Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, has come under fire for proposing that Nigeria shift from a consumption-based to a production-based economy.
Obi has been advocating for the need to immediately restore Nigeria’s economy so that Nigerians can benefit from it.
Reno Omokri, a social activist, compared Obi to Satan who is fighting against sin.
The LP presidential contender, according to Omokri, is Nigeria’s top consumer goods importer.
Omokri claimed in a series of tweets that Obi imports booze while promoting the idea of making Nigeria a consumer country.
According to Omokri: “Peter Obi is the single greatest contributor to consumption in Nigeria. He imports almost everything from A to Z, including beer and alcoholic drinks.
“Yet, he campaigns on turning Nigeria from consumption to production? It is like Satan campaigning against sin!
“Enter any major supermarket in Nigeria. At least 15% of what you will see was imported into Nigeria by @PeterObi. Not manufactured.
“IMPORTED. If I am lying, I challenge Peter to sue me. And this is the fellow who wants to move Nigeria from consumption to production?”
