Why Obi must drop ambition, by business mogul


DIRAN Onifade, spokesperson for the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, yesterday, described comments ascribed to Anambra businessman, Arthur Eze, about the LP candidate as unfortunate but not unexpected.

Eze had condemned Obi’s ambition of becoming Nigeria’s next president after President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

He said this during the 2022 Ofala festival of Igwe Robert Eze, the traditional ruler of Ukpo in Dunukofia local government area of the State.

The businessman noted that he advised Obi to wait for next time after, however, listening to him list the number of states he thought he would win.

Eze said: “I warned Peter Obi to withdraw from this race but he would not listen. I told him plainly that I am not part of his plans. I told him to drop his ambition, and wait for next time.

“When he told me about his ambition, I asked him the states he thinks he can win in the west and in the north – he told me; but I was not convinced. I told him he cannot win; so that he would not waste his time and money.”
