APC chieftain and member of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, Femi Fani-Kayode, has taken a swipe at ‘Obiedients’ – supporters of the presidential flag-bearer of the Labour Party – Peter Obi.
In a tweet Saturday, Fani-Kayode described Obidients as poor little children.
“The problem with Peter & his Obidients is that they know how to throw punches but they don’t know how to take them,” he tweeted. “They enjoy hurling insults at others but they can’t take insults themselves. One small jab & their glass jaws are broken & ego shattered. Poor little children.”
Recall that the former culture and tourism minister had earlier berated Obi, saying the former Anambra governor would come a distant fourth in the 2023 presidential election.
Fani-Kayode made this assertion in a series of tweets in response to a statement credited to Obi in which the presidential candidate was quoted as saying he does not response to presidential spokespersons.
According to the former aviation minister, “the arrogance and deceit of Obi is nauseating and confounding.”
He added: “By the time he gets trounced in the presidential election and comes a distant 4th he will know that this is a game for the big boys.”
Fani-Kayode predicted that the result of the 2023 election will shock Obi and his supporters.
“It is at that time that he and his venomous, ignorant and garrulous supporters will cry blue murder and claim that the election was rigged and attempt to turn the nation upside down, burn everything in sight and riot.
“This time we will be ready for them and we will defend Asiwaju’s mandate with everything we have got.”
