A group known as the Progressive Ambassadors for APC project has described Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Peter Obi, standard bearer of the Labour Party (LP), as “birds of the same feather”.
Addressing a press conference in Abuja on Friday, Ikechukwu Norbet, the group’s national coordinator, said Abubakar and Obi are “desperate” to lead the country.
Norbert said Nigerians should be weary of desperate leaders.
“We know Atiku, he has been contesting since 1999. I think he is desperate to become the president – Nigerians should watch out for him,” the coordinator said.
We don’t want such a person to oversee the affairs of Nigeria. Tinubu has the capacity to deliver and win in any zone, even in the north-east.
“We are not afraid of Obi. He is a bird of the same feather as Atiku. They are desperate politicians jumping from one party to another. Obi is a smaller case for us because politics is not played in social media. We call him a social media president.”
Norbert said Nigerians should move away from the Muslim-Muslim ticket conversion and focus on who is competent to lead the country.
