The Director-General of Atiku/Obi Campaign Organization in Anambra State, Dr. Harry Oranezi, has accused the Anambra State governor, Willie Obiano, of threatening to dismiss Anambra civil servants who will vote against President Buhari on the Saturday’s elections.
The allegation noted that a memo has been sent to the administration department of the Anambra State Post Primary Schools Service Commission, PPSSC, to supply information about teachers and civil servants in the state ahead of the presidential election.
However, Governor Obiano, who spoke through the Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Don Adinuba said there was no iota of truth in the allegation.
But Oranezi, who addressed reporters in Awka, said the directive was indicative of a rigging plan, warning Governor Willie Obiano against acts capable of undermining the election and the electoral law.
Vanguard quoted Oranezi as said, “Among many acts of the governor included threats of dismissal of Anambra civil servants that do not vote for President Muhammadu Buhari, the candidate of APC.
“The governor directed that text messages be sent to civil servants in the state. The text message read: ‘Please submit a return on these details of staff in your school to Admin. Department of PPSSC Awka zonal office as directed by the Executive Governor of Anambra State, namely, 1, Name; 2, Voting Ward and 3.Polling Unit.
“Return to be submitted before close of work on 20/02/19. Please acknowledge receipt of this information.”
