Why I attended Dunamis church – Peter Obi
Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi has explained why he attended Dunamis International Gospel Centre on Friday.
Obi explained that he attended Dunamis church to fellowship and thank God.
He disclosed this while posting images of him at the church’s Mid-Year praise and worship night.
Recall that the former Anambra State governor’s presence was heralded by a large ovation from members of the church.
During the service, Enenche had called the political leaders to the altar and asked them to say some words over Nigeria.
The Senior Pastor of the church, Paul Enenche, had invited Obi, the wife of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential running mate,. Ifeanyi Okowa, Edith; Governor Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom State among other political leaders in the country.
However, Obi in a tweet wrote: “I spent an uplifting and exhilarating 8 hours of fellowship amongst fellow Nigerians @DunamisGospel 2022 Mid Year Praise and Worship, with @DrPaulEnenche, his family and other dignitaries.
“I used that auspicious occasion to thank God.”
Recaled the former governor clinched the Labour Party’s ticket barely a week after he announced his resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as well as his withdrawal from the primary election of the main opposition party.
In a letter dated May 24, 2022, he lamented that the recent developments within the PDP have made it practically impossible for him to continue participating and making constructive contributions to national development.
According to Obi, the nation’s challenges are deep-seated and require profound sacrifices towards rescuing the country.
He informed the PDP leadership that he had conveyed his resignation to the Chairman of Agulu Ward 2, his ward in Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State.
Three days after his resignation, the former governor pitched his tent with the Labour Party, in his bid to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
He, however, advised his supporters to imbibe the spirit of sportsmanship and avoid name-calling or personal attacks on other aspirants and candidates.
The common goal, according to the presidential candidate, should be to make Nigeria better and elections do not need to be confrontational for a winner to emerge.
