72 hours to poll, desperate opponents seeking Obi’s anointing from the back door —Campaign media office

Obi (l) and Datti

With barely 72 hours to poll, opponents have intensified their efforts to tap into the envious profile of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, ostensibly for want of good ingredients on their candidate to market at this wee hour left.

That exactly is what is playing out in the political space as desperate PDP marketers mischievously want at all costs to tap on the name of the moment, Peter Obi of the Labour Party.

A statement from the Obi-Datti Media office, says attention of the Labour Party has been drawn to some videos of  its presidential standard bearer, Obi, when he was the running mate to the former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform in 2019 wher he called on Nigerians to vote for Atiku is being circulated by opponents, apparently.

Also, a video of Obi attending the presidential declaration of Atiku earlier in the year explaining why he attended the declaration while nursing the same ambition is also being circulated using Obi’s testimonial on Atiku.

The statement reads: “It’s understandable why everybody wants to tap into Obi’s ‘anointing’. He is the only name in the political space currently that has the people's acceptance and his opponents want to draw from the living water, as it were.

“Obi had delivered and still delivering tempting and irresistible messages that resonate with the Nigerian people, which opponents think they can tap from by posting his past remarks on them to deceive credulous voters.

“Truth remains that Obi asked Nigerians to vote for Atiku in 2019 when he was his running mate when he had hoped his position as his number two will help his aspirations, especially as the position of president was justifiably zoned to the geopolitical North then.

“Today all discerning minds are unanimous that for justice, peace, and stability, the Presidency of this country should go South and in particular, the South East, which is yet to taste the position, especially as the North held the position for the past eight years.

“The LP presidential ticket holder had also succinctly explained why he attended Atiku’s declaration while nursing the same ambition because he does not see politics as a war of enemies more so that he was still in the same political party, the PDP with Atiku then.

“The Obi-Datti Media office, therefore wishes to appeal to Nigerians, particularly the Obedient family to disregard the mischief intended by the circulators of such video, who thought they can tap on Obi’s anointing from the back door.

“If they have a message to Nigerians on why the voters should look their way on Saturday, February 25, 2023, they should have been showcasing it, instead of looking for a good name to tap from.

“Finally, the Obi-Datti Media office wishes to advise these mischief makers who are seeking to harvest where they did not sow that this electioneering is an era of 3Cs; Competence, Character, and Capacity and no longer of my turn or entitlements based on religion and tribe. That era is history,” the statement concluded.
