Bayo Onanuga, the Director Media and Communications, Tinubu Campaign Organisation, has said the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, is a social media creation.
According to Onanuga who spoke to PUNCH, Obi will fade out in the next five months, prior to the 2023 presidential election.
Onanuga said, “Peter Obi is just a social media creation. Our belief is that with the election about five months away, he will fade out.”
On claims that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, will be betrayed by the north, he said:
“I don’t know why some people have stereotypes about the North. Don’t cast them in the image that they are not. This is the same North as in 1993, when the son of the soil, Tofa, under the NRC, challenged him, but late MKO (Abiola) from Ogun State beat him in Kano and other northern states, excluding Adamawa.
“To say the North is supporting Atiku is to daydream. Don’t forget that Bola Tinubu is not just Bola Tinubu. He is Bola Tinubu of the APC. The APC is on the ground in all the states. We are stronger in the North than even in the South, and Tinubu is their candidate. We believe that they are going to stick with him and vote for him. Atiku is from Adamawa and may get some sympathy votes, but it won’t be enough to upstage Bola Tinubu. We are not afraid.”
