The Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has been urged to accept that the President-elect, Bola Tinubu used him to emerge victorious in the just-concluded presidential election.
Reno Omokri, an ally of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, made the remark while noting that Obi was delusional to think he won the 2015 presidential election.
In a tweet, Omokri wrote on Wednesday: “What kind of delusion is making Peter Obi, who couldn’t win 25% of the votes outside SE and SS and NC states with a sizeable Igbo population and Lagos, claim he won #NigerianElections2023? My friend, accept that Tinubu used *** ***** to play you. Lick your wounds!
“2 days ago Labour suspended Basambo Abubakar, its Kwara guber candidate, for anti-party activities. Yesterday, Peter Obi asked Obidients to vote for PDP’s C River guber candidate, Sandy Onor. Will Labour also suspend him or are there different rules for different folks?”
The LP flag bearer came third in the presidential election after Atiku and the eventual winner, Tinubu.
Despite his loss, Obi had maintained that he won the poll and would contest the outcome of the election in court.
To this end, the former Anambra State Governor had constituted a body of lawyers to push his case at the Presidential Election Tribunal.
