Nigerian professor and political analyst, professor Abiodun Adeniyi has opined that the presidential candidate of labour party, Peter Obi has faced many kinds of verbal attack since the campaign started and he has been able to handle it very well.
Professor Abiodun Adeniyi however expressed concern over the fact that the supporters of the former governor of Anambra state, Petet Obi may not be able to manage some of the verbal attacks as Peter Obi would and this could be an issue.
Abiodun Adeniyi made this remark when he was reacting to some of the derogatory comments reportedly made by the vice presidential candidate of the all progressives congress, Kashim Shettima on Peter Obi.
According to Abiodun Adeniyi, even though we are in campaign season, it is still important that candidates conduct themselves in a manner that would not jeopardize the peace anticipated for the campaign season.
Abiodun Adeniyi stated “I know Peter Obi for instance has faced so many kinds of attack, often times he seems to have handled it very well but what about his followers?”
Abiodun Adeniyi made this remark during an interview between the 9th and 10th minute.
