The statement read in part:
“And so, for those who still deride and mock governor Obiano for his foresight in the last presidential election, those who wilfully seek cheap opportunities to laugh at him, it might be worthwhile to always remember; that even the Scriptures warned us in First Corinthians chapter one verse twenty-seven, that sometimes, “God uses the foolish things of this world to confound the wise.”
As you may know, Willie Obiano is a member of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), but in the build up to the presidential election, he has maintained close ties with President Buhari, undermining the fact that his party, APGA, has a presidential candidate.
On January 10, 2019 Obiano campaigned for President Buhari, stating that he has done for the South East and South South.
Meanwhile, on January 13, Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, cautioned Obiano, asking him to cease campaigning for President Muhammadu Buhari.
