The vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ifeanyi Okowa, says Peter Obi cannot claim to be strange to the party.
Okowa said this on Sunday at a town hall meeting organized for presidential candidates by Arise Television.
While reacting to criticisms of the PDP by Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Okowa said Obi had paid glowing tributes to Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the PDP, in 2019 while he was his running mate.
“I’m aware that the PDP is very strong in the six geo-political zones and strong in all states,” Okowa said.
“That’s a statement of fact and we are busy campaigning to Nigerians based on our manifesto and the credibility of the persons who are on the ticket of the party.
“Secondly, the last time I checked, in 2019, I’m sure Peter Obi was the vice-presidential candidate to Atiku Abubakar and he paid a lot of tributes to Atiku Abubakar and the last time I checked, up till May 24, 2022, he was still an aspirant under the PDP.
“So, he cannot claim to be strange to the PDP or to the party. It is wrong to present that kind of situation to Nigerians and I think it is important to address issues the way they are.”
