Peter Obi introduced two dangerous things into politics – Presidency

The Presidency has accused the 2023 Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi, of introducing “two dangerous things” into Nigerian politics in the last elections.

President Bola Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga, accused Obi of flaming religion and ethnicity during the last elections in Nigeria.

Onanuga declared that Tinubu’s administration is not focused or concerned with Obi and his followers, the Obidients.

Featuring on Mic On with Seun Okinbaloye, the presidential aide assured that Tinubu’s administration remained focused and undistracted.

He said: “As of now, we are busy with governance and we don’t want our attention diverted from the focus of what the government is trying to do. We are very busy, we’re not even looking at them now.

What I know about the campaign of Obi was that for the first time in a very long while in our country, we had a candidate who was inflaming ethnic passion and that was the way the election went at that time, he was inflaming ethnic and religious passions, bringing two dangerous things to our politics: ethnicity and religion.

That was what he did and those things were dangerous to our politics.”
