Former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has alleged the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, deceived the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, into contesting the 2023 election to reduce the votes of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Naija News reports that the close ally of Atiku Abubakar in a post via his social media page said Peter Obi had no path to victory because he lacks national spread.
According to him, the former governor of Lagos State used his trusted business partners to deceive Peter Obi into joining the presidential race, knowing he lacks national spread.
Omokri further said that Tinubu displayed mastery in understanding the mentality of the Obidients, who he said lacked the humility to see that they were being played.
In places like Kaduna, Omokri claimed APC is using the same strategy by funding the Labour Party gubernatorial campaign, knowing that Southern Kaduna people will emotionally vote for Labour and divide PDP’s votes.
He said: “Peter Obi had no path to victory. He lacked national spread. Tinubu knew that. But he used his trusted business partner, who likes to dance publicly with him, to deceive Obi into contesting, knowing that that was the only way to reduce PDP’s numbers.
“And more importantly, Tinubu displayed mastery in understanding the mentality of the average Obidient. He knew they lacked the humility to see that they were being played!
“And it is not yet over. In places like Kaduna, the APC is using the same strategy. They cannot win on their own. So, they are funding the Labour gubernatorial campaign, knowing that Southern Kaduna people will emotionally vote Labour and divide PDP’s votes”
