He stated this in a tweet on Friday. According to him, the picture making the rounds online was done by a misguided support group. Dear Reader, Every day, we work hard to provide readers such as you with the most accurate, up-to-date, and comprehensive information. Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide to ex- president Goodluck Jonathani, had on Thursday posted a photo of the Labour Party with Obi’s image on a prayer mat. While the one has seemingly blown all the goodwill that propelled it to power, almost eight years ago, the other, for sixteen solid years, was merely nibbling with the ordinance of governance. Omokri, who supports the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Atiku Abubakar, described it as a sad development. Today, we're asking that you support us to do more. He said, “This is why I say Christians should compulsorily study IRK (Islamic Religious Knowledge) and Muslims should do same with CRK (Christian Religious Knowledge). “Is it by coincidence that it came when we were reliably informed that some political parties have charged their political office holders to hire people to relentlessly attack Obi with falsehoods on all available social media platforms? “The false writer said that after the killing of northerners on the 21st and 22nd of March, 2006, before Peter Obi became the governor, his reaction came in the form of a statement, namely: ‘you people should tell your people to stop killing our people in the north’.

“I have read the Quran.. It’s barely a month since Obi suddenly announced his resignation form the PDP, whereupon, he finally pitched his tent with the LP, but the ululation and mass embrace of the Obi campaign train has been, for the lack of a better expression, massively massive. This is wrong. Islam does not tolerate images of humans or animals in mosques. Tinubu tried it in Mecca and the Saudis arrested his campaigners! “Islam does not tolerate images of humans in mosques or on prayer mats. Suddenly, they are seeing in the Obi candidature, a new hope, a new lease of life on the Nigerian federation. How much more an image of a politician. The truth is that there were no bar men at all.

This is sad. “And you cannot even counsel these people. The followership is as electrifying as it is enchanting, especially among the youth and the unemployed Nigerians. They feel they know more than those counselling them. You talk one, they talk one hundred. Anyway, we are watching. The swell of the ranks is high. “During his tour of the north, Obi, for example, made it clear that expanse of land in the North for agricultural purposes is a great gift to Nigeria, which if properly managed, would be able to feed the nation and for export.

” Responding, the former Anambra State Governor said that he has deep respect for all religions. “The inclusion of my picture on the praying mat by a support group was misguided, even with the best of intentions. It didn’t emanate from my campaign team. Nobody listens to any of those Obi’s speeches and does not get convinced that indeed, he holds the rod that can part the inhibitive Red Sea in the Nigerian political scene. I have deep respect for the Muslim faith and indeed, for every other religion. We will never mock any faith, ethnicity or gender.

We are one Nigeria. Ironically, his strongest critics are his Igbo folksmen, many of whom have disparaged Obi with scathing and unedifying remarks and commentaries.,” he tweeted. He joined the Labour party after he pulled out of the Presidential Primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in May. He has since been gaining popularity, especially among young people. He has continued in his effeminate tone, to push on his campaign for change and recovery of Nigeria, urging the youth to take back their country.
