Socio-political activist, Reno Omokri, has said that Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate Peter Obi may help his All Progressives Congress, APC, counterpart, Bola Tinubu win the presidential election in 2023.
Omokri described Obi as a “Father Christmas” gift, noting that Obi will split the votes meant for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
In a series of tweets, the former presidential aide asserted that Obi knows he cannot win in 2023, ruing his participating in the race as an abettor of Tinubu’s chances of emerging president.
He wrote: “Without Obi in the race, Bola Tinubu would have had absolutely no chance. Peter Obi is not the Southeast’s chance. He is Tinubu’s chance!
“He has helped Tinubu level the real race, which is between him and Atiku. For Tinubu, Obi is the best early Christmas gift ever!
“Obi can’t win in 2023. He knows it. I know it.”
