Breaking news happening now in Nigeria and todays latest newspaper headlines

The Peter Obi Support Network (POSN), has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of orchestrating the ordeal the Presidential candidate of Labour Party in the 3023 election , Peter Obi faced in London recently .

POSN in a statement issued on Friday in Abuja and signed by FCC Onwuasoanya Jones of its Directorate of Strategic communications, expressed shock at the extent the APC government of President Muhammadu Buhari is determined to go in its bid to neutralise the influence of Obi, whom it sees as a nightmare and the main threat to its stolen presidential mandate.

“From spending billions of naira paying lobbyists and sponsoring propaganda teams to the USA and UK, the Buhari-led APC Government has now graduated to sponsoring a clone of Peter Obi in the UK in its desperation to demonise a man widely recognised as the conscience of the nation,” it alleges.

It noted that the passport with which the fake Peter Obi obtained UK Visa, must have been issued by the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), adding: “It is instructive that the Nigerian Government has remained silent on Obi’s unwarranted Heathrow Airport ordeal, one full week after the regrettable incident”.

POSN said that though unfortunate, Obi’s underserved humiliation at Heathrow Airport has its positive sides , the most striking of which is that , it provided Nigerians at the airport an opportunity to rise in defence of their hero and they did so – for which we’ll eternally be grateful.

The group added that it also has exposed the dirty anti-Obi schemings of the APC Government as the whole world now knows that whatever crime is committed by the fake Peter Obi has nothing to do with the one and only Peter Gregory Obi, who is universally known and respected for his impeccable character and integrity.

It therefore advised the Buhari-led APC Government to stop wasting scarce resources seeking Obi’s downfall, adding: “Rather than be discouraged, this can only make Obi more resolute in recovering his stolen mandate through the judicial process and in rededicating himself to the crucial task on helping to birth a new Nigeria, which, of course, is very much possible.”
