A leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, named Biodun Ajiboye recently appeared to discuss the February 25 presidential election and what would have happened to Nigeria if Peter Obi, the candidate of the Labour Party, had won.
The APC leader claimed in an interview with Arise News that neither the LP candidate, Peter Obi, nor any of his open remarks had ever criticised or denounced the Association of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
People “do not comprehend the enormity it would have been if the Labor Party had won,” he claimed.
