LP defends Peter Obi against alleged N2bn inducement to CAN

The Labour Party says that the allegation that its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, gave N2billion to the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) for the purpose of mobilising support of churches for his presidential run is false.

A petition circulating the social media and written by one Frank Onwumere, who is said to be a senior pastor at the “Dominion Centre International” in Okigwe, Imo state, purports that Obi gave the gratification to churches through CAN.

However, the Obi-Datti presidential campaign, in a statement on Sunday, said the petition was “concocted to tarnish the hard-earned reputation” of Obi.

The statement reads: “Our mission in the Obidient Movement this day is to alert and warn discerning minds, especially those desirous to see a new Nigeria emerge through Peter Obi, to ignore and treat as thrash any doctored and faked items on Obi. ”

“Anything they are bringing now after their long fruitless search is concocted to tarnish the hard-earned reputation of the candidate and should be disregarded.

“Obi-Datti Media is proud to insist that the LP standard bearer and his running mate remain the best product in the market for the much-needed political leadership in the country at this time. And to state without any fear of contradiction that they stand out untainted and possess the prerequisite qualities needed to rescue this troubled land.

“The public should therefore have their eyes permanently glued to the ball and refuse to be distracted by any antics because all the devious acts will give way to reason and justice and Nigeria will be successfully taken back from them and reset for greatness.”
