The Peter Obi Support Network has responded to the claim by Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, a Fulani Socio-Cultural Association, that the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, is being sponsored by the Indigenous People of Biafra.
Recall that the National Secretary of the Miyetti Allah group, Saleh Alhassan, had said Fulani men would not vote for Peter Obi in the coming election, saying that the candidate is sponsored by IPOB.
But the Director, Strategic Communication, POSN, Onwuasoanya Jones, while speaking on the development said several members of Miyetti Allah are already supporting the Labour Party candidate.
His words: “I do not know how that individual came about such conclusions, but what I can tell you is that the Peter Obi candidacy excites all classes of Nigerians, including millions of those who, for one reason or the other, are dissatisfied by the way Nigeria is being governed at the moment.
“In Peter Obi, they see a renewed reason to believe in a prosperous and equitable Nigeria.”
