Prince Arthur Eze, influential businessman, has said that the Anambra State Governor,Willie Obiano,is not doing the right thing as a governor which is why he had problem with him.
Eze said many people are suffering under his government and he is not paying the traditional rulers in the state their five percent entitlement from the local government allocation.
The Oil Magnate who spoke at his home in Ukpo, Dunukofia local government area of Anambra State on Sunday, said he isn’t not afraid of anybody,” I have installed three African Presidents,one of them gave me oil blocks in his country, I have assisted in enthroning many governors in Nigeria.”
” I have given a governorship candidate N10 billion to assist him prosecute his election.Ididnt know the candidate from Adam,He just approached me and told me about himself and his people,I empathised with him and gave him the money adding” Obiano is just a small fry, Even this Obiano,I have given him financial assistance as a person and as a governor several times.I have no personal problems with him, my grouse with him is that he is not doing the right thing as a governor”
Obiano had suspended 13 traditional rulers who went to Abuja to see President Buhari at the instance of Eze.
In its reaction , the Anambra State government through the Commissioner of Information and Public Enlightenment,C-Don Adinuba, said officials of the state government had decided to maintain ” dignified silence”on the comments.
