Recall that after the incumbent Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, indicated interest to contest for the 2023 Presidential election, a number of famous Nigerian footballers have been paying him visits to indicate their support for him. They include John Mikel Obi and Kelechi Iheanacho. Others are Former stars like Austin Jay-Jay Okocha, Kanu Nwankwo, Tijani Babangida and Garba Lawal.
However, after the duo of Obi's and Iheanacho's visit to the Governor, popular human rights activist and owner of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, took to his official Twitter account where he tweeted a post in which he said: opportunists are in a gold Rush to Kogi. It was Mikel Obi the other day. And now it is opportunistic Kelechi Iheanacho. Crying shame!"
In response, Reno Omokri lashed out at him by saying "when he was romancing with Buhari, El-Rufai and Sanusi, he did not think it was opportunistic. Now that Mikel Obi and Kelechi Iheanacho visited Yahaya, he calls them opportunists. Better be an opportunist than a blackmailer."
Do you agree with Yele Sowore that Mikel Obi and Iheanacho are opportunists?
