A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Adamu Garba, on Wednesday said Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, “will never come close” to the presidency of Nigeria.
Garba’s fresh dig at Obi comes against the backdrop of Obi’s statement on Tuesday where he said he is “committed to transforming Nigeria, starting from the North”.
Reacting, Garba said the Labour Party candidate was “insulting” Northerners.
“We know you are insulting us, we the Northerners Mr. @PeterObi and we are assuring you that as far as Presidency of Nigeria is concerned, it shall remain in your illusionary dream forever.
“You’ll never come close to it. You bigoted, religious, ethnocentric merchant. You can go to Finland to contend with your new Biafra government in exile,” the APC chieftain wrote on his verified Twitter handle.
