A Lawyer and social activist, Reno Omokri said the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, had no path to victory because he lacked national spread.
Omokri said the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu, who was aware of that fact, used his trusted business partners to deceive Obi into joining the presidential race.
According to him, Bola Tinubu did that to reduce the votes of the Peoples Democratic Party, which came second in the election.
The former aide to Ex-president Goodluck Jonathan added that the president-elect 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 maintained that the APC is using the same strategy, saying the party is funding the Labour Party gubernatorial campaign, knowing that Southern Kaduna people will emotionally vote Labour and divide PDP’s votes.
“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,” Omokri said on his social media handles.
