Anenih, Tukur will Bring More Calamity to PDP in 2014 – Bishop Prophecies
Chairman of the South- East chapter of CAN and the Anglican Bishop of Enugu, Rt. Rev. Dr. Emmanuel Chukwuma has predicted doom for the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, noting that except the likes of Chief Tony Anenih and Alhaji Bamanga Tukur retired from active politics, the party would face greater calamity in 2014.
He expressed dismay that the duo of Anenih and Tukur as well as other elders above 75 years had refused to heed his advice to quit active politics, noting that the present crisis facing the party would be child’s play to what would happen to the party in the coming year.
“If those elders I warned before to retire don’t retire, then the party will be in trouble in 2014. At 80, Anenih should retire; Bamangar Tukur should retire.
These people should now serve as elders and advisers; if they do that, then PDP will get its dignity back but while you still have these analogue leaders and elders in the party and the polity, forget about PDP in 2015,” he said.
He urged President Jonathan to be focused in the New Year to avoid attracting the wrath of the greater percentage of Nigerians, noting that since the buck stops at his table, all blame of every failing in his government would be completely laid at his doorstep.
Chukwuma said: “The letter between Obasanjo and Jonathan is a boomerang of Obasanjo’s selfish act in enthroning a president of his choice for Nigeria.
There are many better leaders out there than Jonathan who would have been elected but Obasanjo selfishly, because of the people he think he could control, maneuvered Jonathan into leadership by first putting sick Yar’Adua. Because, he couldn’t control him anymore, he started writing letters.
“That is why Jonathan must be focused in 2014 in order to prove himself for 2015.
Failure to do that and he gets distracted and doesn’t prove himself, and Nigeria continues with the way it is today with corruption, no light, poverty, unemployment, I beg him, he should just step aside, let us seek for a better leader in 2015.
He has tried in the last six years, and rather than the thing getting him into trouble, and cause him more tension, I think Nigeria is greater than everybody, all of them should give way and give room for new spirit to rule Nigeria from 2015,” he said.
While urging politicians to eschew violence and bitterness as the nation prepares for a major election in order not to mar the 2015 elections, Bishop Chukwuma called on Nigerians to be more faithful to God, pursue peace and righteousness.
“We should all work dedicatedly for the unity and peace of this nation as we celebrate our century. Any attempt by anybody to fuel violence or confusion will call for the review of our amalgamation,” he said.
He therefore commended Nigerians and security operatives for the peaceful atmosphere that prevailed throughout the Christmas and New Year celebrations and prayed that the year 2014 will bring more blessings and progress for the country.
