The Osita Chidoka Campaign Organization says it has uncovered a plot by some elements in Governor Willie Obiano’s administration to coerce teachers and other civil servants in Anambra State to vote for the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Saturday’s governorship election or face victimisation.

Viola Ifeyinwa Okolie, Director of Media of the campaign organisation in a statement issued on Monday, described the threat as “completely wicked and a vicious act of extreme desperation, symptomatic of a drowning leader cast in a frenetic mode to hang on to power even when it is obvious that the time is up.”

Okolie said that the Obiano administration and APGA have been in morbid fear of the popularity and overwhelming public endorsement of Chidoka and the United Progressive Party (UPP), adding that it is despicable that in their nervousness the Obiano group is seeking to drag down innocent civil servants for rejecting them.

“While we salute the courage of the workers for mounting a stiff resistance and exposing this threat; and though we also know that Governor Obiano is already on his way out, the Osita Chidoka Campaign will still leave nothing to chance in protecting our civil servants, especially knowing they are dealing with very vicious elements. In this regard, this organisation has again assembled a team of lawyers to take up pro bono, any act of harassment, suspension, unwarranted transfer, query, delayed salaries, denial of promotion or any unjustified action against any civil servant before, during and after the elections.

“We are already working with senior labour leaders in the state to ensure that all workers at all levels are covered and protected. We have the list of all workers and their designations and we are set to resist, with full force, and to any length, any infraction against any of them.  

“Whoever advised them to threaten our civil servants has helped the Obiano administration sound its death knell as the workers, by this are now fully determined to end the harassments by dealing APGA a devastating blow at the poll. 

“The fact remains that if the Obiano administration had done well, its backers would have no need to threaten people or act like that devious character, who, knowing that his time is up, prowls like a roaring lion seeking who to devour,” the statement read.
