Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi has told his supporters to allow him personally respond to opposing candidates when they make remarks about him.

The former Anambra State Governor made the appeal via his official Twitter page on Monday.

In his tweets, he asked his supporters to instead, place their focus on issues that will help create “a better Nigeria.”

“I most sincerely appreciate all my supporters and those of LP. I love you all,” he tweeted.

“I wish to appeal to you to allow me to personally respond to any candidate that makes comments about me, while you concentrate on issues to promote our cause of moving our dear Nigeria from consumption to production, create jobs, and generally evolve a better Nigeria – PO.”

Ever since he declared his ambition to run for president in March, Obi has continued to garner followership, especially on social media.

This is not the first time Obi has appealed to his followers not to attack other candidates on social media platforms.

In an earlier tweet, Obi asked his followers to “imbibe the spirit of sportsmanship” and treat other candidates with respect.

“Whilst thanking you for your support, which I sincerely value and appreciate, I humbly appeal that we all imbibe the spirit of sportsmanship and avoid name-calling or personal attacks on other aspirants and candidates.”
