Prince Ken Emeakayi, said to be one of the factional leaders of the Anambra State Chapter of the PDP, at the recent meeting of the group in Awka, the Anambra State capital, reportedly urged Obiano to quit.
“After a careful study of the Address of Ordinarily, we wouldn’t bother to join issues with Prince Emeakayi who is well known for his penchant for attention-seeking and political brinkmanship,” James Eze Senior Special Assistant on Media to Obiano, said.
“But his call for Governor Obiano’s resignation over the controversial N75bn purportedly bequeathed him by his predecessor, former Governor Peter Obi borders on the grotesque and the bizarre and should be smacked down before it misleads the uninformed.”
Eze said fom all indications, it appeared Emeakayi was either uninformed or ill-informed on the matter.
“He should have done himself and his factional group a world of good by keeping silent or picking another soft-bone to sustain his lust for the limelight. Sadly, he chooses to play to the gallery as usual, thereby compelling us to bring him back to what he should know.”
He said while Emeakayi was entitled to freedom of speech, the call for the resignation of Obiano must be ignored.
“Truth is; Emeakayi’s tirade is empty of substance and meaning and should be roundly dismissed as the hollow echoes of a dying drum.”
