In a statement released in Abuja on Tuesday a copy of which was made available to Africa Daily News, New York, The campaign said ‘Unlike Tinubu and his household who have grown to be stupendously wealthy with no identifiable industry or means of making money outside the state government for over two decades’, Obi is not like that.
The campaign team said, ‘If Keyamo had taken time to study the family he speaks for very well he would have avoided this comparison that is bound to expose the parasitic life of his Principal and understand why the entire household is headlong in the campaign.
‘The other time Tinubu’s wife, Senator Remi, was threatening fire and brimstone over Lagos, then the daughter and now the son is showing off with rally. Do you blame a people struggling to keep a family business? The Tinubu family have cornered the commonwealth of Lagos state which they now run as a family enterprise.
‘Obi’s family is not part of his politics, they are running their lives, contributing to development without nearing public funds.’
The Obi-Datti Media office said Peter Obi is the man seeking the mandate of the Nigerian people to serve them as President not any other member of his family. “He has said it repeatedly that Nigerians must reject anybody desiring to be President by proxy.”
