Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has dismissed allegations that he is supporting President Muhammadu Buhari to return for a second term in 2019.

Speaking through the Commissioner for Information, Con Adinuba, said stories of Obiano endorsing one presidential candidate or the other were merely configuration meant to use his name to sway support for their principal.

He said: “As the 2019 general election approaches, it is interesting how various politicians and political parties have been swooping on Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State in the belief that his role will be critical in deciding who wins the presidential vote.

“For instance, operatives of two of the leading political parties in Nigeria, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have taken to the social media to create the impression that the governor has endorsed their candidates in the forthcoming election.

“Some have even gone as far as reproducing a video of an event which took place in 2014 in a bid to give the impression that the event has just occurred, but this is not true.”

The commissioner stated that Obiano was neither working for Buhari nor Atiku as he was his own man.
