Pat Utomi Breaks Silence After Being Accused of Helping Tinubu Fund Peter Obi’s Campaign

A political economist, Professor Pat Utomi, has reacted to the claim that he was used by the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, of the All Progressive Congress (APC) to reduce the chances of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, in the February 25, 2023 election.

GISTSMATE MEDIA had earlier reported that the Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate in Oyo State, Tawfiq Akinwale, while speaking on a radio programme on 101.7 YES FM, Ibadan, Oyo State, alleged that Tinubu asked Utomi to step down for Peter Obi in the buildup to the 2023 general elections.

Utomi, in a subtle reaction, said the allegation was desperation to bent into disinformation about what he did for the common good of the nation.

The chieftain of the Labour Party (LP) stated this on Thursday via his Twitter handle while reacting to Akinwale’s allegation.

Akinwale, who spoke in Yoruba language, further stated that Obi received campaign funds from Utomi, whom he described as Tinubu’s “son.”

In a subtle reaction to Akinwale’s allegation, Utomi via @UtomiPat, wrote: “As I watch the desperation with which past acts sown in love for the common good is unearthed and bent into disinformation regarding the present I am thankful that in the end truth is the only thing that prevails when lust for power is consumed by its own negativity. So I ignore.”
