Anambra Guber: Thousands Of Worshipers Reject Peter Obi, Willie Obiano
It is yet another massive rejection for Mr Peter Obi and his stooge, Mr Willie Obiano as a massive congregation numbering around 10,000 persons gathered in a night Vigil at St Dominic’s Catholic Church Uke, Idemili North LGA of Anambra State roundly rejected his plea to vote for Obinao an instead shouted ‘Onwa Onwa Onwa.’(Title for Senator Chris Ngige)
The governor arrived the church at around 12.30 am and was given the audience to address the congregation gathered from all nooks and crannies of Nigeria for an all-night vigil, after the first mass, but shouts of ‘No! No!! No!!! literally tore the air.
It took pleas from the presiding Rev Father, Emma Obimma (Fada Ebube Mo nso) to allow a moment of audience to the soft-spoken governor who apparently to buy silence began his speech with a donation of N5million on behalf of the State government.
However, when the governor raised the issue of voting for Obiano, pandemonium nearly broke out as people shouted and knocked on chairs and any hard object within reach, while shouting down the governor . This continued unabated until Rev Fr Obimma took the microphone.
Obiano was involved in a woeful performance in the final debates between governors, where he declined a viewpoint on the issue of immunity clause to the office of the governor as contained din the 1999 Constitution as amended, confessing that he was ignorant of the provision’.
The debates viewed on television around the world were fresh in everyone’s mind when the latest rejection incident took place in the wee hours of today.
Before now, Obiano had been rejected in all Onitsha Markets, Awka markets and scores of crowd-pulling events, sending signals. Traders are angry that Obi tried to exclude political opponents from campaigning in the markets, only to flout the same rule.
Rev Fr Obimma in his speech said ‘I had told Gov Peter Obi that my church is not a place for campaign, but we allowed him to speak to you as a governor’.
Relating back to the constitution Rev Fr Obimma asked ‘If you say you do not want my brother here who was brought by the governor (pointing at Obiano) ,,Who do you want?’ For an answer he got a thunderous ‘Onwaaaaaaa!’
The development made the governor and his entourage skip addressing the seocnd mass and quietly dissolve into the congregation..
But while leaving this morning the crowd continued to boo the governor and his campaign entourage, hauling sachets water and other soft items within reach at them as they scampered out to their vehicles.
An eye witness, Mrs Virgy Ibemeka who claimed to have been part of the booing said this morning ’ Apart from the fact that there is no comparison between Ngige and Obiano,the bigger problem is but that this government (Anambra State government) think they can force people to vote for their anointed candidate by removing posters and billboards of Ngige’
‘This is why most people who attended the church yesterday were not happy with the team, otherwise, there is nothing too difficult about listening to their message. Obiano was hand-picked by Gov Peter Obi after shoving aside all credible aspirants in APGA, through guided disqualification ,acting in cahoots with Chief Victor Umeh,
National Chairman of APGA whose written agreement to receive N5.76 billion from Obiano for his co-operation in is in circulation in the state, in a deal in which Obi’s interest is believed to be covered in proxy..
