Anambra Poll: Calls For ‘No Election’ Stupid, Illogical – UPP National Leader, Chekwas Okorie

Published

Chekwa Okorie

National Chairman of the United Progressives Party, UPP, Chekwas Okorie, has berated those asking residents of Anambra State not to participate in the November governorship election in the state.

Okorie noted that the call for “no election” in Anambra and the South East is illogical and “stupid.”

Addressing newsmen in Awka, the state capital on Wednesday, Okorie said there were no articulated and acceptable reasons for insisting that election must not hold in the state and the region in general.

Okorie also noted that the Federal Government cannot agree to referendum in the South East because it’s not contained in the constitution.

He said, “To think that some young people, some of them educated are campaigning against Igbo participation in an election is unfortunate.

“Moreover, the reason for non participation has not being articulated by anyone of them, there is no reason they have given that makes sense at all.

“Saying that you want referendum and that government should give you referendum is so pedestrian an argument.

“Government cannot give you referendum because it does not exist in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria where we belong.

“The only way you can go about it is to participate in democracy, elect a government that can pursue your wishes and aspirations.

“It is a stupid thing to say that there will be no election in Anambra.”

    You see! He’s not a leader yet, but he has already started insulting the people he wants to rule.
    How’s that democracy?

    Anyways I’m ok been called whatever name by these money mongers called politician.
    The only thing I wouldn’t do is to make their words true.
    A terrorist like me don’t have the right to vote.
    An imbecile or stupid person like me don’t; know how to vote or have a clue about elections.

    So i urge all Nigerian Politicians in the BIAFRA region to march out their families and relations to vote for them if they are not among the so called terrorist (Indigenous People of Biafra, Biafra) !

    We are first the Indigenous People of BIAFRA before Nigeria came.

David Umahi - Chairman South East Governors Forum

Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi on Friday assured Godwin Obaseki will be re-elected Governor of Edo state.

He said nothing will stop the Governor’s re-election because he has done well and deserves to continue in office.

Obaseki is a member of the All Progressive Congress(APC) while Umahi is a member of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Umahi was addressing Obaseki’s wife, Betsy and other Southern Governors’ Wife’s who were on a courtesy call to him in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State Capital.

The Governor’s Wives were in the state for the Southern Nigeria Governors’ Wifes’ Forum quarterly meeting.

Umahi said: “Power belongs to God and no matter what anybody will dot is God that has the final say and I can assure you Ma, you know as an apostle of the most high God I also prophesy . And because of the good work your husband is doing for the people of Edo State no man can unseat him.

“Power belongs to God and no matter what anybody will do, it is God that has the final say and I can assure you ma, you know as an apostle of the most high God I also prophesy. And because of the good
work your husband is doing for the people of Edo state, no man can
unset him.

“I made this statement so that the glory of God will become larger. It happened here in Ebonyi.

”I have a testimony of what God can do. Even in our NEC meeting, when Obaseki speaks, you see Economics.

“You see a man that came from private sector background. And so, we can’t wish that away. So, congratulations to you in advance and to all of us.

“You know the Governors; we have so many elections. First is the primary, second one is the poll, then the third one is the tribunal. Then another one is the appeal and then the election of the elections is the supreme court.

“So, it is not an easy thing and if the hand of God is not upon you, you can’t scale through all these hurdles. And so, it is God who has brought all of us to leadership and I say double congratulations to all of us”.

S/Court Judgement: Mysterious Owl Attacks Gov Ortom Inside Church

Published

on

Shortly after the Supreme Court of Nigeria affirmed the election of Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, he was unexpectedly attacked at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Makurdi, by a mysterious owl.

According to Daily Post, Ortom was in the church for a special thanksgiving service, when the strange bird attacked.

An eyewitness, Prince Tordue Abe, narrated how the bird, on Tuesday night, found its way into the Church, the exact time the Governor was giving his testimonies and went straight to the altar where Ortom was kneeling down for his testimonies.

But for the prompt efforts of some youths, the night bird, which is superstitiously believed to be a witchcraft bird, would have landed on the Governor’s head.

“It happened few minutes ago while the Governor was on his kneels praying at the Redeemed Christian Church Makurdi.

“An Owl flew in and headed right towards the direction of the Governor. On sighting the Governor the owl bowed before the Governor and together we rushed and killed it.

“Whatever it was they planned against the Governor, the Holy Spirit brought it to a halt.

“Indeed Governor Ortom is not just a man of God but a powerful man of God,” Abe said.

The apex court had on Tuesday delivered judgement in an appeal brought before it by Barr. Emmanuel Jime of the All Progressive Congress (APC), challenging the decision of the Court of Appeal to have upheld the election of Ortom, who contested under the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in the March 9, 2019 guber election in Benue.

In a 30-second judgement delivered by Justice Sylvester Ngwuata, the Supreme Court reaffirmed the victory of Governor Ortom, saying, “The judgement of the Tribunal and Court of Appeal need not to be disturbed”.
