2023: Peter Obi introduced religious, ethnic politics in Nigeria – Chimaroke Nnamani


Thirty-six days after the Presidential and National Assembly
elections, Chairman, Senate Committee on Cooperation and Integration in Africa/
NEPAD, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, Enugu East 
has taken a swipe at the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party,
Peter Obi, alleging that he introduced 
religious and ethnic politics in Nigeria.


In a statement on Sunday, the former Enugu State Governor
said that reviewing the activities of 
the just concluded elections,  he
came to a conclusion that “Peter Obi deflowered the virgin innocence of
political patriotism and nationalism in Nigeria.


 “He fed our people
with the sacred apple and Nigeria may never be the same again”.


Nnamani lamented, “What was in whispers and Hush-hush
tones,  Peter proclaimed loud in decibels
in Cathedrals and Holy Sepulchers.


“The Roman Catholic dominant politics Peter  mastered and foisted on Anambra people when
he was a Governor was a prelude to his nationwide campaigns.


He alleged that: “the 
Roman Catholic Family Trinity of Mary, Joseph and Jesus, was what
Peter  spread  ecumenically across the Faith landscape as
the Labour Party Symbol of Father, Mother and Child.”


Nnamani who noted that Peter’s Religious war in garbs of
Labour Party politics were nationalized and universalized for all Christian
dominations amongst Nigerians home and abroad. “Peter  proselytized do not vote for me because I am
a Christian”  but ” the  code was clear and  its subliminal assimilation final.


 “For his ethnic war,
he  spread across Igbo domiciled areas
across Nigeria, specifically  Markets and
Shopping Malls. He picked out Christian minority areas for his campaigns in
Northern and Central Nigeria. His Dual opium of Tribalism and Religious Bigotry
have made National Landing to depart no more.”


The statement further stated, “Recall that an Enugu Catholic
Priest Rev Father Ejike Mbaka of Adoration crusade has publicly apologized for
the partisan role the church played during the elections.


“Rev Fr Mbaka  said:
“The world should hear me, I’m using my name as a reverend father, a prophet
and a messenger of God to apologize on behalf of the whole men of God; pastors,
priests and  Bishops. I’m not worthy to
apologize for Bishops but I’m apologizing, let the mercy of God descend because
what we did within this political moment, a lot of indescribable political
brouhaha and political  jingoism and a
lot of atrocities we manifested by burying the power of the sacrament beneath
political forces, political huffs and vultures, and they want to “vulturise”
the church.


” We turned the church into campaign centres, we turned the
church into a place of politicking, we messed up the alter, we defiled the
alter of the most high God.


“We offended God and we started teaching the people in
church where to vote and how they will do it.


“Where they drew humans the church said it’s the father, the
son and the holy spirit (the three trinity in one God). Lots of blunders that
were made by taking the glory of God and giving it to mortals.


” I’m pleading for the mercy of God , I pray that God will
forgive us for we have gotten it wrong this time.”
