Labour Party Sure Obi Will Land More Endorsements From Elder Statesman

Yunusa Tanko, the spokesperson for the Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Council, has claimed that Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, will have more support from Nigeria’s eminent leaders, as February 25th draws near.

Obi’s campaign for president, according to Yunusa, is a national endeavour rather than a personal one.

The LP presidential candidate’s campaign spokesperson revealed this in an exclusive interview with The Punch on Saturday.

When asked whether the LP presidential candidate would get more endorsements from relevant figures in the country’s polity, Tanko said.”Sure, as we speak today this particular quest is not about an individual, it is a collective fight to get Nigeria out of the present quagmire. So, every state is expected to work for this project.”

The LP spokesperson leveraged Peter Obi’s endorsement from former president Olusegun Obasanjo, quoting his address to Nigerians.

Recall that in his New Year’s address to Nigerians, former President Olusegun Obasanjo endorsed Obi in an open letter asking the youth to be serious about their decision and the 2023 general elections.

Commenting further, Yunusa stressed: “Peter Obi is working for the Nigerian people and he has vowed that he is going to change the narrative of Nigeria from a consumption stage to a production stage. I think all those who are trying to associate themselves with the progress of Mr Peter Obi-Datti are just trying to gain public notice. As we are speaking we are coasting to victory for the Nigerian people.”

He emphasised that “This is just what the former President Olusegun Obasanjo said that if you are looking for somebody with a track record, vision, character, and physical attributes with mental capacity that is exactly what Peter Obi epitomises. Peter Obi is strongly working to get Nigeria out of the woods.”
