Peter Obi’s “Obidient” Movement Mere Euphoria, Can’t Win Election — Dino Melaye (Video)
…Peter Obi is A Fantastic Nigerian But It is Not Yet His Time To Be President of Nigeria
The spokesperson of the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Organisation, Dino Melaye, has described the political movement of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, as a mere “euphoria” that cannot win an election, IGBERETV reports.
Mr Melaye stated this on Friday during an interview on “Politics Today”, a programme on Channels Television.
He said Peter Obi is a fantastic Nigerian whom he respects but said it is not yet time for Peter Obi to become president.
He said Peter Obi lacks what it takes to unify the country. He stated that Atiku Abubakar can unify the country because Atiku has been tested, trusted and accepted in all the geopolitical zones of the country.

No one will see him as a religious bigot, nobody will see him as a tribalist, and nobody will see him as an ethnic jingoist, even those of us around him. All those things you see are euphoria.
“What is the followership of Obi on social media? Even those people making the imaginary noise don’t follow Obi on social media. Go to Twitter, go to Instagram, and check his handle.
“We have seen it before in this country, Gani Faweyinmi once ran for the president of this country, Facebook went agog, at the end of the day he got 1,400 votes. Femi Falana ran for governor. He is known, Read More
