REPORT: How Anambra state governor, Obiano, bribed INEC official with $4m(N2.3bn)

Anambra state governor, willie Obiano and a top national official of the Independent National Electoral Commission have been exposed for a bribe of  over a princely sum of $4 million doled out by the governor as  to compromise the November 6 gubernatorial election in Anambra State.

INTEL REGION, understands through saturday Vanguard that the desperate governor, who wants   to install his preferred candidate, used the top electoral body official to pass the bribe so as to get his wish actualised.

The huge cash, Saturday Vanguard leant, has already been handed over to the targeted beneficiaries by the official, who is described as controlling a vital organ in INEC but it was not clear if the leadership of the commission was aware of the development as at last night.

While the embattled governor is said to be trying to reach key national players in INEC to compromise the vote in his favour, the wife of the politician, who is described as ‘an influential and powerful first lady in the Southeast, is reported to have been meeting secretly with many electoral officers, Eos, who are key to the forthcoming election.

“The woman has been holding regular meetings with Electoral Officers, who man the local government offices in the state and has told them her expectations regarding the election,” a top security official privy to the deal, told Saturday Vanguard.

While the security agencies may not be in a hurry to move against the governor, because of his immunity,  there were indications last night that they might go after the top INEC official even before the polls.

“The evidence against the governor’s breach of    his oath of office and public trust is strong but he is still protected under the immunity clause but we will see what happens once his immunity elapses,” the top source said. He declined to give further details.

It is still cloudy as at the time of filing this report, what will happen and the decisions the government will take in the response to the expository report by journalists
