Peter Obi’s Kinsmen Vow To Crush Him, Says He Is A Social Media Candidate

The people of Anaocha local government area in Anambra State, where the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, hails from, have vowed to crush him during the 2023 general election.

According to them, the local government has always been a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stronghold.

Naija News reports that the coordinator from Obi’s local government, Adilieje Ugochukwu said Anaocha had always been for PDP, noting that the LP presidential flagbearer is a social media candidate.

He pointed out that they are here to win in the PDP and they won’t hesitate to crush anyone who stands in their way because they won’t allow their people to continue to be victims of sentiments and emotions.

Ugochukwu, at the meeting of the 21 local government coordinators with the Presidential Management Committee,(PCMC) in Awka today, explained that Obi never consulted his political family about his presidential ambition before leaving.

He advanced that the local government belonged to PDP and they must own up, adding that Obi is not popular in his hometown, he is only popular on social media.

The coordinator continued saying “We were in the party before Peter Obi joined us when he left APGA, and PDP was already formidable and winning elections. His decision to leave after many years of benefiting from the PDP and to pursue his personal ambitions cannot impact the party negatively.

“Peter Obi never consulted his political family before his decision to leave; for him, it was his personal ambition, and such cannot be binding on us all as we have our own personal ambition, which is for PDP to win in next year’s election and in other elections.

“Do not be scared of anyone; we are in this to win. Our mandate is Atiku, and we’ll crush anyone standing in our way. We cannot allow our people to continue to be victims of emotions and sentiments.

“We are members of the PDP and must own up to our party and her presidential candidate and ensure that he wins in our local government and state.

“Peter Obi is only popular on social media and not in Anaocha. Anyone can organise a rally that every Tom, Dick and Harry will attend but on the day of the election, the real voters will cast their votes accordingly.

“Peter Obi’s personal decision cannot be binding on us all. Anaocha PDP.”
