Former Governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi, has described the statement by Governor Willie Obiano concerning the transfer of Boko Haram prisoners a “blatant lie.”
Governor Willie Obiano on Thursday, July 2nd 2015, stated that arrangement to relocate boko haram prisoners to Anambra state was concluded in 2012 during the reign of former Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan and Obi as governor of the state.
In a state by his media aide, Mr. Valentine Obienyem, Peter Obi said he was shocked that Governor Willie Obiano would personally release such a statement, stating that those statements are nauseating and childish.
According to The Vanguard, Mr. Valentine Obienyem said that the last have not been heard of the [lanned relocation of boko haram prisoners to the state.
Obienyem said governor Obiano should be grateful to Peter Obi for leaving behind N75 billion in cash and investment at a time when other governors where squandering state funds and also for restoring the pride of the state, instead of trying vainly to drag Peter Obi’s name to the mud through this kind of statements.
