Obi never received money from Abure – Tanko debunks N850m claims



The Obi-Datti Chief Spokesman, Dr Yunusa Tanko has reacted to the claim by Mr Calistus Okafofor that the National Chairman of Labour Party, Bar Julius Abure, gave the presidential candidate of the party, Peter Obi N850 million to prosecute the 2023 election.

Tanko said Obi did not collect any funds from the party, describing the claim as false.

In a statement he signed and made available to DAILY POST on Wednesday, Tanko noted that it was Obi who actually gave money to the party.

He challenged Okafor to produce evidence if actually the chairman told him that he gave Obi money for the purpose of campaigning during the election.

Tanko declared that he was in the forefront of the campaign and privy to most of the expenses during the campaign and to the best of his knowledge, the party never provided any money directly to Obi to support his campaign rallies across the country.

The Campaign spokesman further stressed that Obi and his supporters were quite aware of all the campaign of calumny being orchestrated recently from various quarters against the LP leader just to paint him in bad faith by those scared of his rising acceptance by the Nigerian people.

“We are aware that people are already scheming for 2027 and it is unfortunate that certain individuals have chosen to divert attention from the high rate of insecurity and poverty that are currently threatening the very existence of our nation by constantly attacking the personality of Peter Obi.

“Those are the enemies of Nigeria and Nigerians but l know that God will disappoint them and rescue our country from their grips whether they believe it or not,” he stated
