The APGA gubernatorial candidate in the coming November 16 governorship election in Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, has explained his absence from the last lap of the gubernatorial debates organised today in Awka by Channels Television in collaboration with the League of Anambra Professionals (LAP).

In a carefully worded letter to the General Manager of the station, Mr. Kayode Akintemi, dated Friday, November 8, 2013, Chief Obiano expressed his deepest regrets for his inability to participate in the programme.

In the letter signed by the Head, Media & Communication, Willie Obiano Campaign Organisation, James Eze, the APGA flag-bearer said his absence was necessitated by the fact that he had “a pre-arranged commitment with a critical segment of Anambrarians outside of the Awka Capital Territory that will be taking place at the same time.”

Explaining further, Chief Obiano assured the station that he would be “available for any other engagement you might come up with before and after the election on November 16, 2013.”

News Express reports that the APGA candidate had consistently appeared on previous TV debates and was selected as one of the best debaters among the 23 candidates after the official debate organised on November 1 by the Nigeria Elections Debate Group (NEDG) at the Women Development Center Awka.
