Asari Dokubo Attack Peter Obi’s Presidential Bid
In a post shared on Facebook via his Dokubo Asari Justice Foundation page, the ex-militant leader said the former Anambra governor is “the new scam in town” deceiving Nigerians with lies.
According to him, Peter Obi “is going nowhere” because he can’t contend at the polls against his counterparts from the All Progressives Congress (APC), and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) — Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar, respectively.
Dokubo also downplayed Obi’s achievements as a governor, saying the money he saved was child’s play to what Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike spends in the state.
He said: “There is a scammer in town. Peter Obi is a scamming people with lies and people are believing him. This is nauseating. Peter Obi was a governor of Anambra state for eight years.
“Anambra State is one of the advantageous states in Nigeria because of the people. They have Onitsha, Awka, Nnewi. These are the biggest goldmines in Nigeria after Lagos, Port Harcourt and Aba.
“They said he saved seventy-something billion. What is seventy-something billion? The money that Wike toys with in Rivers.
“How would you compare Obi with Tinubu or Atiku? What is his antecedent? Lies. You are showing documents. Who showed that you rejected the lands? All these small small [sic] scams, who dem wan do naw [sic]?”
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) have declared their support for the presidential aspiration of Peter Obi.
