Obi not quitting presidential race, LP insists

Reports claiming that Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi would withdraw from the February 25 election are false, according to the media arm of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council.

Even as the Obi-Datti Media Office made the accusation that unidentified political parties had cloned Obi’s image on gifts to portray him as someone who is using inducements to win votes for him.

The Obi-Datti Campaign Media Office described the report as ludicrous and fake in a statement released on Friday.

“The fact that 18 people are present at a marathon to select a trophy and that someone is suggesting that the front-runner in the race who is already seeing the trophy wants to step down for someone behind is the most absurd thing about the whole thing.

“The fact that other political parties that are running for president have been cloning the LP candidate in their corruptly induced gifts, such as rice bags, posters, and billboards, speaks volumes about who the man to beat in this race is.

“The Labour Party and its presidential campaign have increased in leaps and bounds since June 2022, when Obi emerged as the flag bearer of the party alongside other presidential contestants. This has attracted both local and global attention. The reality is that other contestants and their parties are now measuring themselves against Peter Obi’s performance.

“The fact that the other parties struggle to associate their own candidates with Obi, even when they do not have his permission, exemplifies who ought to be associated with withdrawing from the race.

The media office also said that the people behind the report wanted to distract Obi from the race in the hope that doing so would give them (the people behind the report) a chance to win.

“The first thing that the unreasonable and ridiculous kite-flyers are trying to do, which seemed to be dead on arrival, is to give themselves the false hope that they are competing to win; second, to keep our candidate’s attention away from the ball, which he or she is already glued to, and third, to cause public confusion.

“It would be laughable, if not a joke, to suggest that Obi is considering stepping down, for God’s sake, after being confirmed to be ahead by four scientifically conducted opinion polls.

“But we understand their handicap of living in the past and refusing to buy into the raging idea whose time has come that the most vibrant and vigorous arm of the country’s populace, the youths, are resolute and already charged to take back their country and that they have found in the LP standard bearer, Obi, the right man for this journey whose destination is already known. They have found in Obi the right man for this journey whose destination is already known.”

“It’s either the purveyors of this ignoble news are clear agents of mischief hoping to cause confusion in the polity or they are incomprehensible and unintelligible about the developing political dynamics in the country.

It went on to say that, “Given what is in the political space around the leading presidential candidates since the electioneering, it is crystal clear that the obviously established filthy and disgustingly dirty candidates should be the ones who should be bowing out to give way for the revolution whose time has come.”
