I Never Said I Would Fight Anambra Governorship Election With My Last Blood – Peter Obi
A former Governor of Anambra state Peter Obi has denied reports that he vowed to fight the governorship election in Anambra with the last drop of his blood.
Obi said the reports quoting him to have said such are malicious, wicked and ungodly.
The former governor through his special adviser Valentine Obienyem said Obi never made such statement.
A statement released by Obienyem said: “I read what was reported that the former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi said he would fight the Anambra State election with the last drop of his blood. It is malicious, ungodly and wickedness of the highest order to ascribe such a language to Peter Obi.
“I mean, the language is antithetical to everything Peter Obi stands for. I was there at the meeting; Peter Obi never used that word, never. It is a word he cannot even use in his dream! We do not know where the reporter got that news from.
“For the sake of clarification, Obi said that we would fight the election the way the PDP has never done before and that it would be the first time PDP did one primaries and that the PDP must reconcile now and go to the election as a united family.
“Obi simply said that he was now a member of the PDP and that he would work aggressively to ensure the success of his party, which is the position of all party members working for the successes of their respective parties.
“Obi was the Governor of Anambra for eight years and within those years, as now, he worked passionately for the growth and development of Anambra State. He has continued to desist from anything, be it act or utterances, that will be injurious to the State in any form and he will continue to do so,” Obienyem concluded.
The commission said the comprehensive register would be printed within the next three weeks.
INEC also said the register would be published in three different batches across all local government areas in Anambra state.
