Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano has gifted the sum of one million naira to a woman for rejecting N5,000 bribe from agents to vote for a particular political party during the Anambra Governorship election.
In a viral video, the woman identified as Mrs Eunice Ngozi Onuegbusi was seen rejecting the money from persons identified as agents of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Other women in the video could be heard saying “we don’t want APC, they’ve been bad to us”.
Speaking at a Thanksgiving Mass on Thursday, Obiano said “Madam Eunice knew that though money could buy her temporary relief, Anambra would be a better place if she voted according to her conscience.
“It belongs to our loyal party men and women who resisted temptations of financial inducement from rival parties to fight under the banner of APGA because they knew that victory for APGA is a victory for the ordinary citizens of our dear state.
“And finally, it belongs to Ndi Anambra at home and in the Diaspora who stood behind APGA, not because we have met all the expectations of our people but because even in the foundation my Team and I have laid so far, they see enough sunlight to believe that Anambra State is like the sun which is bound to rise, against all odds. And that is why we won this election.”
