Tea presidential campaign council of the Labor Party (LP) has accused ‘the powers that be’ of founding a obi-tooth plane before the party’s presidential rally in the ancient city of Ibadan in Oyo state.
A statement issued Wednesday by Obi-Datti Campaign Media Chief Diran Onifade said the plane was grounded for regulatory reasons only.
However, Onifade urged party supporters to ignore the ‘mischievous rumour’ that the aircraft had been seized.
- “The Obi-dient plane was grounded today by the powers that be ‘for regulatory reasons only’. Please ignore any malicious rumors. Our mass rally in Ibadan is going ahead as planned.” said the brief statement.
The Ibadan Rally: Obi later arrived in Ibadan for the rally where he was greeted by a large crowd of supporters. As a leading candidate for next year’s election, he has the support of many young Nigerians and is also making a splash on social media.
While observers say his party does not have a structure to challenge the country’s main political parties, the People’s Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress (APC), the former Anambra state governor argues that millions of poor and dissatisfied are their support base.
The backstory: Naijaonpoint learned that Peter Obi and his entourage were on their way to the Oyo state capital from the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja when the incident occurred.
