2023: Abaribe Faults Linkage Of Peter Obi To Biafra

Former Senate Minority Leader Enyinnaya Abaribe has criticised those linking Labour Party presidential flag bearer Peter Obi to the ongoing Biafra agitation.

Abaribe stated that such linkage was a smear campaign meant to de-market the former Anambra State Governor.

While speaking during a virtual town hall meeting organised by Ikengaonline, he emphasised that Peter Obi should be seen as someone pursuing his constitutionally-guaranteed rights.

Abaribe added that critics should stop linking Obi to his tribe and religion.

"It’s unfortunate that Peter Obi’s emergence which is now a silver lining has come with complications. Tinubu has a presidential ticket, nobody is saying it’s a Yoruba ticket.

"Atiku has a ticket, nobody is saying it’s a Fulani ticket. But Peter Obi got a ticket and everybody is shouting: ’It’s Igbo presidency. Some even try to link him with the Biafra agitation.

"Have they tried to associate Tinubu with the Oduduwa self-determination agitation? Or Atiku within the Fulani herdsmen menace or the banditry in the North?”
