The former governor of Enugu state, senator Chimaroke Nnamani, asked the presidential candidate of Labour Party, advice Peter Obi to withdraw his petition against Bola Ahmed Tinubu the presidential-elect and join him in the task making a new nation.
Senator Chimaroke Nnamani urge Peter Obi and his supporters to align with the ebullience and conviviality of welcome Bola Tinubu’s victory to the office of president of the bestest black nation on earth.
Peter Obi has filed his petition to challenge the victory of Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the 25th February election.
Peter Obi, who came third in the election, filed his petition to challenge the outcome of the poll at the presidential election petition Court in Abuja where he alleged that the election was characterized by various irregularities including the non-qualification of the Bola Tinubu and his running mate, senator Kashim Shettima to contest the election.
Peter Obi also said that Bola Tinubu failed to win the majority of the lawful votes cast in the election, and just as he couldn’t secured one-quarter of the legal votes cast on the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
Chimaroke Nnamani, however, in the statement on Sunday said Peter Obi knows he has neither the spread nor national appeal to win the presidential election pointing out that Peter Obi is doing with his petition is “Bad Belle, petulance and demarketing.”
Chimaroke Nnamani said, ” His petition is dead arrival. He doesn’t has the spread or national appeal. His appeal to non-electoral matters is to de-market the president-elect and besmirch his reputation.
Because “His petition is ego-driven, the joke is too expensive. His attempt to highlight non-electoral issues is trying to embarrass the president-elect.”
Chimaroke Nnamani counselled, “Peter Obi need to come down from high hill to allow sedate minds to negotiate on half of the Igbo and South East for a safe landing to include our stake in the nation palaver and share of the accruals of the commonwealth.”
But according to Chimaroke Nnamani, “We must join the mainstream and participate in making a new Nigeria.” We aren’t going anyplace. We full ground and ready to bargain for our own share. Is common knowledge that others are doing the same.
“Igbo has to confront reality now or be consigned to the backwoods of history; because time to align is now.”
