The Presidency has made allegations against Peter Obi, the 2023 Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, claiming that he introduced “two dangerous things” into Nigerian politics during the recent elections.

Bayo Onanuga, President Bola Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, stated this on Monday, accusing Obi of igniting religious and ethnic tensions during the recent elections in Nigeria.

Onanuga alleges that Obi’s actions had a divisive impact on the political landscape.

Onanuga further declared that Tinubu’s administration is not focused or concerned with Obi and his followers, the Obidients.

During an appearance on Mic On with Seun Okinbaloye, the presidential aide expressed confidence that Tinubu’s administration is maintaining its focus and not getting distracted.

He said: “As of now, we are busy with governance and we don’t want our attention diverted from the focus of what the government is trying to do. We are very busy, we’re not even looking at them now.

“What I know about the campaign of Obi was that for the first time in a very long while in our country, we had a candidate who was inflaming ethnic passion and that was the way the election went at that time, he was inflaming ethnic and religious passions, bringing two dangerous things to our politics: ethnicity and religion.

“That was what he did and those things were dangerous to our politics.”
