Count down from when ex-Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has been taken in to the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), it is today seven days.

Although the ex-governor had been granted bail few hours after arrest, he could not leave captivity for one basic reason: not being able to meet his bail conditions, which pundits describe as stringent.

Bail conditions:

i. A Senator from his State. (A very difficult situation for him, since he is known not to be in good terms with all the three Senators from Anambra State. Is it Uche Ekwunife (PDP Anambra Central)? Nay! Is it Ifeanyi Ubah (YPP Anambra South)? Nay! It is a common knowledge his wife, Osodieme Ebelechukwu, wouldn’t have the face to seek for their intervention. Or do we turn up to Stella Oduah (PDP Anambra North)? Absolutely nay, judging from her misgivings against Obiano’s wife in trying to disgrace Mrs Bianca Ojukwu, widow of the acclaimed Igbo leader, Dim Ikemba Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, recently, among other things.

ii. Two Directors from Federal Ministry with landed property in Abuja. (Yet another difficult condition, since no director of the Ministries, Departments and Agencies of APC-controlled federal  government would likely want to stick out his/her neck for an APGA chieftain.

Who will then bell the cat? Abuja newsmen tried to prove their mettle on Monday, March 21. At a recent event on the sideline of the 5th Annual General Assembly (AGA) meeting of the Network of National Anti-coruption Institutions  in West Africa (NACIWA), at Transcorp Hilton, Abuja, they asked the EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, why Obiano was still in custody against the stipulations of the Habeas Corpus Act, and he insisted: “we have done our bit by granting him bail. We are only waiting for him to perfect his bail conditions, and everything is going well.”

Perhaps, Ebele Obiano should now go cap in hands trying to mellow the minds of all the Anambra senators as well as political big wigs she may have offended, knowingly or unknowingly. This is the time to convert her physical powers of public altercation to “please forgive me in any way I have offended you.” Nothing is too much! Or as Yoruba would say:  “Ejoo, dariji.”/SHARE THIS
