Reno Omokri, the media aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has described the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, as a political paperweight who can’t cause an upset in the 2023 elections.
Omokri said the former Anambra state governor could only attract votes from a particular region.
According to Omokri, Obi’s supporters have resorted to cyberbullying because they know their candidate can’t cause an upset in the 2023 presidential election.
He stated this on Wednesday while speaking on Channels TV Politics Today.
Omokri said, “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 and that is why they have resorted to organised cyberbullying but when elections start, they will know it is beyond social media.”
He added that the LP Presidential candidate lacks political wisdom for campaigning to Nigerians abroad who can’t vote.
Omokri accused Obi and his ‘Obidient’ movement of complying with the mandatory sit-at-home directive by the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra than the Nigerian constitution.
He said, “IPOB had a sit at home yesterday (Tuesday), and Obidients who hold meetings every day decided to obey the order yesterday; Peter Obi complies with this order too. This shows that they are observing IPOB more than our constitution.”
