A former governor and current federal lawmaker representing Enugu East, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani has advised the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the February 25, 2023 election, Peter Obi, to withdraw his petition against the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and stop wasting his time.
In a series of tweets today, April 23, Nnamani said: “he (Peter Obi) does not have near spread and national appeal. His petition is ego-driven, a joke carried too far. His attempt to highlight non electoral issues is trying to embarrass the President-elect.”
He asked Peter Obi to come down from his high horse to allow sedate minds to negotiate on behalf of the Igbo and South East for safe landing.
He insisted that Obi did not gather enough votes across the six geographical zones of the country to win the presidential election and that his case is dead on arrival.
According to Nnamani, what Obi is doing with his petition is “bad belle, petulance and demarketing Tinubu.
“His petition is dead on arrival. He does not have the spread or national appeal. His appeal to non-electoral matters is to demarket the President-elect and besmirch his reputation.”
