A former Governor of Edo state and ex-National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has been called out by social media users over his comment on supporters of Peter Obi.
Obi is the Presidential candidate of Labour Party.
Oshiomhole had during an interview on Arise News today vowed to confront Peter Obi supporters should they abuse him.
When told that supporters of Obi will come after him if he criticises their candidate, Oshiomhole swiftly replied, “I will come after them.”
The former Governor also warned the supporters of the LP presidential candidate not to attack him over his political ideology.
Oshiomhole said that time will tell if Obi supporters were really obedient in the political process of Nigeria ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
Following the development, supporters of the former Governor of Anambra State took to the micro-blogging platform, Twitter to react to the issue.
