- The Labour Party flagbearer, Peter Obi, has come under serious criticism over his recent interview
- PDP chieftain Reno Omokri called out the former Anambra governor over his academic records following Atiku Abubakar's access to Bola Tinubu's records from CSU
- Omokri queried Obi for not releasing his degree obtained from the UNN to INEC during the presidential election
Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide, has thrown shade at Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 presidential election.
In a post shared on his X page (formerly Twitter) on Tuesday morning, October 3, Omokri queried Obi for not releasing his university certificate from the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN).
The chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) made this assertion after Chicago State University produced three out of the four sets of documents requested by Atiku Abubakar, the party's flagbearer.
Condemning Obi's recent interview, Omokri tweeted:

"Peter Obi, Chicago State University, has backed Bola Tinubu's certificate and stands by the legitimacy of his academic credentials. Only yesterday morning, you were on AriseTV accusing a certain leader of having a "fake certificate." Now, answer this question: Why did you not tender your own degree from the University of Nigeria Nsukka to the INEC?
Nigerians react as Omokri calls out Peter Obi
Nigerians took to the comment section of Omokri's X page and reacted to the development.
Legit.ng captured some of their comment below:
"By now you should have known all Obi’s academic background not all this hide-and-seek Chicago wahala."
"He will never answer the question, olodo ni man yen."
"It's still shocking why you dy carry P.O. for your head when it's your oga Atiku that is championing this case. Why don't you call him out? Abi you dy fear am?"
"Chai, I like PO. I like the way he treats Reno his brother. I was very mad some time ago why PO could not even say a word to soothe Reno's wounds. Now I understand. Silence is the best answer."
"It all becoming pointless on this certificate of a thing."
"Obi is only trying to be relevant because after campaign, nothing remains for him to say anymore."
How Tinubu handled fuel subsidy removal wrongly
Earlier, Peter Obi described fuel subsidy as an organised crime in Nigeria and said that he would have removed it if elected as president.
Obi noted that he would have taken a well-thought-out approach before removing it to avert the current acute effects. He, however, noted that the president's announcement on May 29, 2023, is the multiplier effect Nigerians are suffering at the moment.
Chicago State University: Peter Obi mocks President Tinubu
