In advance of the governorship election on March 11, 2023, former Anambra State governor Senator Jim Nwobodo has pleaded with politicians in Enugu not to set the state on fire.

While speaking to journalists on Thursday at his country home in Amaechi, Nwobodo made the appeal.

He said that the need for the appeal came from a video in which a senator-elect named Okey Ezea said that the gubernatorial election would be a “do or die” situation.

Nwobodo stated that he was shocked that someone who had just been elected to represent his people at the National Assembly could make such a provocative statement in front of his people.

“He was literally stirring up war on the day of the next election, inciting the good people of Nsukka against the people of Nkanu.

“First and foremost, I would like to implore the peace-loving people of Nkanu not to respond violently to Ideke’s unprompted statement. We are not our enemies; rather, the people of Nsukka are our brothers and sisters. I had a very good relationship with Nsukka while I was governor of Old Anambra State, and they were my biggest supporters.

He filed a peace lawsuit, urging politicians not to disrupt the state’s peace.

He also said that Peter Mbah, the gubernatorial candidate for the People’s Democratic Party, wants to be governor of Enugu State, which includes Enugu North, Enugu West, and Enugu East, and not Nkanu.

“I repeat, Peter is not running for governor of Nkanu but rather for governor of Enugu state.

In addition, he stated, “I strongly believe that the statement from Ideke does not represent the view of the good people of Nsukka that I know.”

The alleged murder of Barr, the Labour Party’s candidate for senatorial office in the Enugu East zone, was also condemned by Nwobodo. Oyibo Chukwu, calling it unreasonable.

I have condemned it before and I will continue to condemn it. Oyibo Chukwu was a good man. There was no political motive that could have justified his death; The elder statesman stated, “Anyone who kills is not supposed to be in government.”
