It is time for another political season in Nigeria and as is usual in Nigeria's political landscape, loyalists of the various political parties or the leading contenders look for ways to demarket the opposition.

Popular former and current government appointees on the payroll of the two leading parties i.e Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC), interestingly have found it convenient to have a go at the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi.

The reason is clear, the former Anambra governor has gained popularity amongst the young population and is likely to cause an upset in 2023.

Detractors have made a mockery of his new-found organic love from Nigerians by stating he lacks the structure to win an election in Nigeria. Obedients have in several ways tried to water down the argument by gifting the Peter Obi campaign physical structures to make up for the deficits.

The attacks have swiftly shifted to Peter Obi's records as the APC in this video TRY to discredit Obi. The video shows presidential candidate of the party mocking Obi's efforts at job creation when he was the vice presidential candidate of the Atiku Abubakar in 2019.

"He was talking that he will create jobs but he has not been able to tell us how we can make brake pads for those vehicles. How we can make wheel spanner on our own for this vehicles.

"And he says maybe we should go and expand the port by ourselves in Benin Republic so that we can clear our cargo faster. I call that one container economy. Obi China!!!"
