Former Enugu Governor Senator Chimaroke Nnamani has criticised the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi, for reigniting religious and ethnic politics in Nigeria.

Reviewing the activities of the just concluded elections, Nnamani in a statement in Abuja said: “Peter Obi deflowered the virgin innocence of political patriotism and nationalism in Nigeria.

“He fed our people with the sacred apple and Nigeria may never be the same again.”

The Enugu East Senator lamented: “What was in whispers and hush tones, Peter proclaimed loud in decibels in Cathedrals and Holy Sepulchres.

“The Roman Catholic dominant politics Peter mastered and foisted on Anambra people when he was a Governor was a prelude to his nation wide campaigns.

“The Roman Catholic’s Family Trinity of Mary, Joseph and Jesus, was what Peter spread ecumenically across the Faith landscape as the Labour Party’s symbol of Father, Mother and Child.”

He also stated that Peter’s religious war in garbs of Labour Party politics were nationalized and universalized for all Christian dominations among Nigerians home and abroad.

According to him, Peter proselytized: “Do not vote for me because I am a Christian” but “the code was clear and its subliminal assimilation final.”

He added: “For his ethnic war, he spread across Igbo domiciled areas across Nigeria, specifically markets and shopping malls.

“He picked out Christian minority areas for his campaigns in Northern and Central Nigeria. His dual opium of tribalism and religious bigotry have made national landing to depart no more.”
