Peter Obi Will Go Down As Nigeria's Most Dangerous And Divisive Politician - APC

According to information gathered from The Punch, the All Progressives Congress has said that the manner in which Peter Obi rode on the waves of religion and ethnicity during Saturday's election depicts that he will go down in history as Nigeria's most divisive and dangerous politician. Dele Alake, Special Adviser on Media and Communication for the APC PCC made this claim at a press conference in Abuja while addressing the allegations that INEC helped the APC to rig the presidential election.

It should be recalled that after a keenly contested presidential election, Bola Tinubu of the APC who scored a total of 8,794, 72 votes defeated his closet rivals Atiku Abubakar of the PDP who scored 6,984,520 and Peter Obi who polled a total of 6,101,533 votes respectively. It will interest you to note that Atiku and Obi have kicked against the results with each claiming that the election was fraught with violence and massive rigging and have filed a suit in court challenging Tinubu's victory.

In a way of mocking Peter Obi's attempt to convince the court, Alake stated that he couldn't imagine how a divisive politician like the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi could take advantage of Nigerian youths, who were seriously searching for a hero.

He said, “For Obi, he would go down as Nigeria’s most dangerous and divisive politician. He boosted his well-known clannish mentality to a most disastrous height by openly attaching his campaign on religion and ethnicity. He presented himself as a poster boy for and a champion of our country’s fault lines."

He accused Peter Obi of taking advantage of the youths who were uninterested in excuses because their expectations were fast pace and were in search of someone to be their hero. He accused Obi of pretending to be a saviour, stressing that his credentials are eternally stained as a former governor with no remarkable legacy.
