One of Labour Party (LP) spokesperson, Kenneth Okonkwo has said individuals who have attributed LP presidential candidate, Peter Obi’s performance at the February 25 general elections to religion and ethnicity are simply being ‘ignorant and mischievous’.

Okonkwo took to his Twitter handle on Tuesday following the recently leaked audio conversation between Obi and Living Faith Church General Overseer, Bishop David Oyedepo.

In the audio, Obi allegedly described the election as a “religious war” and sought the Bishop’s assistance in convincing his church members.

However, Okonkwo said that some people were “trumping up useless and baseless allegations to taint Obi’s records”.

The actor cum politician said evidence showed all tribes and religions voted Obi in the just concluded elections.

He wrote, “Anybody who ascribes ethnic or religious implication to Obi’s phenomenal success in the 2023 presidential election is ignorant and mischievous. There’s no Politician in Nigeria’s history that contested the presidential election in Nigeria for the first time under a relatively unknown political party against two established two major political parties that achieved the spread and votes that Obi achieved. His performance in the FCT and Lagos, which have the most cosmopolitan nature in Nigeria, shows that Hausas, Yoruba, Igbo, all tribes, Muslims, Christians and every religion voted for him.

“Seeing his powerful petition to reclaim his mandate, stolen through open robbery by INEC and the failed APC ruling party, they are trumping up useless and baseless allegations to taint his records. A party that brought out a sick old drug baron and religious bigot who chose same faith ticket in a multi-religious Nigeria should be too ashamed to even speak in the public space. But this is the low they’ve brought Nigeria to and they will soon be cleaned out from the leadership cadre in Nigeria, by God’s grace.”
