Peter Obi says all Nigerians’re prisoners as he celebrates Easter with inmates

Prison inmates in Nigeria have been admonished not to feel isolated and finished as everybody is in prison in Nigeria asking for God’s intervention for freedom and redemption.

The Labour Party Presidential candidate in the 2023 general election Peter Obi made the admonition on Easter Sunday to mark 2024 celebration with the less privileged, especially prisoners.

Obi who celebrated the Easter mass with prisoners at the Correctional Center in Onitsha, Anambra State told the prisoners that from the day’s reading, Mary Magdalene who was the first to discover the resurrected Christ was once unholy but today she is reformed and privileged to discover the rising of Christ even before the Apostles.

“What that means is that being in prison is not the end of life as they could get corrected and enjoy salvation even before the so-called free people, ”he said.

DAILY POST reports that the Archbishop of Onitsha Catholic Archdiocese, His Grace Valerie Okeke who celebrated the Easter mass with about 12 other priests inside the Correctional Center had in a homily said that if Mary Magdalene could transform to be among the early beneficiaries of the Christ resurrection, even them in the Correctional Center would turn around to be great in the society and before God.

The highlights of the Easter celebration with the inmates which Obi has been doing from his days as Governor of the Anambra State (2006 to 2014) were the dancing and elation of the inmates in their various cultural groups all shouting his praises as a friend and father of the prisoners.
