Tinubu’s Certificate Saga: ‘Stop Insulting Nigerians’ – Igbo Group Slams Peter Obi

An Igbo socio-political group, the Omalegwuoku Progressive Initiative, has berated the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, over his comments on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The group advised the former Governor of Anambra State to stop fooling himself and insulting Nigerians by challenging President Tinubu to come clean on his identity.

Global President of the group, Ambassador Ginika Tor, stated these at a news briefing on Wednesday in Abuja while reacting to the press conference earlier granted by Obi.

Tor, a Commissioner with the Federal Character Commission (FCC), said what the president owes Nigerians is to take them to the destination of progress and development and not speak on things that do not matter.

She said; “I had already put up my speech and suddenly I realized that my own brother who I respect so much, Peter Obi, who is also the Presidential Candidate of Labour party, came up on television to say that our president, a man who is the Number One man in this country should come out and explain his state. So, by now, a man who served eight years as a governor, you don’t know his state? He should tell us his background educationally? Is that right?

“It is an insult to Nigeria as a nation for you to call out our president who was massively supported, elected, confirmed and validated as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to come and stand before who? To say he is from this state, from this country, from this region, from this locality? Does he owe us that? What the President owes us now is to take us to our destination of choice.

“So, I am disappointed in a man who I respected so much, my brother, who stood in front to run for Igbos. It may not be his turn now, but it could come in future. But whatever he does now is going to play out in the future. So let us be cautious and let all Igbos not be misled by this press interview that our own brother granted.

“We are telling our brother, Obi, calm down, if God wanted you to be there, He would have made you the President. He did not. There is a lot of distraction on this President. Are you not bothered with the issues around the world?”
