Governor of Anambra state, Willie Obiano, on Sunday, took a sly dig at his opponents during the governorship debate organised on Sunday by Channels Television.
Obiano aimed digs at Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Mr Oseloka Obaze and United Progressive Party candidate, Osita Chidoka.
Obiano, who is seeking a second term in office on the platform of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) argued that none of those out to boot him out of power were competent to be governor and that they were better off doing something else.
He also accused them of lacking facts about the state even though Obaze, a former diplomat at the United Nations, served under him as Secretary to the State Government for more than a year.
“By the way, what Anambra requires is somebody that can drive the process and I am the only guy here that can do so. Tony (Nwoye) doesn’t have the executive capacity, he hasn’t worked in his entire life.
“My good friend Oseloka Obaze worked in the UN, but the best place for him to work now is in Syria – to be distributing relief materials,” he said.
“My other fellow with executive capacity is (Osita) Chidoka. He has a good executive experience but his executive experience is in number plates and controlling traffic,” the governor said, recalling Mr Chidoka’s time as Corps Marshall of the Federal Road Safety Corps.
Sunday’s debate spanned three hours with the debate proper lasting from 7 pm till 9 pm with sandwiched between a 30-minute pre-debate analysis and a 30-minute post-debate analysis.
