….Says poor political calculations by Melaye made him lose his senatorial seat to APC in 2019
All political index projections ahead of the 2023 Presidential Election have shown that Peter Obi is the man to beat.
Reacting to a video by Dino Melaye, the Obi-Datti Media office said that it is perhaps the poor political calculations by Melaye that made him lose his senatorial seat to APC in 2019 and to a small boy in the House of Representatives in his party’s primaries in 2022.
The statement further said that notwithstanding that his principal Atiku Abubakar who was scheduled for the program ran away and sent his Running mate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, Senator Melaye was not ashamed of the embarrassment caused by it but was still shamelessly throwing his nuisance about to be noticed by the highly disciplined Obi.
The statement read, “The fact that the Spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Presidential Candidate, Senator Dino Melaye could in his inordinate attitude provoke the highly peaceful and hard to annoy Labour Party Presidential flag bearer, Mr. Peter Obi shows clearly the level of his imprudence.
“At the Arise Television TownHall Meeting for Presidential Candidates on Sunday at Transcorp Hilton, Abuja, Senator Melaye was so unruly and disproportionately large that a hardly provoked LP standard bearer had to call him out publicly to the shame of the bully spokesman.
“Notwithstanding that his principal Atiku Abubakar who was scheduled for the program ran away and sent his Running mate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, Senator Melaye was not ashamed of the embarrassment caused by it but was still shamelessly throwing his nuisance about to be noticed by the highly disciplined Obi.
“Instead of ruminating on the dig on him from a cross-section of Nigerians for his recalcitrant behavior on Sunday, Melaye is claiming that the obidient family which has become the nightmare to his principal cannot win the election.
“According to him, the Obi supporters will burn out and by January 2023 it would be obvious that any vote for him is a vote for the ruling All Progressives Congress, presidential ticket holder Asiwaju Bola Ahmad Tinubu.
“We in the Obi-Datti Media office long realized that attack dogs made Mr. Peter Obi their principal target for relevance and retention of their job.
“If any right-thinking Nigerian especially a politician still thinks that Obi, the Labour Party Candidate is an underdog in the 2023 Presidential race, that person must be fantasizing and should be pitied.
“Even showing face at all with attendant ugly conduct at a function his Principal was missing, underscores the man who probably was hired purposely for nuisance than for good.
“Obi-Datti Media Office, therefore, needs to make it abundantly clear to Senator Melaye and other characters of his ilk that Mr. Peter Obi and the Labour Party are in the race to win and win convincingly.
“All political index projections ahead of 2023 show it that Obi is the man to beat.
It’s perhaps this type of poor political calculations by Melaye that made him lose his senatorial seat to APC in 2019 and to a small boy in the House of Representatives in his party’s primaries in 2022.
“What Peter Obi is out to do by trying to take back Nigeria with Nigerian youths is to ensure that political jokers like Melaye do not occupy spaces reserved for good heads for the uplifting of the nation’s democracy.
“Therefore, Obi-Datti’s media office needs to educate Senator Melaye properly that rather than Obi’s vote gifting any other political party in Nigeria, it should be stated very clearly that Nigerians are visibly tired of the two political parties and are copiously directing their votes to the fresh air in our polity which is Mr. Peter Obi.
“The man who by antecedents and qualifications is the man needed at this time to rescue and rebuild our beloved country.
