Deji Adeyanju, a human rights activist and former head of new media for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the frequent church visits of Labour Party’s presidential flag bearer, Mr. Peter Obi.
As reported by the Daily Independent newspaper, Mr. Adeyanju described Obi’s strategy as the ‘most unintelligent move’ for his political campaign.
He stated that the Labour Party’s standard bearer ought to be on the peddle of reaching out to the grassroots at the 774 local governments of the federation and not the Church.

“Obi moving around churches and expecting them to serve as political structures for him in February instead of just simply going round the 774 LGAs to build like most political parties do, is the most unintelligent move I have ever seen.
“He was in a church in Benue yesterday again. Almost 3-months after party primaries, they are yet to start building LGA party structures anywhere in Nigeria. They are only interested in social media noise and 1-million March wey no reach 2k.”
