Obiano Claims His Vacation to United States Was Sponsored By His Daughter

Chief Willie Obiano, a former governor of Anambra State claims that his vacation to United States was sponsored by his Daughter.

He responded to social media videos that recently went viral showing him and his family enjoying fun in America. 

The Obianos were partying on a cruise ship while on vacation with other white individuals in one of the films. The first video was captured by Obiano, while the second showed the family at their US home enjoying a huge chicken. 

Many people criticized the former governor over the video, charging that he had stolen money from the state coffers before fleeing to the US to enjoy the collective wealth of the people.  

But in a reaction to the videos, Obiano, while speaking through his publicist, Mr. Tony Nezianya, explained that the vacation was paid for by Obiano’s daughter, after he underwent intensive treatment in the US.

Explaining the video, Nezianya said: “Chief Obiano, his wife and son did travel for vacation after he received seven weeks of intensive medical treatment in the United States. 

“The trip was paid for by his daughter, a medical consultant in the United States, who was overjoyed that her 67-year-old father could undertake such heavy and exerting treatment without serious complications.” 

On the second video, Nezianya said: “The second video was recorded on July 4, 2022, the America’s Independence anniversary. Americans usually celebrate their Independence Day with rice and chicken, and Obiano’s young son seen in the video eating rice and chicken.” 

He stated that Obiano’s home in Houston, Texas, acquired before he joined partisan politics and won the governorship race of Anambra State in 2013. 

“He bought it after serving for 12 years as the Executive Director of one of Nigeria’s top five banks. All his assets in Nigeria and abroad stated in his Assets Declaration Form provided by the ICPC,” he publicist stated. 

Nezianya was obviously reacting to insinuations that Obiano may have bought the home after his tenure as Anambra State governor and with state funds.
