Condemnations have continued to flow against the gubernatorial aspirant under the platform of Progressive Peoples Alliance, PPA, Chief Godwin Chukwunenye Ezeemo who recently expressed his disappointment over the statements made by the former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Prof. Charles Soludo while delivering a lecture as part of activities to mark Chief Willie Obiano’s three years in office as Governor of Anambra State.
The latest attack on Ezeemo concerning his statements against Prof. Chukwuma Soludo came from a legal luminary, Barrister Patrick Agbata who advised Chief Ezeemo to campaign on issues profitable to Ndi-Anambra and not to unnecessarily attack the high profile sons and daughters of the State that had made the State proud in their different fields of endeavour.
Barrister Patrick Agbata who stated this while playing host to Thirdeye247.com at his Afor Nkpor office, Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State yesterday went on and lauded Governor Willie Obiano on his uncountable achievements since he ascended office as the first class citizen of Anambra State.
“Chief Ezeemo’s statements against Prof. Chukwuma Soludo have clearly shown that Ezeemo had little or no knowledge about governance. The statements credited to him had further proved the type of governor he would be if elected”, the lawyer noted.
It would be recalled that Chief Godwin Ezeemo while addressing selected social media strategists at his Umuchu country home recently had accused the former CBN governor of having acted out a script handed over to him to present during a lecture he presented at a forum organized to mark His Excellency, Chief Willie Maduabrochukwu Obiano’s 3rd year in office.
On what Barrister Agbata described as empty promises of providing steady power supply to Ndi-Anambra if elected coming from Chief Ezeemo, the lawyer of the highest order reminded the philanthropIst turned politician that Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) is yet to declare campaign open in the State even as he warned Ezeemo to guide and chew some words on the ugly utterances he is making against those whom he said, has paid enough price in lifting the image of Anambra State not only in Nigeria but to the outside world.
Nodding his head that the present administration of His Excellency, Chief Willie Obiano has placed high premium on Health, Agriculture, Security and Education amongst others, Barrister Agbata also noted that the award-winning governor of the State has within the period of three years, phased out all manner of corrupt practices bedevilled the State before he came on board as the Chief Security Officer (CSO) of Anambra State.
“The call made by Chief Godwin Ezeemo on Ndi-Anambra to look beyond party and vote in a candidate with character as well as a self made individual who can finance his campaign to a reasonable extent and not a sponsored candidate that would end up a stooge if elected is even showcasing that he has no respect for Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu whom, during his life time, laboured to register All Progressives Peoples Alliance (APGA) and I want to urge Ndi-Anambra to sweep under their carpets any person(s) statement that would toil with the major legacy of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu”, Barrister Agbata ended.
