INEC ‘likes’ tweet of Obi being called an opportunist


The Independent National Electoral Commission has liked the tweet of a news report where Mr Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate, was described as an “opportunist” and a “capitalist.”

INEC’s official Twitter page liked a Premium Times report titled “Peter Obi: An opportunist, won’t save Nigeria – Seun Kuti”.

Kuti in the news report said: “He hasn’t had the time because he started too late. You can’t be telling me that just because you lost PDP primaries 18 months before the election, you suddenly started a movement, and you have a plan for the country,” Mr Kuti explained.

He added, “No, that’s opportunism. And it’s not an opportunist that will deliver Nigeria—not jumping on Labour Party. The Labour Party has a socialist structure. Peter Obi is a capitalist. Where are they going?”
