Omokri, who has been on a warpath with the former Anambra State governor, said on his X platform on Monday that Obi has nothing to offer as a politician.

He added that the LP candidate would not win a chairmanship contest in Lagos or Kano States.

Omokri also lambasted Obi’s supporters, saying they are suffering from mass hypnosis in their support for the LP chieftain.

He wrote: “Many Nigerians are controlled by their emotions as well as tribal pulls, and are not sentient enough to see beyond primordial sentiments.

“And that is what I see when people ask me why I oppose Peter Obi since he is the best candidate. Now, let us consider that statement on its merits.

“Finally on this score, if a person under whom poverty doubled is in rivalry with one under whom poverty almost halved and another who increased wealth in his domain by 78%, who would you expect to win?

“If you put ethnic sentiments aside, Peter Obi cannot compete with a Local Government Chairman in either Lagos or Kano.

“Regarding physical achievements in office, the Chairmen of Eti-Osa, Orile, Ibeju-Lekki, and Kosofe LGAs in Lagos outperform Obi.

“We play party politics in Nigeria, and of course, if a candidate is in your party, you try to package him and cover his faults.

“But after elections, you must do a post-mortem. Obi’s only purpose in 2023 was to decide the PDP’s votes and make it possible for the APC to win. And if he contests again in 2027, it will be rinse and repeat.

“You cannot expect a deep-thinking person like me to believe that Obi would transform Nigeria when he could not transform Anambra.

“I refuse to surrender my intellect because of the mass hypnosis that Obidients are labouring under. And if that means they will continue insulting me, then so be it.
