‘We Are All Prisoners’ – Peter Obi Says As He Celebrates Easter With Inmates


The Labour Party Presidential Candidate in the 2023 general election Peter Obi has admonished prisoners not to feel isolated and finished because everybody is in prison in Nigeria seeking the face of God for freedom and redemption.

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”.

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 will 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.
