In response to purported threats to his life by the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP) has requested that the Nigeria Police and the Department of State Services (DSS) invite Abayomi Arabambi, the party’s former national publicity secretary.
Recall that Arabambi had claimed that Kennedy Ahanotu, the National Youth Leader of the party, had threatened him on Obi’s orders.
The party, however, said in a joint statement by Umar Farouk, the national secretary, and Ahanotu, the national youth leader, that it would have ignored such unproven and baseless claims.
The statement said, “For the benefit of some members of the public, especially the Nigerian Youths who do not know the character called Arabambi, a serial blackmailer who will stop at nothing to call out our leader at any given time we see such baseless attempt to defame our principal and that of our National Youth Leader as a last kick of a dying horse.”
The party claimed that Arabambi was expelled because of his reputation for spreading misinformation, propaganda, and dishonesty.
Arabambi recently termed noble Nigerians who felt that justice must win the 2023 presidential election “Obi-idiots,” LP noted.
The party said: “Such description of hardworking Nigerian youths is an invitation to self-destruct. We have said time without number that the Peter Obi presidency is a Nigerian project.
“We are, however, challenging Arabambi to make public the said conversation he had with our national youth leader to prove the allegation of threat to life from our leaders.
“We want to restate that neither Obi nor any other person from Labour Party has or will ever contemplate to influence or stimulate any such response to Apapa from Nigerians who already knew that Apapa, Arabambi, and their cohorts have been heavily compromised to thwart the proceedings in the Tribunal.
“Peter Obi is known as a peace-loving man who never condones violence. As a governor of Anambra State, it is on record that his tenure witnessed the most peaceful era in that state. He is renowned to be the only governor in Nigeria who moved around without a bulletproof car. He ensured that brigandry, violence, or any form of political violence ceased in the state.”
