Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has said the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, will soon fade away like the popular reality TV show, BBNaija.
According to Omokri who is backing the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, Obi is like BBNaija stars who trend during the show but fade away as soon as the show is over.
Omokri, in a tweet on Monday, said the same fate awaited Obi as soon as the 2023 presidential election ends.
He wrote, “Peter Obi is like #BBNaija housemates. Both will trend online and generate excitement. Their fans will fight anyone that does not fanatically agree with them. Until after Election Day, or the next BBNaija season. Then, they will gradually FADE AWAY!”
Meanwhile, Obi has urged his supporters to allow him personally respond to comments made about him by others in the presidential race.
He tweeted, “I most sincerely appreciate all my supporters and those of LP. I love you all. I wish to appeal to you to allow me to personally respond to any CANDIDATE that makes comments about me, while you concentrate on issues to promote our cause of moving our dear Nigeria from consumption to production, create jobs, and generally evolve a better Nigeria – PO.”
