New twist as OBIdients slam Peter Obi in public domain

There was mild drama yesterday as supporters of Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, popularly called ‘OBIdients’, dragged their principal for apologising on their behalf.

Obi had distanced the OBIdient Movement from social media attacks on General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.

Adeboye was quoted to have urged Christians and Nigerians to pray for the incoming government and that God will support it and give it the grace to do the right thing – a report later findings revealed to be false.

Opposition, however, accused Obi’s supporters of sponsoring the attacks on the revered cleric.

Reacting, Obi in a tweet, claimed some elements are masquerading as Obidients to abuse and insult eminent personalities in the country.

Obi also exonerated his supporters, popularly known as “Obidients”, from being behind raining of insults on prominent Nigerians, maintaining that they are law-abiding citizens.

In a counterattack, OBIdients in a Twitter space popularly called “Vawulence Space” urged Obi to stop apologising for their actions.

According to them, the OBIdient Movement is different from other political groups that can be “gagged” by the power that be adding that it is not right for Obi to continue denouncing or apologising on their behalf.

“If they born you well (referring to Peter Obi) apologise again. It’s like you’re (unprintable). We have been receiving insults on your name but you’re now apologising on our behalf. Please stop it,” an angry supporter was quoted as saying on the space.
