Peter Obi’s an Independent Candidate running under a Political Party – Aisha Yesufu

Popular female rights activist, Aisha Yesufu, has said that the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Mr. Peter Obi, could be likened to an independent candidate.

The activist noted that Mr. Obi was running under the Party because the Nigerian Constitution did not allow a politician contest as an independent candidate.

Speaking via Twitter, on Wednesday, Yesufu argued that what matters was that the Nigerian people were behind Mr. Obi, maintaining that the Labour Party was not the strength behind the former Anambra State governor.

She stated this while reacting to a tweet,  alleging that the Labour Party structure in Kwara state was being sabotaged.

She wrote: “I have repeatedly told everyone that Peter Obi is like an independent candidate that is running through a party because the law requires he does so. The party is not the strength of Peter Obi. The people are his strength!

“And as long as the people are with him that is all that matters. If you don’t sell out and I don’t sell out and other supporters do not sell out what does it matter whether some party members sell out? Are we not also getting other party members decamping in droves?”
