Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has acknowledged that the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, is not entirely a bad person.
Omokri has always criticized the former Governor of Anambra State and his supporters, popularly known as the ‘Obidients’ via his social media pages.
However, just a few days before the 2023 presidential election, Omokri said Obi is not so bad but that the behaviours of his supporters are what people should be worried about.
According to him, the ‘Obidients’ are unnecessarily aggressive, and he fears what will become of the nation should their candidate becomes Nigeria’s next president.
Omokri tweeted: “Obidients are a curse to Obi. The man himself is not so bad. But with the behaviour of Obidients, you are afraid of what will become of Nigeria if power gets to their hands. Many are just unnecessarily and scarily aggressive. May power never get to their hands.”
Omokri is a staunch supporter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
In another post, while commenting on the attitude of the supporters of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Omokri wrote: “The Obidient movement is more suited for war than politics. In fact, it is a misnomer to call it a movement. It is a militancy. With few exceptions, the difference between the Obidient movement and Boko Haram is ideology. Both want to use force to have their way.
“The Obidient movement has benefited me more than Peter Obi. They have alienated Obi from other Nigerians and rendered him electorally inconsequential. But they have given more engagement on EVERY social media platforms and exploded my bank account. Thank you guys.”
