Youths from the Eastern part of Nigeria have described the ambition of Labour Party’s Peter Obi as sabotage ahead of the 2023 general election.
EKO HOT BLOG reports that a coalition of youths in Anambra State called on the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, to step down if he is a true Igbo.
The youths said that the chances of Ndigbo to become President of Nigeria is now slim since the declaration of Obi.
National Leader of the coalition, Dr. Chinedu Ekwealor, briefed journalists in Awka, Anambra State, where he disclosed that Obi’s ambition at this period was sabotage to Ndigbo.
Ekwealor stressed that the Former Anambra governor does not have a competent alliance with other groups that can make him president in 2023.
The group said: “Our brother, Peter Obi, does not have this alliance and knows very well that an irate social media mob does not, and cannot, make him president.”
“Obi’s presidential run is sabotage to Ndigbo. What he has only succeeded in doing is increasing APC’s chances of winning the election by depleting the votes of the Southeast for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The group maintained that the ambition of Obi would keep the South Easterners out of power for over 16 years, adding that if Tinubu wins, power will return to the north.
“The implication is that the South Easterners will have to stay out of power for a minimum of another 16 years.”
“This is because after Tinubu (if he wins), power will return to the North for another eight years, leaving Ndigbo out for another 16 solid years.”
While speaking, the National President of the group advised Obi to step down in order to strategize, stressing that the election is not won by a mob who doesn’t understand the new narrative of the Igbo nation.
“If Obi truly loves Ndigbo, he should step down forthwith and strategise with other well-meaning Igbo elite in charting a way forward for the Igbo nation.”
“We repeat, the presidency is not won on the premise of wishful thinking and hullabaloo of an untamed mob, who probably do not even understand the need for a pathway for the Igbo nation, pushing for a new narrative for the Igbo nation.”
