Obi had in a series of tweets on Sunday begged Nigerians to endure with the policy, saying it would benefit them in the long term.

Sowore, who reacted to the remark on his Twitter handle, said the LP candidate was in the presidential race to distract Nigerians from true liberation.

The activist likened Obi to his counterparts in the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.

Sowore wrote: “This what we keep telling Nigerians about Peter Obi, this is the candidate ‘owners’ of Nigeria presented to distract Nigerians from truest liberation so that they can remain in the shackles of oppression and perpetually in bondage. At the end, he is the same as his mentors!”
