A concern Nigerian simply identified as Seye Ogunrinola said ” Obi’s relationship with a Mad Man is yielding bad results. Just imagined what is coming out of a Presidential candidate. So irritating.
Also ,Wale Adeniran wrote ” the message by Peter Obi is a very reckless, divisive and irresponsible statement from a man who wants to be the president of the country.
“That he succeeded in pitching Anglicans and others against his Catholic due to unprecedented intra nepotistic style of governance does not and should not give him the courage to want to set us against each other as Nigerians.Nigeria does not belong to any religion. No one can islamize or christianize her. Nobody!
“This should be condemned by every Nigerian while he tenders apology and publicly withdraw the statement.
