In an unexpected turn of events at the presidential election tribunal today, Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the LP party, inadvertently found himself in the midst of controversy when he was caught on camera taking an unplanned nap.
The incident quickly spread across social media platforms, triggering a wave of reactions.
Social media users were quick to express their surprise and disappointment at Obi’s seemingly inattentive behavior during such a crucial and significant event.
Many questioned why a presidential candidate would allow himself to doze off, especially when his own followers had previously criticized Tinubu for similar incidents, claiming they were signs of poor health.
The incident fueled debates among netizens, with some defending Obi’s momentary lapse , they argued that sleep deprivation and exhaustion are common challenges faced by individuals in high-stress roles.
On the other hand, critics seized the opportunity to highlight the irony of Obi’s followers previously mocking Tinubu claiming that it indicated a lack of fitness for office. They argued that if they were quick to criticize Tinubu, then it was fair to scrutinize Obi’s brief moment of rest.
