Peter Obi Under Attack Over Comments Against U.S Secretary’s Call To Tinubu
The 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has been attacked by alleged members of opposition party over his comments on the phone conversation between the United States Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, and President-elect Bola Tinubu.
Recall that INFORMATION NIGERIA earlier reported that Bliken called Tinubu on Tuesday on the phone that the Joe Biden administration is committed to strengthening ties with Nigeria.
The US Secretary stated that the U.S.-Nigeria partnership is built on shared interests and strong people-to-people ties and that those links should continue strengthening under Tinubu’s tenure.
However, Bliken and Tinubu also discussed the importance of inclusive leadership that represents all Nigerians and reforms to support the economic growth of Nigeria.
Reacting in a statement via his official Twitter handle on Friday, Obi said there is a lack of clarity on the basis of the U.S. Secretary of State’s call to Tinubu.
He stated that the United States should have awaited full resolution of the ongoing judicial processes before tacitly conferring legitimacy on Tinubu’s victory.
Following the development, some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Tinubu’s supporters took the comment section to slammed the former Governor of Anambra State for his statement.
The comments reads;
“Are you people still crying over the phone call when the person is even getting ready to come to Abuja to attend BAT’s inauguration ceremony?”
“Dude chill. You lost because you are too stingy”
“Ekwute, Rest In Jesus Name!!!”
“You will never be President of Nigeria.”
“Imagine 3rd position. Na loud voice una get. With retweet. We no send May 29 is here come to eagle square as a spectator.”
“Why is Obi not respecting the people’s choice are you more of a Nigerian than the people who vote APC?”
“You have zero moral authority to talk about the rule of law when you are walking around with someone who was sacked by a competent court. You are a hypocrite, a liar, and a disgrace to well-meaning Nigerians.”
“You are too Garulous…Frothing endlessly like a cursed parrot…Rest, you won’t be the 1st to come distant 3rd in an election. Rest.”
“Peter Obi cannot even read his tweet. Everything about him is fake.”
