Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, has slammed Senator Dino Melaye for accusing him of splitting votes for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
WITHIN NIGERIA reports that in a statement issued on Saturday, Melaye accused Peter Obi’s supporters, known as ‘Obidients,’ of working for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, and urged the former Anambra State governor to “come back home” to support Atiku to prevent the APC from remaining in power.
According to the former lawmaker, Peter Obi will not win the presidential election because the Labour Party lacks the necessary structure.
While claiming that Obi lacks the ability to unite Nigeria, he pointed out that the Labour Party has only 30 senatorial candidates, compared to 109 senatorial seats.
Peter Obi, speaking through the spokesman of his presidential campaign council, Yunusa Tanko, said the PDP presidential candidate is desperate for support.
According to the LP presidential candidate, his political party has a presence in every part of Nigeria, and he does not need to compete for a base.
Nigerians, according to Yunusa, are looking for genuine change, which they have seen in the Labour Party and their presidential candidate.
We are not looking for a base. It is Atiku that is struggling for a base. Labour Party and Peter Obi supporters are in every part of Nigeria so, we don’t need to struggle with anyone for structure or base,” Tanko said.
Tanko further noted that the party is ready for the 2023 polls and would “continue to mobilise Nigerians to vote for Peter Obi and Labour Party for a better future.
