Ahead of the 2023 general elections, a renowned Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Nigeria, Enugu Ecclesiastical Province, Most Revd. Dr. E.O Chukwuma, has lashed out at the candidates and supporters of the Labour Party in Nigeria, saying Enugu State people would never be part of their controversial “Obidients” mantra.
According to report, Archbishop Chukwuma who said this on Thursday, at Eziokwe village, Ndiagu Akpugo, Nkanu-West local government area of Enugu State, during the burial ceremony of a former military administrator of Osun and Abia States, Col. Anthony Obi (rtd), stressed that political parties should refine their paths with people-oriented programmes that could lift the country out of poverty.
“Let me say this in clear terms: we are not Obidient in Enugu State, and we’ll never be. The people of the State are under an umbrella and better off with the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP). Our people should vote for the PDP in Enugu State. The parties in Nigeria must go and refine themselves and prepare for a better Nigeria”.
