Presidential candidate of the Labour Party,Peter Obi has denied the social media reports that some eminent Nigerians have donated their personal jets for his presidential campaign.
Obi made the clarification via a statement he personally authored and released on Sunday.
The statement reads:
“Recently, several social media reports have alluded that some eminent Nigerians have donated their personal jets for my use during my campaign. In as much as I appreciate the expression of such hopes, I have never received any of such offers.
“I pray that those eminent Nigerians mentioned, are not unduly distracted by such social media utterances. May God Almighty bless those eminent Nigerians always.”
Meanwhile, Obi will begin his presidential campaign on October 25, 2022.
The official flag-off of the Obi/Datti campaign rally will take place in Lafia, Nasarawa state.
A statement issued in Abuja, on Saturday, by the Chief Spokesperson of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council, Dr. Yunusa Tanko, indicated that the Presidential Campaign would kick off on Tuesday, October 25, 2022.
Dr Tanko disclosed that what happened in Jos, Plateau state, last month was a mere endorsement of the party’s presidential candidate by the people of Middle Belt, stressing that the Campaign rally scheduled to hold in Lafia, Nasarawa State capital in the next ten days would be regarded as the beginning of the campaigns proper.
He noted that what took place in Jos last month could not have served as the flag off of the campaigns since the Presidential Campaign Council had not been constituted.
The flag-off is expected to attract party chieftains, members of the campaign council, Labour party candidates, leaders, and members of the various support groups of the OBIdients’ family.
“On behalf of the LP Presidential Campaign Council, we hereby announce adjustment to the campaign timetable as follows: Official flag-off comes up on the 25th Oct. 2022 in Lafia, Nasarawa State. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation,” Tanko said.
