The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi has met with Femi Kuti amid the purported threats against the Afrobeat singer.
Femi, on Friday August 12, alleged that some people were threatening to burn down the New Afrika Shrine in Ikeja over some media reports claiming he called Peter Obi’s ‘zombies’.
The 60-year-old said this in a video posted on Instagram on Friday night where he insisted he never called Obi’s supporters better known as Obidients, ‘zombies’.
In a new video making the rounds, Obi clarified the nature of his campaign after meeting the singer.
The former Anambra governor assured Femi that his “Obidient movement” will focus its campaign on issues rather than personality attacks.
The presidential hopeful also disclosed that he saw Kuti’s public statements and decided to visit the singer so as to set the record straight.
“I saw what he tweeted and I said, no. That’s not the future of the society we want to build. We need a campaign based on issues that affect Nigeria. That’s what I [already told] everybody to do,” Obi could be seen saying.
