Former Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Peter Ayodele Fayose described the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Gregory Obi, as “a serious cancer”.
In an interview with TVC News, Fayose equated Obi to be a cancer that was slowly eating the political structures of the APC and his beloved PDP.
“Obi a serious cancer, stage four. He has finished both liver, kidney, heart of PDP…he is now choping APC too. If there is any organ left it’s carcass”.
He believes the Labour Party Presidential candidate lost at the polls because he did not have the political spread needed to win an election in Nigeria.
He opined that whoever won the election must partner with the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party in order for his administration to succeed. He believes Obi has become an institution in the Nigerian political structure and the precious gem of the youths.
