ISAAC OJO reports from Nnewi writes that a group of traditionalists under the banner of Odinana Anaedo said they have embarked on spiritual investigation and consultation to know who God has anointed for the job of Anambra state governor.
The President General of Odinana Anaedo, Dr David Igwilo stated this during a chat with journalists in his office in Nnewi, Anambra state.
He pointed out that the need to involve the spirits and deities in the land has become imperative to avoid making a mistake that would take another four years to correct, noting that the state would be better off if the anointed aspirant makes it to the Government House.
“Odinana Anaedo controls deities and shrines in Igboland and that is why we want to play active role in who becomes the next governor of the state. We don’t want to be ruled by emotions and sentiments, it is important to get it right.
“As human beings many people are trying to make up their minds on who they will vote for during the Anambra state governorship election but the issue is beyond mere casting of votes, the spiritual controls the physical and that is why we must get it right spiritually.
“We did this for Mr Peter Obi in his campaign days and he had a wonderful outing as a governor of the state not minding the activities of some contractor politicians who never meant well for the state. Peter Obi succeeded in office and beyond. The hands of the gods of the land were upon him. That is why we want to do a spiritual searching again.” He reasoned.
Dr Igwilo said that the result of their spiritual investigations would be made public as soon as they are done with it, noting that the result would help greatly to decide the direction of votes during the guber polls.
