A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dele Momodu, has said supporters of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, have begun to realize the importance of a political structure.
The spokesperson of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council said this on Monday, during an interview on Arise TV, explaining that he wondered how the Obi camp would compete with the PDP that had been in existent for a long time and already had structures.
He said, “The Obidients are beginning to see the importance of structure. Structure is not something out of this world, it is a needed requirement. How many governors have you got, which is what Tinubu is banking on that ‘my governors will help me’.
“How many senators or senatorial candidates does Obi have? How many people for House Representatives, how many for House of Assembly? They haven’t got much of that.
“You are also going to need agents nationwide, thousands of them. That will form part of structures.
“If you say ‘we don’t pay ‘shi shi’, you can see how people are moving away in droves in some of these smaller parties because the structures are not there. The structures also include the funding of each of those structures.
“We shall see in the next one week what will happen. The polls will not help Obi. If they like, let one million say Obi is going to win.”
