‘Most unacceptable’ — Peter Obi says people disguising as his supporters to insult Pastor Adeboye
Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), says some people are masquerading as his supporters to insult Enoch Adeboye, general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
Obi in a post on his official Twitter handle on Wednesday, said abuse or insult of eminent personalities is “most unacceptable”.
He called on his supporters to refrain from name-calling and abusing people.
“The use of subterfuge by people masquerading as Obidients to abuse and insult eminent personalities like Most Reverend Pastor Enoch Adeboye or anyone else is most unacceptable. Obidients are by and large, law-abiding citizens,” Obi said.
“While differences of opinion are normal, calculated efforts to create ethnic or religious chasm all in the name of politics should not in any way be tolerated. As a person, I eschew name-calling, insults, and abuses, likewise most of my supporters.
“The suggestion that some in the fringes engage in such conduct casually overlooks the fact that the political opposition deploys such methods to gain undue advantage and create confusion and bad blood.”
