2023 Presidency: Peter Obi Replies Arthur Eze

Peter Obi, the presidential flag-bearer of the Labour Party for the 2023 election, on Tuesday said Anambra businessman Chief Arthur Eze “is part of the establishment and structure that young Nigerians what to take our country back from”.

Best News Network reports that Obi spoke through his spokesperson, Diran Onifade.

The Labour Party candidate described the ‘bitter’ comments ascribed to Eze concerning Obi as unfortunate but not unexpected.

Eze had said he told Obi to jettison his presidential ambition because he does not believe the former Anambra State governor can win in the 2023 election.

“It is the influence of people like that that we want to take our politics away from.

“He is part of the establishment and structure that young Nigerians what to take our country back from.

“When we take power from the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress, the likes of Arthur Eze will no longer wield the kind of influence they enjoy today.

“You don’t expect them to take this lying down. Our candidate and our campaign remain focused on the take ahead which is to take back our country, rebuild it to make it take its proper place in the comity of nations,” Vanguard quotes Onifade as saying.
