The Labour Party (LP) has given its 2023 presidential candidate, Peter Obi, 48 hours to make all his academic records public and explain certificate discrepancies or be suspended.

National Publicity Secretary Abayomi Arabambi issued the ultimatum on Tuesday.

Arabambi slammed Tanko Yinusa, spokesman for the Peter Obi/Datti Ahmed presidential campaign council, for denying that Obi was impersonating his late elder brother.

Arabambi said, “The Labour Party wants to know the name of Peter Obi’s computer science-reading elder brother.

“What year did Peter Obi’s older brother die? The secondary school and University of Nigeria Nsukka certificates had what names? What is his brother’s business? Where is Peter Obi’s birth cert? Which name was on Peter Obi’s birth certificate?

Why does his birth certificate name differ from his school certificate? Why is his school certificate name different from his UNN certificate? Which university mobilised Peter Obi for his one-year NYSC? Why are his NYSC and University of Nigeria Nsukka certificates other names?

He said, “One would have expected Peter Obi to offer a satisfactory response to Nigerians about the reasons for explicit discrepancies in his academic records to reveal his true identity and save our party from further avoidable national embarrassment”.

He added, ‘But rather than toe this line of challenge, his attack dog descended to the arena of political somersault, leaving facts to promote audio fiction, thus confirming our position that Peter Obi is using the name and certificate of his dead elder brother.

Arabambi stated that Obi provided no evidence against the allegations of forgery, impersonation, and inconsistencies in his school, University of Nigeria Nsukka, and NYSC certificates.

The Labour Party also asked why Mr. Obi only submitted his WAEC certificate, which failed to meet the minimum credit passes in mathematics and English required for university admission in Nigeria.

The Labour Party also wants Mr. Peter Obi to explain why he had different names in different schools and public documents in such a fraudulent manner rather than using blackmail and unnecessary sentiments.

“We challenge Mr. Peter Obi to answer all the above questions to clear the air about his person.

We further advise him to sue the Labour Party or ask his lawyers to petition the Inspector General of Police for defamation. This will allow us to question his secondary school, the University of Nigeria Nsukka, and National Youth Service Corp’s officials about the inconsistencies.

“Failure to do this within the next 48 hours will attract his suspension from the Labour Party,” Arabambi said.
