Former presidential aide Reno Omokri says the Labour Party’s presidential flag-bearer – Peter Obi – is an Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB-compliant candidate.
Omokri said this Wednesday while being featured on Channels TV’s Politics Today.
He ruled out Obi’s candidacy, saying he could never make a good president.
Omokri accused the ‘Obidient’ movement of religiously complying with the mandatory sit-at-home directive by IPOB’s leadership.
Obi lacks political wisdom for campaigning to Nigerians abroad who can not vote, he added.
“IPOB had a sit-at-home yesterday (Tuesday) and Obidients who holds meetings every day decided to obey the order yesterday,” Omokri said. “Peter Obi complies with this order too. This shows that they are observing IPOB more than our constitution.“
He called Obi a political paperweight who would only attract votes from the southeastern part of the country.
The California-based Nigerian accused Obi’s supporters of resorting to cyberbullying and not capable of causing an upset in Nigeria’s 2023 presidential election.
“Right now, we have three major candidates and Atiku Abubakar is the only national and prepared candidate. If you talk about someone like Peter Obi, he is only a regional candidate. Obi is a political paperweight.”
