Peter Obi To Supporters : Allow Me Respond To Any Presidential Candidate Who Talks About Me
Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP), has asked his supporters to allow him to respond to any candidate who speaks about him.
In a tweet on Monday, Obi asked his supporters to concentrate on promoting their vision of making Nigeria a better country.
“I most sincerely appreciate all my supporters and those of LP. I love you all,” the former Anambra governor tweeted.
“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.”
This is not the first time the LP presidential candidate is cautioning his supporters. On July 3, Obi asked his supporters to be tolerant of other viewpoints.
He gave the counsel days after Poju Oyemade, senior pastor of Covenant Christian Centre, faced fierce criticism from his supporters over a social media post.
Oyemade had advised youths not to waste their enthusiasm on a “poorly planned project”.
“While the frustration and anger in the country is understandable, we must strive to channel that energy positively in ways that will earn the support and collaboration of others,” Obi had said at the time.
