Anambra state governor, Willy Obiano, visited General Muhammadu Buhari, this morning at his Abuja residence.
Why are you here?
“Well, I came to congratulate His excellency the President -elect on his victory and I am also here to reassure him that Anambra and the south East would support him. I also pleaded with him on some pressing problem that are of importance to the south east like the second Niger bridge and some of the federal roads. We also pleaded in the area of appointment for the people of Anambra and of course for people from the south East be it ministerial, ambassadorial and what have you. So basically it is to congratulate the president elect on his well deserved victory.”
Are you here to embrace change that is the new song in the country?
“Well I am a very focused governor. Under my tenure I brought change in the area of security in Anambra state and I will always support things that would bring change to improve the well-being of Ndi Anambra and Nigeria as a whole. So yes.”
On whether he is in touch with APC leaders from the South East with regard to appointment for people of the south east?
“Yes most of them have actually paid a courtesy call on me and yes we are talking and I suspect that the President is not going to give appointment to only people from his party because everybody would support him and so he has to consider people from the other parties so that we can all embrace the change.”
On speculation that he would soon join the party?
“It is not correct. I will remain with APGA and work very closely with Mr president”
Who asked Obiano to become a spokesman for the Ndigbo . He should speak for himself
