Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has said that Peter Obi, the flag bearer of the Labour Party, and his “Obidients” supporters have disrupted the Nigerian political space.
He stated this on Saturday evening whilst reacting to the massive rallies held across the country.
According to Omokri, the rallies were great achievements, as the “Obidient” movement is too strong to be belittled.
On Twitter, he wrote; “The Obidient rallies at Festac and Amuwo were amazing. They are great achievements. Anyone who tries to belittle them is not politically astute. While Obi will not win in 2023, he has successfully disrupted politics in Nigeria. Well done Obi! Well done Obidients!”
In an earlier tweet, Omokri described the rallies as merely a show of force by southeastern traders.
The tweet read; “These so-called ‘one million man marches’ are mostly a gathering of traders in various Nigerian towns and cities, who close down their markets (that are heavily dominated by people of southeastern origin), to do what in the military is called a show of force”.
