The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, has described as “slimy and deceptive,” comments by the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, in which he (Obi) condemned the social media attacks by his supporters on the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, and other individuals.

Sowore noted that Obi’s strategies had backfired, citing the LP flag bearer’s reportedly leaked telephone conversation with the founder of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo.

In a series of tweets on Wednesday night, Obi had claimed that his supporters, popularly known as Obidients, were law-abiding citizens, alleging that the opposition parties deployed such methods to gain undue advantage and create confusion and bad blood.

Obi had said, “The use of subterfuge by people masquerading as Obidients to abuse and insult eminent personalities like Most Reverend Pastor Enoch Adeboye or anyone else is most unacceptable. Obidients are by and large, law-abiding citizens.
