Reno Omokri believes that The Labour Party Presidential Candidate is dishonest to Nigeria’s people, leading them astray with his words.
The Nigerian best-selling Author believes that Peter Obi is the wrong choice for the presidency of Nigeria. The belief is even though Obi enjoys popularity among the masses of the nation. His followers call themselves OBIdients.
While the Nigerian Author has received support from some following the claim, a vast majority of replies under his tweet were in favour of the labour Party Candidate. Twitter users defended Peter Obi’s words.
The language of dialogue is be to have an understanding, so he is not out of point for saying he wants to unite Nigeria.

The people believe that Peter Obi’s decision to hold a dialogue with the IPOB can still translate into good news for the unity of Nigeria. They think that he is on the right path in seeking to protect the unity of Nigeria.This is because a dialogue with a separatist group can lead to fruitful conclusions.
BAT said thesame thing too, that is how you know leaders who truly want to move the nation forward, Atiku keeps on avoiding discussion based on ipob , same way he is avoiding the Deborah debacle.
