2023: Group Tells Arthur Eze That Peter Obi Won’t Step Down

The oil baron Prince Arthur Eze has come under fire from an organization called Diasporans for Good Governance (DGG) for urging the Labor Party’s (LP) Mr. Peter Obi to give up his bid for the presidency while maintaining that the LP candidate will not withdraw from the race.

On Christmas Eve, Prince Arthur Eze reportedly informed traditional leaders and women’s organizations at his Ukpo country residence that Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, the governor of the Anambra State, and not Obi, is the anticipated Igbo president of Nigeria.

Leaders of the group Sir Johnny Obika, Dr. Ben Opara, Barr. Franklin Nwakor, Mike Okaka, and Amb. Camillus Konkwo stated in a statement yesterday that the wealthy businessman had no moral justification for asking Obi to get out of the race or any political relevance, claiming that Peter Obi’s candidacy embodies the highest standards of ability, capability, honesty, and political decency.

They contend that Arthur Eze stands for the previous regime that had ruled Nigeria.

Their statement reads: “As a private citizen, Eze is entitled to his choice of candidate. He however does not have any moral grounds to ask Peter Obi to withdraw from the race.

“When Peter Obi started talking about turning Nigeria from consumption to production, we knew that those who profit from Nigeria’s dysfunctional rentier system will fight hard to retain the status quo.

“The people have resolved to take their destiny into their hands and that is why the masses are flocking to Peter Obi who represents the new order and the light that will guide them out of darkness.

“It is only logical that some people will lament about the regime of light. Arthur Eze’s continued support for the PDP and APC only shows that he is a part of the political cabal.

“His latest attack on Obi is only an attempt to sustain the stranglehold on Nigeria, which they have turned into the poverty capital of the world.”

The group argued that the day when a select few wealthy people made decisions for the general populace was long gone and that because regular Nigerians had been forced to the brink for so long, they were now making their own decisions.

It asked Nigerians to vote for Peter Obi of the Labour Party regardless of party affiliation if they wanted to free themselves from the chains that had shackled them for a very long time.

Additionally, it urged Nigerians living abroad to reject the “political merchants of neo-imperialism, dehumanization, and mass poverty.”
