What Wole Soyinka said about Peter Obi/LP is obvious bitter truth - Reno Omokri

Reno Omokri, a former presidential aid, has reacted to the speech of Professor Woke Soyinka.

The Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, said that the Labour Party's (LP) leadership was well aware of their presidential candidate, Peter Obi's, defeat in the February 25, 2023, election.

Soyinka articulated this on Wednesday in South Africa during a gathering titled "The Lives of Wole Soyinka: A Dialogue," organized by Africa in the World, read here

Reacting to this, Mr Omokri said via his X (Twitter) account "this is obvious bitter truth, Peter Obi lost the election.

According to him, "What Professor Wole Soyinka said in South Africa is the obvious bitter truth. There is no controversy whatsoever. Peter Obi lost the election. Even before the election, Peter knew he would lose. 

"He had a concentration of votes only in the Southeast, for ethnic reasons, and clusters in places where members of his ethnic group had migrated in large numbers. But he lacked national spread and made little attempts to tailor his message to appeal to other Nigerian sub-national ethnicities beyond those tangential to his.

"So, you guys ought to stop insulting Professor Soyinka. Your guy lost. Wake up. Smell the coffee. Stop drinking the Kool-Aid and accept reality! The only purpose Mr. Obi served was to allow himself be deceived by the APC to split the PDP's votes and hand an easy victory to President Bola Tinubu. In other words, he was a mere pawn. Deal with it!

"And to insist that a third-place loser won is to stubbornly cause tension in the country unnecessarily. At best, Obi is now a tribal leader. He refused to learn from history and repeated the mistake of Nnamdi Azikiwe, who started out as Zik of Africa and then allowed himself to be pigeonholed into being the Owelle of Onitsha.

"And the leaked Yes Daddy audio has further sealed his fate FOREVER as a fringe politician who will never go mainstream. Let Nigeria breathe. Obi will never be President of a united Nigeria."
