Obi who lamented the level of decay in the country in terms of infrastructure, absence of employment for the youth, lawlessness and recklessness in high places, mounting foreign and local debt, bitting tax regime, incompetence, among others said that any further tolerance of the present state of affairs would see the country collapse.
Counting the number of generators in one of the markets, Obi asked rhetorically: ” How Long will our economy be a one powered by generators?” He promised that Alhaji Abubakar Atiku, having come out with detailed work plan would place the country on track again to continue her truncated democratic and economic development.
This is coming as hundreds of thousands of Catholic Church members under the auspices of Catholic Laity Council in South East and South-South have endorsed the aspiration of People’s Democratic Party’s candidate in this week’s General elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his running mate , Mr Peter Obi.
The endorsement came while Peter Obi and his supporters led by Chairman of Atiku-Obi Presidential Campaign Council in Anambra , Oseloka Obaze and Director General of PDP Campaign Council in Anambra state , Dr Harry Oranezi were on a road show through Madonna Catholic Church , Agulu, Anaocha council area of Anambra state.
According to a former President of the Onitsha Province who coordinated the Catholic Laity, Dr Fidelis Aghamelu, the Laity council came from Onitsha Province, Owerri Province and Calabar province to endorse Atiku and Obi.
Dr Aghamelu said the Laity Council from the Provinces unanimously and unequivocally endorsed Atiku/Obi joint ticket after a thorough review of things an saw that the pair of Atiku and Obi are destined to rescue Nigeria rom the present agony.
He said Nigeria is heading to the precipice with President Buhari and Prof Osibanjo at the helm of affairs, hence they discovered that the destiny of our people is dangerously been castrated by the Buhari administration.
He decried the public policies and programmes of the Buhari led administration clearly indicate a very dangerous phenomenon of the existing government tilting in favour of Islam.
He insisted that the Laity council would mobilize all Christians particularly Laity members to vote Atiku/Obi in next week’s election without any form of apathy. Huge crowds greet Obi, others during PDP’s road show in Anambra
