By Kamsi Anayo

Traders on Thursday prevented the immediate past Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, and his wife Ebelechukwu, who is contesting for the Anambra North Senatorial District seat under the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) from campaigning at the Main Market, Onitsha.

The traders chanted Peter Obi solidarity songs to receive the immediate past Governor of the State, and his wife Ebelechukwu.

Obiano, in company of his wife and her campaign team, had visited the market to campaign for vote in the coming National Assembly election slated for Feb. 25.

The former governor who started by chanting APGA slogan in order to clear the air for his address, was greeted with the chants of Obi, Obi, Obi… by the traders who did not want him to speak.

As he made efforts to sing his popular APGA song (Ebee ka unu no? APGAAA!!!), the traders intensified their chants for Obi with some telling them to leave the market as they were not wanted, as others shouted on top of their voices.

Disturbed by the development, Obiano who was standing in the midst of the traders with his wife, quickly suspended his speech and made for his seat.

The former governor, Obiano later departed the scene waving his horsetail in his usual manner at the crowd who were busy chanting Obi.
