The Parish Priest of Blessed Iwene Tansi, Umudioka, Dunukofia Local Government Area of Anambra, Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Obidimma has condemned IPOB’s no-election campaign in Anambra State. He advised them to ensure there was no breech of peace in whatever they do, adding that they should stop the call for disintegration of the country. The priest, who had a closed door meeting with Kanu, told newsmen that he had fruitful discussion with Kanu on issues of general concern and the way forward. 

He warned Kanu on the campaign to boycott Nov. 18 Anambra governorship election. “For me, it will be more problematic to say that there won’t be any election in Anambra, it is like somebody firing gun on his toes. “Christ came into the world and reincarnated the message of peace and that was why I advised Kanu to uphold peace following the tensions everywhere in the country. Let love lead all that we do. “I advised him to do anything within his power to instill peace, even in their agitation, let there be prudence,” he said.

The priest also said that “Igbo people are clamouring for Biafra but an average Igbo man is selfish in nature, asking whether Ndigbo are matured enough to handle “our affairs.” After the meeting with the IPOB leaders, the Priest called on Kanu and his supporters, to work for peace.

The cleric expressed support for the restructuring of Nigeria, and criticised the inequity in distribution of the nation’s wealth at the detriment of some sections of the country. “In our country Nigeria, it is certain that there is marginalisation, nepotism, and tribalism. We are one Nigeria but some people are being marginalised and that is why we have all these agitations but in everything, let there be prudence as we also pray for divine intervention.”
