The erstwhile presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress, Dumebi Kachikwu, on Monday, lambasted some elements within the ADC, describing them as criminals.
Kachukwu was reacting to the ADC endorsement of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed, for the presidency.
He said, “I long warned about the criminals in ADC who sold the party to the bigger parties. They have divided themselves into three groups and collected money from APC, PDP and Labour. One party, three endorsements. Shameful.”
The endorsement came on the heels of a grand coalition for the Obi/Datti Presidency.
Among those who attended the event included ADC factional chairman, Chief Ralph Okey Nwosu; chairman of its Board of Trustees, Dr. Mani Ibrahim and chairman of The Big Tent in Labour Party chieftain, Prof. Pat Utomi.
The star alliance partners were Nigeria Mothers for Good Governance, Fulani United, Nigeria Artisans, League of Imams, Nigeria Traders, Yoruba United, Mega Political Coalition, Kanuris United, Amalgamated Coalitions, CEG Groups and Nigeria Legions United.
Ibrahim said the Obi-Datti Movement was a worthy cause and promised to ensure victory for the movement.
