This Is Why Peter Obi Is Trending On Twitter

Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 elections, has described the sit-at-home directives in the south-east as the hand work of a criminal enterprise. In a statement posted on his official Twitter page on Thursday, Peter Obi said the sit-at-home orders have been denied by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), and called on security agencies to take urgent steps to deal with the heightened insecurity and crime across the country.

Peter Obi also commended south-eastern governors for their efforts in curbing criminal activities in the region, and asked for more strategic and intelligence-driven approaches to reduce the suffering on citizens.

According to his words; “The situation in the Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau state has raised a lot of anxiety because of the number of lives and properties lost with very little resistance from security operatives.

“Also disturbing is the continued disruption of business and social activities in the South East region over the Sit-at-Home directive purported to be coming from the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, (IPOB) when the body has publicly denied issuing such directive.

“What is going on in the South East therefore is essentially a criminal activity that must be nipped in the bud, with all hands being on deck, security agencies, and the people alike.

“The South East Governors are to be commended for their renewed efforts at curbing this menace but there is a need to be more strategic and intelligence-driven in our approach to reducing the suffering of innocent people.

“Security agencies should take necessary and quick steps to arrest the ugly incidents because the country cannot just be spilling the blood of innocent citizens. We as a people through our various governments should up our value for human lives in the way and manner we respond to issues that touch lives.

“The implications of an insecure environment for development are far-reaching because no investor will consider going to an area where their resources will not be safe and secured.”

Peter Obi called on religious, traditional leaders and stakeholders to continue pushing for peace among their people, and called on governments at all levels to take urgent steps to address the widespread poverty and youth unemployment in the land.

According to his words; “Therefore, I will like to urge critical stakeholders in these areas, traditional, Christian, and Muslim leaders to continue pushing for peace among their people in the way and manner they conduct themselves. The various governments at all levels should also take deliberate steps to address the issue of poverty and youth unemployment because the provision of stomach infrastructure is the surer way to tackle insecurity. Also, urgent steps should be taken consciously and intentionally to ameliorate the hardship of the people,” Mr. Peter Obi stated.

In reaction to Peter Obi tweet which is currently trending on Twitter, Simon Ekpa who currently stands as the Prime Minister of IPOB in Exile has stated that he is the one that actually issued the directives of sit-at-home-order. He also stated that he and his faction are the real IPOB and that others like the DOS are all fake. Reacting to Peter Obi tweet, he stated that Peter Obi is now acting as a spokesman of IPOB.

Recall that Simon Ekpa on 23rd January 2023, accused Peter Obi of being a member of IPOB both physically, spiritually and otherwise. However, opposition party like the APC is now using this trend to attack Peter Obi on social media, with the aim to destroy his petition against their candidate and current President of Nigeria Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Because Peter is challenging the outcome of the 2023 Presidential election at the Election Petition Tribunal.
