Festus Keyamo, SAN, the campaign spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress, has charged Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, and Datti Baba-Ahmed, Obi’s running mate, for plagiarism.
He claims that Nuhu Ribadu, the former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, coined their catchphrase, “It’s Possible.”
When the former EFCC chairman ran for president under the banner of the now-defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, Keyamo shared a campaign flyer featuring Obi and Datti beside that of Ribadu.
It’s Possible was the motto on both posters, which led Keyamo to assert that Obi and Datti had stolen Ribadu’s idea.
The actual MVPs of plagiarism and identity theft, he titled his post. They are not original at all! #Neck-presser.”
Kyeamo then made fun of Obi, who had lately been made fun of by comedian Akpororo for frequently showing up at church crusades and other events without being invited.
He wrote on Twitter: “My loving Christian brothers and sisters who haven’t seen some characters in their crusades in ages past and are now hosting these characters should realize that these characters are disrespecting their intelligence. You must not use the name of God in vain!
He had previously criticized the Labour Party for giving money to supporters despite past claims to the contrary.
He wrote, “Having realised the ‘one-chance’ they entered initially by saying ‘we no dey give shi-shi’, they have started demanding 5k each. Meanwhile, this is just the 5th month of the so-called ‘movement’. By the time they get as old as the PDP, they will be demanding for one cow each.”
