Singer Peter Okoye, professionally known as Mr P, is a staunch supporter of presidential aspirant Peter Obi and has tackled Dele Momodu over his recent comments on the Labour Party flagbearer.
Momodu made an appearance on TVC's Your View on Tuesday and stated that Peter Obi could not win the 2023 presidential election in a local party like the Labour Party.
The Ovation Magazine boss is of the opinion that Obi would need to fund the party because the party is not financially buoyant and Nigerians do not make contributions.
"For me, the two of the best that were in the PDP were myself and Peter Obi and he had absconded. I was in Labour, I started my journey from Labour.
"The first thing Obi will face in Labour is to fund the party because the party does not have money and Nigerians don’t make contributions.
"After I lost the first ten million, I started shaking because they said they were setting up a structure. You cannot win a presidential election from a fringed local party like Labour.
"Peter Obi has money unlike me but can he spend his hard-earned money on fighting Atiku and Tinubu if he emerges the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Party. He can’t", Momodu stated.
Responding to Momodu's words, Mr P in a tweet said that Obi may not have the financial ability that the Labour Party needs but he has the support of the youths in the country.
The singer said that the outcome of the 2023 election will be determined by the masses and not delegates.
"With all due Respect Sir Mr Dele Momodu! Yes, Peter Obi might not have the money and structure! But he has the Youths, The Masses and The People now!.
"The truth is that we the people are the structure. We are many and we are powerful. We are Obi-dient. We can not be distracted", he said.
