President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant on Digital Communication, Bashir Ahmad, has said the North will never support Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party.
Ahmad said Obi has never missed an opportunity to show his dislike for the North.
He was reacting to Obi’s tweet.
Obi had tweeted: “Beyond regaining our mandate, I am committed to lifting people out of poverty and I remain committed to transforming Nigeria starting from the North to every part of the nation.”
Responding, Ahmad criticised Obi for using the North to represent the poverty rate in the country, adding that his action has shown his dislike for the region.
Tweeting, Ahmad wrote: “Yep. It’s undeniable Mr Obi doesn’t like us. He never misses an opportunity to show that, during his time as a governor, when he was contesting and now as the former presidential candidate.
“So we are only reciprocating, and if he runs 1000 times, we will reject him 1000 times.”
