2023 Election: Electorates More Important than Structures – Umeh



By Praise Chinecherem

The Labour Party (LP) Candidate for Anambra Central Senatorial District in the 2023 General Elections, Senator Victor Umeh, has described electorates as most important elements in the forthcoming general elections.

Umeh who was reacting to alleged LP’s lack of structure across the country shortly after Thanksgiving service of Archbishop Alexander Ibezim in Awka, said the outcome of the election would be determined by the average voter and not structures.

He said, “Structures remains the voters. What is most important in the election is the voter, not those who wish you to win. You can have structure and still fail. Osun governor has structures and still failed. That’s the power of the electorate.”

Describing the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi as a sign from God, Umeh said Nigerians should take the sign very seriously in order to enjoy prosperity.

He added, “Peter Obi is annointing from God. It’s like when God showed the three wise men where Jesus was kept in a manger through appearance of a star which they followed to Bethlehem and found him.

“Anywhere Peter Obi crosses in Nigeria, God will tell the people, look at the one you’re looking for. It’s of God and a sign from God which we must take very seriously. That’s he has a mission to accomplish.

“This applause you heard here today in his absence, you can imagine what would have happened if he was to be present in church. 

“Everywhere he goes to, not only in church, the applause is always alarming. God is saying something, that here’s the one that will lead you to prosperity. Even those who don’t know him will always want to identify with him. 

“Nobody is campaigning for him. Have you seen Peter Obi address any rally? Campaign has to do with rallies. He has never gathered people to talk to them. Instead, what he does is delivering lectures and conferences.

“That people shout anywhere his name is mentioned doesn’t translate to campaign, but a recognition. He’s never told anyone to vote for him.”
