Obi’s Endorsement: ADC Candidate Kicks, Says Criminals Sold Party

Must read

The erstwhile presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress, Dumebi Kachikwu, on Monday, lambasted some elements within the ADC, describing them as criminals.


Kachukwu was reacting to the ADC endorsement of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed, for the presidency.

He said, “I long warned about the criminals in ADC who sold the party to the bigger parties. They have divided themselves into three groups and collected money from APC, PDP and Labour. One party, three endorsements. Shameful.”

The endorsement came on the heels of a grand coalition for the Obi/Datti Presidency.

Among those who attended the event included ADC factional chairman, Chief Ralph Okey Nwosu; chairman of its Board of Trustees, Dr. Mani Ibrahim and chairman of The Big Tent in Labour Party chieftain, Prof. Pat Utomi.

The star alliance partners were Nigeria Mothers for Good Governance, Fulani United, Nigeria Artisans, League of Imams, Nigeria Traders, Yoruba United, Mega Political Coalition, Kanuris United, Amalgamated Coalitions, CEG Groups and Nigeria Legions United.

Ibrahim said the Obi-Datti Movement was a worthy cause and promised to ensure victory for the movement.

He said, “We founded this party over 16 years ago and we knew it was not going to be easy, but we committed to invest ourselves in the struggle. At the time, we were sure that the structures in place were so fluid, undisciplined, corrupted and frail to carry the country. Almost every Nigerian today shares that sentiment. Time has proved us so right.

“We told ourselves that we are going to be the grassroots political party with an inclusive culture and unique character that will champion the transformation of Nigeria and Africa: a party to birth a new Nigerian nation, where opportunities abound for all as a result of justice, rich diversity principles and values, and creative leadership with capacity to inspire the greatest innovative pursuit amongst our youths and entire people.

“A nation where every one of us and our future generations can dream big dreams and see their dreams come true. A nation where no one is oppressed. Are we succeeding? Sure yes. We never fooled ourselves that we were going to produce the president or governors in even ten years, we knew that nation-building in a highly corrupted space is a struggle.

The event followed a signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the LP and the ADC.

Speaking shortly after signing the MoU, Nwosu said the partnership was only a collaboration and not a merger with the Labour Party.

He also vowed to assist Peter Obi in having his numbers in the national assembly.
