Former Presidential aide has explained why he is against the Presidential aspiration of former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi.
Obi is the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party and has for months now, gathered momentum.
Omokri, who is a staunch Atiku’s ally, explained that if Atiku was not contesting, he would rather vote a Tinubu because of his matured followers.
While noting that Obi is an excellent candidate, Omokri said the people around him are unstrategic with their insults.
In his words:
“Let me use this post to explain something to open minded people. I did a post asking Nigerians to reject Tinubu’s Muslim-Muslim ticket. In 10 minutes I had 300 comments. 16 comments were insults. ALL of them came from Obidients. Not ONE Tinubu person insulted me.
“Think about this with an open mind. In case you doubt me, please go to my Facebook page. The post is still there. The Tinubu supporters were even trying to explain to me why they are supporting Tinubu, even when I criticised him. Not one insult. It is the people I did not talk about that are insulting me. The insults do not even make sense, because what I wrote will even favour them. Very Un-strategic behaviour. How can you entrust power to such beings?
“I know you will still insult me here. But perhaps you can learn a thing or two from Tinubu’s supporters. I am against Tinubu. But I love his supporters. If Atiku were not contesting, I will vote for Tinubu, not because of Tinubu, but because of his followers. I am against Obi, not because of Obi, who is an excellent candidate, but because of his supporters.
“I have been in government as a Presidential spokesman for four years. The people around the President, his supporters, are actually more influential than the President in deciding the direction of the country.
