Omokri said Peter Obi, the flag bearer of the Labour Party, and his supporters called “Obidients” have disrupted the Nigerian political space.
In a series of tweets on Saturday, October 1, he noted that the movement was too strong to be disregarded and anyone who tries to do so is not politically conscious.
Omokri, a staunch supporter of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, wrote:
"The Obidient rallies at Festac and Amuwo were amazing. They are great achievements. Anyone who tries to belittle them is not politically astute. While Obi will not win in 2023, he has successfully disrupted politics in Nigeria. Well done Obi! Well done Obidients!”
