Jack Obinyan, a former assistant to Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki, on Monday said he finds it “weird” that Igbo people are explaining why they are supporting Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP).
Newsbreak reports that according to Obinyan, there was no need to give reasons for supporting Obi because of all the presidential flagbearers, the former Anambra State governor “is the best candidate for Nigeria at this time”.
“I find it weird that Igbos are explaining why they are supporting one of their own, what are you explaining nitori Olorun?” Obinyan wrote on his verified Facebook page.
“When Hausas are supporting their own, who do they explain to?
“When Yorubas are supporting their own, who do they explain to?
“You supported, OBJ, supported Yar’Adua, supported GEJ, supported Atiku and now you are supporting Obi…You owe nobody explanation, you have tried your best.
“…And we all know that your support for Obi is simply based on competence, equity, fairness, gentle man’s agreement on rotation of power and in the general interest of Nigeria
“Please stop the explanation already, Obi is the best candidate for Nigeria at this time.”
