A first class monarch in Anambra State, Igwe Chijioke Nwankwo, has urged former governor of the state, Peter Obi, to end his feud with his successor,Willie Obiano, in the interest of the state.
Nwankwo, who is the traditional ruler of Nawfia and Umunri in Njikoka Local Government Area of the state stated this at his palace on Sunday at a press briefing.
He said Obi should be grateful that the man he brought to succeed him was doing well in every ramification.
“Even in a family, there can be sibling rivalry occasioned by jealousy, but we don’t allow such things to grow beyond certain level,” he added.
He said whatever could be the cause of the misunderstanding betweem Obiano and Obi ought to be resolved by now in the interest of the state.
He said, “Obi is the person that should take the step to end this issue. He ought to realise that if Obiano is not there as governor, he(Obi) would be facing all sorts of investigations and probe by now. So, he should end this feud now.”
The monarch spoke against the backdrop of the just concluded general elections, where the former governor allegedly worked against the interest of his former political party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance in favour of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Nwankwo enjoined the people of the state to rally round Obiano in his bid to positively change the face of the state, especially in the area of security.
