A former aide to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari(retd), Bashir Ahmad, has ridiculed Labour Party, bragging that the party would beg him to accept its presidential ticket.
Premium Politics reported that Ahmad who stepped down as Buhari’s aide to contest All Progressives Congress’ House of Representative seat for Gaya/Ajingi/Albasu Federal Constituency, Kano State, lost his bid to the incumbent member, Abdullahi Gaya, with 109 to 16 votes.
LP’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi’s presidential bid has been gaining momentum on social media, particularly amongst youths, as he aims for the unprecedented – defeating Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his former boss Atiku Abubakar, who emerged candidates for the rulling APC and opposition Peoples Democratic Party.
The fan base of Obi have been accused of bullying and noise making on social media.
However, in a series of tweets on Sunday, Ahmad, slammed the Obi’s followers on his verified Twitter handle.
According to Ahmad, “insult is their only strategy to win a follower, and the level of their entitlement is another fine story of its own.
“The PO [Peter Obi] supporters never fail to remind me about the results of my primaries, forgetting that the fear of getting 0 votes made their supreme leader, Peter Obi run away from PDP to a tiny LP, which I am sure with my influence I would be begged to accept its presidential ticket.
“In my state, Kano and neighbouring Kaduna, Katsina, Jigawa and Bauchi, the Labour Party doesn’t even have a whole gubernatorial candidate, if you don’t know what that means then congratulations!”
