Former presidential media aide, Reno Omokri has apologized to presidential aspirant, Peter Obi for his comments on a television program.
Reno’s apology is coming after Peter Obi cautioned his supporters to refrain from attacking the personality of other aspirants and candidates under the guise of support his presidential bid.
During his interview on Arise TV, Omokri had described Obi as opportunistic for dumping PDP for Labour Party, adding that LP conflicts his (Obi’s) ideology.
Taking to his Twitter account, Omokri apologized for the statement.
He wrote: “I have just spoken to @PeterObi. I apologise for my comments on AriseTV, and Peter told me to inform the public that certain persons on Twitter and other social media, who have alienated him from so many, do not speak for him or his campaign. He will also be tweeting a statement.”
He added, “Actually, @PeterObi called me. I did not call him. I am tagging him. I apologised. He publicly took the advise I gave and made a PUBLIC appeal to you, his followers, to desist from alienating him from his friends. Please allow this issue rest. God bless you.”
