“Ngige joined Awolowo’s people, who killed the Igbos!” – See 10 of the most ridiculous things said at the #PDPAnambra rally yesterday

Yesterday, the entire People’s Democratic Party appeared to descend on Anambra to push the gubernatorial candidate, Tony Nwoye into winning an election many pundits think he won’t. He has been involved in litigation over who is candidate for the pasty for the past few months – and has been late to the campaign trail.

Drunk on the wine of now-possible success, the PDP bigwigs at the event – including President Goodluck Jonathan – found it a bit difficult to control their tongues. We bring you some of the statements, thanks to Premium Times, that were so bad, they’re almost unbelievable

“50 per cent of the private jets in Nigeria are owned by Anambra people” – President Goodluck Jonathan

“I told Gov. Obi to hand over to this young man,” – PDP chairman, Bamanga Tukur

“Today we have for the first time in history, a candidate from Anambra North. I’m sure that the people of Anambra North will do anything to put their son, Comrade Tony Nwoye, into the Government House come 2014” – Senator Margaret Okadigbo

“If it is not Panadol it can never be like Panadol. This is a party that is deporting your sons and daughters and demolishing their shops” – Governor of Akwa Ibom, Godswill Akpabio said.

“Mr. President, kidnapping in Anambra is a lucrative business” – Governorship candidate, Tony Nwoye

However, it was apparently PDP board of trustees member and billionaire chairman of Orient Petroleum that went on the most expansive roll:

Take 1: “For many years the orphans and widows in this state were neglected, until God brought Jonathan from a village in Otuoke. The same thing happened to Tony Nwoye, from a village called Nsugbe. They have no money,” Mr. Eze said.

Take 2: “That short man called Ngige, we gave him power and he went and joined Awolowo’s people; the people that killed the Igbos.”

Take 3: “Peter Obi, we gave him power, he did not conduct election for eight years. He was busy building mansions and marble houses everywhere.”

Take 4: “Anambra people, let us change your lives while we are still alive.”

And for good measure, he appears to be in tune with the life expectancy average in Nigeria under the leadership of his favourite president.

“”I’m 65 years,” Mr. Eze declared at the rally. “And I’ll die very soon.”

Let no one stand between an old man and his wishes.

  1. Hauwa Gambo, i wouldn't blame cos u lack wat to write! Anambra is nt hausaman business n A.p.c won't succeed dia.who r de enemies of igbo pple? leaders of a.p.c like el-rufai

  2. Seeing that they've no hope of winning, they pander to the ridiculous. #Anambra #Nigeria #Elections

  3. The fact that there will be serious earthquake soon to clear up these evil, mindless buffoons is no longer in doubt, the question is how soon. Only the lunatics like them are still listening to the kindergarten rants that makes no better sense than those lunatics at the corner of some markets.
    Its either these vultures check in for real rehabilitation on how to live again like normal, reasonable human beings, or they may be forced to remain part of insane 'Nigeria' that Biafrans will be leaving soon. It's their choice!

  4. There is nothing I hate as much as reading a dull write up. Imagine wasting precious time reading a political treatise tainted with so much bias it smacks of idiocy. What do you expect a political party to vomit during a rally? To say Ngige is the "best thing that have happened to Igboland"? Please we have better things to do than this Asiwaju Private Company APC internal memo

cool good eh love2 cute confused notgood numb disgusting fail
