The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Thursday said the Labour Party and it’s Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi failed in the just concluded Presidential election because he lacked the pan Nigeria appeal to be President

“We owe Labour Party and Peter Obi the blunt truth. They failed in the election. No amount of red herring and misinformation about the election and the outcome can obliterate this reality” part of a statement signed Bayo Onanuga, APC Presidential Campaign Council stated.

The party maintained that Obi did not have a pan Nigerian appeal to earn him victory at the polls.

“God created our country in a way to make it impossible for any part of the country to exist without the other.

“The framers of our Constitution also worked to bind our country together with provisions that will make it impossible for a section of the country and any religion to have political domination over the other.

“What this means is that any aspiring politician for the Presidency of Nigeria must have a Pan Nigeria appeal and strong support and must be embraced by adherents of other religions.

“Mr Obi and his party knew why they failed. They knew they had no path to victory with their negative and dangerous campaign

Onanuga stated that the Labour party had positioned itself as candidate of the youth votes, but “its planners forgot that Nigeria does not have a homogeneous and monolithic youth population that can deliver bloc vote to any candidate

“All major political parties that contested the election also have strong youth appeal and supporters.

“The lesson in Mr. Obi’s defeat is that no politician in Nigeria can win a presidential race by being a sectional and an anointed candidate of any religion”

He said the President Elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, won “a pan Nigeria mandate in a free , fair and credible election”
