Popular humanitarian activist and renowned advocate of pro-Igbo political justice, Kennedy Iyere has warned the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, against ruining his chances to win over Enugu in the upcoming election.
Iyere, who is one of the the closest supporters of Peter Obi, told Vanguard that there are plans from fake Obi allies to rob him of his victory.
According to him, “My investigation over the past weeks affirmed that three Igbo political elites, who are close allies of Atiku have been hired and paid to destroy Labour Party in Enugu State, as part of the grand sinister plot to derail Peter Obi and rob him of victory in Enugu State, in the forthcoming 2023 presidential election, while paving way for Atiku to defeat Obi, not just in Enugu State alone but also in other States across the South-East.”
Speaking further, he alleged that the three men are close to Obi and are ready to ruin his chances at the poll in Enugu State.
He argued that various political occurrences in the past few days in Abuja and Enugu have shown that the men are Atiku Abubakar’s henchmen sent to destroy the LP.
Iyere lamented that the men had successfully convinced Obi to buy into their lies and game of deceit designed to give Atiku an edge over the former Anambra State governor.
“Peter Obi must not allow himself to be brainwashed by these men who have falsely pledged their loyalty to him in the secret. They promised to betray Atiku by working behind the scene to favour Peter Obi. But it truly hurts knowing that these men have no truth in their mouths, while they have succeeded in brainwashing Peter Obi to embrace their lies.
“This man who filled the entire Enugu-East Senatorial Zone with weak candidates of the Labour Party, which include a Senatorial Seat, 3 House of Reps seats and 8 House of Assembly seats, all beneficiaries are installed by him, just in his desperate selfish efforts to derail Peter Obi and kill Labour Party in Enugu State, exclusively for the purpose of fortifying Atiku against Peter Obi, while enhancing Peter Mbah’s emergence as Enugu’s next Governor”, he added.
Iyere went on to state that no matter how much the men try to bring Obi down they would fail as he is the one that has being ordained by God to become the next president of the country.
