History will remember Obi as most dangerous man who brought politics of religion, says Tinubu’s campaign council
The All Progressives Congress marketing campaign council has mentioned the way wherein the Labour Occasion presidential candidate, Peter Obi, rode on the waves of faith and ethnicity in Saturday’s election exhibits that he’ll go down in historical past because the nation’s “most harmful and divisive politician.”
The declare was made by the Particular Adviser on Media and Communication for the PCC, Dele Alake, at a press convention in Abuja to handle the allegation of rigging and collusion with the electoral umpire.
The President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, was introduced the winner of the keenly contested Saturday’s presidential election on Wednesday.
Tinubu had polled 8,794,726 votes to defeat the LP flag bearer and his closest rival, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Occasion, by 6,984,520 and 6,101,533 votes respectively.
However each Atiku and Obi have kicked in opposition to the outcomes with every claiming that the election was fraught with violence and large rigging.
Consequently, they’ve resorted to take their case to court docket for redress.
Whereas mocking LP’s try to persuade the court docket, Alake said that he couldn’t think about how a divisive politician like Obi might reap the benefits of Nigerian youths, who had been earnestly seeking a hero.
He mentioned, “For Obi, he would go down as Nigeria’s most harmful and divisive politician. He elevated his well-known clannish mentality to a most unlucky peak by overtly anchoring his marketing campaign on faith and ethnicity. He introduced himself as a poster boy for and a champion of our nation’s fault traces.
“He took benefit of our youths whose expectations are quick paced, who’re bored with excuses, and who had been seeking a hero. He pumped up their sentiments and rode on their feelings whereas grandstanding as a saviour. It was a false pretence. Obi’s credentials are eternally stained as a former governor with no exceptional legacy.
“Not a number of of our youths thought Peter Obi seemed just like the chief they needed and plenty of of them couldn’t tolerate any type of scrutiny of their newfound hero. They selected wilfully to canonise him whereas insisting nobody ought to ask questions. The mixture of the disgruntled youths, the ethnic champions, and industrial clerics was the explanation Obi thought he might win a presidential election in Nigeria. Such illogic will not be unusual to the Labour Occasion.
“If Labour Occasion couldn’t replenish its quota for polling sales space brokers with a shortfall of over 40, 000, how did it intend to compete with political events like APC and PDP? It could be attention-grabbing to see what proof of rigging Labour Occasion will current earlier than the court docket when the celebration couldn’t appoint brokers to observe practically 1 / 4 of the venues of election,” he mentioned.
Whereas applauding Obi and Atiku’s resolution to shift their battle to the judicial turf, Alake said that it will be a miracle to see how they hoped to overturn the election ends in court docket.
The previous Lagos commissioner reiterated that by the point they had been via with their journey, the APC practice would have left the station in its bid to make the nation higher for all Nigerians.
“As we look ahead to an encounter with each the PDP and LP on the court docket, we need to enjoin the 2 of them to pursue their grievances with decorum. They need to encourage their members, supporters, and ethnic and non secular consultants to observe the trail of the rule of regulation.
“The declare that INEC didn’t use the BVAS is fake. Those that voted throughout Nigeria, together with Atiku and Obi, had been accredited by BVAS. Save for unhealthy losers that these two folks have proved to be, we should always reasonably be celebrating the large enchancment using BVAS has delivered to our electoral course of. The grievance over the digital transmission of the consequence will not be supported by regulation.
“Part 38 of the Electoral Act 2022 referred to by the PDP and LP has nothing to do with transmission of election outcomes. Part 60, subsection 2 of the Act offers with transmission of outcomes and it’s on the discretion of INEC. The Act doesn’t comprise any obligatory provision concerning the transmission of outcomes,” he said.
