Nigerian singer, Daddy Showkey has reacted to reports of a new presidential candidate being chosen by a faction of Labour Party.
This comes after the former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi emerged as the party’s presidential candidate after Pat Utomi stepped down for him at the primary election held recently.
Reacting to the emergence of another candidate said to be Peter Obi’s former aide, Chief Digar Ezenwafor, Daddy Showkey speaking in a video shared on his social media page, asserted that “they” are trying to use an Igbo man to fight another Igbo man.
He then called on Igbos to unite and not allow themselves be used to scuttle the chances of a credible candidate in the 2023 election.
The ‘galala’ crooner further advised Ezenwafor to abort his presidential ambition if he is a true Igbo man.
Watch him speak below,
Daddy Showkey’s statement has stirred reactions from netizens, especially Igbos, as they speak against Ezenwafor’s ambition.
“Sometimes I’m very proud to be Igbo, the next minute I’m totally disappointed, he is his ex- aide, so I don’t understand why he is doing this?? if not to dent his ambition or an unsettled dispute, what will he gain if he is not sponsored 😑🚶”
“Its really sad. Lets say Peter Obi steps down for him, how many votes does he think he will get. Elections are supposed to be determined by the people. The people loves Peter Obi so i still don’t understand the meaning of this rubbish. He will end up ridiculing himself all because of money. Really sad”
“If only the Igbos go unite Support OBI. There’s assurance he would win. Why would they always bring down their own brother. The selfishness coming out from the South East has blinded them to the extent they can’t think. They think it’s by agitation. I PITY FOR THE IGBOS. They have a longest way to go. Doubt if they can rule the Country called NIGERIA”
