Enugu, Nigeria. (VOICE OF NAIJA) – The Peter Obi Support Network (POSN) has raised an alarm over alleged plans to attack Peter Obi, the 2023 presidential candidate for Labour Party (LP).
In what the group described as ‘defeatist’, the antics of opposition presidential campaign organizations and their political parties, POSN also accused the opposition parties of outright distortion and mischievous misquoting of the former Anambra governor’s speeches in order to discredit him.
In a statement signed by Onwuasoanya Jones, the group’s Director of Strategic Communication, the group stated that oppositions are intimidated by Obi’s knowledgeability on statistics and information of world economy.
Jones noted that the resort to faking his speeches and attempts to put words in his mouth “is a strategy by the struggling opposition.”
POSN stressed that Obi does not gamble with figures and facts because he is a keen researcher and passionate seeker for solutions to Nigeria’s challenges.
The group added that Obi has continued to restructure the way politics is played by focusing on issues and presenting credible and workable data from developed, developing, and underdeveloped nations.
POSN mocked other 2023 candidates for “sitting lazily” while also declaring them incompetent and unprepared for the task of the presidency.
“We challenge these disgruntled “fact checkers” and their sponsors to provide any credible evidence of Peter Obi’s speeches where he gave out any of these wrong figures.” Jones said.
He expressed hope that the country can work again and that with the right leadership in place, Nigerians can regain their pride of nationhood.
