Former Enugu Governor Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, on Sunday, asked the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi, to withdraw his petition against the President-Elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and join him in the task of making a new nation.
Nnamani in a statement in Abuja, urged Obi and his supporters to align with the ebullience and conviviality welcoming Tinubu’s victory to the Office of the President of the greatest black nation on earth.
According to him, Obi knows he has neither spread nor national appeal to win the Presidential Election pointing out that what Obi is doing with the petition is “bad belle, petulance and demarketing.
Nnamani reiterated that Peter Obi does not have near spread and national appeal adding that Obi’s petition is ego driven, joke carried too far.
Nnamani further stated that Obi’s attempt to highlight on non electoral issues is his plan to embarrass President elect.”
His Words “Obi needs to come down from his high horse to allow sedate minds to negotiate on behalf of the Igbo and South East for safe landing to include our stake in the national Palavar and Share of the accruals of the commonwealth.”
“We must join the main stream and participate in the making of a new Nigeria. We are not going any where. We de kampe and ready to bargain for our own share. It is a common knowledge that others are doing the same.
“His Petition is dead on arrival. He does not have the spread or national appeal. His appeal to non electoral matters is to demarket the President elect and besmirch his reputation.”
“Peter Obi should drop his ego now and withdraw his petition and join Tinubu if he sincerely wants a new Nigeria as he is claiming
