Controversial lawyer Festus Keyamo has described the supporters of Peter Obi as mentally weak.
In a long tweet posted on his social media handle, the chieftain of the All Progressives Congress lashed out at the ‘Obidients’ using all manner of words to describe them.
The APC chieftain in a tweet sighted by Legit.ng on Monday, April 10th, described Obi’s supporters, the Obidients, as “mentally weak”.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), in a Twitter post, said:
“It is evident that the so-called Obidients are MENTALLY WEAK. They threw all sorts of trash at other candidates, including ours, during the campaigns and we took it with equanimity and responded to all such jabs. They made memes, skits and caricatured the images of opponents and had fun until the reality check of Feb. 25th. But now that the heat has turned on them and their ‘hero’ in the last few days or weeks, they have obviously cracked with many loosing their heads. Just one audio sent them into a pitiful tailspin with close aides confirming and denying the audio all at the same time like a ragtag army. And with the avalanche of criticisms from unlikely quarters in the last few days, they have completely lost it. They are cursing and swearing at every perceived enemy and are beginning to sound forlorn. It is evidence of a weak mentality. But I have good news for them: it is time for the reasonable ones who are patriots amongst them to quickly exit that ignoble bubble and join hands with the in-coming administration to move this country forward. Anything short of that would be tantamount to continuously ‘living in bondage!’.”
Nigerians took to the comment section page of the APC chieftain on Twitter and reacted to the development.
In response to the tweet, Nigerians made comments under the post of Keyamo.
@ManLikeBright tweeted: “You sef wan sub, banger boy.”
@ndidinwange tweeted: “Leave Obidients. Tell your principal to respond to the petition. These are the issues, not the mental well-being of Obidients.”
@uncleprince tweeted: “May God forgive you and everyone that foist this man on Nigerians.”
“May God forgive you and everyone that foist this man on Nigerians.”
@GEAfolayan tweeted: “As a recipient of SAN, it is presumed that you have distinguished yourself as an accomplished legal professional or otherwise. Additionally, your appointment as a Minister of State is perhaps a further evidence of your dedication to serving your country or otherwise. However, I feel concerned about your recent actions, including your tweet posted in the late hours of the night.”
