A Prominent Lagos-based Lawyer, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa (SAN) has stated the Labour Party 2023 Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi and his Running Mate, Senator Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed lacked the Political Structure to win the fortcoming Election but they leveraged on their Financial prowess to buy the platform meant for genuine working-class Representatives.
He added that Obi, a Former Governor of Anambra State is no different from his Counterparts in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. It will be recalled that Obi was a Presidential Aspirant under the PDP before his Defection to the Labour Party (LP) where he finally secured the Ticket to contest the 2023 Presidential Election.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) also said Obi would have never emerged as a Presidential Candidate in the PDP. “Are we not to rate Aspirants in line with their track records? Or what exactly can we find for inspiration in Obi’s eight-year rule in Anambra State?” He asked.
