Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Uzor Kalu has said that Peter Obi of the Labour (LP), and other candidates are indirectly working for the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu ahead of the February 25th elections.
Uzor made the claim on Tuesday during an interview on Channels Television’s Political Paradigm.
According to the Chief Whip, Obi and the other candidates were simply dividing the southern votes.
The APC chieftain argued that he does not believe in pre-election polls which have put Obi ahead of the other presidential candidates including Tinubu.
He said, “I don’t believe in the poll; the poll is not realistic,” Uzor said. If the poll wants to be realistic, Kwankwaso and Peter Obi are working for us because nobody has touched our base; nobody has touched the strongest base of APC. The North-West and the North-East are our base.
“But come to the South-East, it is divided, come to the South-South, it is divided, it is finished with Obidients. Nobody has touched our base; our base is still intact; it is as good as anything.”
According to the federal lawmaker, pre-election polls were conducted among the elite and it is not a true representation or reflection of the thinking and general voting behavior of the electorate.
