Pastor Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), had faced severe criticism after declaring that the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, could fix Nigeria with the help of God.

Using various social media platforms, Obi’s supporters unleashed a wave of verbal attacks on Pastor Adeboye, following the pattern they had previously employed against Professor Wole Soyinka.

However, Obi took to his official Twitter handle on Wednesday to disapprove of the deception employed by individuals posing as Obidients to insult and demean notable figures like Pastor Adeboye.

The presidential candidate urged his supporters to refrain from engaging in name-calling and verbal abuse. He emphasized that while differences of opinion are normal, it is entirely unacceptable to purposefully create ethnic or religious divisions in the name of politics.

“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,” Obi said.

“While differences of opinion are normal, calculated efforts to create ethnic or religious chasm all in the name of politics should not in any way be tolerated. As a person, I eschew name-calling, insults, and abuses, likewise most of my supporters.

“The suggestion that some in the fringes engage in such conduct casually overlooks the fact that the political opposition deploys such methods to gain undue advantage and create confusion and bad blood.”
