Lauretta Onochie, the Special Assistant to the President on Social media, has lambasted the vice presidential candidate of the opposition party, Mr Peter Obi, alleging that he plans to impoverish the masses if elected in 2019.
Onochie made the accusation on Tuesday in a post she published on her Twitter handle.
She went further to trivialise the surname of the PDP presidential candidate to read ‘Obi-Tuary’ rather than simply Obi.
The presidential aide extolled incumbent Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, for his contributions towards the success of tradermoni programme approved by the federal government to assist petty traders in the country.
She tweeted: “This is what they are coming to stop They want to return to take food out of the mouth of these lovely Nigerians.
“For the first time, ordinary Nigerians have a share in our national wealth. There will be no Peter Obi-tuary for this scheme (TraderMoni). Thanks @ProfOsinbajo. Your the best.”
Onochie also claimed that Obi would rather than unite the nation, divide Nigerians along ethnic and religious lines.
“If as a leader in Anambra State, he divided predominantly Christian Anambra State along Christian Denomination Lines, he has no business in Abuja! When he says, #LetsGetNigeriaWorkingAgain, he means, let’s divide Nigeria along class, ethnic and religious lines. #NoToBigotry,” she tweeted.
