Peter Okoye Talk Tough: Ask Friends, Others To Stay Away

By John Michael Ojo
Popular Nigerian songwriter and singer, Peter Okoye of Psquare better known as Mr P, has dismissed the claims made by Ovation Magazine Publisher Dele Momodu that Peter Obi, a Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), cannot win the 2023 presidency as he lacks the structure to do so.

Momodu while featuring on a programme ‘Your View’ on TVC on Tuesday stated that Obi cannot win the 2023 presidency in a party such as the Labour Party.

When asked if Obi, a former Anambra State governor would be able to pull the type of votes Trump did in the US as an underdog, which nobody thought existed or get a large number of youths to vote for him in the general election, Momodu said it’s impossible.

He also claimed Obi would most likely face the challenges of singly funding the party as the party lacked the financial capability to withstand the likes of the presidential flag bearers of PDP, Atiku Abubakar and APC, if Bola Ahmed Tinubu wins the upcoming presidential primaries.

He said: “For me, the two of the best that were in the PDP were myself and Peter Obi and he had absconded. I was in Labour, I started my journey from Labour, the first thing Obi will face in Labour is to fund the party because the party does not have money and Nigerians don’t make contributions.

“After I lost the first ten million, I started shaking because they said they were setting up a structure. You cannot win a presidential election from a fringed local party like Labour. Peter Obi has money unlike me but can he spend his hard earned money on fighting Atiku and Tinubu if he emerges the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Party, he can’t.”

While responding to Momodu’s claims, Okoye maintained that even though Obi might not have money and structure, he has the youths and masses who are clamouring for a society that works behind him.

In a series of tweets on Wednesday, the musician noted that the 2023 election is beyond delegates as the masses will control the outcome of the election.

He tweeted: “With all due respect Sir Mr Dele Momodu! Yes, Peter Obi might not have the money and structure! But he has the Youths,The Masses and The People now! The truth is that we the people are the structure. We are many and we are powerful, We are Obi-dient, we can not be distracted.

“It is now beyond the delegates. The masses will control the outcome of the election. Will they vote for the candidate who paid delegates thousands of dollars to emerge as a candidate or vote for Peter Obi who has plans to change Nigeria from consumption to production?

“You people don’t understand the hardship and abject poverty that will hit us if Peter Obi doesn’t win. It’s not about the North or South here, it’s about who will save us, the country is crumbling in all sectors, people are dying unnecessarily, all this rubbish must stop.

“They intentionally create hardship for the people, so that they can easily buy people over to support them in a time like this! Are you people not tired of suffering? Is Nigeria today satisfactory for you? Don’t fall for these same mind games again.

“Please one more thing Sir Mr Dele Momodu, with all the money and structure that other political parties have, where has it taken Nigeria to? We need Pure CHANGE! And Peter Obi is that change! And now a Threat to all of them all! Sorosoke.”

Why I Quit Oil, Gas Job For Acting - Daniel Effiong

By John Michael Ojo
Nollywood actor and director, Daniel Etim Effiong, has disclosed why he left his job in the oil and gas sector as a chemical engineer for a career in the make-believe industry.

He said he made such  a decision  after working for about  three years and couldn’t find fulfillment.

Daniel Effiong who is popular for his role in the movie, Plan B as Dele Coker, revealed this in a recent interview with popular TV host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu.

Effiong said his friends thought he was crazy when he told them he wanted to switch from studying chemical engineering to the arts in his third year at the university.

He added that his family had to call for meetings as a result of the decision he was trying to take and that distracted him but did not kill his dream.

“I studied chemical engineering because I was great at it, having done the sciences in secondary school and my teachers asked me to do it.

“I had members of my family who were in the oil and gas industry that blazed the trail for us. I decided to go into oil and gas and did just that. I was in oil and gas for two-three years. I wasn’t getting satisfaction and fulfillment.

“I was also doing art on the side, doing open mics and spoken word in the evenings. That gave me more fulfillment. I got great feedback and had a little chat with my folks and decided I was going to do it full-time.

“Doing acting wasn’t about money. I tried and failed to make the switch before when I was at the university. I told my folks in my third year I wanted to leave chemical engineering and start over with theatre arts from scratch.

“They thought I was crazy, called family meetings, distracted. That killed the dream. Then it came again two years into oil and gas. I didn’t tell anyone. I really thought about it and made the leap. I’ve been flying since.

“Acting was my first love. I did it at church, at school, and at every opportunity I had. But storytelling, directing, and producing came as a soft landing for me.”

Effiong has been involved in a number of movies and→ directed some.
