Anglican Church Demands Apology From Obiano For ‘Betraying’ Igbos
The Anglican Church in Anambra State has demanded an apology from Governor Obiano for ‘betraying’ Igbos in the run-up to the last general elections.The Anambra State Governor who was asked to tender unreserved apology to Ndigbo for allegedly insulting the National President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief John Nnia Nwodo, was also asked to apologize over his ‘open support’ for President Muhammadu Buhari’s reelection during the electioneering campaign.
The Bishops Charge presented on Friday by Rt. Rev. Samuel Ezeofor at the 2nd Session of the Fifth Synod of Diocese of Aguata holding at St James Anglican Church Uga, Aguata Local Government Area of the State, described the act as betrayal of the Igbos which, according to him, inflicted a deep wound on the people of the region. The leaders of the Anglican who demanded an apology from Governor Obiano for ‘betraying’ Igbos, said;
“The insult Chief Willie Obiano laid on President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Chief John Nnia Nwodo was a betrayal of the highest order, a betrayal of the whole Igbo people, a betrayal of his own people. It was an insult on the whole of Igbo race and we call on him, His Excellency Chief Willie Obiano to apologize to Ndigbo.We do not know how Governor Obiano can explain the stance he took but may it please him to know that he wounded us so deep in his bid to stop his benefactor Sir Peter Obi. We also need to let the Governor know that we are not unaware of his moves against the Anglican faithful in Anambra State.”
