Aide to the former governor of Anambra state, Mr. Peter obi, Mr Nduka Alor has lampooned his former boss for allegedly sponsoring thugs to foment trouble in Agulu community due to what he described as selfish interest
Hon. Nduka Alor, a native of agulu who served as Special Adviser to the former governor on youth mobilisation said it is ludicrous for Mr. Peter Obi to throw all cautions to the wind in his shameless effort to pull wool over the eyes of Agulu people in their committed desire to cue behind the State governor, Chief Willie Obiano and the National Chairman of the Party cum the Senatorial flag bearer of the party in Anambra Central, Chief Victor Umeh.
Alor, who addressed journalists in Awka yesterday over the recent attack of Umeh’s campaign vehicles at Agulu, Obi’s home town said that Obi should by now bury his face in shame in Agulu community.
Recall that the Anambra state governor and Board of Trustees (BOT) Chairman of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) , Chief Willie Obiano and the National chairman of APGA/ Senatorial candidate of  Anambra central senatorial zone, Chief Victor Umeh alongside other APGA leaders escaped unhurt on Sunday when some sponsored youths attacked them at Agulu during a campaign rally.
During the attack, it was reported that some party chieftains were not so lucky to escape as the chairman of Anaocha local government area , Hon Ike Obi Ejiofor was stoned seriously and beaten to pulp among others with broken heads, even as many vehicles were damaged including Umeh’s billboard at ‘Nwagu Agulu’ and its environs.
Hon. Nduka Alor however blamed the attack on Peter Obi saying that “he is the brain behind all the problems in Agulu. “He had worked for Anambra State for eight years and nobody disturbed him, I wonder why he doesn’t want another person to do his work.
“He really wants to create enmity between us and the governor who has vowed to complete all the projects in Agulu and Anaocha council area including the popular ‘Agulu lake Resort.
“Governor Obiano promised us that his administration was working on all projects initiated by our brother, Mr Peter Obi and would complete all of them in record time assuring us that new projects would soon be awarded in the community.
“Gov. Obiano also assured us that he will work very hard to develop Agulu even more than our brother who hails from this town” he said.
The former aide insisted that those who formented trouble in Agulu are not all from Agulu but hired thugs.  “So let Obi stop deceiving our youths. If he did well for eight years as he claimed, our people will have no choice but to support him now but the truth remains that he failed all of us and our stand is to continue to support APGA come what may. We are not sheep that can be dragged about”  he said.
Continuing, Hon. Nduka Alor aligned himself with the stand and resolutions of the Agulu Youth Movement which states clearly that the youth body has endorsed the party’s National chairman, Chief Victor Umeh for Anambra Central Senatorial zone bid, urging youths not to allow themselves to be used by unscrupulous and over ambitious politicians.
