Politics: MUST-READ! Peter Obi’s Running Mate Speaks On Renting Crowds For Labour Party Rallies – Daily Parrot

Vice-presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Datti Baba-Ahmed, has said thousands of Obi-Datti supporters in major cities across Nigeria were not rented ‘crowds.’

Baba-Ahmed, who spoke on Channels Television’s Political Paradigm programme on Tuesday described the supporters that attended the rallies as legitimate, self-funded and organic ‘crowds.’

He said, “I am not a crowd-renter and I can tell you that Peter Obi is not a crowd-renter. Those are legitimate, bonafide, self-funded, organic crowds.”

The Labour Party vice-presidential candidate, however, pointed out that it was okay for the “owners of structures” and “master politicians” to underestimate the Labour Party and the ‘Obidient’ Movement.

He said, “I want to be fully underestimated. I want Peter Obi to be fully underestimated by the so-called master politicians, the owners of resources, the owners and masters of structures. We are nothing; he is just a businessman (and) I am just an educationist.”

Baba-Ahmed added that those saying the Labour Party can’t win 25% of votes in 24 states in the 2023 presidential election don’t know what they are saying.

“They don’t know what they are saying.

“Awareness has been very high in the north. What happens is that northerners listen more to the politicians and the politicians seem to have more impact on the populace in the north and awareness is pretty high.
