The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo has said the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi may be a trojan horse for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) flagbearer, Atiku Abubakar.
A trojan horse is a person or thing intended to undermine or secretly overthrow an enemy or opponent.
HausaToday recalls that the former Governor of Anambra State had defected from PDP to LP a few days before their presidential primary.
In an interview with Arise TV, Keyamo admitted that Peter Obi and New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso raise the consciousness of electorates across Nigeria.
However, Keyamo stressed that Obi is a carpetbagger outside the Southeast and maybe a trojan horse for Atiku.
He further warned that the LP candidate might lead his supporters to nowhere.
He added that the All Progressive Congress (APC) demographics have shown that the party’s candidate Bola Tinubu 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”
