The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has advised the Labour Party Presidential Candidate in February presidential election, Peter Obi to rather form alliance with the incumbent President Bola Ahmed Tinubu other than Atiku Abubakar or Rabiu Kwankwaso.
A statement by Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide described Peter Obi, Atiku and Kwankwaso’s plan to take power from APC as not only daydreaming but satanic.
Isiguzoro, who however, described the ongoing talk as a welcome development as it will keep the Tinubu-led administration on its toe, further warned Petet Obi to be wary of Kwankwaso Atiku, who are looking for a way to exploit Obi’s credibility.
“The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo insisted that the ongoing reported talk between the opposition political parties leaders is a welcome development.
“It will put the APC led-Federal Government on her toes to ensure that the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration delivers all the campaign promises to Nigerians.
“But anything contrary to these are not only regarded as inconsiderate pursuits of drowning politicians whose aimed are satanic, mischievous but laughable.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo observed that there is the possibility of a collapse in their talks because Nigerians will not accept Atiku or Kwankwaso as the leader of the alliance because Nigerians know that the uncharitable disposition and desperation of Atiku Abubakar .
“PDP will never allow him to support Peter Obi to be the leader of the Nigerian opposition, the ill-fated journey of Atiku/Obi/Kwankwaso will crumble in the future.
“Nigerians are warning the presidential candidate of the Labour Party to be wary of failed politicians whose interests are looking for a way to exploit the credibility and popularity of Peter Obi to see how to depose President Bola Ahmed Tinubu from power.
“Nigerians are watching keenly the latest attempt of drowning politicians to use Obi to wrestle power from APC in the future or possible rerun. The indelible stain of such alliance talks between Atiku, kwankwaso, and Obi will destroy Peter Obi if he Obi decide to play a second fiddle.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo caution the Labour Party candidate Peter Obi that the association with Atiku and kwankwaso will destroy him except if the two will support him to lead the unified opposition political parties and which is unlikely.
“Peter Obi should work alongside with Tinubu than the two of Atiku and Kwankwaso or stand independently, Peter Obi will lose support from Nigerians if he plays the second fiddle in the future and Ndigbo urge him to pull out of the alliance talks”, he advised.
