Anambra State governor Willie Obiano’s supporters claim that “Willie is working”, in reference to alleged delivery of development projects and infrastructure in the state.
However, opinion is sharply divided on Obiano’s alleged performance. A source close to the governor has revealed a different kind of “performance” – involving remarkable resilience. Obiano is said to stay up practically all night on marathon drinking sessions.
The source claims that the governor, who is seeking reelection in November, struggles to stay “switched on” after the all-nighters. Obiano tends to favour dark sunglasses even while indoors during the day. This may have something to do with burning the midnight oil while knocking back copious amounts of alcohol – allegedly.
If Anambra voters are not satisfied with their governor’s performance as they go to the polls on 18 November, they can always blame it on the a a a a a alcohol.
