Reaction As Wike Retweets Post Mocking Peter Obi

Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, has stirred reactions on Twitter by reposting a tweet which derided the Labour Party candidate in the 2023 presidential election, Peter Obi. An APC supporter, Qudus Akanbi has mocked Obi following reports of his detention in the United Kingdom. He noted that the LP flagbearer was the first presidential candidate from Nigeria to be detained at an airport and he described it as shame to Nigerians.

Qudus with Twitter username @EleyiLagos wrote; “Fellow Nigerians meet Mr. Peter Obi, the first Presidential candidate in the world to be detained by The UK Government at Heathrow Airport. Obi is the first Presidential candidate to be jailed Abroad. Look at the records and see how Peter Obi dent and disgrace Nigerians.”

Just as the post was going viral, Wike with over 760k followers, retweeted the post to his timeline and it raised red flags. When he started facing backlash a result of his action, the governor quickly reversed the retweet, but it was too late as people had already taken screenshots. A recent check on his page shows that he has taken it down, but Nigerians still expressed displeasure especially because Obi consulted Wike on several occasions during campaigns.
