PostSubject: Obasanjo, Elechi meet over Ebonyi gov election   2015-04-09, 06:57

A former President of Nigeria, Chief
Olusegun Obasanjo, and Governor
Martin Elechi of Ebonyi State met for
over two hours on Wednesday on
issues bordering on Saturday’s
governorship and state House of
Assembly elections in the state.
It was learnt from sources in the
state that the meeting, which held
at the Government House in
Abakaliki, the state capital, had only
two of the governor’s aides in
attendance.
But a source close to the governor
denied knowledge of such
meeting, saying, “I heard Obasanjo
was in Ebonyi State to visit his in-
laws, but I am not aware that there
was a meeting between him and
the governor in the Government
House.”
However, a former commissioner
confided in our correspondent that
the former President, whose son’s
wife hails from Elechi’s hometown
in Ikwo Local Government Area, did
not want his visit to the governor
to be made public.
However, the former commissioner
stated that Obasanjo’s visit to the
state was aimed at stopping the
governorship candidate of the
Peoples Democratic Party and the
incumbent Deputy Governor, Mr.
Dave Umahi, from emerging
victorious in Saturday’s elections.
He said, “Obasanjo is not pleased
with the kind of treatment being
meted out to his contemporary and
friend, Elechi, by the PDP. He is not
pleased that Elechi’s candidate and
a former Minister of Health, Prof.
Onyebuchi Chukwu, was denied the
Ebonyi PDP governorship ticket.
“He is also not pleased with the
crisis that has engulfed the state in
general since after the ill-fated
Ebonyi PDP primaries and has come
to ensure that Elechi’s wish
prevails.”
It will be recalled that while Elechi
is still a member of the PDP and
supported the re-election bid of
President Goodluck Jonathan, his
aides defected to the Labour Party
where they were campaigning
against the PDP in other elective
positions. They only campaigned
for Jonathan’s re-election bid.
However, The PUNCH recalled that
Elechi was conspicuously sidelined
at President Jonathan’s campaign
rally in Abakaliki recently.
The governor, who has lost control
of the PDP structure in his state,
was not given an opportunity to
speak at the rally, which held at the
Abakaliki Township Stadium.
Meanwhile, in a live broadcast to
the people of the state on
Wednesday, Elechi warned against
manipulation of Saturday’s
elections.
