Nigerians React To Peter Obi’s Performance At ‘The Candidates’
Several reactions have trailed the performance of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) vice presidential candidate Peter Obi during “The Candidates” programme.
The Triangle News understands that “The Candidates” is a programme anchored by veteran journalist Kadaria Ahmed to give political office seekers a platform to tell the masses about their plans.
It was held on Wednesday with Obi and Atiku Abubakar who is the PDP presidential candidate in attendance.
While reacting to the programme, many Nigerians on Twitter hailed Obi who is a former governor of Anambra State for his analytical skills.
According to them, Obi explained the PDP’s vision in laymen’s term and thus drove his points home.
However, they were others who expressed dissatisfaction at his performance, accusing him of bandying incorrect figures.
The Triangle News captured some of the comments as seen below:
Pretty sure Kadaria was given Questions by BMC in order to rattle Atiku & Peter Obi & make them a laughing stock but to her surprise she is getting Shutdown like PC with low battery. She thinks she is talking to someone that Forged WAEC Certificate #NgTheCandidates
Peter Obi doesn’t realize that his figures are confusing and he only ends up fudging the numbers and further destroying his own credibility- all in a bid to show us he is ‘smart’.
Dude, show us your heart, not your brain. This is politics, not a classroom.#NgTheCandidates
Someone should inform Peter Obi that the rate of success of looted funds’ recovery as well as the closing of gaps for corruption is why Nigeria has the largest infrastructural development under-going right now unlike the last 16 years. #NGTheCandidates #AtikuNeverAgain
90% of Igbos ‘ll vote Atiku & its not because he picked Peter Obi. In 2003,Buhari picked Chuba Okadigbo & Igbos voted OBJ
Igbos ‘re bizness folks,they know a bad market when they see one.Igbos don’t hate Buhari,they hate the poverty associated with him &his govt

Atiku/Obi tried to prepare for the corruption question but the truth is there is no justification for these questionable acts they took while in office. Absolutely none. #NgTheCandidates
