keyamo obi assassination attempt

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has said the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, is planning to stage-manage an assassination attempt on himself.

Keyamo, who is also the Spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, said the plan will see Labour Party members dressed as APC members to carry out attacks on their party’s offices.

The minister who made this known in a statement on Monday, advised the former governor of Anambra State to quit the presidential race if he had nothing else to offer.

The statement read in part, “We are also aware that plans are afoot by Mr Peter Obi to fake an assassination attempt on himself and hire Labour Party boys dressed in APC caps and T-shirts to attack some Labour Party offices. It is all part of the “US Plan”. It is the first in a series of incendiary actions planned by this ill-prepared but desperate candidate.

“We call on all well-meaning Nigerians, irrespective of ethnic origins or political divides, to rise up and condemn these tactless tactics and cheap manoeuver by a desperate non-starter of a presidential candidate who has decided to resort to crude revisionism, ethnic jingoism and crass insensitivity with a view to whipping up undeserved sentiment to fuel his faltering ambition that is nothing but a flash in a pan.

“Our advice to Mr. Peter Obi is to quit the race if he has nothing more to tell Nigerians.

“We also wish to use this medium to debunk the false and misleading posts on various social media handles of supporters of Mr. Peter Obi that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is withdrawing from the race on health grounds. This is nothing but a figment of their warped imaginations. Our candidate is strong, healthy and fit enough for the coming campaigns. The opposition will hear loud and clear from him soon.”
