Obi Support Group Slams Tinubu, Atiku Over Campaign Strategies
The Peter Obi Support Network has berated Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar over the utterances made by their campaign organisations.
Ezenwoko’s Blog reports that the network stated this in a statement issued on Friday and signed by its spokesman, Sani Altukry.
The group accused the campaign organisations of the presidential candidates of All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of causing division with their utterances.
It advised the APC and PDP to focus on the plans to rescue the country from the path of the precipice that it was heading, rather than concentrate on irrelevant issues.
The group also urged the two parties to stop polarising the country along ethnic and religious fault lines with their divisive utterances. It wondered how the two candidates would unite Nigerians after dividing them if they eventually win the election.
It, however, asked Nigerians to rally around the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to rescue Nigeria from total collapse.
The statement reads: “Mr Peter Obi is using a campaign to unite. His preaching, teaching and messages of hope have made many Nigerians to start seeing their Hausa, Yoruba and Fulani neighbours as brothers and Nigeria as their only country which must be repaired and made habitable by them. It is happening before the eyes of everyone.
“But Tinubu and Atiku camps are using divide and rule approach as their campaign strategy. Because of Atiku and Tinubu’s blunders, Nigeria has been divided far much more into religious and tribal lines than ever before. The same mistake was made by President Muhammadu Buhari.
“When you divide the people in order to win the presidential election, how will you be able to rule the already divided people when you finally become the president.”
