2023 presidency: Peter Obi, Baba-Ahmed have nothing to offer – Adegboruwa

Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, a lawyer, is unimpressed with the Peter Obi-Baba-Ahmed candidacy, Charmingpro reports.

The former governor and lawmaker is running for president of the Labour Party (LP) in 2023.

Adegboruwa called them “usurpers with no legitimate party or structure” in a statement.

He claimed they were no different from Atiku Abubakar and Bola Tinubu, candidates for the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Obi and Baba-Ahmed, according to the Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), used their financial clout “to corner a ticket meant for genuine representatives of the working class.”

He accused the candidates of using questionable statistics and “gathering a mob support without ideology other than rage against the status quo.”

“Aside from ethnic and religious sentiments, what does Peter Obi offer or represent in modern-day Nigeria?”

“Were these not the same factors that led to the Buhari regime’s error?” Are we not to evaluate candidates based on their track records?”

Adegboruwa also questioned the source of Obi’s 8-year journey in Anambra State.

According to the SAN, after the heinous murder of Harira Jibril in Anambra, Obi did not visit the family or issue a condemnation statement.

“Do we now hand over Nigeria to opportunists or commercial degree inventors?” the rights activist joked.

He added that if the PDP’s umbrella had covered Obi, he would not have emerged as the LP’s “disgruntled representative.”

Adegboruwa also chastised the LP’s promoters, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), for failing to engage in meaningful struggle since the APC’s election victory.

“I see no benefit for Nigeria in the Obi/Baba-Ahmed stillborn ticket, nor do I see any discernible difference between Atiku, Obi, and Tinubu.”

According to the statement, a disgruntled or frustrated member of the oligarchy is worse than his masters.
