Atiku is My Candidate But I think Peter Obi's Popularity Worries Some People -Opunabo Inko-Tariah

A former aide to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Opunabo Inko-Tariah, has spoken about some people who may be frightened by the growing popularity of Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi. During his interview on News Central, Opunabo stated that he is a supporter of the PDP's Atiku but expressed concerns over the treatment meted out to Peter Obi's supporters in some parts of the country.

Addressing the topic, Opunabo said, "I learned that some people from the South East were allegedly denied their PVC collection in Lagos State. This shows some machinations by some desperate characters who are trying to disenfranchise Nigerians. I am supporting Atiku Abubakar, but I will honestly say that the popularity of Peter Obi may have frightened people like APC's Tinubu. Some of those frightened by Obi's popularity are trying to ensure that the South East is disenfranchised because they believe that zone is his stronghold.

He added, "How else do you explain that the PVCs were discovered in the bus in the South East?" I wonder who collected those PVCs from INEC because doing so entails some procedures, like the identification of the card owners. Your face must match the photo on the PVC before collection. I do not recall INEC reporting that their offices were raided and PVCS were carted away. Yes, some INEC offices were burned, but that would have led to the burning of PVC instead. I am convinced that some electoral officers are working in cahoots with a presidential candidate.
