Festus Keyamo, the minister of state for labor and employment, has suggested that Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party (LP), might serve as a chariot for Atiku Abubakar, the candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
A trojan horse is someone or anything used to subvert or covertly overthrow an enemy or rival.
A few days prior to the PDP’s presidential primary, the former governor of Anambra State reportedly switched to the LP.
Keyamo said in an interview with Arise TV that the presidential candidates of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso and Peter Obi, enhance voter awareness throughout Nigeria.
Keyamo emphasized that Obi is a carpetbagger outside of the Southeast and might be a chariot for Atiku, though.
He added that the LP candidate might take his supporters in the wrong direction.
He continued by saying that according to demographic data from the All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, the party’s candidate, is far ahead of Atiku, Obi, and Kwankwaso.
He said: “Peter Obi, Kwankwaso brought colour into the campaign, and I admit they have raised some consciousness among the electorates, but outside the South-East, Peter Obi is a carpetbagger, and we suspect he may be a trojan horse for Atiku, and we want to warn his supporters that he may be leading them to nowhere.
“We will not see a run-off during the election; we have done our demographics and Tinubu is far ahead of other candidates.
“Peter Obi and Kwankwaso will do well, and I praise them for what they are doing. But we have done our demographics, and the election is between Tinubu and a distant second place Atiku”
