“It’s a problem being with Peter Obi” Senator Abaribe Says, Gives Reason
Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe has taunted Mr. Peter Obi over his workaholic nature. In a statement attributed to him, Abaribe pointed out that Peter Obi did not rest after his return from an unnamed country as he immediately went to meet a consul general where he was extolled by the consul general and described as the “most popular Nigerian”.
“Mr. Peter Obi just returned from overseas today. By 10 am we were at one of the Consulates in Lagos. After exchange of ideas with the Consul General, the Consul himself requested a photograph with him, saying:
“In Nigeria today, you are about the most popular. Do not be troubled when people, including even the highly placed, scramble to take photographs with you”, Abaribe is quoted to have said.
Mr. Peter Obi who awaits the decision of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal as the hearing draws to a close, has through his lawyers challenged the Independent National Electoral Commission declaration of Bola Ahmed Tinubu as Nigeria’s president in the February 25th 2023 presidential election.
With the support of the youths, Peter Obi has emerged a household name in the Nigeria’s politics and also seen as incorruptible.
