A viral video has revealed a mild drama between supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and Reno Omokri, a staunch supporter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, in front of Chatham House in London.
Tinubu on Monday spoke to Nigerians in the Diaspora on why he should be elected in 2023.
In the video, Omokri and Tinubu’s supporters were seen locked in a shouting match.
While Omokri shouted “Tinubu, drugs, Tinubu, heroine,” in an apparent dig at the APC presidential candidate, his voice was drowned in the chorus of Tinubu’s supporters who held placards and exclaimed, “Tinubu for President.” They also sang, “On your mandate we shall stand.”
In another video at the venue, Omokri and some persons holding placards were seen shouting, “Tinubu, ole (thief).”
Tinubu addressed the audience at Chatham House on his plans for Nigeria if he emerged as the president in 2023.
After his presentation, some members of the audience asked him some questions bordering on insecurity, oil theft, education and economy and how he planned to address crises in those areas if he became president.
As he was asked by the moderator to respond to the questions, Tinubu said he would assign some members of his entourage to do so.
The former Lagos State governor assigned Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State to speak on how his (Tinubu-led) government would address insecurity and asked the Director of Strategic Communication of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, Dele Aleke, to respond to the question on oil theft.
Tinubu also delegated a former Commissioner for Finance in Lagos State, Wale Edun, to respond to a question on how he (Tinubu) would boost the economy if elected.
Below are some of the reactions from Nigerians on Twitter:
