He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, while some of the uncultured social media behaviour by the purported followers have come from opposing camps who often disguise as his followers to perpetrate indecency, some of the firm views expressed by his followers have come from a place of distress and deep hurt due to the deplorable state of affairs in the country.
Obi added that historical antecedents of the presidential candidates should be key to determining who would fulfil his campaign promises.
His words, “I have answered this several times. One, there is infiltration by opponents, and there are those who believe in me who are angry. I’ve served people faithfully. I have never raised my voice at anybody. You cannot go and say because your son shouts at people, that is you. I’m telling them please, but some of them are angry. Some of them have been out of school for the past ten years without jobs. You cannot control their anger. All I can do is an appeal.”
“All of us are saying the same thing, but what makes a difference is – who can we trust? This election is about trust. We are promising the same thing, but can we look at the antecedents? Things they have promised in the past, how they delivered it or attempted to deliver it.”
“Who among these people can we say have the character, the competence, the capacity, the commitment to at least do what he is saying? That is what differentiates us.”
“We’ve had promises in the past. We’ve had promises that the dollar is going to be one-to-one. Now we are almost 800 to one, and nobody is saying anything.”
“We do not need all these fanciful, fair, good-looking manifestos or documents that are written. Let the people come and talk. You mentioned Britain, it was because what she (Truss) promised, she could not deliver; and, honourably, she packed her suitcase and went out.”
