The Chairman of Abia Elders Consultative Forum, ArchBishop Princewill Ariwodor in a chat with Vanguard Newspaper said that the impressive performance of the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi in Saturday’s elections is due to the 'failure' of the two major political parties in the country.
Ariwodor said that people are prepared to show their bitterness if any attempt is made to subvert their will.
In his words, he said:
"The mega parties have failed the people. They have betrayed the people enough and they have no other choice than to go for a total change. So, the Labour Party provided the platform for the needed change. This is the first time people are coming out en mass to vote.
And if this was not demonstrated, politicians won’t learn their lessons. People are prepared to demonstrate more if their mandate is tampered with.
“They are prepared to show their bitterness if any attempt is made to subvert their will.”
Results are still being announced and as it stands, the Presidential Candidate of APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu is leading with a total vote of 4,105,663, followed by Atiku with 3,052,625 votes and Peter Obi with 1,640,124 votes.
