The immediate past chairman of the governing board, Niger Delta Development Commission, Lauretta Onochie, has stated that the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, will “never be declared” the president of Nigeria.
Onochie made the statement on Wednesday sequel to Obi’s press conference during which he challenged President Bola Tinubu to reveal his true identity.
Obi, on Wednesday, had asked Tibunu to reveal his true identity to Nigerians, amidst the academic records saga of the president at the Chicago State University.
However, in a series of tweets posted via her profile on X (formerly Twitter), the former NDDC board chairman wrote, “Go home, Peter. You will never be declared president of our great nation. Apart from the simple fact that you came a distant third, you don’t deserve to lead our nation. Your temperament and disposition are not the attributes needed to lead a diverse nation such as Nigeria.”
She lamented that under his (Obi’s) watch, the south-east became a “war zone,” and the economy and property of residents were destroyed.
“You failed Anambra. You can’t even lead the South-east! Under your nose, the South-east became a war zone. A once vibrant economy built on hard work was destroyed. Lives and properties are ruined. Shelf your desperation. Your ambition is beyond what you deserve. It will never come to pass.”
Onochie criticised the former Anambra State governor’s media address on the identity of Tinubu, labelling the move as the “most idiotic request.”
She also berated why Obi would question Tinubu, who, having served as a two-term governor of Lagos State, was cleared of security checks.
