Responding to Ngige’s claim, Governor Obiano’s Senior Special Assistant, Political, Hon. Tony-Collins Nwabunwanne , however described Ngige as a confused politician and attention seeker who only wants to distract him in the good work he is doing in the State.
Ngige, who had earlier said that his achievement in three years supercedes APGA’s eleven years in office had vowed that Obiano won’t return in 2017 to the Anambra state government House.
He further described Obiano’s administration as a failure, but Nwabunwanne disagreed with Ngige, insisting that Obiano remains the best.
Hon Nwabunwanne , a former House of Assembly member and Youth Ambassador noted that APC should first of all fix Nigerian economy that has caused untold hardship and hunger to the people rather than looking for any state governor to criticize.
“If Ngige is a super leader, he should endeavour to address the lingering Labour problems in the country which even degenerated to the killing of a civil servant in Kogi and other states.
“My party has replied him, what he needs is attention because I am yet to see any political party that has been able to do what APGA government has done in Anambra State. Ngige should listen to Senator Ben Bruce who is not even from Anambra or an APGA loyalist but urged Federal Government to borrow a leaf from Anambra state in terms of Security and infrastructure and prompt payment of workers salaries.
“Anambra is today an investment destination and safest state in Nigeria, courtesy of His Excellency the Governor of Anambra state, Chief Willie Obiano. So, I don’t actually know what the Labour Minister meant by poor performance in office. If you compare the two years that Obiano has been in office and Ngige’s three years, you will see that the difference is clear.
“So, we challenge Ngige to a public debate. People like Ngige should be thankful to Gov. Obiano for extending dividend of democracy to Idemili area where he came from. Obiano is constructing roads and Bridges, controlling erosion and renovating schools and hospitals in Idemili which Ngige never did for the people of Anambra North when he was governor” he noted.
On the 2017 governorship election in the state, he further said there is no vacancy in government House until people from Anambra North complete their 8 years tenure while urging others from South and Central to allow him complete his 8-year tenure.
“Any sensitive person knows that the only way peace can reign in Anambra State is to allow the people of Anambra North complete their 8-year tenure because this state will return to the era of crisis if Anambra North are denied this remaining four years” he warned.
