2023: Drama as crowd boo Umeh, Peter Obi of Enugu
Reports have confirmed the uproar in some parts of Enugu State as Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Mr. Peter Obi and Senator Victor Umeh were booed out of a function in the state.
An eyewitness reporter gave an account that the group, who spotted Senator Victor Umeh’s presence around Peter Obi booed them out of an arena; save for the help of security operatives who guided the former APGA National Chairman, Umeh and Labour Presidential Candidate out, the group would have harmed the duo.
The group warned that Peter Obi will not be allowed to continue his campaign of calumny, deceit, betrayal, and treachery against other Igbo sons and daughters in Enugu State and with the character of Victor Umeh in his team, who collected millions, if not billions, from Enugu indigenes in return for APGA tickets, only to defraud them.
They warned Ndi Enugu to be wary of the return of Peter Obi and Victor Umeh together again after their ugly past in APGA and Anambra State, where they chased Chief Chekwas Okorie out of the APGA party he founded.
According to our reporter, the group had accused Peter Obi of sending his supporters to attack two prominent Enugu sons, Distinguished Senator Ike Ekweremadu and Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka and had not gone to visit the suspended Catholic priest whom his supporters have been attacking unabatedly.
They asked Ndi Enugu to be careful not to be used as willing tools and that Peter Obi and Victor Umeh should leave Enugu and return to Anambra State.
“The sudden reunion of Peter Obi and Victor Umeh is a threat to our peace in Enugu State.” They have started again with their deceitful politics of exclusion and denomination.
Victor Umeh, a Knight of the Catholic Church and from Anambra, was the National Chairman of APGA when Peter Obi, a Knight of the same Catholic Church was the Governor. Yet Umeh still went ahead to install another Catholic from Anambra, Chief Victor Oye, as National Chairman of APGA.
How can an acclaimed NATIONAL PARTY like APGA be comfortable with National Chairmen from Anambra State alone? This was a bad political precedent set by Umeh and Peter Obi.
Umeh and Peter Obi made APGA their Anambra Central affairs and revolted against Anglicans becoming Anambra State Governors under the party.
They have regrouped again in the Labour Party and want to test their evil experiment in Enugu, a relatively peaceful state. We are aware that Peter Obi is not contesting for President in 2023 because he can not get the constitutionally required spread. Instead, he intends to use vulnerable Igbos to build his Labour Party to take over Anambra from Professor Charles Soludo having seen that himself and Umeh have lost their stake in Anambra State politics.
The game plan is for the next gubernatorial election in Anambra State and not the presidency. Ndi Enugu must be careful in dealing with these two dubious characters who want to use Enugu to fight for Anambra State.”
The group also accused Peter Obi of spending millions on the Labour Party in Anambra State and using “No shishi” to deceive the people of Enugu State and set them on a collision course with their people.
If Peter Obi can accept to reunite with Victor Umeh after what the latter has said against him in recent times, it’s evident enough that Peter’s integrity should be questioned.
The lies he goes around telling innocent people should not be believed because he lacks character and firmness. He can sell anyone out for his own selfish interests, just like he is on a vendetta mission against the few perceived political enemies in the PDP; the same those who stood firm for him as the party’s Vice Presidential Candidate in 2019.
Peter Obi’s only intention in 2023 is to attack and decimate Igbo sons and daughters and use the vulnerable ones to launch his way back to fight for Anambra State.
According to an insider source, Umeh is on his way back to Anambra State from Enugu after the Boos and chase of him and Peter Obi by angry youths.
