The federal lawmaker representing Enugu East, Sen. Chimaroke Nnamani has called on the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the last election, Peter Obi to withdraw his petition against the President-Elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Nnamani, who made the call in a series of tweets on Sunday, asked Peter Obi to align with Tinubu in the task of making Nigeria a new nation.
According to him, Obi has neither spread nor national appeal to win the presidential election and his case is dead on arrival.
He pointed out that what Obi is doing with his petition is “bad belle, petulance and demarketing Tinubu.
‘His petition is dead on arrival. He does not have the spread or national appeal. His appeal to non-electoral matters is to demarket the President-elect and besmirch his reputation’.
‘He does not have near spread and national appeal. His petition is ego-driven, a joke carried too far. His attempt to highlight non-electoral issues is trying to embarrass the President-elect.’
He added that Peter Obi should come down from his high horse to allow sedate minds to negotiate on behalf of the Igbo and South East for a safe landing.
The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the just concluded elections, Peter Obi has appealed to Muslims not to allow politics to divide Nigeria irrespective of tribe and religion because as he puts it Nigeria is one.
Obi who made this known when he visited the Muslim faithful at Central Mosque, Onitsha, Anambra State on Sunday, said that the only thing that always brought segregation among Nigerians was politics, especially as played by some politicians in the country, who want to sow seed of discord, just to win the election.
He noted that he visited Muslims in the city to felicitate with them on the celebration of Eid-el-Fitr.
Obi donated bags of rice, cartons of noodles, and packs of soft drinks to them while praying Allah to accept their fasting and sacrifices and grant them a good life.
