The Anambra State All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned a statement by former Governor Peter Obi calling for a ‘truce’ in the debate about the N75 billion he left in the state.
The party said it was a “vainglorious attempt by an embattled gladiator to assume the role of an arbiter too soon”.
A statement by its Publicity Secretary, Okelo Madukaife, said: “The call for truce was issued by Mr.a Valentine Obienyem, who pooled the propaganda wool over the eyes of Ndi Anambra while Obi looted Anambra State blind, sharing state resources with unthinkable sections of the elite, while the state totters on the fringes of development.
“The Obienyem, who authored the latest statement of insult, was the same person who represented Obi in a television debate where the evidence was laid bare and the confession came clear that Obi indeed lied, as we have since shouted from the rooftops. How can a party in a bad case suddenly become the judge in the11th hour.
