Prophet Godfrey Gbujie of Ministerial Leader of World Zionist Union in the South-East has expressed shock over the sudden withdrawal of Mr. Peter Obi from the 2023 presidential race under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The popular prophet had on May 18, 2022, declared that God revealed to him that the former presidential aspirant would get the PDP ticket to run for president in 2023.
However, Obi on Wednesday, announced his resignation from the main opposition party and withdrew from the presidential race.
Reacting to the development, the Prophet told NAN on Thursday that he was shocked upon hearing the report.
He claimed that the former aspirant failed to consult well before tendering his resignation letter, saying God already endorsed Obi.
He said, “I must say that I am shocked by the sudden withdrawal of Peter Obi from the PDP, his action could be likened to that of King Saul of Israel in the Bible shortly after he was made king.
“Obi did not consult many stakeholders within and outside the PDP before he threw in the towel in a venture God had already endorsed him.
“I do know that a group backing his presidential aspiration on the platform of the PDP as of early Wednesday had raised more than N2.5 billion and other meetings were selected for Wednesday evening and on Thursday before a sudden news of his withdrawal came”.
