Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, representing Enugu East Senatorial District in the National Assembly, has lashed out at ‘Obidients’, supporters of Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate Peter Obi, describing them as noise makers.
Nnamani alleged that Obidients are less than 0.25 per cent of the 200 million Nigerian population.
The former Enugu State governor stated this while reacting to lots of backlash for saying “bye bye for Obidient” and vowing not to allow the Labour Party to win any political office in Enugu State,
The federal lawmaker was attacked on Facebook and Twitter for asking supporters to dump Labour Party ahead of the 2023 elections.
Reacting to the backlash, Nnamani said that his followers belong to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and that they cannot labour for another party to inherit.
He disclosed this in a fresh post on his verified Facebook page,
He wrote, “There is no Obidient PARTY! The name is LABOUR Party. A political party with candidates in all offices, including governorship.
“Our party and platform is different and that is PDP. FACT If we blur the distinction and foolishly vote Obidient that is Labour Party for President?
“For the minority ELITES it is easy to reverse 2 weeks later! For the majority over 98percent that is major “confuse “as they say on the Streets” Confuse Yamaru” as Umu Asadu will put it!
“Remember these advocates are Noisy, Loud, Intolerant, Proselytizers, Condescending but less than 0.25percent of our 200 million population. That is a generous guess of those propagandists controlling the NARRATIVE. Only a narrative.
“If Obidient is Peter Obi only why field candidates in other offices? Why do we establish foundation and beach head for Labour Party? In battle do you give invaders your beach head to Land (please forgive my war analogy, for want of more graphic example) and now seek to drive them away? ebeanoFAM answer my question. The answer is blowing in the wind”.
