Nigerian comedian, Seyi Law, has threatened supporters of the Labour Party (LP) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) angry over the outcome of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT).
Naija News reports that PEPT on Wednesday affirmed the victory of President Bola Tinubu in the 2023 election and struck out the petitions of Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar.
The judgement has generated mixed reactions from many Nigerians and political elites who claimed the judiciary was compromised.
In a post shared on Instagram, Seyi said those angered by the final verdict and attempt to protest or destroy properties in Lagos State do so to their detriment.
He wrote: “If dem burn you well, just light matches near Lagos properties in the name of anger. Body go tell you.”
Reacting to the post, Nigerian gospel singer and former international disc jockey, DJ Gosporella, cautioned Seyi, saying that no LP supporter would want to engage in violence but want a better Nigerian built on justifiable foundation.
He wrote: “Seyi, why would anybody want to do that? You don’t destroy what you are protecting. The Obidients want a better Nigeria for everybody built on justifiable foundations. You know it would have been a different case if the tables were turned around. But again, everybody is entitled to their opinion. Nigeria won’t burn, but something has shifted, and we will all witness it. God bless Nigeria”
Responding to the singer, Seyi wrote: “@djgosporella Sir, it is only obidients that want better for Nigeria. It is pure fallacy. Let’s stop it abeg. Nobody, I repeat. Nobody I have met that is more patriotic about Nigeria as I am. My choice and stand to vote in Tinubu is a personal conviction that I can defend with my life. I will criticise him constructively, and I will support him strongly without fear.
“No man is a messiah of another. None. People can not abuse me and insult my family carelessly and hope that it will end there. I know and believe Nigeria will make giant leaps under Tinubu. Nobody in the name of obidients will intimidate me to submission. If I was paid to support Tinubu, let God judge, but if it was from a place of sincerity and belief in his ability to make Nigeria better, may God help me be better, and Nigeria greater.”
