Labour Party says the ruling All Progressives Congress has become jittery and apprehensive over the massive support Nigerians have been showing its presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
LP said the indications had become clear that its presidential flagbearer, Obi would disgrace the ruling APC out of office in 2023.
The party said this in its response to the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, who also doubles as the spokesman of the APC Presidential Campaign.
Keyamo had said, “We told the obedient soldiers that their hero was taking them to nowhere; taking them for a ride of the century and political 419! We laugh! We are ahead of them!”
But in a swift response on Saturday, the LP National Publicity Secretary, Comrade Arabambi Abayomi, in a statement, said Nigerians have lost confidence in the incompetent APC-led government.
The LP spokesman’s statement read, “The ‘Obidients’ are set to disgrace the directionless APC electorally. Festus Keyamo’s infantile outburst is a direct proof and sign of the current fear of Peter Obi’s electrifying mass support all across the nation by the APC that is jittery and troubled by the emerging picture of LP’s landslide electoral victory in 2023.
“The facts visible on the ground in the nation’s political space clearly and unambiguously signposts the irreversible resolve of the voting public to take back their country and away from the confused, jittery and directionless APC that has for close to 8 years of very deadly insecurity and incompetent rule over this over abused nation.
“Yes, the APC is about to fall into political doom and extinction. Festus Keyamo and his politically crippled APC should remain jittery.”
