Anukanti added:

“The “Saboteur” tag on Igbo people by Ihedioha to a group of people who are legally seeking a national revolution through the ballot paper has further exposed Ihedioha as a career politician who is frightened by the OBIdent movement which is now the toast of the nation.
“If voting for Peter Obi a man who can unite this country, end poverty, revive our health sector, tackle the perennial infrastructural deficit, end ASUU strike, provide jobs for millions of unemployed graduates and skilled Nigerians encourage local productions is what Ihedioha referred as Saboteur, then we all are saboteurs."

Why Tinubu might be disqualified from participating in 2023 presidential election

In what can be described as a stunning turn of events, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, might be disqualified if the courts uphold the judgement of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja which nullified the nomination of Governor Isiaka Oyetola and his deputy governorship candidate, Benedict Alabi, for the 2022 Osun state governorship election.

According to the judgement by Justice Emeka Nwite, Governor Mai Mala Buni, who submitted their names to INEC, violated the provisions of Section 183 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Section 82(3) of the Electoral Act 2022.
