Peter ‘Mr P’ Okoye, the singer, has reacted to a video wherein Seun Kuti described Peter Obi as “an opportunist who cannot rescue Nigeria.”
In an interview with ‘TheMicOnPodcast’, Seun argued that no politician can save Nigeria except for Nigerians themselves.
The singer described the Labour Party’s presidential candidate as the internet’s favourite who he claimed might not rescue Nigeria from its current challenges even if he won the election.
He also referred to Obi as “an opportunist who started a movement” after losing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primaries.
“He hasn’t had the time because he started too late. You can’t be telling me that just because you lost PDP primaries 18 months before the election, you suddenly started a movement, and you have a plan for the country,” he said.
“No, that’s opportunism. And it’s not an opportunist that will deliver Nigeria—not jumping on Labour Party. The Labour Party has a socialist structure. Peter Obi is a capitalist. Where are they going?”
Apparently infuriated by his colleague’s viewpoint on Obi, Mr P took to social media to berate Kuti.
“Dude just erased his father’s history! You said only the people of Nigeria can save Nigeria! Is PO and the rest of the candidates not the Nigerian people? Shame! Shame!! Shame!!! So disappointed,” he said.
On Twitter, Peter took several shots at Kuti while asking him to manage his frustrations and comport himself.
“I understand your frustration but realize that the sky is big enough for all birds to fly. @burnaboy and other great artistes have climbed on our great Fela’s ladder to blow. Comport your self and pray to your god. My God has blessed my destiny & i’ll 4ever remain thankful. I’ll surely keep you in my prayers. Learn from your nephew @Madekuti cos he is well guided and clean,” he said.
