Labour Party, Vice-Presidential Candidate and campaign Director, Doyin Okupe has denied that Muhammadu Sanusi II endorsed Peter Obi.
Gatekeepers News reports that Okupe denied this in a tweet.
“We also dissociate ourselves from the purported endorsements of his candidacy by HRH Lamido Sanusi and His Eminence The Sultan of Sokoto. We plead wt all our supporters to pls desist from creating falsehood in the social media. Lets focus on claims that are verifiable & true.” he tweeted.
A write-up that analysed the motives of three leading presidential candidates in the 2023 elections has been broadly shared on social media.
The write up is said to have been authored by Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, 13th Emir of Kano.
In the write up, he asserted that none of the candidates are in the race for the money.
The publication claimed that Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has milked the country “well enough” and only wants to answer the title “president” at all cost and through all means.
It also claimed that Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), only wants to fulfill his lifetime political ambition of being president. “At the end of the day, he would teach us what being fantastically corrupt actually means,” part of the post reads.
On Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of Labour party, the post claimed that the former governor of Anambra is a contended man, who has volunteered to save Nigeria from impending catastrophe by becoming the president in 2023.
