Former-aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has said that President-elect, Bola Tinubu deceived Labour Party Presidential candidate, Peter Obi into contesting, knowing that to reduce opposition votes.
Omokri said the Obi had no path to victory because he lacked national support but could divide Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) votes.
According to him, Tinubu used his trusted business partners to deceive Obi into joining the presidential race.
Omokri spoke further that Tinubu displayed mastery in understanding the mentality of the Obidients, who he said lacked the humility to see that they were being played.
“Peter Obi had no path to victory. He lacked national spread. Tinubu knew that. But he used his trusted business partner, who likes to dance publicly with him, to deceive Obi into contesting, knowing that that was the only way to reduce PDP’s numbers.
“And more importantly, Tinubu displayed mastery in understanding the mentality of the average Obidient. He knew they lacked the humility to see that they were being played!
“And it is not yet over. In places like Kaduna, the APC is using the same strategy. They cannot win on their own. So, they are funding the Labour gubernatorial campaign, knowing that Southern Kaduna people will emotionally vote Labour and divide PDP’s votes,” Omokri said on his social media handles.
