Pat Utomi, a former presidential aspirant, has claimed two former Heads of State are supporters of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi.
Utomi stated this while speaking at a town hall meeting on Friday, December 2, 2022, organised by the Yell Out Nigeria for Good Governance in Abuja.
He, however, did not reveal the names of the ex-Heads of State.
But Utomi noted that they were ready to work for Obi, to ensure he becomes the next president of Nigeria.
According to him, the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, don’t have strong structures like the LP.
“Money alone does not win elections. Two former heads of state have said to me they are Obidients.
“A lot of people want to join the movement without joining the Labour Party to ensure Peter Obi and Baba-Ahmed win, so they can capture our country back from those who have held us down.
“The LP has better structures than PDP and APC.
“Their structure is a criminal network of people who can fix elections. We have to stop that; that is not structure,” Utomi said.

‘Nigeria’s Problem Is Unqualified People In Government Positions’ – Peter Obi
Peter Obi, the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, has said the country is not progressing because unqualified persons hold several government positions.
Obi disclosed this on Saturday, November 19, 2022, via his verified Twitter handle.
The former Anambra State Governor noted that the development is creating setbacks for Nigeria in different forms.
Part of his tweet read, “We are all aware of the problems and the issues confronting us. Bad leaders. Insecurity. Corruption.
“Mismanagement of the economy. Incompetent people holding positions at different levels of government. Abject poverty in the midst of plenty.”
Obi lamented that people continue to make a mistake every four years by electing persons who make promises and then disappoint the people, saying it must not happen in 2023.
He added that Nigerians must seize the opportunity of the forthcoming election to effect a positive change in leadership.
