Presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi has urged his supporters to be tolerant of other people’s views, dissent and divergent opinions
The former Anambra governor appealed to them to express themselves with grace “so as not to precipitately shut doors to future collaborations on sustainable nation-building”.
Mr Obi’s message follows the unending verbal clashes between his supporters and non-supporters of his presidential bid.
On Twitter, the former governor of Anambra State wrote: “I sincerely thank my supporters for believing in me and my commitment to building a united, secure and well-functioning Nigeria. However, I appeal once more that we should be tolerant of other people’s views, dissent and divergent opinions & possibly learn from them.
“While the frustration and anger in the country is understandable, we must strive to channel that energy positively in ways that will earn the support and collaboration of others.
“Even as our message continues to gain broad acceptance, there are some we still need to work to convince. In expressing ourselves, we should do so with grace so as not to precipitately shut doors to future collaborations on sustainable nation-building.”
