Nigeria: 2023 – Beware of Peter Obi, Christian Youth Group Tells Nigerians
The United Christian Youth Forum of Nigeria (UCYFN) has warned Nigerians to beware of the antics of Labor Party presidential candidate Mr Peter Obi, saying the former governor of Anambra State is not what he claimed to be.
At a press conference in Abuja on Friday, the group led by Bro. Peterson A Daniels as President accused Obi of using religion to deceive his followers and other unsuspecting Nigerians.
“You, like other Nigerians, have been assaulted by footage of the visit of the Labor Party (LP) Presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, to Edo State as part of his campaign for the election presidential election in 2023. This visit was marked by Mr Obi making a pit stop at a night vigil and Catholic mass, where he was seen kneeling to receive prayers from clergy in a series of photographs that have gone viral .
“Prior to the start of the campaign, Mr. Obi became a prominent feature of Christian worship centers across the country, through agreements brokered with the overseers of these participating congregations by his agents. These visits to Pentecostal and Protestant worshipers have been made to trend in the media and social media, ostensibly to portray the LP contestant as a God-fearing person.
“Sadly, we are compelled to make this intervention today to alert Nigerians against being misled into endorsing the devil’s representative as their next president. The charismatic and religious fervor that Mr. Obi has displayed since the emergence of the LP candidate is nothing more than a facade to hide his true identity: an irredeemable Catholic fanatic who has perverted the faith in a way that should have earned him excommunication for making Catholicism appear as a cult,” Daniels said.
They further accused Obi of hatred towards non-Catholics and Nigerians of other faiths, stating that the LP presidential candidate was not fit to be the next President of Nigeria in 2023.
“In conclusion, the United Christian Youth Forum of Nigeria hereby warns Nigerians to beware of the Labor Party presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, who has assured his internal circuit that he would lead a Catholic government if elected. President by mistake.
“He will exclude Pentecostals, Protestants, Muslims, animists, agnostics and atheists from accessing the dividends of democracy as if they were not human. Yet our Christian teaching is to mistreat no one because of these differences. The task that Christ has given us is to witness to the world, which is the best way to bring them into our fold as opposed to the bigoted bigotry of Mr. Obi,” he added.
Meanwhile, LEADERSHIP’s attempts to get the LP presidential candidate to react to the allegations against him proved abortive as several phone calls and text messages sent to Dr. Yunusa Tanko, chief spokesperson for the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC ) of the LP by our correspondent, went unanswered because at press time.
