“The current structures of both the PDP and the APC are the stomach infrastructure that has brought us nothing but misery.”
“Their understanding of structure is sharing of Nigeria’s patrimony to vested interests and influence peddlers. That is against what Peter Obi represents; that is against what Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed represents; and it is indeed, against the vision of the Labour Party.”
Obi sends message to his supporters
He urged his supporters to remind the opposition that Nigeria’s democracy must survive after being dehumanised and disenfranchised by the ruling oligarchs.
