Reno Omokri, a former spokesperson for the president, praised Peter Obi’s supporters for organizing a successful rally, calling it a significant accomplishment.
Despite acknowledging that Peter Obi had harmed the political environment, Omokri declared in a tweet on Saturday that Obi would not win the 2023 election.
“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!,” Omokri wrote.
Omokri, a staunch supporter of Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, has always been very critical of Peter Obi.
In the run-up to the 2023 presidential election, supporters of Peter Obi held rallies across the federation on Saturday.
Obi who was the running mate of Atiku in 2019 on the ticket of PDP will go against former Lagos governor Bola Tinubu, Atiku Abubakar, and others to emerge as the country’s president in 2023.
