A former presidential aide and All Progressives Congress member, Bashir Ahmad, has said that Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, should be disqualified from contesting the 2023 election.
Ahmad, in a tweet, argued that Obi should be disqualified by the Independent National Electoral Commission in line with the Electoral Act 2022.
He said that Obi was not a member of the party, based on the list of the party’s members submitted on April 25, 2022.
Ahmad tweeted, “In line with EA2022, the INEC should disqualify the LP presidential candidate from contesting the 2023 election.
“The candidate isn’t on the party’s membership list submitted to the electoral body. The list was submitted on April 25, while the candidate joined the party on May 26.”
