Unlike in Ebonyi State, where traditional rulers fell over themselves to pay obeisance to President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, their counterparts from Anambra State, were nowhere near the President, when he eventually made his entry into the state, on Wednesday.

Though the schedule of the President included a meeting with the monarchs, through the Anambra State Traditional Rulers Council, the snag, appears the venue, with the Chairman, Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Nnaemeka Achebe, allegedly insisting that the meeting should take place at his palace in Onitsha.

Angered by the development, the Anambra State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), took it out on Governor Willie Obiano, of the state, accusing him of deliberately scuttling the meeting for political reasons, thereby embarrassing the President.

The party, claimed that by the governor’s alleged action, he had sabotaged a rare opportunity “for the state to seek redress to varying issues of neglect by instigating the leadership of the Anambra State Council of Traditional Rulers to boycott the President who is currently in Awka for the grand finale of the APC governorship campaign.” 

A statement by the State Chairman of the Party, Bar. Emeka Ibeh today in Awka, said it was very unfortunate and regrettable that Obiano denied Ndi-Anambra a huge opportunity to interact with the President “in our very home, relaxed enough to ask critical questions on issues affecting Ndigbo."

Ibe, who acknowledged that the President’s programme of activities included meeting with the monarchs, said: "It is to our chagrin that the highly respected Royal Father suddenly did a u-turn, insisting that the President should rather meet them at Onitsha," Ibe said. 

"Such a sudden change does not happen in vain. We are aware the Governor has been threatening to withdraw the certificate of any traditional ruler that disobeys his directive on boycott. "

"Governor Obiano is clutching at any available straw but it is painful he could go this length to frustrate the interest of our people just to serve self and worse, rope in our traditional rulers into this macabre dance."

" Yes, the President is the leader of the APC and is in Awka for our grand finale but he is the President of the entire country. Such visit is usually exploited by leaders of any state irrespective of party affiliations to discuss and push issues of great interest to the front burner. "

"Why is Anambra different? It is simply because an incompent (incompetent) regime, who has lost the trust of the people wants to remain in power."

He therefore said the Governor has freely offered another reason for Ndi-Anambra to vote APGA out on Saturday.
