Peter Obi made this disclosure during an interview on Channels TV, regarding an encounter with Babatunde Fashola, the current Minister of Works.
This event happened while Obi was seeking re-election as Anambra Governor against Chris Ngige of the All Progressives Congress.
Fashola was amongst Ngige’s campaign team and Obi recalled how he provided logistics while moving his schedule to accommodate the APC team.
“As a governor I cancelled my campaign in a day because the vehicles I was supposed to use, I gave them to Fashola and his team who came to campaign for ngige. I continued the next day, that’s how it should be,” Obi noted.
Obidients Sends Strong Warning To Peter Obi
Various Obidient support groups under the aegis of Abia Obidients have urged the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, to cancel his visit to Aba, Abia State, ahead of the governorship election on Saturday.
The groups begged the LP flag bearer to cancel his visit over security threats.
The support groups, in a statement, noted that the Obi’s visit to Aba “is a setup fraught with serious security threats.”
The group comprises of Peter Obi Grassroots Movement (POGM), Obidient Across Parties Alliance (OAPA), Peter Obi Support Movement (POSM), Women for Peter Obi Alliance (W4POA), Obidient Abia Youths Forum (OAYF), Abia Obidients Vanguard (AOV), Peter Obi National Movement (PONAM), Abia Obidients Students Forum (AOSF), Abia Obidient Traders Association (AOTC) and Abia Obidients Youth Alliance (AOYA).
They said: “The Abia Obidents comprising members of various political parties who all worked for the LP presidential candidate during the presidential election in the state are of the firm belief that Obi has played his part by coming severally to Abia to campaign for LP despite the fact that they (Abia Obidients) mobilized virtually all citizens of the state to vote for him at the just concluded presidential election.”
