Peter Obi’s Politics of Ethnicity, Religion Can Destroy The Fabrics Of Nigeria-Biodun Ajiboye



A renowned media mogul and award winning advertising practitioner, Otunba Biodun Ajiboye has condemned the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 election, Mr. Peter Obi over his alleged politics of ethnicity and religion.

Ajiboye, who is a deputy director, media and publicity, APC presidential campaign council spoke in a television programme, said that what Obi has done to the politics of Nigeria is unimaginable, adding that those who are praising him today would curse him at the end of the day.

“Never in the history of Nigeria has any politician been so bold to ride on ethnicity and religion.

“We avoided it deliberately because the national unity of Nigeria was more important than anything and anybody else.

“Not that people could not have played on those sentiments or ride on them to power, no. The danger of riding on both sentiments is that once you ride on them and you succeed you have destroyed the unity, and the social fabric of our unity. He has successfully destroyed it,” he said.

The top chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) added that Endsars protest was actually meant to whittle the politics of the nation’s President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and pitch him against the federal might.

Ajiboye, a staunch practitioner in the Nigerian telecommunications industry, and the brain behind the famous Nigerian Telecom News, alleged that when they started the Endsars initially, it was as if Tinubu was encouraging them until they started burning and destroying his property.

He said; “that was when the people realised that you cannot be involved in a project and your property would be destroyed.

“If you observe, in the beginning, children from reputable homes were the ones saying that SARS had been wicked to them.

“That was when people like Falz, Tiwa Savage, Davido and others joined hands. Immediately they saw that coalition of young people, the people who wanted to destroy Lagos State penetrated them, they were the ones that had arms.

“There was a broadcast at that time, purportedly by the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, saying ‘go and burn this place, go and burn that place.’ He was giving them instructions on where to destroy,” he said.
