Senior pastor of Family Worship Centre Sarah Omakwu has thrown her weight behind the presidential candidate of Labour Party Peter Obi.

Omakwu on Thursday uploaded photos of herself with Mr Obi on social media.

Using the pun OBI-dient which Obi’s supporters use in describing themselves, the clergywoman said, “Isaiah 1:19…….if you are willing and Obi-dient, you will eat the good of the land.”

Before meeting the former Anambra State governor, Omakwu had called on Christians to vote for the “candidate without structure,” an allusion to Obi.

“Therefore, you are going to get your PVC, and we are going to waste our votes,” Omakwu exclaimed in a video posted to social media on June 19.

“That candidate that they say doesn’t have structure; structure has not helped us.

“Structure has taken away power from us, structure does not have electricity, structure is killing people, structure has left us jobless, structure has killed us; so, we will be structureless and we shall waste our votes. Wherever there is (political party) structure, don’t vote.”

Omakwu also faulted the ruling All Progressives Congress for fielding Muslim presidential and vice-presidential candidates.

The cleric urged foremost religious leaders in Nigeria to unanimously direct Christians to vote for one candidate at the polls.

“My prayer is that God will raise up for us, a voice like there was Benson Idahosa; that one of these fathers will speak in this 2023 elections and direct the church to cast one vote in one place. For the first time, the church will vote one vote!” She said.
