Obiano, Wife in Closed-door Meeting with Buhari


Two weeks to the end of the tenure of Governor Willie Obiano, he had held a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari today in at Aso Rock.

The outgoing Anambra Governor visited the President with his wife, Mrs Ebelechukwu Obiano, who is nursing a senatorial ambition.

Investigation revealed that the governor’s wife also paid a similar visit to the First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari.

The meeting triggered speculations in the social media as Nigerians wondered why the Governor opted to visit the villa a few weeks to the end of his tenure.

Recall that Obiano had previously announced that he would be going to the US to rest, after his tenure as governor.

Obiano lived in the US, after a glowing career with Texaco as a Chartered accountant before he was called back home to serve as governor.

Last year, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had placed Obiano on its watchlist, alleging that he had questions to answer, and may possibly try to leave the country.

Incidentally, as at the time of the declaration, Obiano was overseas, and there were insinuations that he may never return home.

However, the Aguleri-born politician returned to the country and called the bluff of those who were making insinuations about his attempt to escape.

Obiano told journalists that he had no question to answer, and more so, no reason to want to flee the country.

He reminded those who wanted to intimidate him that he was still the governor, and still had his immunity intact.
