The Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has come under fire from a top APC official for allegedly splitting the electorate along religious lines as the presidential elections approach, particularly in the Northern area.


NewsReport gathered that in a string of tweets published on Tuesday, Adamu made this accusation while cautioning the former governor of Anambra State that he was engaging in highly risky behavior.

He claimed that Olusegun Obasanjo, a former president, had played this game for a very long period.

Garba further asserted that Obi cannot separate the North’s United Muslim and Christian jurisdictions.

He tweeted, “Peter Obi is playing a dangerous religious game in the North.” All his recent northern tours are targeted at predominantly Christian areas. He needs to know that he cannot export his IPOB games to the North.

“The North is a Muslim and Christian domain.” He can’t divide us.
“He and his cohorts, in addition to his collaborators, cannot set us against one another.” This has been Obasanjo’s game for a long time.

“He tried it for 8 years and could not succeed; he attempted to use Jonathan but failed.” Now it is Peter Obi; we know that and we won’t accept this.

“If you want to be president, go everywhere.” But we were paying attention to whatever game Obi was playing.

“He went to Kano, visited Sabon Gari without paying homage to Emirs; went to Kaduna, neglected the Emir of Zazzau; went to Yola; didn’t visit Lamido or Mubi Emir.This has been the trend. Divisions!

“Peter Obi is pushing a very dangerous agenda that is capable of affecting the whole country.” We can’t allow that to happen.

“Nigerians need to see the games in plain sight.” This is a very bad precedent.

“He is working to divide Muslims and Christians.” It is not acceptable.

Earlier in January, Daniel Bwala, spokesman for the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, accused Obi of inflaming the polity ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Bwala made this allegation during an interview on AriseTV, alleging that Obi focuses on the Christian bloc, which might boomerang on his ambitions to the benefit of the People’s Democratic Party.

During the Yuletide, Obi was pictured visiting various Christian crusades in order to garner the votes needed to achieve his ambition of being Nigeria’s president.

In his interview, Bwala revealed that these moves by Obi had inflamed his northern Christian supporters, who would vote for the People’s Democratic Party in retaliation.
