Gov. Obiano denies travelling to U.S for Daughter’s graduation with 179 people

Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, has denied report that he travelled with 179 people to witness his daughter’s graduation in the United States.

Gov. Obiano(pictured with his family) in a statement his Senior Special Assistant on Media, James Eze, released said the online report was untrue and offensive.

The statement reads, “After watching with horror, as what began like a cheap, despicable gossip on the social media slowly began to assume all the qualities of a serious propaganda, with some poorly informed politicians latching onto it to burnish their faded glory, we consider it necessary at this point to put a disclaimer on the story suggesting that the governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano had travelled to the U.S. with 179 people to be with his daughter on her graduation day.

“This story is the worst lie ever told by a disappointingly unintelligent opposition and its propaganda machinery. The truth however is that the governor travelled to his daughter’s graduation alone. Anyone seen around him in the US travelled on their own.

“It is totally incredulous to suggest that Governor Obiano, who in all his three years in office has never travelled overseas with any of his closest aides, would suddenly open the floodgates and travel with 179 people to a mere graduation in the U.S. It is even more ridiculous to believe that any governor of Anambra State (not a banana republic, mark you) would conceive of such an idea in the 21st Century.”
