Mbazulike warns against plot to hijack Anambra guber



ELDER statesman and First Republic Minister of Aviation, Chief Mbazulike Amechi, has warned Anambra people to beware of people, whom he said were bent on hijacking the upcoming governorship election without following due process.

Amechi gave the warning while speaking to newsmen at his Ukpor country home in Nnewi South Local Government Area of Anambra State, yesterday.

Calling on the people to rally round Gov. Willie Obiano’s commitment to bequeathing a legacy of sustainable democratic culture to ndi Anambra, Amechi warned those behind the plot to desist or get ready for his opposition.

According to him, those behind the plot are people with zero pan-Igbo sentiment who are afraid of losing the contest on a level playing ground and are therefore plotting to impose their cronies from outside the state.

“The current trend in Anambra and Nigerian politics is that politicians tend to hijack the electoral process without due process. During our time, people cast votes and their votes count. Today, the story is different. That is why politicians go to any length to hijack elections nowadays, including foisting their cronies on the people.

Now, I have it on good authority that people who do not wish Anambra and Igbo people well are perfecting their plot to upstage ndi Anambra’s choice. In the past one or two weeks, I’ve been reading on the media about the on-going processes leading to the Anambra governorship election coming up November 6, and I’m not well pleased.

In some cases, political parties presented their own candidates, while some other individuals make themselves candidates. That is not good for our electoral process. At this time and age, a state like Anambra can’t afford to produce a governor that is not of the people.

If we agreed on this, we have the time now to check the anomaly. Anambra must not wait to be given a governor from the backdoor. If that happens, I’ll be the first person to oppose it,” he warns.
