Former presidential aide Reno Omokri has opened up on what would have happened if the People’s Democratic Party, PDP had fielded Peter Obi as its presidential candidate.
Recall that it was earlier reported that Obi dumped the PDP and tendered his resignation letter at the PDP National Secretariat, through his campaign director, Doyin Okupe.
Reports have it that the former governor of Anambra state left the party out of fear of being humiliated at the convention in Abuja.
Reacting to the resignation, Reno stated that the PDP would have lost the election if Peter Obi had emerged as the presidential candidate.
He wrote: “Did I not say it?
If the PDP had fielded Peter Obi, they would have LOST big time.
Peter Obi is a decent man and someone I believe would have made a good President, but his online followers made him so unpopular and toxic with every region outside the Southeast. They know themselves. Insulting and threatening. Impervious to counsel. As if only them could have made him President.”
In another post, he wrote: “We have seen a premature result of the aggressive campaign strategy of selling your aspirant to those you want to vote for him by insulting and threatening them.
I have never seen such a tactless and wrongheaded method.
You counsel them, and they will insult you. They are the only ones who know politics. They are political geniuses.
Has it not happened exactly as I said it?
They just destroyed a good man!”
