The Senator representing Abia South in the National Assembly, Enyinnaya Abaribe, has faulted those linking Peter Obi, the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, to Biafra agitation and Igbo presidency.

The former Senate Minority Leader opined such move was a smear campaign aimed at de-marketing the former Anambra state governor.

He wondered why the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has not been linked to Fulani herdsmen or presidency, or refer the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu’s aspiration to “Yoruba presidency”.

The lawmaker who spoke during a virtual town hall meeting organized by Ikengaonline, urged critics to stop linking Obi to his tribe and religion.

According to him: ”It’s unfortunate that Peter Obi’s emergence which is now a silver lining has come with complications. Tinubu has a presidential ticket, nobody is saying it’s a Yoruba ticket.

”Atiku has a ticket, nobody is saying it’s a Fulani ticket. But Peter Obi got a ticket and everybody is shouting: ’It’s Igbo presidency. Some even try to link him with the Biafra agitation.

”Have they tried to associate Tinubu with the Oduduwa self determination agitation? Or Atiku within the Fulani herdsmen menace or the banditry in the North?”
