Reckless Display of Raw Power:

In a statement issued by Mr. Diran Onifade, the head of the Obi-Datti Media Office, the convoy accompanying President Tinubu was described as an “outlandish display of power.”

Leadership Must Make Sacrifices:

Former Anambra Governor Peter Obi, when asked for his reaction to the President’s convoy, stressed the importance of leaders leading by example.


Obi emphasized that it is not enough to ask Nigerians to make sacrifices; leaders themselves must visibly make sacrifices, as the people are suffering.

He called for leaders to demonstrate a behavior and public conduct that aligns with the needs of society, stating that leaders must not be the reason for the continued suffering of the citizens.


The Labour Party’s response to President Tinubu’s convoy highlighted their condemnation of what they deemed an excessive display of power.
