A chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Anambra State, Prince Arthur Eze, has advised those fighting against President Goodluck Jonathan to desist or face the wrath of God as his mandate was divinely ordained.
Mr. Eze made this known while speaking with State House correspondents on Tuesday shortly after he visited Mr. Jonathan at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
According to Mr. Eze, anyone who opposes the president opposes God and will perish.
His words: “… Jonathan is our brother, God gave him power and anybody fighting him is fighting God, the person will perish and I don’t want perish. He was in his village and God sent for him and gave him power”.
The Anambra-born billionaire argued that Mr. Jonathan was transforming the lives of Nigerians and called for support for the president because it is the will of God.
“Now all of us will support him, he is fighting for all you the new generation. I am an old man, I am dying and that is why you have to support him and change your life. He has started changing the lives of Nigerians, the widows, the orphans, the needy. That is the will of God”.
Mr. Eze, who solely financed the governorship ambition of the PDP candidate – Tony Nwoye – in the recently held elections in Anambra State and had accused the outgoing governor, Mr. Peter Obi, of rigging the polls in favour of eventual winner, Willie Obiano of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, pledged his support for the governor-elect.
“I am the founder of APGA. The new governor is a young man, when you look at him, very cool. We shall support him to succeed him. So all of us should vote for Jonathan”, he stressed.
