It should be recalled that Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano imposed a 9 pm to 6 am Covid-19 curfew in Anambra State, following the hike in the number of Covid-19 cases in the state. He gave the directive through a public service announcement by the SSG Prof Solo Chukwuwlobe.
However, the Anambra State chapter of the All Progressive Congress APC has faulted the governor for imposing curfew in the state, while he stays in the United States of America.
On Monday, The APC State Secretary Chukwuma Agufugo revealed at a press conference in Awka:
“It’s abnormal that a governor, every other month if he is not abroad, his wife is abroad. It’s depletion of Anambra state funds – money that should have been channelled to the development of infrastructure. The economy is dwindling. It’s very pathetic and the governor has travelled again in the presence of the surging of the pandemic”.
Stressing further, Agufugo revealed that, “Every day, you see an increase of the COVID-19 and the governor of the state is abroad, taking leave, not even having the courtesy of transmitting power to his deputy, officially. It calls for concern. We call on him to cut short his trip and come back to Anambra to address the needs of the people. He cannot see the real issues in Anambra from America. Obiano should come back and rule Anambra from Anambra”.
According to reports, C-Don Adinuba who is The Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment had said that the allegations against the Governor were not true.
