The Labour Party has reacted to the challenge Festus Keyamo threw at Peter Obi’s son, to lead a rally in Anambra like Seyi Tinubu did in Lagos .
Naija News NG reports that the Obi Datti Campaign Council in a statement said the family of Peter Obi are not the ones contesting for President, they are doing meaningful things with their lives and staying away from the treasury of the state.
The Campaign Council went further to say, “Unlike Tinubu and his household, who have grown to be stupendously wealthy with no identifiable industry or means of making money outside the state government for over two decades, Obi is not like that.”
Peter Obi’s campaign, in a statement on Tuesday, said the only thing that joins him and Tinubu is that they were once governors of states in Nigeria, “after that one became a parasite to the state government he served with his entire family while the other left government house and he and any members of his family never collected a dime from Anambra state.”
The campaign said: “Unlike Tinubu and his household, who have grown to be stupendously wealthy with no identifiable industry or means of making money outside the state government for over two decades, Obi is not like that.
“If Keyamo had taken time to study the family he speaks for very well; he would have avoided this comparison that is bound to expose the parasitic life of his Principal and understand why the entire household is headlong in the campaign.
“The other time Tinubu’s wife, Senator Remi, was threatening fire and brimstone over Lagos, then the daughter and now the son is showing off with rally. Do you blame people struggling to keep a family business? The Tinubu family has cornered the commonwealth of Lagos state, which they now run as a family enterprise.
“Obi’s family is not part of his politics. They are running their lives, contributing to development without nearing public funds.”
The Obi-Datti campaign organizations stated that it was the former Anambra governor that is seeking to govern Nigeria, not any other member of his family.
“He has said repeatedly that Nigerians must reject anybody desiring to be President by proxy,” the statement said.
