Obiano said:

“We advise our people to disregard the claims that the rigging of the forthcoming election in our dear state is a foregone conclusion. This is a propaganda stunt.
“They have been using the propaganda stunt to intimidate Anambra people in the last couple of years, but it has always failed them. The Anambra state of 2021 is totally different from the Anambra state of 2003 or 2007.
“The rigging plans cannot work this time. The people of Anambra state, supported by their government, are ever ready to protect their state and its impressive progress of the last few years, rather than allow soldiers of fortune and buccaneers to toy with its destiny once again.
