The PDP senator had described the supporters of the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, as noisemakers.

He stated this after a face-off with an Obidient supporter, on Twitter.

On Sunday, August 7, the former Enugu State governor claimed that Obi’s supporters, who are known as Obidients, were less than 0.25 percent of the entire 200 million Nigerians.

Nnamani, who is seeking a return to the National Assembly, had earlier vowed that Labour Party would not be allowed to win any political office in Enugu State, saying “bye-bye for Obidient”.

Reacting to the backlash, Nnamani said that his followers belong to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and that they cannot labour for another party to inherit.

In a new post on his verified Facebook page, the lawmaker noted that the “Obidient Movement” shouldn’t have expanded to include the governorship and Assembly seats if it is exclusively for Peter Obi.

The Senator maintained that:

“There is no Obidient PARTY! The name is Labour Party. A political party with candidates in all offices, including the governorship."
