More than two weeks after what many have described as the most controversial presidential election in Nigeria's recent democratic history, reactions have begun trailing a social media post made by Labour Party candidate, Peter Gregory Obi in which he shared pictures of his visit to the home of renowned Pentecostal Pastor and General Overseer of House On The Rock Church, Pastor Paul Adefarasin.
Taking to his verified Twitter handle a few hours ago, Obi, who stormed Lagos on Wednesday ahead of a 'Thank You' tour around the state, shared pictures of himself hanging out with the Adefarasin family in their home in Lekki.
Stating his reason for the visit, Obi revealed that he went to console the clergyman over the recent death of his mother.
He wrote; "Today, I paid a condolence visit to Pastor Paul Adefarasin on the demise of his mother, Mrs. Hilda Adefarasin. May God grant her eternal rest, and her family, the fortitude to bear the loss."
Check out his tweet and some pictures below:
As expected, Obi's tweet has generated quite a lot of mixed reactions from Nigerians online as many came out to share their thoughts.
Quite interestingly, a lot of persons lauded the former Anambra governor for not bearing grudges against anyone perceived to have been against his candidacy during the run-up to the presidential election.
