The Director-General of the Atiku/Obi Campaign Organization in Anambra State, Dr. Harry Oranezi has appealed to the Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano to accord due respect to traditional rulers of Anambra State.
In a release made available to the press, Dr. Oranezi said that Anambra people were yet to recover from the text massage Gov. Obiano sent to civil servants threatening them with dismissal if they failed to vote for President Mohammadu Buhari to beheld another shocker – the meeting With Traditional Rulers.
Explaining, Dr. Oranezi said that Gov. Obiano summoned all traditional rulers in Anambra state to Awka on Wednesday, in Government house where he gave them 13m Naira to share among themselves as if they have prices. “The most appalling of it all” Dr. Oranezi lamented, ” was the threat that any traditional ruler that failed to deliver his town will enter his bad book.”
Oranezi who attributed the action of Obiano to disrespect for the traditional stool, reminded Obiano that besides the apolitical status of traditional rulers, that most of them have far more impressive pedigree to be treated in such a cavalier manner.
Calling on traditional rulers to disregard Obiano’s unconstitutional demands, he appealed to them to continue to be the father to all as they have always been.
Dr. Oranezi is urging ndi Anambra to troop out enmass on Saturday to vote for Atiku/Obi and defend their votes irrespective of the antics of the Governor.
