You Have No Political Value In Anambra, Obiano Tells Ojukwu
Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, has said that Emeka Ojukwu, son of the late Igbo leader, Chukwuemeka Odimegwu-Ojukwu, has no political value in Anambra State.
This was contained in a statement by Obiano’s media aide, Oliver Okpala, made available to pressmen in the state capital on Saturday.
According to him, Emeka Jnr, has lost political relevance in the state since the day he made up his mind to join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The statement partly read, “It is a matter of pure pathetic fallacy for the younger Ikemba to say that Governor Obiano is lobbying him to come back to APGA.
“The governor wondered on what grounds anybody would ever lobby Ojukwu to return to APGA while he never held any important position to warrant being described as a stakeholder or a leader of the party when he was a member of APGA. In fact, nobody knew that he was a member of the party.”
The statement added, “I wonder what the Great Ikemba would be thinking when his son openly denied the only political entity which he left to unite the Igbo under a political umbrella.
“It is unfortunate that Ojukwu’s son described an elder and the governor of his state as one playing juvenile and local politics when the late Ojukwu respected constituted authorities.
“We urge Ojukwu Jnr to show respect to the governor and continue his sojourn with the APC rather than make untrue remarks about the governor.”
