Prince Arthur Eze, a businessman from Anambra state, has been urged by the Labour Party to give up some of his wealth-creating potential in exchange for supporting Mr. Peter Obi’s bid for president of Nigeria.
The party claimed that Obi, its presidential candidate, is amazing, an idea that is driven by supernatural occurrences and spontaneous human activity.
The party said that amid the current cacophony of Obi’s endorsements, it is signaling to everyone who matters that Nigeria’s next president will not be chosen by a small, exclusive group or the dictator’s world.
It specifically urged Chief Arthur Eze, Governor Chukwuma Soludo, and anybody else attempting to defy Obi’s divine mandate to think twice.
Innocent Okeke, the vice-chairman for the South East region of the Labour Party, stated that while the party respects each person’s right to their own beliefs, including those of Arthur Eze and others who hold opposing views, it cannot tolerate intimidation or aggressive outbursts.
It was stated that there would never be “business as usual” in the new Nigeria and suggested that the sooner people started adapting, the better since it had previously been a nation where the extremely wealthy few and the extremely poor masses had destroyed the middle class and turned the poor masses into common slaves.
“If our highly respected Chief Arthur Eze should go by his adopted name ‘Ozoigbondu,’ I would have expected him to feel pain when his people are feeling it. The pain in the present Nigeria is a general one and everyon is crying for a genuine change.
“We can understand his personal business interests and effort to remain big, but he has been big from youth till this age, it’s time to feel the pain of others and sacrifice luxury for a better future.
“Peter Gregory Obi is an Anambrarian just like some of you, what matters is the general opinion of the people of Anambra on Peter Obi’s presidential ambition and not the opinion of two or three persons. In this recent time all the presidential opinion pools conducted has put Obi well above other contenders and this is the opinion of Nigerians.
“If not the old thinking of many of you with deep pockets who have amassed wealth to seek option of rigging elections, the voice and opinions of the masses will reign supreme.
“I advise for no insult, keep your opinion to yourself, don’t destabilise the system. Allow a new Nigeria to emerge it will benefit your kindred, community, your state and all Nigerians,” Okeke advised.
