The Senior Special Assistant to Gov. Peter Obi on Media and Publicity, Mr. Valentine Obienyem, has attributed what he called the problem with Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah to learning wrong things from those he interacts with and for allowing his aides to speak unrestrainedly on issues that could be better handled.

Obienyem said this in a statement released in Abuja in reaction to a statement credited to Ubah questioning the rationale behind Governor Obi’s presentation of cheques of N2.5 billion to all the secondary schools in the state for their rehabilitation and a jeep each to all the traditional rulers in the state.

Obienyem said that while Ubah had learnt to bring Gov. Obi into any nonsense he uttered or his aide uttered on his behalf, he had forgotten to learn from those mentoring him, that even among worst “enemies”, there is time to condemn and time to commend.

Obienyem expressed surprise that Ubah condemned the distribution of cheques to schools and the vehicles to traditional rulers to enhance their functions. He said Ubah’s outburst has confirmed people’s speculation that he is insensitive to what makes for a good and prosperous state. “This tendency questions his suitability as a leader in fact or in dream,” Obienyem stated. 

As to Ubah’s position that Obi was forced to act because he himself gave money to traditional rulers that attended his sister’s wedding, Obienyem said he was not ready to amuse anybody by bringing traditional rulers into disrepute, for that, as he said “is the only thing sensible people will make out of Ubah’s caustic effusions.”

Speaking further, he said the over 600 vehicles from Innoson Motor Manufacturing Company, Nnewi, for traditional rulers, schools and each town in the state was ordered and paid for over a year ago to promote made-in-Anambra goods and could not have been a carthathic reaction to any development. “In Nigeria today, many react to Obi’s ideas because of the fertility of their conception. Much as the governor is always willing to learn and even emulate noble acts, but not from people utterly incapable of though,” Obienyem concluded.
