“We know what cultism has done to this local government, we also know the numerous lives we’ve lost as a result of cultism that is why we should not vote for any candidate or party that can stand in the house of God and publicly announce its decision to legalise cultism and return this LGA to our dark days”, he stated.
Dr. Thomas urged the people not to pay attention to candidates who only remember Khana when they need votes and forgot them while they occupied prominent positions in government.
“You see all those people troop into the LGA on daily basis trying to deceive you to vote for them in the name of Ogoni turn, do not listen to them, ask them what they did for Khana people while they occupied prominent government positions, ask them where they were when crisis rocked your communities, they don’t have anything to offer you”, he said.
