I Observed That Obi Did Not Go To Any Mosque Or Muslim Gathering To Campaign - Tawfiq Akinwale

The Labour Party governorship candidate in Oyo State in the 2023 election, Tawfiq Akinwale, has accused the party's presidential candidate, Peter Obi, of being a bigot that should not be trusted with the leadership of Nigeria. In an interview with Symfoni News, which was also reported by Sahara Reporters, Akinwale said that the country would have been in serious trouble if Obi had won the February 25th presidential election.

Speaking further, Akinwale said that he noticed that during his campaigns, Peter Obi did not go to any mosque or to any Muslim gathering to campaign, adding that these were the things he looked at and concluded that Obi was intolerant to other Nigerians that are Muslims.

He said - "Hadn't I talked about his attitude before the leaked conversation (with Bishop David Oyedepo), people would have said I only linked it to the audio because I did not tell the world. It was two days I told the world about his attitude that this leaked audio came out.

"And I observed also that he did not go to any mosque nor go to any Muslim gathering to campaign. These are the things that I put together and say this one is not tolerant at all."

Below is a screenshot of the report by Sahara Reporters:

Akinwale's statement has been generating a lot of reactions on social media, especially as this is coming from someone that's a governorship candidate of the Labour Party.
