The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has placed the incumbent Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, on a watchlist, ahead of the handover of government in the state.


This was contained in a letter to the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) dated November 15, 2021.


The EFCC requested the immigration to place Governor Obiano on a watchlist and inform it anytime he is travelling out of the country from any of the international airports, as well as other points of entry and exit.


It is, however, not clear why the anti-graft agency placed the governor on a watchlist.


A report by Channels Television said that the move was an indication that the agency might have been discreetly investigating the governor and possibly had intelligence that he was planning to escape after handing over power to his successor, Professor Charles Soludo, on March 16, 2022.

In another development, a cleric, Rev. Moses O. Okoye, of Our Lord Victory Covenant Mission, worldwide,  hinted Wednesday that

Gubernatorial candidates in the just concluded Anambra State election threatening to sue the governor-elect, Prof. Charles Soludo, want financial settlement to discard

the idea .


According to him, “those that want to go to court to change the result want money. My plea to Soludo is to look around the villages and towns , they don’t have roads, electricity, water, hospitals, among others.”


“The gubernatorial candidates are making mistake forgetting that it is God that is all and all . It is God that brought Soludo to restructure the state, I didn’t say that Obiano didn’t perform but there is what God wants Soludo to do in the state and all those things will come to pass”


“His victory is not man made, it is divine, you can see it was a landslide victory such that liars are far from him going by the result,


He has travelled and worked both nationally and Internationally, let him use his wealth of experience to develop the state”


The cleric who said that he didn’t go to hospital when sick, reiterated that, “people left God for traditions because they are anxious of money, they make mistake”
