According to Reno Omokri, a former media advisor to former president Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria would have entered a second civil war if the Presidential Election Petition Court’s ruling had favored Peter Obi of the Labour Party.
Platinum Times reminds readers that the Presidential Election Petition Court yesterday ruled that President Bola Tinubu was not found guilty in the United States and that he did not require a majority of votes in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to be declared president, contrary to the claims made in the petitions of the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Omokri expressed his appreciation for the decision via his X page, emphasizing that if Obi’s petitions had been granted, Nigeria would have been plunged into a civil war.
“If Peter Obi had won the #NigerianElections2023 , or at the Presidential Election Petition Court, there would have been a civil war in Nigeria. Not may. Would. Why? Because he and his Obidients were just too arrogant and were already recreating, and would have further recreated the events that led up to the Nigerian Civil War.”
He claimed Obi’s supporters “were more fascistic than Mussolini”, while alleging that “after Peter Obi lost, prominent Obidients with direct ties to Peter Obi were openly calling for a military coup to restore Obi’s mandate.
