2023: Peter Obi, LP Will Lose Steam Like Morocco At World Cup – Bwala
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Daniel Bwala, has said that Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, will suffer the same fate as Morocco at the just concluded 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
According to Bwala, Morocco went into the world cup running helter-skelter, eventually losing steam, and was kicked out of the competition.
Naija News reports that the spokesperson for Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation noted this in a post via his verified Twitter handle.
Recall that Morocco became the first African team to reach the semi-final stage in a football World Cup tournament.
Despite its outstanding performance, Morocco ended up contending for a third-place which it eventually lost to Croatia.
Reacting to the African country’s loss, Bwala said Obi would be sent home come February 2023.
He also compared his principal (Atiku) to the Argentine team, saying he would emerge a winner.
Bwala wrote: “Peter Obi and Labour are just like Morocco. They went to the World Cup as a new phenomenon running kiti kiti kata kata. When the game settled, they lost steam and were sent home. That’s how Peter Obi would be sent home in February Presidential elections. A-Atiku = A-Argentina.”
2023: Northern Elders Spokesman Gives Condition To Support Peter Obi
Meanwhile, on Sunday, the National Director of Publicity of the Northern Elders Forum, NEF, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, gave a condition to support Peter Obi.
The National Director said he would only support Obi if he is the best candidate in the 2023 election. The NEF spokesman stated this while speaking with Channels Television.
Baba-Ahmed says, “I can only root for Obi and my younger brother Datti if they are the best candidates.
“You know I’m working on a project with Northern Elders Forum, which gives all the candidates a level playing ground.”
Baba-Ahmed also stressed that a lot of Nigerians might be disenfranchised due to insecurity.
He noted that insecurity might prevent the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, from deploying materials for the election.
“There is a huge problem that must be tackled decisively. If you look at the South East, IPOB, unknown gunmen, whatever are targeting people and moving freely.
People are being prevented from voting because some people are burning INEC facilities,” he added.
