Why Peter Obi Is Reduced To Social Media Sensation - Reuben Abati

Nigerian broadcaster and one-time presidential assistant Dr. Reuben Abati has stated that Labour Party presidential contender Mr. Peter Obi has been reduced to a social media sensation due to the fact that Nigerians don't appreciate ideas.

His argument is that those who might do a better job of bringing the country forward are denied the chance to run.

Reuben Abati, in a social media post, mentioned other politicians who are qualified but have not been given the chance, like Kingsley Moghalu, Omoyele Sowore, and others.

"Ironically, more qualified candidates who may have been on the ballot were forced to withdraw from consideration. To what end has Peter Obi been reduced to a meme? Ideas. We haven't been able to secure any firm promises. No one pays attention to ideas because those who are willing to advocate for them are not given a platform. Those who attempt to be creative outside of partisan lines are often met with hostility." The Facebook post came from Abati.
