The Labour Party, LP, campaign office has rebuffed speculation that the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has agreed to back his Peoples Democratic Party counterpart, Atiku Abubakar.
This was disclosed by the LP campaign office in a statement issued in Abuja. The party described the report as a product of propagandists for cheap political points.
The statement, “Rather than strive to contend with the hard sell of their candidates, these mischief makers bandy about misleading accounts of the issue-based messages of our candidates just to score cheap political points and thus distract the discerning public.
“While we understand the frustration of dealing in their hard-to-sell, ‘expired milk’ [apologies to BAT] in a competitive market, the FairPlay rule demands that you don’t associate the good with the bad product. We demand honour even among thieves!
“We know the intention of the spin-doctors in selling an utterly false story that the highflying Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi, met with his PDP counterpart and reached a deal. Nothing can be further from the truth.”
“Obi’s foreign trip, its motive, and where and who to meet are already in the public domain; his meeting in the UK with some Nigerian political leaders is visually seen by all.
“But mischievous propagandists prefer to concoct lies in a desperate effort to clean up their candidate.
“We understand why the focus is on the Obi-Datti candidacy; they are easily the front runners in this 2023 race and the tag team has irresistible messages that are resonating with the embattled Nigerian public who are anxious more than ever to reclaim and take back their country.
“The LP candidates are on a divine mission to rescue and rebuild this country and cannot be distracted by any fabrications intended to mislead.
“If Obi’s mission is to rescue Nigeria from the old order, he ought not be seen working for the changing order.”
