Peter Obi The Most Dangerous – APC

The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council has described the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi as the “most dangerous and divisive politician.”


The council arrived at this conclusion due to how Obi rode on the waves of religion and ethnicity on the way to the February 25 presidential election.


APC’s Special Adviser on Media and Communication for the PCC, Dele Alake made the claim at a press conference in Abuja to address the allegation of rigging and collusion with the electoral umpire.


On the LP’s attempt to seek court redress, Alake stated that he couldn’t imagine how a divisive politician like Obi could take advantage of Nigerian youths, who were earnestly in search of a hero.


He said:

“For Obi, he would go down as Nigeria’s most dangerous and divisive politician. He elevated his well-known clannish mentality to a most unfortunate height by openly anchoring his campaign on religion and ethnicity. He presented himself as a poster boy for and a champion of our country’s fault lines.


“He took advantage of our youths whose expectations are fast-paced, who are uninterested in excuses, and who were in search of a hero. He pumped up their sentiments and rode on their emotions while grandstanding as a saviour. It was a false pretence. Obi’s credentials are eternally stained as a former governor with no remarkable legacy.


“If Labour Party could not fill up its quota for polling booth agents with a shortfall of over 40, 000, how did it intend to compete with political parties like APC and PDP? It would be interesting to see what evidence of rigging Labour Party will present before the court when the party could not appoint agents to monitor nearly a quarter of the venues of election.”
