Former Senator representing Oyo South Senatorial District, Rilwan Akanbi, has cautioned the Labour Party presidential candidate in the just concluded election, Peter Obi, that his recent comments and actions are beginning to turn him into a joke, and that he needs to watch his behaviour and utterances so that he does not end up ruining the chances of South-East producing the President of the country in future.
In the report which was made by Vanguard, the All Progressives Congress chieftain said that due to the political nature of Nigeria, it was expected that there was going to be reactions from the opposition after losing the election, but that the treacherous dimension the entire scene has now taken is becoming a risk for the unity of Nigeria, if it is not stopped.
He said that when the APC candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, was declared as winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), he commended Peter Obi for the political strength he showed, adding that Obi's recent actions are becoming worrisome.
He said - "It was one election that those described as the untouchables were cornered to political irrelevance by the votes of the people. So we can only expect improvement upon what we now have, which to a large extent has recorded progress. Recent development in the political space, especially the comments, action and inaction of Mr Peter Obi over the election is beginning to turn him into a pun."
