Pastor Anselm Madubuko
Apostolic leader and founder of Revival Assembly Ministries International, Anselm Madubuko has reacted to former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu’s statement about South-East voting for Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party and not Labour Party’s Peter Obi during the 2023 Presidential elections.
The lawmaker from Enugu state who acknowledged that Peter Obi is a credible candidate and “their son”, had said that the South-East needs to be dynamic and also know that Obi who is a former Governor of Anambra state can’t win the presidential election.
He averred that people from the region should not make decisions they will regret later.
Ekweremadu also likened voting for Peter Obi as “throwing away votes”.
Reacting to this, Madubuko stated that “it will soon be time for another new yam festival ol boy”, in reference to Ekweremadu being beaten up in Germany after he turned up for a New Yam Festival he was invited for in 2019.
In the video shared online at the time, Ekweremadu was attacked by a mob as he attempted to enter the venue of the event in Nuremberg, Germany. In the one-minute video, the mob chanted ‘go back’ while trying to deny Mr Ekweremadu entry.
