Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, could not resist the urge to take shots at his opponents during the governorship debate organised on Sunday by Channels Television.
The Peoples Democratic candidate in the forthcoming gubernatorial election, Oseloka Obaze, and his All Progressives’ Congress (APC) counterpart, Tony Nwoye, were at the receiving end of the governor’s attacks.
Obiano of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) argued that none of the contenders were competent to be governor and that they were better off doing something else.
He also accused them of lacking facts about the state even though Obaze, a former diplomat at the United Nations, served under him as Secretary to the State Government for more than a year.
Obiano said: “By the way, what Anambra requires is somebody that can drive the process and I am the only guy here that can do so. Tony (Nwoye) doesn’t have the executive capacity, he hasn’t worked in his entire life.
“My good friend Oseloka Obaze worked in the UN, but the best place for him to work now is in Syria – to be distributing relief materials.”
