Why Peter Obi Defeated Tinubu In Lagos – Momodu
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dele Momodu has revealed why the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi won in Lagos State.
Naija News recalls that Obi defeated the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu in his stronghold.
Momodu on Thursday claimed that Obi won in Lagos State because of the “preponderance of the Igbo people in Lagos”.
Speaking on Channels TV, he said, “What transpired last Saturday, the major factor was ethnic: the Labour Party was able to take over the APC behemoth because of the preponderance of the Igbo people in Lagos. They are everywhere.”
He further stated that Obi and the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar held their respective geopolitical bases, but Tinubu could not hold on to his base in Lagos.
Momodu stated, “Obi started in the East. He had his base intact. Atiku had his base intact in the Northeast and the North-West. The only person who could not hold his base was Bola Tinubu and now you are telling me that a man who could not hold his base is the champion in the North?
“Last Saturday was another sad day for our country.
“A faulty process cannot give birth to a perfect process. The Electoral Act was not obeyed. So, whosoever won last Saturday cannot lay claim to legitimacy. That process gave birth to the hullabaloo that we have now.”
