‘’Mr. Obiano, in his abject lack of preparation to become a warrant chief, let alone governor of Anambra State, is making use of the promises of Senator Ngige to campaign at rallies and other places.
“For example, Mr. Obiano initially did not promise free education or free ante-natal services for expectant women or free primary health care for children under five as stated in Ngige manifesto.
‘’But after Ngige announced these plans to the electorate, Obiano copied them, promising to do the same for the people.”
Arinze advised the Obiano team to be creative and evolve a manifesto for its candidate.
He said: “With the hype and propaganda about Willie’s CV, it beats the imagination to see such a candidate copy the manifesto of a co-aspirant.
