Mr Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, has clarified that those disguised as his supporters, attacking other candidates, particularly on social media, are from the camp of his opponents.


It was reported that the purported supporters of Obi have several times, been accused of being violent on social media, attacking anyone who speaks against the former Anambra State Governor.


But speaking with BBC Pidgin on Sunday, Mr Obi declared that they are not his supporters, stressing that the ‘Obi-dients’ have been infiltrated by the opponents.


He said, “Those people are not actually my supporters. It is an infiltration by opponents claiming to be my supporters or supporters of Labour Party.


“But let me assure you that I am running this election as a Nigerian. I don’t want people to vote for me because I’m from the South-East.


“I want them to vote for me because I’m a Nigerian who has the competence to mobilize Nigerian people into turning around of our country. I’m a committed Nigerian. I believe in Nigeria”.
