Buhari’s ex-aide taunts Peter Obi over breaking of Ramadan fast

Bashir Ahmad, a former aide to ex-President Muhammadu
Buhari, has mocked Peter Obi, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour
Party, following his breaking of Ramadan fast with the Muslim faithful in
Nasarawa State on Monday.


A video appeared on social media where Obi was seen sitting
in a mosque to have Iftar.


Iftar is the meal eaten by Muslims
to break their fast after sunset every day during Ramadan.


While describing the action, the former Anambra governor,
wrote on his X account in a series of tweets that it was an opportunity for him
“to perform a sacred duty in line with the Ramadan season.”


“I had the honour of travelling to Lafia in Nasarawa state,
where I had the privilege of meeting with the Emir of Lafia, Honorable Justice
Sidi Bage Muhammad JSC Rtd, a very revered, leader and also extended my
courtesy to Governor Abdullahi Sule.”


“This visit was more than a mere formality, it was a genuine
expression of my deep respect and unwavering solidarity with the community,”
Obi wrote.


Reacting to the gesture on X, Ahmad said Obi was engaging in
acting many scripts, questioning why he did not join Muslims to break Ramadan
fast when he was governor for eight years in Anambra.


According to Ahmad, the former governor travelled to Lafia,
the Nasarawa capital, to break fast when he could have done it in his home
state, criticizing him that he has started paying politics because of the 2027
general elections.


The former presidential aide wrote, “Peter Obi loves dramas;
he would have to act in many scripts from now to 2027 and still end up
producing an unsellable movie in the ballot boxes. I just watched his latest
hit, his visit to a mosque in Nyaya where he joined Muslims during their
breaking of the Ramadan fast.”


“For eight years as a governor, Obi didn’t deem it fit to
break fast with Muslims in Anambra even years after leaving office. 2027
politics is in the offing,” he added.


Meanwhile, Obi’s action has continued to generate mixed
reactions among Nigerians as some people commended him for displaying love and
tolerance, while some labelled the action as an eye service.
