Loyalists of the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi have been warned not to turn off potential supporters with violent and unruly behaviours.
The concern and warning was raised by the 2015 presidential candidate of KOWA Party, Prof Remi Sonaiya who is now a supporter of Peter Obi’s 2023 presidential ambition.
Taking to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, Sonaiya said what the ‘obidients’ as they are popularly called need to do is to be courteous and respectful.
Naija News reports she made her view known in a tweet on Monday in which she wrote: “Seriously hoping that overzealous #Obidients won’t turn off many potential supporters with their attacks and violent behaviour.
“We have a great opportunity to put a different stamp on the upcoming campaign season by being courteous & respectful.”

Obi Challenges Other Candidates
Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi has dared other party flag bearers who condemn his statistics on Nigeria to present their own argument.
Obi threw the challenge while he and the national leadership of his party received Valentine Ozigbo who recently defected to LP.
Ozigbo, a business mogul, was the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the 2021 Anambra governorship election.
The former governor of Anambra state accused other presidential candidates of poking holes in his theories without presenting their side of the argument.
Obi argued that data and information are important during political campaigns and in governance.
