Reactions As Obi Was Seen Talking & Laughing With Tinubu’s Lead Counsel At Abuja Court
An interesting clip making the rounds on social media showed Peter Obi, the presidential aspirant for the Labour Party, engaging in a friendly conversation with Wole Olanipekun, the lead counsel of the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The footage was taken inside the Court of Appeal in Abuja, during the pre-hearing of the presidential election petition, which began on May 8.
This clip captured a rare moment of camaraderie and friendliness in the often-divisive world of politics. Mike Ozekhome, SAN, was also seen in the video, laughing along with Peter Obi and Wole Olanipekun.
Social media users were quick to react to the video, with many expressing surprise and delight at seeing members of opposing political parties interacting in a friendly way. Some users pointed out that this was evidence that politics need not always be acrimonious and that people of different ideologies and beliefs can coexist peacefully.
This video is a reminder that despite our differences, we are all human beings with the capacity for kindness, empathy and understanding. It is a refreshing change from the often-toxic political discourse we see in the media, and a hopeful sign that we can come together, even in the face of significant disagreements and differences of opinion.
