Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide, has urged supporters of Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi, known as Obidients, to understand his brand of politics.
Omokri, a staunch supporter of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, made the appeal in a post on his social media accounts on Tuesday.
The socio-political activist who claimed that the Obidients have helped him to achieve some successes, said he loves “their dedication to whatever they believe in”.
He said his defence of Atiku Abubakar was due to his membership of the PDP, stressing that jumping from one party to another has never been his belief.
He wrote, “I am very grateful to Obidients, because God used them to elevate me. One thing I love about them is their dedication to whatever they believe in.
“I really wish they could understand me. In the 23 year period of Nigeria’s Fourth Republic, I have only been associated with one political party-the Peoples Democratic Party.
“Jumping from party to party is not in my DNA. and party politics is not like trading. I can’t just mind my own store, like in a market.
“It is necessary for me to promote the party I believe in and denounce the ones I do not believe in. That is how party politics are played all over the world. Let us not take it personally. There is life after the 2023 election”.
