‘Imbibe Spirit Of Sportsmanship, Stop Attacking Other Aspirants, Candidates’ – Peter Obi Urges Supporters

Presidential hopeful, Peter Obi, has urged his supporters to “imbibe the spirit of sportsmanship” and refrain from making personal attacks on other aspirants and candidates of the 2023 general election.

The former Anambra State Governor made the plea on Sunday via his verified Twitter handle, saying it has been brought to his attention that some of his supporters were attacking other aspirants and candidates.

He thanked his supporters for being on his side, but begged them to avoid name-calling his competitors.

Elections are democratic and do not need to breed enemies, Obi noted.

He said, “It has been brought to my attention, and I have also observed that some of my numerous supporters are making personal attacks on other aspirants/candidates.

“Whilst thanking you for your support, which I sincerely value and appreciate, I humbly appeal that we all imbibe the spirit of sportsmanship and avoid name-calling or personal attacks on other aspirants and candidates.

“The common goal is to make Nigeria better. Elections are a democratic contest and need not be adversarial.”
