AS shocking as last Sunday’s massacre of some worshipers by a gunman at St. Philip’s Catholic Church could be, trust Nigerian politicians to turn every situation to their advantage. Barely few hours after the incident, many governorship aspirants swarmed the scene with long convoy of cars and blaring sirens.

As disturbing as what happened in that church that  Sunday  morning could be, many people who were at the scene of the incident still had time to sing praises of the aspirants they admire and support.

Governor Willie Obiano, the incumbent governor was the first important personality to arrive at Amakwa and despite his efforts to act according to the mood of the day, supporters of his party, APGA, still cheered by shouting ‘Agbakudike global’. Though he appeared not to be in the mood for such compliments, he was forced to wave before going to meet the parish priest of the church, Rev Fr. Jude Onwuaso who briefed him on the incident.

Indications are that most of the other aspirants would visit the area as soon as they arrive Anambra State.
