- Maverick entertainer, broadcaster and activist, Charles Oputa, also known as Charly Boy has expressed his opinion on the presidential bid of Labour Party's candidate Peter Obi
- Charly Boy said Peter Obi is a major contender for the Aso Rock seat but will be facing a series of powerful forces going into the election
- He however did not play down the chances of the former Anambra state governor, stating that he could be the answer to the plight of Nigerians
Nigeria’s AreaFada, also known as Charlyboy has said he is afraid for the popular Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, saying that the former Anambra State Governor is in a race against some evil and manipulative people.
In a chat with Legit.ng, the enigmatic Charlyboy dismissed opinions about Labour Party’s structure affecting Obi’s chances, arguing that the people are his structure.
In what appeared like a 2023 permutation, the AreaFada said Obi could be the answer to Nigeria’s prayers because the people are united in frustration, poverty, and hopelessness.
He said he is not sure what will happen yet because the former Anambra State Governor cannot go the line of treachery like those he is in the race with.

Charlyboy addresses Labour Party’s structure, Peter Obi’s chances
Speaking on Labour Party’s structure, he said:
“Peter Obi is not going to win or lose based on structure or no structure. We are the structure. And our frustration has gotten to a point where we are united in frustration, hunger, and hopelessness. So that alone is a structure on its own.
But I’m just saying that Obi cannot be treacherous like these people who have Nigeria in their pockets, these people who believe that they are master planners and know how to manipulate things and kill people if they don’t have their way.
Obi cannot go to the gutters with them. He cannot fight these evil people. This is the reason I’m afraid for him. Not because of structure. Forget that one.”
Charlyboy optimistic of a revolution
Expressing hope, Charlyboy said:
“The things that will happen will surprise you and me. This is because if God is going to answer the prayers of poverty-stricken Nigerians at the end of the day, he will definitely use someone.
"It will confuse you and me right now, but what I’m sure will come out of the whole thing is a revolution of some sort, whether it’s a mental or physical one. “
Charlyboy queries other presidential candidates
In what appears like a troll on other presidential candidates, Charlyboy said:
“How can someone who is supposed to be running for a national election to take charge of the entire country be parading himself with “it’s my turn?’’ That’s their only language. What is that? That is the ‘bull-sh*t’ we have been hearing. Then the other one is neither here nor there. That’s the same bull-sh*t.
“What’s even making Peter Obi to look like ‘God-sent’ is because his talk is different. He is not forming. He is just being himself. And because Nigerians have had enough of people talking anyhow as if we are all fools, Obi is making sense. This one goes beyond Peter Obi. But I’m worried on his behalf because the people he is dealing with are all evil. They are demonic, and he is not evil or demonic. So how can he match them in that aspect?
“But I’m hoping that people who have taken up his fight and using his name will see him as God-sent and remain dogged in their fight. When God wants to do something, he will do it through someone.”
