Former Aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has alleged that Labour Party(LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi has lost the votes of entire Yoruba states following his comment on All Progressives Congress (APC), Presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu ahead of 2023 elections.
Reno who was reacting to a trending video where Peter alluded to a WhatsApp message that he claimed originated from Tinubu’s Support group saying, “This is a WhatApp message sent by Tinubu group, “Yoruba shine your eyes oh, if you vote for PeterObi, you are automatically voting for seaports in South East. The Igbos will stop coming to Lagos to invent rather they will go to Delta and Rivers States. They may even stop building houses in Lagos, it will affect a lot of Yorubas”.
In series of Omokri’s tweets reacting to Peter Obi’s claim in the video, he said, “That message is typical of IPOB. Tinubu people don’t operate that way. Asking Yoruba not to vote Peter Obi, because he will build a port in the South-South. First of all, there are already 3 ports in the SS (Ph, Warri and Koko). That message is from IPOB, not Tinubu”.
He added that, “Peter Obi just lost the entire Yoruba vote! See the way he lied against Yoruba leaders. Taking down on Tinubu. Mocking his health and wealth. He sounded more like Nnamdi Kanu. That is the real @PeterObi we saw. The one we have been seeing is the audio Peter Obi!”, he stated.
Newssphere learnt that Reno has been a strong supporter of People’s Democratic Party(PDP) Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
