Anambra State governor, Willie Obiano has said no person or group can stop the governorship election in the state.
The governor spoke with journalists in Abuja on Tuesday when he visited the national headquarters of APGA to pick his nomination form.
He also boasted that he would win the November 18 election.
Obiano said, “That is not correct. They did not say there will not do any election. By the way, yesterday (Monday) you would have heard the word veterans who met with me, these are the people who fought the war, 87 of them.
“They were at the lodge to meet me and what they said was that they would support the election and they had endorsed my election on the second term journey.
“The leader of that group, Gen. Lathucia, most of you should know him, is the brain behind IPOB. So that comment that election won’t take place in Anambra, let me begin to dissipate that now.
“They didn’t say that and there would be an election in Anambra. Nobody can stop the election in Anambra when INEC has already mapped out the time table. We would not even allow anybody to do that, to stop the election in Anambra state, we won’t allow that.”
On the Ozubulu killings, the governor said, “let me make this point: Ozobulu killings is not the kind of terrorism you use to know, it is not by Boko haram or anybody.
“Again, it is not by people agitating for separation. It was a feud between two gangsters that live outside Nigeria. They killed themselves over there and they decided to come home and both of them are from that village where the church was built.
“We have picked up some guys and very soon, I’m very confident that we are going to pick up the guy that did the killings, dead or alive.”
