The Independent National Election Commission just held a presidential election, the results of which Nigerians are still discussing (INEC).
Atiku Abubakar of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Rabi'u Musa Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), and other candidates ran for president in the election. These included Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu, the former governor of Lagos State and presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, as well as Peter Gregory Obi, the former governor of Anambra State and presidential candidate of the Labor Party (LP).
Femi Fani-Kayode, a prominent APC member, a former special assistant to Olusegun Obasanjo, and former minister of culture and tourism of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, shared his opinions on the election on his official Twitter profile. He asserted that mentioning Peter Obi and Bola Tinubu in the same sentence was insulting and akin to associating stray dogs with ferocious lions.
Femi Fani-Kayode, a former director of news media and minister of advocacy for the presidential campaign committee of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, went even farther and urged Peter Obi's supporters to respect their stance.
Nigerians are still debating the most recent presidential election held by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Femi Fani-Kayode, the leader of the APC and a well-known politician, posted his opinions on the election on his official Twitter profile. Comparing Peter Obi to Bola Tinubu, in his opinion, is demeaning and is akin to equating stray dogs with ferocious lions. He also urged Peter Obi's followers to observe the law.
