Former Enugu state governor, Chimaroke Nnamani, says the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, set the Igbo political trajectory back by 24 years through his “dangerous” style of politicking.
The senator who lost his senatorial return bid to the Labour Party’s candidate, Kelvin Chukwu, the sibling of the slain candidate, Oyibo Chukwu, on Sunday evening, also accused Obi of playing wicked and dangerous politics.
Nnamani made this known via his official Twitter account (@ChimarokeNnamani) on Monday.
He said, “Peter “Gringory” Obi has set the Igbo political trajectory 24 years back. He has become a twin Blight & Scourge on the Land. His devious Opium served to Christians within sections of Nigeria and to Igbo domiciled in different sections of Nigeria is wicked and dangerous.”
The former governor of Enugu State had been caught in a web of controversy by endorsing the candidacy of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress who later emerged as the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, against the candidacy of the PDP’s Atiku Abubakar.
Though Nnamani was suspended by the leadership of the PDP, the former governor insisted that he was still a member of the party and dragged the PDP, national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu and other officials of the party to court.
Days later, the party announced his expulsion.
