“That is why I laugh at those who say Obi will win. The Northwest and Southwest will determine this election. Obi is not even in the running. Oya, insult!”

Netizens react to Omokri’s tweet

Meanwhile, a couple of comments on his tweet posited that if Obi was not as important as he has always claimed he wouldn’t be talking about him.

Reacting to Omokri’s tweet, Bamidele Adeleye said:

“The only reason why @renoomokri can’t stop talking about @PeterObi is because Obi is important, and there is possibility that he might win the election.

“There are other candidates, but Reno doesn’t care about them because they are less important. Don’t stop talking Reno.”

In a counter tweet, @SulymanHakym, said:

“Sorry to inform you bro your narrative doesn’t add up cos Obi is less known in the north. The main reason he keeps mentioning Obi is cos Obi vote will reduce PDP vote in the south-east and that was PDP’s major stronghold in the last election.”
