The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the February 25 election, Peter Obi, has described the attack on the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch A. Adeboye, as unacceptable.
Recall that, the cleric was recently dragged on social media by persons who were speculated to be supporters of the Obi/Datti movement.
However, in a statement issued on Wednesday, Obi distanced himself and his supporters from such actions, maintaining that he eschews name-calling, insults, and abuses, likewise Obidients; describing them as law-abiding citizens.
The statement read, “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.
“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. – PO”
