Former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi on Wednesday opened up on the circumstances that led to the emergence of Chief Willie Obiano as his successor, instead of the current flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Oseloka Obaze.

Addressing a mammoth crowd of state chapter of Southeast/South South Women of Substance group at the PDP rally in Ezinihite, Aguata Local Government Area of the state, Obi disclosed that issues arose within the fold of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) following the refusal of the party's former National Chairman, Chief Victor Umeh to accept the candidacy of none of the three aspirants brought out to replace Obi.

He said the candidates were: Obaze, Hon Chinedu Idigo and Dr. Chike Obidigbo.

According to him, “Umeh, in an effort to ensure that neither of the three aspirants emerged candidate of the party, disqualified all of them.

“For the interest of peace in our party, we accepted his decision and started campaigning for Obiano.

“Obiano came in and did nothing in four years. If he had done some work, it would have spoken for him without him making noise about it. Somebody that didn't do anything in his first tenure, in his second tenure he will go to sleep.

“I said it when we were campaigning for Obiano at Nnewi that if he fails to work, I will lead the campaign to oust him and that is what I am doing.

“I don’t have issues with Willie Obiano, he is my friend but I have problem with Governor Willie Obiano. We need to put a person that would work for the benefits of Ndi Anambra, that is my interest. Anambra needs capable hands to move it forward. The selling point in politics is work, when you work your work will speak for you.

“If Obaze works well as governor, people will hail him anywhere he goes the way they hail me now.”

Speaking at the campaign, PDP standard bearer Obaze said that he has come to right the wrongs of the present government of Obiano saying that he (Obiano) was a bargain gone wrong.

He said he would work towards a thriving government by dedicating 26% of the state budget to education, place people of 75years and above who have not worked before on monthly salary of N5,000 among others.
