Nwosu rules out Obiano’s sec­ond term in Anam­bra

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Emma Elekwa, Awka

A for­mer min­is­ter of Health, Pro­fes­sor Alphon­sus B.C. Nwosu, yes­ter­day ruled out the chances of Gov­er­nor Wil­lie Obiano of the rul­ing All Pro­gres­sives Grand Al­liance (APGA), in the state of get­ting a sec­ond term in of­fice.

He said Anam­bra State could not af­ford to con­tinue “on its costly path of self­in­flicted iso­la­tion from the na­tional grid by be­long­ing to an en­clave po­lit­i­cal party.”

Nwosu spoke in Nnewi, while ad­dress­ing news­men af­ter a meet­ing of Anam­bra Union, a group com­pris­ing of pro­fes­sion­als, re­tired civil ser­vants, am­bas­sadors and aca­demics, at­tended by six as­pi­rants from the APC and PDP.

He said that the next gov­er­nor of the state must be pro­duced by either of the two op­po­si­tion par­ties in the state be­cause of their na­tional out­look.

“Who­ever as­pires to govern Anam­bra State that pro­duced the great Zik of Africa, Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu and Chinua Achebe among other gi­ants must be ac­com­plished in learn­ing and hu­man man­age­ment,” he said.
