Buhari likes hardworking governors like me, says Obiano

Willie Obiano, Anambra State Governor, says President Muhammadu Buhari likes governors like him who are hardworking and deliver on their campaign promises.

Speaking after meeting with Buhari at the villa on Tuesday, Obiano said the President reassured him of a free and fair governorship election in Anambra State on November 18.

“He [Buhari] has reassured free and fair election; that’s what should be important to me,” Obiano said.

“He likes governors like me who are hardworking, who are delivering on what people can see, who are bringing dividends of democracy to their people, that’s what the President wants.



    “He doesn’t care about your party; he wants to know that you are doing well in this area, in that area, and that’s how a President should work.”

    Obiano said that Buhari’s expectation is in tandem with the policy of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), which is regard for best practice.

    “We do not believe in rigging, APGA has never rigged an election,” he said. “All we want is for the umpires to be unbiased – free and fair election – and you will get the result.”

    Buhari also met with Rotimi Akeredolu, Governor of Ondo State, who visited him in the company of Kayode Fayemi, Minister for Solid Minerals Development.
