One thing I have learnt from this election, and Peter Obi in particular, is a reaffirmation of the old saying that when you're penny wise, you become pounds foolish.

Imagine the hundreds of millions of naira wasted on lawyers at the Election petition tribunal level, supreme court level, and even chasing Tinubu's records all over the world.

Shouldn't this money have been used instead to pay as many polling agents as possible to secure the votes at every stage of the elections, collation, transmission etc?

GEJ had a very poor showing in the SE courtesy of that thief Obi whom GEJ foolishly appointed as his SE campaign director.

SE PDP big wigs complained to GEJ that Obi was yet to mobilise funds for GEJ's re-election campaign for the SE.

Obi told GEJ that he will release the funds on the last minute to the polls which he never did.

Most SE PDP members did not do their ground mobilization because of obi's greed and centralisation of GEJ's campaign in the zone.


This is why GEJ has not been on speaking terms with Obi since he lost reelection .

Even the CPC wing of the APC warned their SW ACN counterparts not to celebrate Buhari's win as their doing but instead said it was a combination of voter apathy in the SE (brought about by Obi's greed) and the massive rigging done in the NW that saw Buhari through.

This is why GEJ never endorsed Obi but instead endorsed Tinubu in place of his own party candidate , Atiku for obvious reasons.


Obi is reaping his greed and theft of over #200bn earmarked to him as the SE PDP campaign coordinator in the 2015 elections.

No other individual has caused PDP so much damage than Obi.

Even Atiku choosing him as his running mate only saw to SE PDP working against Atiku .

The last elections, APC took Atiku's votes and allotted it to Obi .

PDP should make it part of their constitution to never accept Obi into their party.

They can't have the party agent in all polling unit because they are not popular nationwide.

Hatred for Obi has made you ignore your senses.

You are witnessing criminal state capture and you think its about party agents? Didnt Atiku pay his agents?
