NewsNigeria ElectionsPurported Between Obi, Atiku Is False-Okupe

The purported agreement between Labour Party (LP) Presidential candidate Peter Obi and his counterpart of PDP Atiku Abubakar has been described as wishful thinking.

Labour Party (LP) chieftain, Doyin Okupe in a statement on Wednesday said the speculation about a deal involving the LP and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidates was false without any iota of truth.

He advised the public to ignore the “cheap, self-serving and distracting propaganda, which we believe is not coming from the Atiku camp”.

Okupe wonders why the former Anambra governor will negotiate “with other less popular candidates or their parties,” noting that the massive support for Obi by Nigerians home and abroad shows he is far ahead of his opponents.

The statement read in part: “It is evident that the political fortunes and followership of the other parties diminish and recede like a drying lake in the scorching heat of an arid desert.

 “Our compelling commitment and promise are to move Nigeria from consumption to production”.

He stressed that the Obedient movement gathers more and more electorates on an hourly basis,” adding that the Obi-Datti Campaign Organisation remains focused to take back Nigeria and hand it over to the youths to secure their future.
