Former Nigerian lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, has said that there will be peace in the nation if the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, supporters are no longer in the political space.
Sani, however, stated that there would be tyranny in the nation if Peter Obi supporters are not in the scheme of things.
Sharing his thoughts via Twitter on the Obidients movement and their influence on the state of affairs in the nation, Sani wrote, “If you remove the supporters of the Labour Party from Nigeria’s political space, we will all have the peace and tranquillity we want and the tyranny we don’t want.”
Obidients are known for their very vocal and open criticism of the ruling All Progressives Congress and the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
The group made up mainly of Nigerian youths have continuously condemned the conduct of the recently concluded general elections, claiming that there were widespread rigging and voters intimidation.
Some prominent individuals have described the Obidients as unruly, one of those being renowned writer, Wole Soyinka who recently disclosed that he warned Peter Obi the Obidients would eventually lead to his loss as at the polls.
