FCT, Abuja - Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has reacted to the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi’s plan to go into a merger with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Omokri said the purported move by Obi further justifies Professor Wole Soyinka's earlier description of the ex-governor as someone "unfit to lead" Nigeria.

As reported by The Punch, Obi during an interview on NoireTV-GlobalBlackTV, said he is not desperate to be president, but noted "I’m desperate to see Nigeria work".

He said:

“It might be at the party level, it might be at the individual level, might be at any level, but we must come together to be able to build a better Nigeria.”

Reacting to Obi’s statement, Omokri posted a previous interview wherein the ex-governor said the PDP and the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) have structures of criminality and poverty.

Suggesting that the former Anambra state governor is not consistent, he wrote:

“No wonder Professor Wole Soyinka said Peter Obi is "unfit to lead".

APC reacts to Atiku, Obi’s purported alliance

In a related story, Legit.ng previously reported that the APC said Atiku and Obi cannot be trusted by Nigerians to tackle serious and complex challenges

The APC national publicity secretary, Felix Morka, said Atiku and Obi are united by their mutual desperation to become president of Nigeria.

He added that Obi's proposed return to the PDP would be hardly surprising as the former Anambra state governor has a reputation for being a political wayfarer while Atiku has a track record of being a veteran political wanderer.
