Peter Obi Will Lose 2027 Election If He Runs, Says Reno Omokri

Reno Omokri, Peter Obi

A popular social media influencer and former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan,Reno Omokri has declared that Peter Obi will suffer defeat in the 2027 presidential election if he chooses to run.

Omokri argued that Obi lacks a clear stance on key issues, unlike the new UK Prime Minister, Keir Starmer.

In a statement posted on social media, Omokri said there is need for a clear vision and alternative governance approach to win an election.

He criticized Obi for focusing on attacking the government and opponents rather than offering solutions. Omokri questioned Obi’s stance on various issues, including the Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway, ending insurgency in the Southeast, and fuel subsidy removal.

He said, ” One thing we learnt from the #UKElection2024 is this: If you want to win an election, focus on telling the public what you want to do first and how you would govern the country better.

“Do not concentrate on attacking the government in power or your other opponents. You could do that, but it should not be your single issue. You have to offer a better alternative to the public.

“That is why I am amused when people think Peter Obi is coming in 2027. If he contests again, he will only lose, and worse, he will divide the opposition’s vote and make President Tinubu’s re-election easier.

“Let me ask you a question. Where does Peter Obi stand on the issues? He is against the Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway. What are his alternatives to that policy? He attacks the Government over the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu but does not say how he will end the insurgency in the Southeast. And worse, he even obeys IPOB’s Monday sit-at-home.

“He attacked President Tinubu for ending fuel subsidy, yet he said he would not borrow. Therefore, how would he retain subsidy without borrowing or remove it without increasing inflation?

“Other than that, what does Peter Obi really stand for? He talks about ending consumption and increasing production, but he is Nigeria’s single largest individual importer through his trading business-next supermarket.

Omokri accused Obi of being the “head of the political wing of IPOB” and alleged that his only clear plan is to free Nnamdi Kanu and treat IPOB’s secessionist tendencies with “kid gloves.”

He contrasted Obi’s lack of clear policies with Keir Starmer’s well-defined stance on issues during the UK election campaigns.

Peter Obi, who ran for president in 2023 under the Labour Party, finished third in the election, behind winner Bola Tinubu and runner-up Atiku Abubakar.
