The presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 general election, Mr Peter Obi, has deleted a tweet addressing Bola Tinubu as ‘Mr President.’
Obi is challenging the declaration of Tinubu, the All Progressive Congress candidate, as the February 25th election winner.
He had sparked reactions on social media after condemning the 120-car convoy of the president when Tinubu returned from France.
Obi, in the deleted tweet, wrote:
“Mr President moving with about a 120 – car convoy. While I have not had the opportunity of seeing the said video, my advice remains consistent – that sacrifices for a better Nigeria must start from the leaders at all levels of government.”
He later deleted the tweet and published a new one that substituted the ‘120-car convoy of ‘Mr. President’ with ’a trending motorcade video’.
In the new tweet, he wrote:
“We can’t continue to preach for the people to sacrifice without sacrificing too. The sacrifices must now start from the leaders, visibly, and measurably at all times, because the people are suffering. We must now be at the forefront of addressing the suffering.”
