Diran Onifade, the spokesperson for Labor Party presidential candidate Mr Peter Obi, described the comments attributed to Anambra businessman Chief Arthur Eze about the LP candidate as unfortunate but not unexpected.
Onifade said this in a telephone interview with Vanguard in Abuja on Tuesday.
He responded to Eze’s call for Obi to jettison his presidential ambition because Ndigbo had other plans now and in the future.
Onifade, making it clear that he was expressing his personal opinion on the subject, said: “It is the influence of people like that that we want to take away from our politics.
“He is part of the establishment and structure from which young Nigerians want to take our country back.
“If we take power from the People’s Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress, people like Arthur Eze will no longer wield the kind of influence they enjoy today.
“You don’t expect them to take this lightly. Our candidate and our campaign remain focused on the future, which is to take back our country, rebuild it to take its proper place in the society of nations. “
