75 Billion Naira Matter :Obi Urges Caution and Restraint

The former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has called all parties in the ongoing media war on Anambra State finances to stop all 'hostilities' and remember that the dignity of the state and its people must be upheld at all times. In a statement made available to the press, Obi who said that he was in the final week of his program at University of Cambridge and has not been physically available for clarifications, expressed displeasure over a needless controversy that can be put to rest by a simple recourse to available and verifiable public records. He urged his supporters and the supporters of Gov. Willie Obiano to apply restraint in the interest of peace and development in the State.
Obi said that it was becoming clear that some people, including aides, are going beyond the issue at stake- 75Billion cash and investment, which includes Naira in the banks, dollar savings and investment- he left, which, according to him, are documented and verifiable to warrant unnecessary write-ups and calling of names.
Describing the many write-ups - news, opinions, commentaries, features - he has read on the matter as very sad, Obi appealed for caution - especially as he has offered to clarify any issue or doubts about his tenure, if need be. He said the Governor remained a friend, and that the good people of Anambra State should join him in prayers to succeed in the improvement of the fortunes of the children of the State
