Mr Macaroni, a Nigerian comedian and content producer, has suggested that the defection of Peter Obi, a presidential contestant from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), offers a chance for the population to gather around another party.
Mr Macoroni made the statement in a tweet in response to the former governor’s resignation from the PDP.
Recall Mr. Obi announced his departure from the PDP on Wednesday, just days before the party’s presidential primary contest.
Through his campaign director, Doyin Okupe, the former Anambra State Governor is believed to have submitted his resignation letter to the PDP National Secretariat.
According to reports, Obi resigned because he was afraid of being humiliated during the convention in Abuja.
Mr Macaroni reacted to the news by telling youngsters that they can break the narrative that only the PDP and APC can win elections.
He advised Nigerian youngsters that Obi’s defection was an opportunity to unite, and that other parties should follow in the footsteps of the APC and PDP.
He wrote; “Alot of people pushed the narrative that only APC and PDP can win Elections even when some of us said we can change this narrative. We were mocked. People kept praising these 2 parties. Now we want to join the other parties that we have already made less popular.
“I hope we all realize that we can indeed change this narrative of its only PDP and APC and take advantage while we can. These parties don try. Make others sef come try.. We will be mocked but if truly the people are tired, The PEOPLE can change this narrative!!
“Finally, the motivation for us as the people who wish to rally around another party should not be because someone left PDP or APC. It should be because we are tired and because we want better. Because if na by that one, more Giants will leave APC and PDP soon… I rest my case”
