The  Obi-Datti Chief Spokesman, Dr. Yunusa Tanko, has reacted to claims by Mr. Calistus Okafor that the National Chairman of Labour Party, Julius Abure, gave the presidential candidate of the party, Peter Obi, eight hundred and fifty million Naira, (N850million) to prosecute the 2023 elections.

Tanko said Obi did not collect any funds from the party describing the claim as false, and that the reverse was the case. 

He  noted that it was Obi, who gave money to the party, andchallenged Okafor to produce evidence, if actually the chairman told him that he gave Obi money for the purpose of campaign during the election.

“His Excellency has  been exemplary in his financial conduct in both his private and public life. In fact, he always maintains and always demands accountability and transparency from anybody around him.

“He maintained that anybody around him should not collect any money from anyone that he or she cannot account for,”he said.

Tanko declared that he was in the forefront of the campaign and privy to most of the expenses during the campaign and to the best of his knowledge, the party never provided any money directly to Obi to support his campaign rallies across the country.

He further stressed that Obi and his supporters were quite aware of all the campaign of calumny being orchestrated lately from various quarters against the LP leader just to paint him in bad light by those scared of his rising acceptance by the Nigerian people.

“We are aware that people are already scheming for 2027 and it is unfortunate that certain individuals have chosen to divert attention from the high rate of insecurity and poverty that are currently threatening the very existence of our nation by constantly attacking the personality of Peter Obi.
