He stated that Obi has been deceptive thus far and vowed to expose the former Anambra governor. However, Apapa failed to specify the nature of the revelation concerning the LP’s standard-bearer.

He said, “On Peter Obi taking sides, I don’t want to expose him, but he deserves to be exposed. Sometime ago, in one of the interviews he (Obi) granted, he said he does not know me at all.

“I have been trying to cover him, but he does not deserve it. The reasons are this: This is a man, during his primary in Asaba, I did the opening prayer. And I was not a young officer. I was the deputy national chairman of the party. I have been 21 years in this party. I have held a lot of positions in this party to the level I am today.

“Obi’s first campaign started in Benin. I was in Benin with him. And we used his aircraft from Benin back to Abuja–chartered plane. Not only that, when he came to Ekiti (Afe Babalola University), I led the team that hosted him in that campus. We were there for over two hours. I led the team to the palace. And he doesn’t know me?”

Apart from money, what else does he (Obi) have that I don’t have?,” Apapa queried.

The embattled LP factional chairman accused Obi of refusing to respect the court order that suspended the Julius Abure-led executives of the party.

He concluded his statement by expressing his discontent towards the “young chap” who forcefully removed his cap at the court, directing expletives at him.

KanyiDaily recalls that Lamidi Apapa had claimed that Peter Obi is not qualified to rule Nigeria because the presidential candidate does not respect court order.
