Nigerians on social media have reacted to a photo of the former Anambra state governor and presidential aspirant, Peter Obi boarding a commercial flight at Lagos airport.
Naija News understands that the presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi, visited the Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, on Wednesday.
Obi, who was received by the state governor, urged the PDP in the state to embrace justice, fairness, and equity in the selection of the candidate to fly the party’s flag in the 2023 presidential election.
However, Nigerians were rather keen at the humble act of the presidential aspirant boarding a commercial flight to Edo.
While some commended the act, others frowned at it.

One thesolaodeku_ wrote; ”I don’t think this is Peter Obi doing anything for the media. In 2010, at the Abuja airport I sat 4 seats away from him in the waiting space. He was also warring a black native and carrying a black bag. It’s not an election thing, it’s his nature.”

One Daniel Regha wrote; “Peter Obi deciding to fly economy while most aspirants are flying jets, doesn’t automatically make him the most credible aspirant; & truth be told u using this as a campaign strategy will do him more harm than good cos his critics will try Politicising it. Mind what u publicize.”
One @novjb wrote; “Obi always books economy on flights since his days as governor.”
One Appeal wrote; “Abeg don’t come with whatever anybody uses as a means of transportation, dem go talk. Now say buhari been no get house, say obi dey use Sam script, by the way u doing a great job.”
