Ex-militant leader, Asari Dokubo has come under attack for declaring the ‘Obi-dient’ movement which is currently going on as a scam.
Dokubo on Tuesday revealed that it would be impossible for the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
His statement has since stirred reactions from Nigerians who took to their social media pages critiquing the ex-militant, describing him as unserious.
Some posited that Dokubo’s statement against Obi is because of what he stands to gain financially from other presidential aspirants and not for the betterment of Nigeria.
Here are some comments gathered by DAILY POST from Twitter;
@Timinipere “Asari Dokubo is a freedom fighter for his own pocket. Someone that shouldn’t be taken seriously.”
@Nonsongadi77 “Someone that has taken up arm against the state is publicly saying that @PeterObi is a scam. He benefitted from the failed system but the game is over.”
@Elhay_I “How serious would I take any comment from Asari Dokubo about Peter Obi? 0-5%, who even gave him the mic to voice his opinion on a sensitive issue like this?”
@Obawade “What has Obi done wrong to SE and South South people that makes them hates him so much.With all this hatred to Peter Obi presidential ambition show that SE is not ready to become Nigeria president. Undermine Peter Obi presidential ambition.I think South East needs true Love and unity among themselves.”
@Whyteabel “I don’t know why people still give this guy attention. He is only trying to be relevant.”
@Donphiloman “In a sane society Dokubo shouldn’t be working freely.”
@IzuuChukwuraa “I don’t blame him, I blame amnesty program that got him education in Saudi Arabia. This is one of the disadvantages of educating a militant.”
@Omoga01 “System beneficiary, attention seeker talking. Someone ask him why he decided to site his university in Benin republic instead of his Ijaw homeland.”
@BiodunAlexa “They are all scared. Peter Obi represents chaos for the cabals and elites who have benefited from a dysfunctional Nigeria.”
@LazimThaVates “Asari is better of giving us meme contents. Let him stay on that path. We don’t want sellouts making comments on serious political talks. Stay where Joe Igbokwe is.”
