Peter Obi And Labour Party Have Done Much To Deepen Nigeria’s Democracy – Reno Omokri
Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has hailed the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi for deepening Nigeria’s democracy.
Taking to his Instagram page, Omokri shared a photo of Donatus Matthew, a bike rider who was elected to the house of representative in Kaura Federal constituency of Southern Kaduna after contesting under the umbrella of the Labour Party.
Sharing the photo, the presidential aide lauded Peter Obi for making Mathew’s election possible, stressing that the development would attract more supporters to the party in the north.
Omokri wrote, “Under Labour Party, an okada rider Donatus Matthew won election to the House of Representative in Kaduna. This is democracy in its purest form. And for this, I thank Peter Obi and the Labour Party. Both of them have done much to deepen our democracy.”
He added, “I never envisaged that this could happen in Nigeria in the year 2023. In the future, perhaps I imagined it happening. But not now. If Labour continues this way, they will make Nigeria a more egalitarian society.
“This news will make Labour more acceptable in Kano, the centre of Northern egalitarianism, which is the utopian ideal that the late Aminu Kanu tried to build with the Talakawa through the Northern Elements Progressive Union, and later his Peoples Redemption Party.”
KanyiDaily recalls that Reno Omokri had claimed that nobody on earth, living or dead, has to his knowledge, politicised church attendance like Peter Obi.
