Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has alleged that Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, is only interested in profit making and will soon cash out from his party.
We understands that Omokri is a staunch supporter and loyalist to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar
The socio-political activist via his Twitter page on Monday (today) accused Obi of using Labour Party for his personal gains.
He alleged that the former Governor of Anambra State will sell the LP out for his selfish benefit at the slightest opportunity.
The former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan maintained that Obi was using LP to contest the election, adding that he is incompatible with the party.
In a series of tweets, Omokri wrote: “Obi is not compatible with Labour’s ideology. He’s just using them to contest the election.
“And, as he did with their Rivers guber candidate, he will sell them out for his selfish benefit at the slightest opportunity. Obi is a trader for profit, not a leader or prophet.
“Obi’s plan to eliminate import restrictions is anti-labour. It will flood Nigeria with cheap imports and will affect local manufacturing.
“He is not yet President, and he is already selling out labour. He is a trade,r not a leader. He will always sell out to cash out!
“Peter Obi lied about Odili. He lied about IBL brewery employing 60% of Anambra’s population. He lied about his shares of IBL.
“He lied about Tinubu sending out anti-Igbo WhatsApp broadcasts. Yet Obidients say he has integrity? Where did he hide his missing integrity?”
2023: Peter Obi Speaks On Working With Aggrieved PDP Governors
Emeka Obasi, media aide to the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party said on Sunday that his principal has expressed his willingness to seek the support of the aggrieved Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors to actualize his ambition.
Obasi said this hours after the PDP governors and some party leaders now known as the Integrity group met behind closed doors yesterday at the Southern Sun hotel, Ikoyi, Lagos State.
In a communique read by the former governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang, the group reiterated its readiness for reconciliation, saying that they are still open to dialogue.
The group said its demands which include the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Senator Iyiocha Ayu, and the choice of his successor from the South still stand.
According to the communique, the governors maintained that they will not participate in the PDP presidential campaign and support the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar until their demands are met.
Reacting to the development in a chat with The Punch, Obasi said there is a chance Obi may be willing to work with the Integrity Group if it will benefit the Nigerian people.
Obasi said the PDP governors are important politicians who are ready to support any presidential candidate of their choice wholeheartedly.
