The former special assistant to former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi on Inter Party Relations and the younger brother to Sen. Joy Emodi, Chief Ben Obi has denied maligning his former boss.
In a press conference at his home town of Agulu on Saturday, Chief Obi said that he was not so conversant with the social media and that he had not put anything there. He said he neither directed anybody to put anything on his behalf nor was he contemplating such.
He described as lunacy and height of mischief, people circulating malicious publications on Mr. Peter Obi and linking his name to such.
Ben Obi, who traced the action to desperadoes that are bent on tarnishing Obi’s image, described him as the “best Governor Anambra State has had.”
He added that if indeed he had problems with Obi, it would be discussed at the kindred meeting and not a matter for the media.
Chief Ben Obi said he was part of the bedrock of Governor Obi’s Government and that he bore many scars from different battles he fought for him simply because he believed in him and his vision for the State.
He, therefore, said it was not possible for him to join the opposition now or in future to fight an institution he was part of.
