“Differences of opinion are normal” – Peter Obi says as he condemns social media attacks on Pastor Adeboye over support for Tinubu

Peter Obi, the Presidential candidate of Labour Party has frowned at social media attacks aimed at General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.


He distanced himself and his supporters from such online attacks.


Adeboye was attacked on social media on Monday, May 8, after reports claimed he declared his support for President-elect, Bola Tinubu. Online reports claimed that the clergyman while speaking during a sermon on Sunday, May 7, declared that the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, can fix Nigeria with God’s help.


In a series of tweets post on his handle, Obi stated that some people were masquerading as Obidients to carry out the attacks on the clergyman.


“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.”
