Why Peter Obi Should Stop Attending Events Like Arise TV Town Hall Meeting
Investigative journalist, David Hundeyin has explained why Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi should stop attending media events organized by TV stations.
Naturenex reports that David Hundeyin explained that Peter Obi is being set up and rough up on national television.
Read his tweets below:
‘I do not believe Peter Obi gained anything from taking part in whatever that was on Arise TV last night.
No incumbent party candidate, a horribly biased host and the 3rd candidate sent his vice and Dino Melaye with instructions to heckle Obi.
I personally would have pulled out.
In the aftermath, nobody is talking about whatever points PO made. Everyone is rather talking about the Jerry Springer show that Reuben Abati, Dino Melaye and Ifeanyi Okowa put on.
That was the goal. To rough up Peter Obi on national TV and devalue his candidacy.’

Reacting to the tweet, an Obidient, Uche Okoye wrote:
‘If he had pulled out he would have become the topic for the candidates. If you notice they were all taking a shot at him at every point.’
David Hundeyin replied:
‘Tinubu is the incumbent party’s candidate. The onus is and should always be on him because this election is essentially a referendum on APC, NOT Peter Obi/LP.
I think the Labour Party needs to stop playing into APC/PDP’s games.’
Others who reacted to his tweets, said:
Otu Uke: Sticky Atiku & Tinubu like 2 act like they’re too big 2 share a stage with him. Meanwhile Obi is bigger than 2 of them together. Obi shud up his vawulence. Peace is not an option please. Let’s face INEC. This election is like a gunfight. Let’s stop showing up with flowers
Tomiii: Obi won’t back down from any intellectual discussion even if he has to face lions.
Tinubu has shown not to be interested in anything like that. So is Peter Obi contesting because of Tinubu?
Every opportunity to talk to Nigerians is a good opportunity and he did excellent!
ProfC : On a 2nd thot-!It was ok though that he faced them and debunked a lot of their nonsense. They brought their fact checkers because of PO but he ended up fact checking them
