Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has dared supporters of the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to hold a rally in the Southeast, during the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) sit at home.
Naija News reports that Omokri made the call while commending the ‘Obidients’ over Saturday’s 5 million-man march in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State Capital.
Video and pictures which emerged online today captured thousands of crowds who stormed the streets, declaring and soliciting support for Obi.
Reacting to this, Reno in a post shared on Twitter, commended the LP supporters stating it was a nice crowd and commendable effort.
Reno, however, challenged the ‘Obidents’ to hold such a march in the Southeast when the IPOB, declares a sit at home.
He wrote: “Port Harcourt was a nice crowd, although we have seen much, much larger mammoth crowds for the PDP in Adamawa and Calabar, to mention a few.
“Nevertheless, it is still a commendable effort. However, let me recommend a crowd pulling strategy to Peter Obi. When next IPOB declares a sit at home, let the Obidient movement organise a rally. Or are the Obidient movement afraid of IPOB?
“In fact, Peter Obi has never defied IPOB by personally organising activities during their sit at homes in the Southeast. If he refuses to defy IPOB in his backyard, how can he withstand Nigeria’s security challenges? A man who obeys IPOB sit at home wants to sit in Aso Rock. No be juju be that”?
