Actor Yul Edochie says that people were crying when it dawned on them that Gov Obiano was leaving office on March 17. Obiano completed his eight years in office on March 17 and handed over to his successor, Charles Soludo.
In a post shared on his Instagram page on Saturday, March 19, Yul who served as the Senior Special Assistant to the former governor on Creative and Entertainment Media, wrote
”People were crying at the inauguration when it dawned on them that Chief Willie Obiano was leaving office.
The moment he came down from his car, many people started crying, hailing him and saying good things about him and how they would miss him in office.
Such things only happen when good men are leaving office and I can boldly tell you that Chief Willie Obiano is a good man.
Sadly the negative events that occurred on the inauguration day have overshadowed other remarkable things that happened on the same day.
Of course bad news always flies faster than good news.
While I was SSA I spent a lot of close moments with him.
Akpokue Dike is a good man who did his best for Anambra.
A youth friendly Governor who gave lots and lots of opportunities to the youths.
A jolly good man who welcomed all.
Always jovial and welcoming and ready to do all he can to build Anambra.
A man who had a gentlemanly agreement with the new Governor Prof. Charles Soludo in 2017 and even after 5yrs he still kept his word.
Unfortunately in life, many people who are not close to you will always have bad things to say about you.
What I witnessed on the inauguration day was exactly same feeling that occurred all across Nigeria when we lost President Umaru Musa Yaradua.
We all felt the exit of a good man.
As we call him.
I wish you the very best Sir as you move on to more greatness.
May God be with you always.”
