One of those who have expressed fear and skepticism over Obi’s growing popularity, along with Obasanjo’s decision to back his presidential ambition, is Femi Fani-Kayode, a former aviation minister.
According to Fani-Kayode, the presidential standard-bearer for the Labor Party presents himself as humble and people-oriented, just as German warlord Adolf Hitler began.
In a statement shared on his Facebook page, FFK (as he is affectionately called) stated that “Like Peter, Adolf Hitler started out equally charming, humble and seductive, hiding his true colors long before he came to power.” .
The head of the Congress of All Progressives (APC) added that “in the end, all of Germany, and indeed the entire world, paid a heavy price for their folly.”

In addition to alleging that Obi persecuted non-Catholics, Muslims and non-indigenous people in Anambra, including northerners and Yorubas, FFK claimed that Obi and his running mate Yusuf Baba-Ahmed lead a large number of social media trolls. .
He accused Obi of refusing to condemn the brutal murders and murderers in the southeast, who kidnap and murder everyone.

He went on to state that Obi and Ahmed’s only mandate is to insult, denigrate, threaten, intimidate and attack anyone who disagrees with them.
The former minister believes that voting for Obi is like pushing Nigeria closer to a national split and civil war.
On Obasanjo’s endorsement of Obi, FFK said it stemmed from the former president’s personal dispute with APC presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Furthermore, the former minister stated that Obasanjo’s decision is wrong, sad, sinister and unfortunate.
“…I think your rabid opposition to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in particular is misplaced, sad and unfortunate.
“I also believe that it is rooted in something personal that is deeper, darker and more sinister than mere politics and this saddens me deeply.”
