Former President Muhammadu Buhari’s special assistant for digital communications, Bashir Ahmad, has expressed regret over Labor Party LP presidential candidate Peter Obi’s decision to remove a tweet describing Bola Tinubu as Mr. President.
Bashir described Obi’s actions as low because he can no longer control himself or his opinion.
Obi, who contests the declaration of Tinubu, the candidate of the Congress of All Progressives, as the winner of the last presidential elections, had condemned in a tweet the convoy of 120 cars of the president on his return from France.
He had tweeted: “Supposedly it shows Mr. President moving with a convoy of approximately 120 cars. While I have not had the opportunity to watch said video, my advice remains constant: sacrifices for a better Nigeria must start with leaders at all levels of government.”
He later deleted the tweet and posted a new one that replaced ‘Mr President’s’ 120-car convoy with ‘a trending caravan video.’
Condemning his action, Bashir wrote: “That was so low. I sincerely sympathize with Peter, the former Labor Party presidential candidate; so he no longer has control over himself or an opinion of himself.
“How can you delete a well-worded tweet calling your president mr president just because you were intimidated and dragged down by some people claiming to be your supporters?”
