Member of the House of Representative-elect, Amobi Godwin Ogah, who was elected on the platform of Labour party to represent Isuikwuato/Umunneochi Federal Constituency, caused a stir online when he openly praised President Tinubu for his brilliance and preparedness to serve Nigeria.
While speaking to newsmen after he and other National Assembly elect-members met with President Tinubu on Wednesday night, June 7, said;
‘’Well, I can tell you that today is my best day, today I’m so happy that I’m an elected member seeing my President talking. In fact I’ve never knew that this man is so intelligent. I’ve never knew that this man is so Prepared to serve this country. I saw the love, I saw the character, I saw the the Charisma. The believe that Nigeria can be a better nation. So I’m so glad that the meeting we have today is going to take us a little bit to a more stabilized house. Now, Even without talking to us again, we’ve agreed that we are going towards the government decision. Not minding, I’m of Labour Party. As at now, the party is not the issue; we’re talking about building the Nation, we’re talking about the unity of the Nation.”
His positive appraisal of President Tinubu has caused a debate on social media because the Presidential candidate of his party, Peter Obi, is currently in court challenging Tinubu’s emergence as President. Many felt his positive comments on President Tinubu is a ‘’betrayal” to his party and Peter Obi.
