Nigerian artist Peter Okoye has stated that he would rather vote for Vice President Yemi Osinbajo over an Igbo man such as Senate Chief Whip and All Progressives Congress senatorial candidate for Abia North, Orji Uzor Kalu.
The 41-year-old revealed this on Tuesday via his social media handle after declaring that he is not supporting the Labour Party’s presidential nominee because he is Igbo.
“If you believe I support PETER OBI because he is Igbo, try replacing him with Yemi Osibanjo versus Orji Uzo Kalu and see if myself and Igbos don’t vote heavily for Yemi Osibanjo,” the musician added.
Remember that the musician questioned Osinbajo’s stance on the current Naira scarcity on Saturday.
“In all of these, where does the vice president of the Federal Republic, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo stand?” He tweeted.
He further lamented the hardship brought upon the people by the Naira redesign policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), saying the policy will prevent APC from buying votes in the general elections.
“Dear APC Governors, We the Nigerian people are not complaining about the policy. As a matter of fact we are so used to the hardship APC has brought upon us. We actually stand with Buhari and Emefiele on this one. We still have N50, N100 and N200 Note in circulations! Desperados,” Peter wrote in another tweet on Saturday.
The singing twin brothers have openly pledged their support for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi whom they are confident will win Nigeria’s presidential election on February 25.
