N2bn largesse: ‘Pastor’ opens up on petition against Obi

The alleged author of a controversial petition against Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party, one Pastor Frank Onwumere, has denied knowledge of the letter, stressing that he had never had any meeting with the former Anambra State governor before.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that a certain petition doing the rounds on social media claimed that Obi gave N2 billion to churches through the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to help mobilise their congregation to vote for him in the 2023 election.

But reacting to the allegation, Onwumere said his “enemies” are behind the forgery.

“I don’t know anything about it (petition),” Punch quotes him as saying.

“I have traversed the whole of Imo State without finding the person behind it. I don’t even own a church. I have never met Peter Obi before.

“Apart from seeing Obi on television screen, I have never had any private meeting with Peter Obi before.

“I will address a press conference on Monday (today) to address this issue. My enemies are behind this forgery of my name and phone number.”
