Anglican Diocese of Aguata in Anambra State has asked the state governor, Willie Obiano to tender an unreserved apology to Ndigbo for betraying them by supporting President Muhammadu Buhari’s reelection during the electioneering campaign.
The church said that the insult the governor gave the National President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief John Nnia Nwodo, in the run-up to the last general elections, is a betrayal to the entire Igbo race.
These were contained in the Bishops Charge presented on Friday by Rt. Rev. Samuel Ezeofor at the 2nd Session of the Fifth Synod of Diocese of Aguata holding at St James Anglican Church Uga, Aguata Local Government Area of the State.
The church described Obiano’s betrayal as an insult which inflicted a deep wound on Igbo people.
“The insult Chief Willie Obiano laid on President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Chief John Nnia Nwodo was a betrayal of the highest order, a betrayal of the whole Igbo people, a betrayal of his own people.
“It was an insult on the whole of Igbo race and we call on him, His Excellency Chief Willie Obiano to apologize to Ndigbo.
“We do not know how Governor Obiano can explain the stance he took but may it please him to know that he wounded us so deep in his bid to stop his benefactor Sir Peter Obi.
“We also need to let the Governor know that we are not unaware of his moves against the Anglican faithful in Anambra State.”
Chancellor of the Diocese, Justice Pete Obiora commended the Bishop for his analysis of the society and courage to say things the way they were.
