Governor Obiano to Oyegun: You lack moral authority to speak on good governance

Governor Obiano to Oyegun: You lack moral authority to speak on good governance

ANAMBRA State governor, Willie Obiano has declared that the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Odigie-Oyegun, lacks moral authority to speak on good governance in the country.

Reacting to a statement attributed to the APC national chairman where he called on the incumbent Anambra state governor to “write his handing over notes and start preparing to vacate office,” the latter noted that such statement lacks democratic spirit.

Governor Obiano who reacted through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Strategic Communications, Oliver Okpala said the APC national chairman record as first civilian governor of Edo state was unenviable and as such lacks the moral authority to sermonize on good governance.

He said: ‘’this is a former Governor who has no traceable achievement to his name as far as his tenure in Edo state is concerned. Apart from high level of thuggery, brigandage and insecurity, no one can recall any meaningful development recorded during Oyegun’s government in Edo state.

“It was also during his era that a very low level of governance was introduced to that state, a clear departure from the pragmatic and result oriented leadership style of the likes of Professor Ambrose Ali and Dr Samuel Ogbemudia, both of blessed memory.

“It was during Oyegun’s tenure that the song of ‘no money’ for projects became the regular cry in governance circle in Edo state. He could not think outside the box.

“Many Nigerians still remember that Oyegun also won the unenviable record of the Governor during whose tenure Edo state recorded the lowest score in WAEC. The records are there for all to see! So, what is a failed governor talking about when it comes to good governance?

“Indeed Oyegun has no moral right to speak on issue of good governance in Anambra state or any part of the country. If what we practice is a democracy then the will and wish of the people should be respected.”

Governor Obiano further noted that scathing indictment trailing Chief Oyegun leadership of the ruling party by its chieftains was an illumination that they have lost confidence in his leadership.

‘’Many Nigerians also know how he emerged as National Chairman of the APC. It was a clear case of political imposition which has left the party prostrate till date. As we speak, the APC under his watch cannot hold meetings of its crucial organs. No wonder its house is in disarray.”

“What this clearly shows is that Oyegun is a virus in APC, as he has foisted his regime of lack of internal democracy in the party. No wonder the party is seriously bleeding today, suffering from constant defections, calamitous directionless, and crass incompetence.

The implication is that the party is heading for doom if Oyegun is not quickly removed. No wonder, a prime founder and leader of APC Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his followers have since called for his removal.

“It is this weak leadership style that he wants to import into Anambra state? After all what is his business with Anambra when he has not been able to put his own house in order.

“Oyegun’s declaration that his rudderless party would take over Anambra is also an unfortunate exposure of that undemocratic spirit and cancer that has befallen the APC.

If what we practice is true democracy, where democracy is the government of the people, for the people and by the people Oyegun could not have made such an unguarded utterance.

“His declaration that ‘APC must take over Anambra’ is a signal that they are bent on forcefully overturning the will of the people who are the true custodian of democracy.

“Granted, as Oyegun said, Anambra is crucial to their plot of making inroads into the south east, but must that be achieved through undemocratic means which often leads to bloodletting and mayhem?”

Governor Obiano also recalled that the Minister of Labour and Employment Dr Chris Ngige had also made similar remarks, saying “the implication of this is that the APC has contrived a grave plot to undermine the will of the Anambra electorate, to forcefully take over the governance of Anambra state.

“Instead of working genuinely to win the love of the people of Anambra as required in a democratic setting, the APC leaders who know that Governor Obiano has performed creditably are rather working out sinister plots to unseat the Governor.

“We have it on good authority that they have been working at various options including an attempt to foment insecurity in the state to pave way for a state of emergency as a prelude to their take over.

What this requires is that Anambra people and Nigerians in general, especially lovers of democracy and good governance should be alert.

“The naked truth is that if anything untoward happens in Anambra the world should hold Oyegun responsible. Power is given by God and must not be sought for by killing and devilish orchestrations. A destructive means cannot bring about a constructive end.

“If unchecked, APC’s negative political appetite would mean that the upcoming elections and the inherent display of the power of choice by the electorate would all be an exercise in futility.

For them, since they control the Federal government which is in charge of the crucial agencies such as INEC, the Police and other security agencies  then their sinister motive would be easily achieved.

“This is how low our democracy has sunk under Oyegun and his APC. It is indeed an unfortunate event and a clear threat to our hard earned democracy which so many Nigerians fought hard to achieve.
But the truth is that their evil plans would surely fail as God and the good people of Anambra are solidly behind Governor Willie Obiano.”
