Peter Obi: You can play God but you can never be God, Chinedu Ikedieze tells Mbaka
Actor Chinedu Ikedieze has condemned Enugu-based Catholic priest Rev. Fr Ejike Mbaka’s statement about presidential aspirant Peter Obi.
Qed.ng reported that the cleric said the former Anambra State governor cannot be Nigeria’s president because he is a stingy person.
“It is better to have a president who is a gifted old man than a stingy young man,” the cleric said about Obi on Wednesday at his ministry’s gathering in Enugu.
Reacting to the statement in an Instagram post on Thursday, Chinedu Ikedieze noted that he was surprised Mbaka would make such an ‘unreaonsable misguied statement’ about Mr Obi.
TheAki na Pawpawactor added that Mbaka can assumed the role of God but he can never be God.”
He wrote: “You see why it is diffcult to put Nigeria on the global pedestal. I’m surpiresd to see that the suposedly revered people, mightily known and respected wpould make unreaonbale misguied statement such as this. Thats not fair. You can play God but you can never be God.”
Weighing in on the matter, actor Junior Pope Odonwodo wrote: “Let PETER OBI be stingy and let the land and economy heal, recover, rejuvenate………only lazy people would want to wait for free chops, free food, free money…… NIGERIANS are hard-working people, create a healthy working environment and see the prosper, and progress.
“Just imagine Nigeria at the moment, A country that provides nothing to her citizens (basic amenities) and yet see how NIGERIANS are surviving……. Now close your eyes and imagine what will happen when the government gives us STEADY POWER SUPPLY, SECURITY, WATER, GOOD ROADS etc.
Other supporters stated that the attribute of stinginess assures them that Obi will not give bribes. Others have also posted photos of Obi donating funds to schools in the south-east to show Mbaka’s claims are false.
