Popular social media personality Daddy Freeze has reacted to the statement of Omoyele Sowore where he had called out the former president of Nigeria Chief Olusegun Obasanjo for calling for the cancellation of the 2023 general election that was held on Saturday 25th.
Recall that ex-president Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, in his open letter and his address made to President Muhammadu Buhari, INEC chairman and the public on Monday 27th, had called for the cancellation of the 2023 presidential election, because according to him, there have been a lot of irregularities in the process.
Responding to Obasanjo, Nigeria Human Rights Activist Omoyele Sowore, in a post made via his official Twitter handle had said that the former president of Nigeria is not even in the position to correct or speak about the irregularities in the election process that just took place in Nigeria, because he (Obasanjo) started it himself.
However, Daddy Freeze who will not outrightly fault Sowore's statement nor be in total support of what Obasanjo said, had revealed that even though the 2023 election process might not have gone as people had expected, the cancellation of it would therefore mean total setbacks for Nigeria.
In a live broadcast made via his Instagram handle, Daddy Freeze asked, "Does Obasanjo have the right to make the statement he made concerning the credibility of elections? Is Sowore right for criticizing him?"
According to the social media influencer, Obasanjo is someone he so much respects but he would not take to his advice that the 2023 general elections should be cancelled.
"My problem is many of you are so sentimental, and because Obasanjo is saying what sounds like what you wanted to hear doesn't mean he's saying what you ought to hear. If we follow Obasanjo's part and they cancel this election, these our lovely brothers and sisters that have kept us where we are today will continue being in office for an extended period."
In a further statement, Daddy Freeze said that even though his candidate may not win, he would prefer any other opponent who wins to become the next president of Nigeria than having those who are there currently remain in power when their tenure ends.
