Enugu, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Festus Keyamo, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment has described the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi as a carpetbagger.
He said that Obi may be a trojan horse for the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
The APC presidential campaign council spokesman made the claims while speaking with Arise News.
Keyamo expressed fear that Obi might lead his supporters to nowhere.
He said: “Peter Obi, Kwankwaso brought colour into the campaign, and I admit they have raised some consciousness among the electorates, but outside the South-East, Peter Obi is a carpetbagger, and we suspect he may be a trojan horse for Atiku, and we want to warn his supporters that he may be leading them to nowhere.”
Keyamo said that the APC’s demographics have shown that the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu is far ahead of Atiku and Obi.
“We will not see a run-off during the election; we have done our demographics and Tinubu is far ahead of other candidates.
“Peter Obi and Kwankwaso will do well, and I praise them for what they are doing. But we have done our demographics, and the election is between Tinubu and a distant second place Atiku,” he added.
