The Special Adviser to the President on Information and Strategy, Mr Bayo Onanuga, yesterday urged the Labour Party (LP) Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to “prove his belief in Nigeria.”
In a statement titled: “Peter Obi should find better vocation instead of casting aspersions on the Judiciary”, Onanuga also admonished Obi to find another worthwhile vocation to engage his time henceforth.
“If Mr Peter Obi truly believes in Nigeria, the time to prove it is now when all men and women of goodwill are rallying support for President Bola Tinubu in his determination to lead a new era of prosperity, inclusive governance and economic growth.
“Our admonition to Obi is to find another worthwhile vocation to engage his time henceforth, having been rejected by majority of Nigerians who didn’t consider him qualified to lead our country,” Onanuga uttered.
The presidential aide hinted that Obi’s antecedents as Governor of Anambra for eight years didn’t inspire any confidence as someone capable of running a country like Nigeria.
According to him, no tangible records of achievement in the state he governed recommended him for the Presidency of Nigeria.
“The LP presidential candidate in the last election, Mr Peter Obi, addressed a press conference, just like Atiku Abubakar, where he cast aspersions on the Supreme Court.
“He also attacked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for not declaring him the winner of the February 25, 2023 election.
“We are at a loss as to how the copy-cat Obi and his faction of Labour Party convinced themselves they won an election in which they came a distant third.”
