In a Newspaper Magazine published by New York Times, the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) and the former Governor of Anambra state, Mr. Peter Obi was referred to as the ‘youngster who wants to clean up Nigeria’. In the publication, the New York Times reports that Peter Obi has two deep wells of support: young people, many of whom are cheering him up on social media, declaring themselves his ‘Obidients‘ and his own igbo ethnic group which largely has been shut out of politics at the highest level.
Some Nigerians have however reacted to this report published by the New York Times. Reacting to this reports, a twitter user with the handle name ‘Andy’s commented, “The headline they give me chills. E sweet me for belle… We move”.
Another twitter user commented, “Very soon they will address him as Mr. President”.
Below are some screenshots of the reactions and comments from Nigerians online;
