 A youth group in Anambra State known as the Horizon Group, has said its clamour for change in the seat of power is as a result of Governor Willie Obiano’s under performance.

Addressing journalists in Awka, the convener of the group, Mr. Arinze Igboeli, said it would be disastrous for electorate in the state to return Obiano for a second tenure when he had failed to deliver dividends of democracy to the people of the state.

According to him, the Governor on assumption of office, harped on continuity; completion of projects left behind by the Peter Obi administration; and development of all sectors of Anambra simultaneously.

Other areas he continued were improvement on the quality of life in the state through good governance; continuing the state of low indebtedness, running of government with great sense of inclusiveness and also a promise to run a prudent and lean government.

Igboeli said: “Sadly, Anambra people have long discovered that what our governor said about continuity is indeed different from what the word ordinarily means.

“The administration began with a poor start through the mismanagement of our state’s resources. Daily, we were inundated with high level of profligacy exhibited by the administration.

“At first we thought these were merely tell-tale meant to discredit his administration. However, we were forced to begin to see such tales as truth when the government made a volte face on the amount of money left for it by the Peter Obi administration.

“After three years in office, the Obiano administration cannot show any project of note it had completed. We have therefore come to the decision that Governor Obiano, following his dismal failure as Governor, should not seek, accept or run again for the office of Governor as another term for him will surely cast the state further deep down the doldrums.”

The group while accusing governor Obiano of distributing the wealth of the state to his cronies alleged that appointments and contracts under the governor were not made on merit.

Reacting to the statement by the group, the Senior Special Assistant to the governor on media, Mr. James Eze, said the youth group was paid by detractors to undermine the giant strides of Obiano in the state.
