Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano has said the thought that his predecessor, Peter Obi, made him governor is wrong.
He said this on Tuesday when he appeared on Channels Television’s political programme ‘Politics Today’ which was anchored by Seun Okinbaloye.
When Obiano was asked how he expects to succeed in his reelection bid having reportedly fallen out with some of those who played key roles in his emergence as governor especially Peter Obi, he said it was up to God and not one man.
He said: “First, it is God that makes the king. Again, let me also correct this impression, Peter (Obi), the former Governor, cannot on his own make me the governor if the former chairman of the party or the whole party did not agree.
“So, it is a wrong perception to think that one person can come and make you a candidate.
“But having said that, he (Obi) helped us during the campaign, ran around and all those stuff, but I have established myself firmly through my performance and that is what people listen to.
“I don’t believe in Godfatherism and you can see how I played it out. I am a very straightforward, no-nonsense, very focused, very visionary leader and I don’t need to climb the back of anybody. My performance this past three-and-a-half years is stellar.”
