Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, The former Governor of Abia State and an All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain in the South East, has taken a swipe at the Anambra State governor, Willie Obiano.
Kalu said Obiano is known for his excessive and expensive love for the bottles, thereby wondering why such person became a governor in the first place in a premium state like Anambra.
The Newtelegraph, quoted Kalu as said this while flagging off campaign rally for Dr. Tony Nwoye, an APC gubernatorial candidate for Nov, 18 election in the state.
Kalu described any attempt at continuing the spent and inebriated government of Anambra State as unacceptable.
Speaking at the Campaign rally at Ufuma, Orumba North Local Government Area of the state, Dr. Kalu said, Anambra, as the heartbeat of the Igbo nation and home of sane and sound intellectuals, cannot be run like a “beer parlour.”
According to him, the issue with Obiano is not about his constant a hangover, but he equally failed in making any meaningful impact as a governor for three and half years in office and therefore should be voted out.
Kalu challenged the people of Anambra to take over the opportunity offered to them on November 18 to correct the mistake of having a failed governor, to elect a very young and former student leader, Hon. Dr. Tony Nwoye, who is the APC candidate in the poll.
Dr. Kalu stated that Dr. Tony Nwoye, being a young man has a cerebral fecundity with acute prowess in ideas and innovative solutions to take Anambra State to a greater height.
“I performed very well as a governor in Abia State because I was young then, and now the people of Anambra must vote a young man for the state to move forward,’’ Dr. Kalu said.
