Anambra governor a victim of smear campaign

04 December 2015, 21:51

Abuja - A prodemocracy organisation has alleged opponents had hatched a plan to smear Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, following the ongoing demonstrations by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the Southeast.

Society for Good Governance and Democracy Coordinator, Dr Ibe Mokwugwo, said the unnamed perpetrators had been circulating material online and in social media, alleging Obiano’s involvement in the violent protests.

At least nine civilians, two police sergeants and eight otherswere.

Mokwugwo said there had been suggestions governor’s visit to the spots around Onitsha, where there was violent demonstrations, led to alleged killing of some people.

“There is no doubt that these heinous allegations and smear campaign are part of the grand design by desperate opposition to discredit the hard working governor by pitching him against the President (Muhammadu Buhari) and at the same time cause disaffection between him and peace loving citizens of Anambra State,” said Mokwugwo.

“It is noteworthy that the desperation on display by these sponsored opposition has gone out of hand such that they are trying to distort and disturb the peace in the state just to further their political interest and distract the governor from executing his programmes for the people.”

Members of the public and media have been urged to disregards the allegations.
