Nnewichi, Oguonu road  (2)Construction of Okpuno – Umuenem Street Otolo Nnewi -Awka Etiti Road, (3) Construction of Nnewi Urban Road, Onuzulike Okonkwo and Francis Maduka Road, (4) Construction of Louis Carter road Uruagu Nnewi, (5)Construction of ibeto factory road Nnewi.

“I know Ikedife returned from America and has been wallowing in ignorance, when he settles down he will see that Nnewi is indebted to Gov Obiano for a good work done for them.”

He further said that Dr Dozie ikedife jnr acceptance of Deputy Governorship position from APC was a betrayal to Nnewi people and the entire Anambra South, noting that his action depicted nothing less than incompatibility with his people who agitate for the return of power to their zone after the completion of Governor Obiano’s second term by 2022.

He said that the APC governorship candidate can be likened to the biblical Esau that sold his birth right for a pot of porridge yam.

Obigwe advised Nnewi people to ignore him and vote en mass for Governor Obiano coming November 18th. He stated that Governor Obiano deserves to be commended for his investment in the education sector that has been yielding fruitful results for the State.

He lauded the Governor for the renovation of 1, 400 schools in the State and for releasing 733million to mission schools for renovation.

Finally Obigwe said that the reason why Obiano’s opponents are relying on using blackmail to unseat him is because they knew that the Governor has performed beyond the expectations of the people, thus the evil hope of the Governor’s opponents is already dashed because his victory in the forthcoming November 18th election has been sealed by God.
