Diran Onifade, the Spokesperson for the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has reacted to the comments made by Anambra billionaire businessman, Arthur Eze about his principal.
Onifade stated that Eze is part of the establishment and structure that young Nigerians want to take the country from.
Onifade said this in a telephone interview with Vanguard, in Abuja, on Tuesday while responding to Eze’s call on Obi to jettison his Presidential ambition because Ndigbo has other plans for now and in the future.
Onifade who made it clear that he was expressing his personal opinion on the subject, said, “It is the influence of people like that that we want to take our politics away from.
“He is part of the establishment and structure that young Nigerians want to take our country back from.
“When we take power from the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress, the likes of Arthur Eze will no longer wield the kind of influence they enjoy today.
“You don’t expect them to take this lying down. Our candidate and our campaign remain focused on the take ahead which is to take back our country, rebuild it to make it take its proper place in the comity of nations. “
